Apple unveils $10,000 smartwatch

Apple Watch pre-orders will open on 10 April 2015, and the devices will become available on 24 April 2015, Apple CEO Tim Cook has announced.

This comes after Cook said in January during their first quarterly earnings call for 2015 that the Apple Watch would go on sale from April 2015.

Cook confirmed the 38mm version of the anodised aluminium Apple Watch Sport will cost $349, while a 42mm version will cost $399.
