Cost version of smart hours Apple Watch Edition housing coated with 18 carat gold will be 4999 dollars in the United States. This is with reference to its own sources told blogger John Gruber.


Apple introduced its first wearable device – Apple Watch – together with the iPhone 6 and iPhone 6 Plus . The gadget is available in three basic models – sports model Apple Watch Sport, the main modification Apple Watch with sapphire crystal screen and with a steel hull, as well as Apple Watch Edition gold-plated body, as well as a sapphire crystal.
