The Apple Watch goes up for pre-order this Friday the 10th of April and you will be able to try the device out in the Apple stores.
Apple’s CEO Tim Cook sent out a memo to Apple employees letting them know that they will be able to buy the Apple Watch for a 50% discount over the normal retail price.
I know that many of you have been looking forward to choosing an Apple Watch for yourselves, and we want to make it easy for you. Starting Friday, in countries where the watch is available for pre-order, a special Employee Purchase Plan will offer a 50% discount on any Apple Watch or Apple Watch Sport for your personal use.
The Apple CEO is obviously hoping that a 50% discount for employees on the Apple Watch will encourage them to buy the device, as the company obviously wants their retail store employees to be wearing the device when they are selling the devices to customers.
He also told Apple employees in his email that more than 1000 apps for Apple’s smartwatch have been submitted for approval in just 4 days.
