US carriers to start offering the Apple Watch?
Following reports that Apple Watch did not meet up with sales expectations and that figures are falling drastically as each day goes by, Apple began offering the smartwatch via third party retailers like Bestbuy.
Although Bestbuy is the only third party store where the Watch is officially available, Apple’s first smart wearable device can be obtained via many other sources (cough…Amazon..cough..eBay..cough…others…) so the issue of availability can’t be used as an excuse for the Watch’s lackluster performance in the market.
Finally, Cupertino is going to employ the services of US carriers to retail Apple Watches. 9to5Mac has obtained an internal document which specifies that Apple Watch will debut on Sprint on September 25th. Keep in mind that 25th September is the date when the Apple iPhone 6s and iPhone 6s Plus will go on sale so it makes sense that Apple Watch will reach new margins on that same day.
The document revealed that Sprint will offer several variants and accessories of Apple Watch, noting that their prices will be similar to what is obtained at Apple stores and Bestbuy. For example, the Apple Watch Sport in 38mm and 42mm frames will cost $349.99 and $399.99 respectively. Apple Watch will cost $549.99 (38mm) and $599.99 (42mm) while Sprint’s pricing of Apple Watch Edition wasn’t available on the memo.
Sometime ago, T-Mobile CEO John Legere hinted that his company will retail the Apple Watch but did not disclose a particular date. It is naturally expected that you’ll find Apple Watches on sale at T-Mobile stores nationwide after September 24.
