Apple, during the iPhone SE unveiling event March, had revealed that the company's flagship Watch will be sold for $100 less than the base price.
It was earlier believed that the discount offer was restricted to America and European regions. However, International Business Times India has learned that the Indian arm of Apple has also slashed the Watch's price by Rs. 5,000.
However, this price cut is limited to Apple Watch Sport (38 mm) model only. The rest of the five models' prices will remain the same. Check out the updated prices of Apple Watch at the end of the article.
Apple Watch was originally unveiled in September 2014 and it was released in India in November, 2015. It comes packed with state-of-art technology-based Taptic Engine and a built-in speaker that together discreetly enable a new batch of alerts and notifications you can both hear and feel as the watch will vibrate each time. Apple has custom-designed its own S1 SiP (System in Package) to miniaturise an entire computer architecture on a single chip.
The retina display on Apple Watch features Force Touch, a technology that senses the difference between a tap and a press, providing a new way to quickly and easily access controls within apps.
It runs on the WatchOS (v2.2 released) user interface. It boasts the Digital Crown, a creative way to scroll, zoom and navigate fluidly, without much distraction on the display. The Digital Crown also serves as the Home button and also an easy access to Siri, voice assistant.
Connectivity features of Apple Watch include Wi-Fi 802.11b/g and Bluetooth 4.0 to pair seamlessly with your iPhone. It comes in three distinct collectable editions â€” Apple Watch, Apple Watch Sport and Apple Watch Edition â€” available in two different sizes, 38 mm and 42 mm.
Like all Apple devices, the Watch also comes encased in premium materials like metallic alloys with polished space-black stainless steel/space-gray/silver anodised aluminum and a special edition luxury model is said to be made of 18-karat rose or yellow gold.
Apple Watch is compatible with iPhone 5, iPhone 5c, iPhone 5s, iPhone 6 or iPhone 6 Plus running iOS v8.0 and later version.
