The newly launched smart watches will reportedly retail for up $17,000 each.
The watches will range from $349 to $17,000depending on the metals they are made from and the straps they are bought with.
The release that was held in San Francisco let admires and loathes know that there’s more than to Apple’s smart watches than bank breaking price.
Like the fact that all 38 watches come in different make/ versions, some are steel, aluminum, Gold cased and more.
Company’s CEO Tim Cook said that the watches will last owners around 18 hours before they require being charged and that they will take 2.5 hours to fully charge.
The watches have access to thousands of apps that have been specifically developed for them, companies including Facebook, we chat, and Instagram are among the companies that have developed apps for the smart watch.
There’s more to the smartwach than time.
Cook says the watch could be used to carry various tasks like
using the Watch as a means to open a compatible hotel room lock as an alternative to a key card
checking the name of a song via the app Shazam
opening an internet-connected garage door remotely
But all this awesomeness comes at a price, for users to be able to fully enjoy the smartwaches benefits they must have an iPhone to help carry out the tasks.
“When there were estimates of $700 or $800 for the basic stainless steel versions, I would have expected more than just a difference in materials,” said James Moar from Juniper Research to BBC.
“The fact Apple hasn’t done that is why there is no justification for a higher price.”
