New York: Technology enthusiasts in India will have to wait longer to get their hands on the Apple Watch as the country does not feature in the nine countries chosen by the iconic brand to unveil its much-awaited smartwatch.
However, the US-based firm will make the Apple Watch available from April 10 for preview in its home ground as well as China, Japan, Hong Kong, Australia, Canada, France, Germany and the UK.
The smart watch will be up for purchase from April 24. The Cupertino-headquartered firm took the covers off its Apple Watch at an event in San Francisco yesterday, along with two other key announcements – a revamped MacBook range and a health-centred initiative ‘ResearchKit’.
According to analysts, the Apple Watch may cost well over Rs 30,000 for the base model.
They are of the view that the watch is expected to hit market in July this year. However, a section of the market feels that considering the growing importance of India, the watch could see its India debut even in June.
