Tim Cook Reveals Apple Watch Will Launch Outside the U.S. in April

Posted March 2, 2015 at 4:49pm by iClarified
Apple CEO Tim Cook has revealed that the Apple Watch will ship to more countries that just the United States in April, reports 9to5Mac.

Speaking at the Berlin Apple Store last week, Cook told employees that the watch would launch in Germany during the month of April. Although he didn't rule out the possibility of a staggered launch with the United States getting the watch earlier in April, his statement reveals that the company plants to launch the smartwatch more aggressively than its iPhone and iPad. When first launched, the iPhone was exclusive to the United States for a several months and the iPad was exclusive to the U.S. for over a month.

Sources tell the site that an April launch in Australia is probable and with the marketing pushes in U.K. and France, those countries are also likely to get the Apple Watch in April. Traditionally, Canada is in the first wave of countries. That has yet to be confirmed; however, there are reports that Canada could get Apple Pay as early as this month.

Finally, Apple is said to be heavily promoting the Apple Watch in China, so perhaps Apple is targeting an earlier than normal launch in that country. We should know more at the 'Spring Forward' media event scheduled for March 9th.

APPLE the modern 'cult'! Cults are based on charismatic leadership and often follow the routinization of charisma. That Charisma tends to manipulate, exploit, and control its members. Specific factors in cult behavior are said to include manipulative and authoritarian mind control over members, communal and totalistic organization, aggressive proselytizing, systematic programs of indoctrination, and perpetuation in middle-class communities.... The APPLE CULT!

No comment on apple watch battery life?, I think I would wait and see before buying. It would suck if you have to charge it everyday like iPhone. Like they said, never buy the first generation on any thing. They always have bugs or some king of problem.

Depends on what you do with your phone. Maybe Apple watch can take advantage of it to save battery, or better yet, put battery cases on it like people have been doing for iphone, or even better, use ampy for your iphone so you can do more things with it alongside Apple watch doing a few things. Btw it's said the watch will last up to a day. I hope people can make chargers for it like I mentioned but as long as I can read my heart rate, then I will buy.
