At last, the Apple Watch has arrived, becoming available for preorder on April 10th, and in stores April 14th.
Now comes the hard part… choosing your watch.
At LifeDaily we are here to help, so we’re going to break it down for you, nice and simple.
There are three different models in the collection:
Apple Sport Watch
This is the lowest priced watch in Apple’s collection. This watch is good for fitness buffs, or those of you who have to have an apple watch, but are on a tight budget. The Sport Watch is priced at $349 for the 38mm version and $399 for the 42mm version, it has an aluminum case (in silver and space gray), features Apple’s Ion-X glass display, and ships with a fluoroelastomer Sport Band– five different colors available (white, black, neon blue, neon green, coral).
Seems ironic that they couldn’t come up with a different name for this mid range watch, but most likely it’s part of a marketing tactic. Nevertheless, this more classic watch is priced at $549-$1,099 all depending on the case size and band style you chose. This watch has a stainless steel case (instead of aluminum), sapphire crystal covering the display, and black accent on the digital crown. The strap options include a stainless steel link, Milanese loop bracelet, or sport or leather band. The band options for this watch appear to have the largest selection out of all three watches.
Apple Edition Watch
This Edition watch flat out comes down to price, ranging from $10,000-$17,000. Each Apple Edition Watch has a case crafted from 18-karat gold that Apple claims their metallurgists have developed to be up to twice as hard as standard gold. The display is protected by polished sapphire crystal, as well as an exquisitely designed band in white, black, midnight blue, rose gray, and red. If you have the money to spend, then you should opt for this watch. It’s certainly the most visually appealing watch in the collection. Hopefully it’s able to stand the test of time, and not have to be thrown away in a few years when a newer version comes out.
Each watch comes with a variety of designs- from traditional designs to playful characters, so that you can choose the colors and design that is best suited for you.
Under the hood of these watches, the hardware is exactly the same. So, the $10,000 watch will function the same as the $349 watch. The only differences between the three models are the cosmetic ones.
Storage and battery life is the same across the board- 8GB of storage: 2GB of music, 75MB for photos, and up to 18 hrs of battery life on a single charge.
Very simply, the Apple Watch is an extension of your IPhone. You will be able to make calls, monitor your heart rate and pulse, see certain notifications and access desired apps.
