Today is all about smart watches as we get ready to welcome Apple’s new wearable. We are also hearing about a new Motorola smart watch.
Are you ready to get yourself a brand-spanking new Apple Watch? It will cost you a pretty penny, but we know it could be worth it to many of you. April 10th has been set as the day when you will be able to put your name on one of these.
Today we are getting another bit of detail as to when you can pre-order the Apple Watch, though. It turns out pre-ordering will go live as soon as April 10th starts, at 12:01 AM (Pacific).
Opinion: I am sure more than enough people will actually be staying up all night just to be among the first to pre-order the Apple Watch. I mean, come on. People camp out for days to get Apple products.
By the way, if you are getting an Apple Watch you best buy insurance. These things are pricey, so we know many of you will be looking into getting AppleCare+. We still don’t know exactly how much AppleCare+ for these devices will cost, but 9To5Mac’s sources seem to have a clue.
It seems the Apple Watch Sport’s Apple Care package will cost $59, while the regular Apple Watch’s will cost $79. Now, what about those of you who don’t skimp out and are swimming in cash? If you are goign for an Apple Watch Edition, be prepared to not only pay $10,000+ for your watch, but also $999 for AppleCare+.
Opinion: Man… $1000 just for a smart watch insurance. Life must be nice for the rich!
The Moto 360 is awesome, but we can all agree it’s about time for an update, right? Motorola can’t keep riding the same train for much longer, and the latest rumors suggest that they are getting ready to launch a brand new smart watch.
The guys at Phandroid have gotten a tip on a said Motorola “Smelt”. The source is said to be a “popular app developer” who recently noticed said device pinging his Android developer console. It’s said to come with Android 5.1, a 360x360p display anda said “armeabi-v7a” processor powering it.
Opinion: This really doesn’t tell us anything special, but at least we know a new watch could be coming. Hopefully more details come soon?
