It wasn’t long ago that T-Mobile did away with contracts and moved to offering smartphones for equal monthly payments. No early termination fee – if you wanted to leave the carrier, you just paid off your phone and went.
Now, in what seems to be a first-of-its-kind offering, the company is making Apple Watch available for the same deal. Starting this Friday – which is also the launch day for Apple’s new iPhone 6s and iPhone 6s Plus – T-Mobile will let customers pick up an Apple Watch Sport for zero money down. Zero-interest payments are spread out over two years.
Unlike buying a smartwatch from Apple’s retail stores, you won’t be able to come in, try on the Watch, and pick out any band you want – instead, there’s a limited selection of Watch bands available – the most popular choices are packaged in, however, and you’ll still be able to buy additional bands directly from Apple.
The available models include:
- Apple Watch Sport – Silver Aluminum with White Sport Band (38mm & 42mm)
- Apple Watch Sport – Space Grey with Black Sport Band (38mm & 42mm)
- Apple Watch Sport – Rose Gold with Lavender Sport Band (38mm only)
- Apple Watch Sport – Rose Gold with Stone Sport Band (42mm only)
- Apple Watch Sport – Gold Aluminum with Antique White Sport Band (38mm)
- Apple Watch Sport – Gold Aluminum with Midnight Blue Sport Band (42mm)
T-Mobile is limiting the financing option to in-store purchases made at one of the company’s 203 participating locations. You can find a full list here.
Buyers who pick up a 38mm model can expect to pay just $14.54 a month for two years, and an additional four cents the final month. If you want a 42mm Apple Watch Sport, you’ll need to shell out $16.62 each month, with the final month costing an additional twelve cents.
If you’re content to pay full price – or just not lucky enough to live near one of the limited cities – you’ll be able to snag one of the Sport packages on T-Mobile’s website (a nice option if you’d prefer to pick up a phone at the same time). They’ll also be offering the stainless steel Apple Watch with a White Sport Band, and Spack Black stainless steel model with Black Sport Band, in both sizes, on their website.
