In less then an hour, Apple will be taking the stage in sunny San Francisco to unveil the Apple Watch. The online store has been put into maintenance mode and will likely be back up moments after the 1PM ET announcement.
The Spring Forward event is being live streamed as we previously reported and will feature the three new watch announcements..
The Apple Watch collection features highly polished stainless steel and space black stainless steel cases. The display is protected by sapphire crystal. And there’s a choice of three different leather bands, a link bracelet, a Milanese loop, and a band made from high-performance fluoroelastomer.
The Sport collection cases are made from lightweight anodized aluminum in silver and space grey. The display is protected by strengthened Ion-X glass. And the matching fluoroelastomer band comes in five different colours.
The Edition collection features six uniquely elegant expressions of Apple Watch. Each has a watch case crafted from 18-karat gold that our metallurgists have developed to be up to twice as hard as standard gold. The display is protected by polished sapphire crystal. And an exquisitely designed band provides a striking complement.
Our guess is we could see pre-orders as early as today if not Friday so if you are looking to sink some cash into a wearable this week, you may be able to do so soon.
Stay tuned to this post for updates as they become available.
