Apple Watch release date and price confirmed

Apple Watch will go on sale on Friday 24 April, with prices starting at £299, Apple has announced.

The new smartwatch is available in three collections, Apple Watch Sport, from £299; Apple Watch, starting at £479; and Apple Watch Edition, a premium option with 18-carat gold casing. Apple Watch Edition starts at £8,000 and ranges up to £13,500.

The functionality of all the different Apple Watch models is the same – it’s only the casing and straps that affect the price.

The Apple Watch comes with watch faces in two sizes: either 42mm or 38mm, with the larger models costing around £40 more than the equivalent smaller models.

All of the 38 different Apple Watch models are available to preorder now, and they’ll be in Apple Stores for previews from 10 April.

Apple says the watch battery will last for around 18 hours with normal use, although it also says the 42mm watch has longer battery life. It takes around two and a half hours to fully charge the battery.

A Power Reserve facility means the phone will continue to display the time for up to 72 hours after other functions have powered down.

You’ll need an iPhone 5 or later to pair with the Apple Watch in order to use all of its apps. Apps such as Instagram, Nike+ Running, Shazam and Twitter have already been announced.
