Apple fans are one step closer to the long-anticipated Apple Watch. Customers may pre-order Apple's new wearable on Friday, with deliveries promised starting April 24.
If Apple Watch is on your mind, then this tip is for you! I'll step through the wild range of prices and explain the differences among the choices you must make. Plus, I'll explain some of the uses and apps that most buyers will probably find practical or interesting. So before you pull out your wallet to plunk down a few hundred or a few thousand dollars on Apple Watch, keep reading for the information you need to make the best choice.
Where and when?
Long lines of loyal Apple fans stretched down the block and around the corner have been a staple of Apple product launches for years. However, unlike the iPhone crowds we've seen, the Watch launch might be a bit different. Besides accepting pre-orders in Apple's retail stores, the company will also take orders online. The starting gun fires at 12:01 a.m. Pacific Time, Friday, April 10. Customers have two delivery options. Online shoppers may have the Watch shipped to them. Brick-and-mortar shoppers are asked to make a reservation to buy Apple Watch in a retail store.
But here's my first question: Without huge lines of eager buyers, what does Apple have up its sleeve to lock in morning news coverage? I can't wait to see!
