    Introducing Apple Watch

    It’s been a long time coming, but Apple’s much-rumored wearable is finally here. The new Apple Watch promises to be Apple’s biggest release since the original iPhone, offering multiple configurations and price points; and though we know what the different models will be called (Apple Watch, Apple Watch Sport and Apple Watch Edition) and what differentiates them (the Sport will feature an aluminum encasing and scratch-resistant Ion-X glass, the standard Apple Watch gets a stainless body and Sapphire crystal, while the Edition gets an 18k gold encasing and Sapphire crystal), all we know about pricing is that they will start at $349–though you can expect the Edition to retail for much more.
