Apple surprised us all last week because most rumors seemed to suggest that its iWatch would not be unveiled until early 2015. However, we were given an insight into their new device, which is simply called the Apple watch, although its release is still unknown to us at this time. We do know many aspects of the new device, such as its starting price, but not for the 18-karat version.
Estimated Apple 18k gold Watch price — While we do not have any official information as to the cost of the luxury version of Apple’s Watch, TechCrunch has learned that it could cost about $1,200.
The tech website has been told by jewelers who have a lot of experience with the material Apple will be using on the more expensive Watch, although we need to tell you that the price could be lower, which we hope it is. $1,200 for a watch seems like such a lot of money, although there are some people who pay several thousand dollars for a watch.
If this is truly the price, then the 18k gold Apple Watch will be aimed at a niche market, one that many of us do not fall into. Let’s not get too ahead of ourselves though, as there is a good chance the watch could be gold-plated, which would then give it a much lower price, but how low we cannot say.
It will be interesting to see if Apple will have a success with its new smartwatch, although we now believe that these new devices have long past the fad stage and are now starting to grow in popularity. I first assumed that these watches would not catch on, but I was wrong and I’m sure many of your were as well.
