Apple Watch Will Launch in Spring 2015

Apple Watch Will Launch in Spring 2015 [Leaks]

In an effort to squash the hype surrounding Google’s Android Wear project, Apple felt it necessary to do something that is unlike the Cupertino giant. Knowing that a late launch in the wearable category may cause them to miss out on Android users contemplating iOS and vice versa, Apple announced a product long before Apple would be able to deliver it. That was back on September 9th that Apple originally announced the Apple Watch with the expected release date of “early 2015″.

For those of you who would like a more specific time frame than early 2015, you’re in luck. As luck would happen to have it, an internal document from Apple has been leaked over to the guys at 9to5Mac. The internal document (pictured below) was sent out to Apple employees by Angela Ahrendts who just so happens to be Apple’s retail senior vice president.

The note reads:

So, again, we do — you guys were hired because you’re the best people in the world. And you know how to service customers, but we are spring a marathon right now, and it’s not going to stop. Right? We’re going into the holidays, we’ll go into Chinese New Year, and then we’ve got a new watch launch coming in the spring. So, I just, I really wanted to say, stop for a moment, take a breath. Realize that every customer you touch — and again I know you know this, but you’re really busy — so just every customer that you touch, how do you make sure that they will walk away feeling very different, very positive, than before they walked into that store or they interacted with you?

Given what was said by Ahrendts, the earliest we will see of the Apple watch will be by March. We know that the Chinese New Year is on February 19th, so it’s not likely that you’ll be able to snatch this one as a Valentine’s gift for your loved one.

If you’re interested in the Apple Watch, the cheapest available price will be $350.
