I understood the rumors starting to leak about the prices for the Apple Watch and Watch Edition being a bit higher than expected.
The $10k price for the Edition models shouldn’t be surprising anyone. The ideal Edition customer isn’t going to be interested in the technology, they’re going to be more interested in the visual look and the gold composition of the watch.
But a grand for my ideal steel face/steel link Apple Watch? Yikes.
Looks like I’ll probably be aiming for one of these instead:
That’s not really a bad thing–especially if they all contain the same level of hardware and support. It’s more of a fashion tax above all else, really. I can go without looking fashionable and still be a decent human being.
Or just mix and match the two together and upgrade the band later on? I’m not sure. I guess I’m going to have to get my hands on one to see. In any case, it’ll more than likely end up being an early birthday present for myself.
