Apple Watch Event: Live streaming and 12-inch Retina MacBook Air introduction

Apple watch event is going to begin within hours and the whole world seems to be talking about it and nothing else right now. People are very excited about the watch they have been promised for a very long time.

Though many people are claiming that this will be just a fashion statement, instead of being a great gadget, this is not dampening the spirit of Apple fans across the world.

This is the first new product from the Cupertino based tech giant that is experiencing its best days in years. Its new smartphones including iPhone 6 and iPhone 6 Plus are selling like hotcakes and their numbers have amazed even most optimistic market analysts.

People are excited and almost everyone seems to be taking about the features and specifications of the all new Apple Watch. People are actually wondering as to how Apple smartwatch price will be revealed and where it will be available.

Apple bosses seem to be super excited about the new product. Tim Cook reportedly told his staff in London, “We’ve never sold anything as a company that people could try on before”. This is actually not true and Apple has never brought out a completely new product thus far. What they actually do, never the less, is that they make things better than the rest and then repackage it impressively.

This is a completely new product from Apple in as many as five years after the launch of iPad. In fact it will be company’s new product in a very long time. To conquer the marketplace, the watch will have to appeal not only as a gadget but as a fashion statement, a fact tacitly acknowledged by Apple’s decision to launch its advertising campaign with a 12-page insert in the March issue of Vogue. The company isn’t talking about plans for marketing the Apple Watch in advance of it’s much-touted “Spring Forward” event on Monday, but it clearly intends to keep a tight grip on initial sales and distribution, leaving many retailers guessing about when — or if — they’ll be able to sell it.

As far as its availability is concerned reports suggest that Best Buy will not be getting the product. Other large retailers, including Macy’s, Saks 5th Avenue, Bloomingdales and Barney’s said they had no immediate plans to carry the watch. Target and Nordstrom,along with all the major phone carriers, declined to comment on their plans, though a source with knowledge of the situation said Nordstrom has engaged in discussions with Apple. “Apple is being cautious. There are too many unknowns around how this product will perform,” said Van Baker, research vice-president, technology research firm Gartner Inc.

Reports suggest that Apple will be selling the product in its stores. The Telegraph, which sent a reporter with the CEO to the company’s Covent Garden store, reported that he explained to the staff that selling the watch might require “tweaking the experience in the store.” In the absence of hard information about what the tweaks might look like, speculation has been intense. The Washington Post last week suggested that Apple might add carpeting and mirrors and change store lighting to enhance the watch-buying experience.
