Apple CEO Tim Cook has sent an internal memo to company employees revealing that they will be eligible for a 50% discount on the Apple Watch, reports 9to5Mac. Those employees who want to spring for the gold Edition will get $550 off.

Cook also revealed that more than 1000 watch apps were submitted in the first four days of open submissions.

You can find the full memo below...


The day we’ve all been waiting for is almost here: Apple Watch is ready to ship.

Our retail stores are training for a whole new way to engage customers and help them experience Apple’s most personal product yet. On Friday, in over four hundred stores across four continents, we’ll open our doors to people who want to try on Apple Watch for the first time and start deciding which one is right for them.

Tens of millions of people have seen our keynotes and demonstration videos about the watch, and there’s much more to come. Some of the most innovative developers in the world are working on new experiences designed specifically for Apple Watch. More than one thousand apps were submitted in just four days last week when the App Store started accepting them, and the rate of submissions has only been climbing since then.

I know that many of you have been looking forward to choosing an Apple Watch for yourselves, and we want to make it easy for you. Starting Friday, in countries where the watch is available for pre-order, a special Employee Purchase Plan will offer a 50% discount on any Apple Watch or Apple Watch Sport for your personal use.

As we introduce the watch in more countries, the special pricing for employees will be offered in those countries as well. Discounts will begin at pre-order and last for 90 days after availability. AppleWeb has more details, so I invite you to check it out.

Our products enrich people’s lives like no others, and we think Apple Watch is going to delight our customers in ways people can’t yet imagine. We want you to share in that experience right alongside them.

Congratulations to everyone who has worked so hard for years to help this product reach our customers. And thanks in advance to the thousands of retail employees around the world who will start placing it on people’s wrists starting Friday.

I love the comments here. It's like entering a world where no one has any brains. People with no life and no money display thier stupidity by posting and then kick back thinking they have actually contributed to a conversation. Let me thank all you morons for making this site the best comedy on the net. btw You know Tim Cook gets up every morning and the first thing he does is check this site for all your valuable offerings. Lucas you win todays Complete Idiot Award as your post exemplifies how outright stupid you are. LOL

The only comments that go above and beyond are yours. They make the most irony to take it to a new level. Sums it all up taking the words right out.
