The Apple Watch is said to go on sale this April, and we're now hearing fresh news regarding how is Apple going to go about the merchandise of the device. As 9to5Mac reports, it seems that Apple plans to sell separately a variety of wristbands for the Apple Watch. Jordan Kahn said the following:
"Despite speculation to the contrary, Apple does in fact plan to sell an array of bands as separate accessories for the Apple Watch at launch, according to sources. So far Apple has only shown the Watch in pre-assembled collections, which reduces their potential for customization, but our sources say that Apple’s retail outlets will be stocked on day one with individual straps so customers can easily mix and match the looks of their Watches."
So far, Apple has displayed only preassembled watches, without mentioning whether the straps will be included or not. But if this report turns out to be true, then this means buyers will be able to customize whatever version of the smartwatch they purchase with their own band.
Therefore, this will allow users to make their watch look more unique. Of course, it remains to be seen how much will it cost users, but since Apple is promoting the device as a luxury gadget, expect to pay a nice buck.
