 Watch

After months of anticipation, the  Watch is finally out! Pre-orders for the luxurious watch made by tech giant Apple started on April 10th and it was released to the public two weeks later on the 24th of the same month. Apple is offering three main 'styles' for the watch, each varying in the quality of the materials, and of course, the price. The three base models are the  Watch Sport, the  Watch, and the  Watch Edition, of which 38 'sub-models' are derived. All three base models have the same basic features, such as heart rate monitor, a multi-touch glass screen, the obvious watch functionality, and many other features. They come in 38mm and 42mm watch cases. 

The Apple Watch Sport is available in ten different models and starts at $349. The case is made out of anodized aluminum and what Apple likes to call Ion-X glass. The 'regular' Apple Watch is available in 20 different configurations and starts at $549. It contains a stainless steel case with a sapphire crystal display. Finally, the Apple Watch Edition, which starts at $10,000 and goes up to an unbelievable price point of $17,000, is made of a custom gold alloy Apple claims to be "twice as hard as standard gold" and the same sapphire crystal display on the  Watch. The  Watch Edition is offered in 8 different configurations, in both 18-karat rose gold and 18-karat yellow gold.

Enough information about the Apple Watch... However, here's a 10-minute video in case you want some more information. But now, it's your turn. What do you think about the Apple Watch? Perhaps is it too expensive or do you think the price point is reasonable? Are you planning on getting one? Feel free to answer these questions or just respond with something related to the Apple Watch.

    1. This is amazing I am really impressed with the style of the watch. A firend of fine has a sister who just bought the gold one but I think the price is ridiculose. Neverthless a very nice watch.

  2. I am also incredibly excited that the  Watch came out. My love of technological apparatus that are both fashionable and functional is unparalleled. I am sure the  Watch is just what humanity needs at this moment. I can't imagine anyone in the modern age living and thriving if they lack this product, especially because of its basic features such as the heart-rate monitor, multi-touch glass screen, and watch functionality. The  Watch is heralding in a new era in human development. Hail corporate.

    4. I agree with Isabella. I think the watch is way to expensive and you can get the same things with an Iphone. It's cool because it is in watch-form, but I still think it is too expensive.

  4. I've heard a bit about the Apple Watch, and it looks pretty cool. Personally, I would never even dream of spending that much money on a watch - but kudos to those who do and will! It'll be interesting to see how well this does. :)

    1. I too don't see myself spending that much on a watch, yet I find it incredible that technology is developing this much. That's exciting.

  5. for the Price of the watch you are paying for the technology and the name. unlike other watch companies they are more expencive and it can cost as much as a car and it doesnt have the technology that it should have

    1. It's true the watch is extremely expensive, but it's exaggerated to say it costs as much as a car. That would be one broken down car.

  6. I think you are the one who decides to buy the watch at this price, or just wait until the oriental mates make the replica :)

    1. Yeah The watch looks amazing but the price is exaggerated and expensive more than a gadget , I think that is a luxury. I'm waiting for the asian version.

    2. Yeah you are right. I am not interested in Apple, but it would great to have it.

  7. I believe your are paying for the brand not for the watch because you can easily buy a better thing. I would not buy this. I dislike it.

    1. I agree. I don't like the watch. It's like the watch is super expensive only because of their brand name. I don't like the fact that many things such as watches of expensive brands are super expensive because of their brand name!! That is so crazy. I think I was too repetitive, but this is how crazy this is.

  8. This is too expensive! The only people that would buy this are like rich people and people obsessed with apple. On another note, I am super happy this is my last comment of the year. :)
