The Apple Watch is making its rounds worldwide, now that the fruit company’s first smartwatch has been released in its home country. The next country in line to get the device is India, and Apple has tipped its own release to the public by way of its own website.
When you visit the Apple India website, you’ll discover that Apple has the date “available 6/11” at the top, right above the Apple Watch photo. Of course, you have to read the date as the day, then the month, and, read in this way, the date is November 6th. That’s just one week from today.
Apple Watch already has explosive sales, makes India release perfect timing
The Apple Watch is Apple’s first-generation wrist wearable, and works with the iPhone 5, iPhone 5s, iPhone 6, iPhone 6 Plus, iPhone 6s, and iPhone 6s Plus. It’s been said that the device provides about 5 hours of on-screen time (SOT) and 18 hours of battery life, half of the battery life provided by Android Wear smartwatches such as the Moto 360 2015 edition and the LG G Watch R, among others. Apple’s own Bubble UI (as it’s been called, not the formal label) is somewhat cluttered and may seem overwhelming to new buyers, but it hasn’t stopped Apple Watch sales: The latest reports from Korea show that the Apple Watch reached an additional 4.5 million sales in Q3 2015, with Apple now holding 72.8% of smartwatch market share. Apple has been said to have sold at least 6 million smartwatch already within the first six months of market availability. At the current trend, Apple will have sold over 10 million smartwatches by the end of the year.
There have been no prices yet given for the Apple Watch for India buyers, but if you’ve got relatives, friends, and acquaintances there, tell ‘em the Apple Watch is coming.
