Apple Inc has now confirmed the availability of its very first wearable, Apple Watch, on the 24th April 2015. The very first smart watch from the company will be arriving in three different categories with starting price of $349, which goes up to $17,000 a unit.

However, Apple Inc is going to break the legacy it maintains in the iPhone sales. There isn’t going to be a first come first serve sale, but Watch will be available for sale to those who reserved one themselves for it. Apparently, the company is trying to maintain the demand to supply ratio under the control.

Users first need to register themselves and reserve a place before they could walk in and buy the very first wearable from the company. Cupertino giant is probably going to fire a product registration web page for the customers register themselves.

Previously, the pre-registration process was a rumor based on the leaked documents, however, Apple Inc itself has now confirmed about no walk-in sale of the Watch. Why the company is doing it is still unclear, and there is no clue about how long it is going to be there.

There have been reports about Apple Inc to gain huge profits with the Watch sales, however, with the restrictions and reservation processes, company is trying to limit the sales, or maybe they want to sell only those which are requested. Cupertino giant probably isn’t sure about the Watch performance yet.

It would be wrong to say if the company won’t be able to produce the required units as it has already sold millions of iPhone 6 and 6 Plus since launch.

Another report suggests that Apple Inc is also going to launch a Watch 2 with the well rumored and upcoming iPhone 6S and 6S Plus.

If this Watch is just to analyze the market and to test the performance, we won’t suggest you to be the lab rat.

    “Why the company is doing it is still unclear…”

    No it isn’t. This is a wearable device. The customer will want to try it on.

    You can try a iMac that’s bolted to the table. But that won’t wash with the Apple watch.

    So do you know a company anywhere that just leaves large quantities of $350 watches loose on a table in a busy crowded store, for the customers to try on?

    Let alone $1000, $10,000 or $17,000 ones?

    So you’ve seen the queues when Apple releases a new product. That’s just not going to work trying watches on, without an appointment system.

    Ah. The real reason for the article. FUDS.

    “Another report suggests that Apple Inc is also going to launch a Watch 2 with the well rumored and upcoming iPhone 6S and 6S Plus. If this Watch is just to analyze the market and to test the performance, we won’t suggest you to be the lab rat.”

    I wonder who paid for this.

    The reservations are available on a first come, first served basis.

    “Apparently, the company is trying to maintain the demand to supply ratio under the control.”

    Clearly the company is trying to minimise the time that the customer needs to spend queuing.
