Apple has only announced pricing for their Apple Watch Sport, the entry level smartwatch from Apple will retail for $349.
The company will also launch a stainless steel version with stainless steel straps and an 18K gold Apple Watch edition.
We previously heard that the 18K gold Apple Watch would retail for around $5,000, although according to Daring Fireball’s John Gruber, it may cost a little more than this.
I can see which way the wind is blowing. For months I’ve been asking friends who might know — or know someone else who might know, or even know someone who knows someone who might know — whether my guess of $5,000 is too high for the Edition starting price. The answer has always been “No”. But the way I’ve been told “No” has given me the uneasy feeling that I’ve been asking the wrong question. I should have been asking if $5,000 is too low.
I now think Edition models will start around $10,000 — and, if my hunch is right about bands and bracelets, the upper range could go to $20,000. I was off by a factor of two, and my friend Vincent, I think, nailed it back on the day Apple Watch was introduced.
The first Apple smartwatch will launch in April, and we should have more details on the pricing of the other two models. What do you guys think? Will Apple be charging more than $10,000 for the gold model, leave a comment and let us know.
