"How much will the Apple Watch cost?" The answer is that it costs anywhere from $349 to $10,000 depending on style.

The Sport edition "starts at $349 (£299)" and that's for the 38mm version. The 42mm size is slightly more at $399 (£339), according to Cook.

The stainless steel regular "Watch" collection starts at $549 (£479) and goes up to to $1099 (£949), depending on the Apple Watch size and band configuration.

The Watch Edition will be in limited supply at select Apple Stores and cost a whopping $10,000 (£8,000).


“It's the most personal device we have ever created.” Tim Cook said. Now let's see some detailed features of this remarkable device.

What is it?

It is an iOS 8.2-friendly watch that plays nice with your iPhone.

How long is the Apple Watch battery life running these apps?

The battery life is 18 hours, which is the length of a full day if you get a normal amount of sleep.

How does it communicate with iPhone?

The new version of iOS, out today, will come with an app for controlling the watch. As well as allowing you to browse compatible apps, you'll change settings for the watch on there. It will need to always be connected to the phone, using built-in wifi and Bluetooth. iPhone will download apps for Watch via Apple Watch Store.

To link the Apple Watch with your iPhone, you will need to have any of the following models: iPhone 5, iPhone 5c, iPhone 5s, iPhone 6 or iPhone 6 Plus running iOS 8.2 or later.

What can I use the Apple Watch for?

Apple Watch has a small microphone and speaker design. The mike lets you access Siri. The speaker allows you to hear a fellow Watch wearer's transmitted heartbeat, for instance. And if they work together, you can make phone calls in quiet locations.

You can connect an Apple Watch to another Apple Watch (direct communication). Draw a sketch and have it pop onto friends' watches. Or tap to get a friend's attention. Or send your heartbeat.

It will feature an as-yet-undisclosed storage capacity, allowing photos and music to be loaded onto the device. They can be accessed regardless of whether an iPhone is present.

You can use it to buy things through Apple Pay, if you're out on a jog without your phone and want to buy a drink at Whole Foods or another Pay-participating vendor.

The main use is to look for fitness. It's an advanced sports watch, giving you real-time stats for a variety of the most popular workouts. Over time, Apple Watch learns your activity and fitness levels to improve the accuracy of your measurements and suggest personalized all-day activity goals. It will even remind you if you've just been sitting down too long.

Is the watch really that accurate?

The Apple Watch keeps time to within 50 milliseconds of UTC, the universal time standard; however, accuracy depends on regular syncing with your iPhone.

"There's so much Watch can do that we haven't really even talked about," Tim Cook told USA TODAY Tuesday. Now that we have introduced the release date, pricing and features. Will you be pre-ordering or lining up for an Apple Watch?
