Apple has plans to release its first wearable device, the Apple Watch in March. According to a new report from 9to5Mac, Apple is likely to make its Apple Watch available in stores by the end of March.
If the report is real, Apple has some plans to conduct an extensive testing program to make Apple Retail Store employees familiar with the new product category. “One or two representatives from many Apple Stores in the United States, depending on store and market size, will be sent to Apple offices in either Cupertino, California or Austin, Texas to learn first-hand about the Watch. These training programs will take place between February 9th and February 16th,” according to the report.
Priced at $349 for the starting model, the Apple Watch is the first new product to be developed and introduced under Chief Executive Officer Tim Cook’s reign, citing it as the next chapter in Apple’s history. The device tethers to the iPhone and will combine health and fitness tracking including the communications.
The Apple Watch is compatible with the iPhone 6, iPhone 6 Plus, iPhone 5, 5s or 5c. It will come in two sizes, so the watch won’t feel giant on smaller hands, as some competing watches do and I just can’t wait to get my hands on it!
