Apple Watch Price: 5 Things You Need to Know

The Apple Watch price is finally something you can start planning for after the Spring Forward Apple Watch event. Apple now lists all the Apple Watch prices online, Apple Watch band prices and other important details that buyers need to know.

The Apple Watch Sport starts at $349 and goes all the way up to $17,000 for the Apple Watch Edition. For most users the Apple Watch is a mid-line option that offers a higher end option without reaching into the expensive level of the Apple Watch Edition.

No one is calling the Apple Watch cheap, but it is less expensive than an iPhone. There are no carriers involved to offer subsidized contract prices and it will likely be a long time before you see any Apple Watch deals, so don’t plan on paying less than the advertised prices.

Answer Calls on the Apple Watch

You can answer a call on your Apple Watch using it as a small Bluetooth speaker phone. You only want to use this for shorter calls because the audio quality isn't as good as when you are talking on speakerphone on your iPhone. 

The Apple Watch only allows you to answer your calls on Speakerphone, so you won't want to use this all the time. It is very handy when you are working on a project or busy with your hands. Definitely be conscious of where you are taking calls. If you wouldn't talk on speakerphone, you shouldn't talk on your Apple Watch.

You cannot answer a FaceTime or FaceTime Audio call on the Apple Watch. You can choose to answer and transfer a call to the iPhone.
