The Gold Apple Watch is now almost $10,000 cheaper and you can buy it today.
There are two new gold Apple Watch options that are $9.651 cheaper than the gold Apple Watch Edition that Apple started selling earlier this year.
Apple announced the new gold Apple Watch Sport in rose gold and yellow gold with a starting price of $349 and $399 depending on the size you choose.
Unlike the Apple Watch Edition models that range form $10,000 to $17,000 and are made of real gold, the new gold Apple Watch Sport models are made of the same aluminum as the current Apple Watch Sport, but with a new gold and rose gold color.
The gold Apple Watch Sport release date is today, September 9th at Apple and we expect that it will soon arrive at Best Buy. Best Buy recently started selling the Apple Watch in all stores.
Apple also announced a collection of new Apple Watch bands including new Hermes leather Apple Watch bands, a fall collection of Sport bands in a variety of colors and updates to other Apple Watch bands. The Hermes Apple Watch bands release date is October, but it’s not clear if the Sport bands will arrive sooner.
Users can also buy a new Apple Watch Product(RED) model and a Product (RED) Apple Watch band in the near future as well.
Demand for an affordable gold Apple Watch was high after the initial release, leading to at least one owner spray painting a DIY Apple Watch.
Starting today that is no longer necessary as Apple is selling the gold Apple Watch Sport for $349 for the 38mm model and $399 for the 42mm model.
Apple will soon release WatchOS 2, a major update for the Apple Watch that allows apps to run on the watch and access more information for a better experience and bigger tasks. Apple also confirmed a Facebook Messenger Apple Watch app release in the near future.
Set Your Apple Watch Ahead 5-10 Minutes
If you are always running behind and you are used to setting clocks ahead so that you leave early enough to get there you'll love the Apple Watch.
There is a setting on the Watch that lets you set the Apple Watch time ahead up to 59 minutes fast. Most people will set the watch a few minutes early or 15 minutes early if they are always late.
Alarms and timers should stick to the real-time, but when you look at the time on your Apple Watch you will see the time you want, instead of the real-time.
Here's how to set your Apple Watch ahead so you're always on time.
