“Apple’s upcoming gold smartwatch could set you back $4,000 to $5,000, when it goes on sale next spring,” Patrick Seitz reports for Investor’s Business Daily. “That’s according to French website iGen… [which] cited what it called a trusted source for information on pricing for the Apple Watch.”
“The aluminum model will be priced starting at $349 and the stainless steel model will start at $500, iGen said,” Seitz reports. “Some price estimates for the gold Apple Watch have gone as high as $10,000.”
“The iGen report said Apple is targeting a Valentine’s Day launch for the Apple Watch,” Seitz reports. “Apple’s head of retail, Angela Ahrendts, earlier this week said the launch would be ‘in the spring.’ Valentine’s Day is Saturday, Feb. 14. Spring officially starts March 20.”
