Apple Watch release date drawing nearer

Last month Apple CEO, Tom Cook, said the company would likely start selling its highly anticipated smartwatch this April.

Today, however, Apple sent out invitations for a March 9 press release for the Yerba Buena Center for the Arts Theater in San Francisco, a familiar venue for Apple.

Officially unveiled last fall alongside the iPhone 6 and 6 Plus, Apple’s smartwatch continues to be one of the most anticipated products of 2015. Late in 2014, a software development kit was released so developers could create Apple Watch apps prior to the product launch.

The stainless steel Apple Watch, with its crystal-covered display, will start at $349 US (approximately £220 or AU$380) and go up from there to their prime 18-karat gold edition.

The voice activated with swipe-to-glance watch features a host of devices such as a music player similar to iPod, a fitness tracker complete with heart-rate monitoring, the ability to send and receive messages, audio recordings and calls, as well as a handheld portal to other apps.

Oh yeah. And it can also make payments to Apple Pay as well as control your Apple television and even act as a remote for other connected smart-home devices.
