More New Apple Watch Models Unveiled
The Apple Watch Hermès collection wasn’t the only big news to come out of Wednesday’s press event. Soon you won’t have to put down ten grand to sport some Apple Watch gold on your wrist as a less expensive model will be in stores later this month.
Going on sale September 16 is an Apple Sport model with a rose gold or gold colored aluminum casing for just $349, the starting price for the original silver or space grey version. That’s for the 38mm model, with 42mm models slightly higher at $399. These new cases come with a choice of high-performance fluoroelastomer Sport Bands in antique white, stone, lavender or midnight blue. The introduction of a “real” golden Apple Watch should put a dent in the sales of those gold-plated versions being offered by some enterprising jewelry sellers.
If gold isn’t your thing, there are even more new color choices for the Apple Watch. The Space Black Apple Watch is now offered with a black Sport band. There are also new bands for the Apple Watch and Apple Watch Sport collections that can be purchased separately plus new colors of fog, turquoise, vintage rose and walnut.
The Apple Watch Edition will be available with an 18-karat rose gold case and midnight blue classic band. Another addition to the line is the Apple Watch with stainless steel case and saddle brown leather band for $649 with 38mm case or $699 for the 42mm model.
Also new is a Product Red Sport watch with a stainless steel case and two-toned red leather strap. A portion of the proceeds from the sales of this model will go to the Global Fund to fight AIDS. These sell for $549 and $599.
These new Apple Watch models can be viewed now at the Apple online store.
