Whenever it spoke about the upcoming release of the Apple Watch, Tim Cook and his colleagues mentioned just 'early 2015'. But now it seems we have a slightly more precise date, albeit nothing is too clear at the moment.
According to Apple's Senior Vice President of Retail and Online Stores Angela Ahrendts, the Apple Watch will be launching in the Spring of next year. This is later in 2015 than some had originally anticipated, as 'early 2015' for many meant January or February.
Ahrendts mentioned the timeframe to retail employees in a video message, a transcript of which was provided by a source of 9to5Mac publication. Ahrendts stated the following:
“So, again, we do - you guys were hired because you're the best people in the world. And you know how to service customers, but we are sprinting a marathon and it's not going to stop. Right? We're going into the holidays, we'll go into Chinese New Year, and then we've got a new watch launch coming in the spring”
Apple will be training its retail employees on how to introduce customers to the Apple Watch as Apple Retail Stores will allow customers to try on the wearable device and experience the different sizes and bands offered.
