Apple Watch went on sale. Samsung showed a tizer of the new smart hours
After several months of advertizing and two weeks of advanced orders of Apple Watch at last arrived in world sale. Clever hours are the first new product of the "apple" company after arrival to a position of chief executive officer Tim Cook.
As reports the edition Reuters, Apple Watch appeared on sale in a number of expensive boutiques and department stores, such as The Corner in Berlin, Maxfield in Los Angeles and Dover Street Market in Tokyo and London where they are positioned as a modern accessory.
Apple Watch in the retail shops decided not to sell Apple yet. The company sends all the clients in online shop. The Apple counts that such offer will allow to avoid turns at cash desks of shops where usually (during start of new iPhone and iPad) huge lines of buyers are built.
Absence of turns in Apple shops complicates an assessment of demand for Apple Watch which are delivered in 38 variations at the price from 349 dollars (Sport version) to 10 000 dollars and (Gold Edition version) is higher.
Analysts with the Wall Street offer the most different estimates of sales. So the FBR Capital Markets consulting firm increased the forecast from 17 million units to 20 million.
Some days before the beginning of sales of Apple declared that her some clients will receive smart hours quicker than the promised. Earlier in the company predicted that at the moment of product start demand for Apple Watch will exceed the offer.
In day of start of Apple Watch Samsung also was noted. The company published a tizer of the new watch with the round display. Samsung also promised to let out a package of development tools of the software for foreign developers before start of sales of a new gadget.
The Samsung portfolio already totals six smart hours. The company let out the first such device in 2013. By estimates of analysts of IHS, last year to the world market about 3,6 million smart hours, from which 1 million production Samsung were put.
The South Korean producer did not begin to share details about the new device. As it was declared earlier, hours leave in the near future.
