Apple just announced that they will start selling the “Apple Watch” in Italy, Mexico, Singapore, South Korea, Spain, Switzerland and Taiwan beginning Friday, June 26. It will be available through the Apple Online Store , Apple’s retail stores and select Apple Authorized Resellers.
Jeff Williams, Apple’s senior vice president of Operations said:
The response to Apple Watch has surpassed our expectations in every way, and we are thrilled to bring it to more customers around the world. “We’re also making great progress with the backlog of Apple Watch orders, and we thank our customers for their patience. All orders placed through May, with the sole exception of Apple Watch 42 mm Space Black Stainless Steel with Space Black Link Bracelet, will ship to customers within two weeks. At that time, we’ll also begin selling some models in our Apple Retail Stores.”
This is definitely a great news for Apple Fans and those who are eager to try it out before buying it as the watch will be available in retail stores as well. Even though the watch been making lot of noises, the product IMO is still too early to invest in smart watch. However what looks promising is the way we are seeing more and more apps getting deployed. This is a strong sign that the next version of watch will be even better.
