When the Apple Watch was announced back in September, the company remained bullish on the availability, hinting it at being in “early 2015”. Now we know, thanks to Tim Cook, that it will finally be coming in the market in the April of 2015. That’s a month later than what we had initially expected it to be.
“The creativity and software innovation going on around Apple Watch is incredibly exciting,” Tim Cook has said. “We cant wait for our customers to experience them when Apple Watch becomes available.”Development for the Apple Watch is right on schedule,”
It requires iOS 8.2 to run and will cost $350 for the starting model, in case you’re wondering which is quite much but we’ll have to wait without making any judgement. Industry insiders expect shipments to rise to as much as 3 million units in the first fiscal year.
The Watch was described by Apple as its most personal device. It will come in three different configurations: Standard, Sport and Edition, and two different sizes: 38 mm and 42 mm.
Battery life, which is the main issue with such products doesn’t sound too hopeful but in typical Apple fashion, it has inductive charging. It is compatible with iPhones 5 and above. Later last year, it was recognized as one of the 25 inventions of the year by Time, quite an achievement for a product which costs $350 and hasn’t been released yet!
