Apple will start offering ‘Apple Watch Basics’ classes in some of its retail stores from 24 April, says a report in MacRumors.
The classes are aimed at helping consumers learn how to use the Apple Watch and according to the report, select stores in the US have already started offering these workshops.
The report notes, “Workshops take place at 1.5 hour intervals all day long in most locations and are also available on Saturday and Sunday. It appears that some locations may also be offering extended hours to allow more time for hosting workshops.”
It was earlier reported by Telegraph that Apple Inc’s watches will not be available to buy in-store in May, according to a memo from Apple retail chief Angela Ahrendts.
Customers will be asked to order online to “get customers the model they want earlier and faster,” according to the memo posted by the Telegraph. Deliveries of the watches will begin on April 24.
The Apple Watch comes in two sizes 38 millimeters and 42 millimeters. The larger one costs $50 more in most cases. There are three versions of the Apple Watch to choose from for customers.
The cheapest is the Apple Watch Sport edition which has an aluminum case. The smaller version costs $349, and the large one is $399. It comes in five different coloured bands.
The second Apple Watch is the one that has a stainless steel case. The price is $549 for the smaller model and $599 for the larger one. Depending on the kind of band you go for, the Apple Watch Steel Edition could cost as high as $1,099.
The third and final version is the Apple Watch Edition style which is made of 18-karat gold alloy. It’s $10,000 for a small version, while the large one costs $12,000. Again depending on the band that you pick, the Apple Watch Edition could cost as much as $17,000.
