The new wearables will be the Apple Watch, the Apple Watch Sport and the Apple Watch Edition, where the former comes with a metallic surface and band while Watch Sport will have an anodized aluminium frame, with the Watch Edition coming in solid 18-karat yellow or rose gold.
As expected from Apple’s first true wearable, the device will not just handle your regular notifications and fitness functions, but has a ton of customiseable faces as well as a rather unique Digital Touch feature that lets you send a sketch,a tap or even your heartbeat to other people wearing the Apple Watch.
The Apple Watch Sport will be starting at $349 (RM 1284) for the 38mm model and $399 (RM 1468)for the 42mm model, in a variety of colourful bands to choose from.
The stainless steel Apple Watch on the other hand, will start at $549 (RM 2016)for the 38mm model and $599 (RM 2204) for the 42mm model, with prices ranging up to $1,049 (RM 3860)and $1,099 (RM 4044) depending on the band they’re paired with.
Pre-orders and previews will become available starting 10 April while the actual ship date for the devices will be 24 April in nine countries; Australia, Hong Kong, Canada, Japan, China, Germany, France, the United Kingdom and the United States. The new wearables will range from $349 to over $10,000 a pop depending on the model with the Watch Edition only being available in select stores only. But when will the watches hit South East Asia we don’t yet know, but we’ll let you know as soon as we do.
