9 éve, 2014 szeptember 9-én jelentette be az Apple a sokak által várva várt Apple Watch-ot. A bejelentés ugyan megtörtént 2014 szeptember 9-én, de a vásárlóknak 2015 április 24-ig kellett várniuk arra, hogy a termék megvásárolható legyen:
Even though it was now official, even though the Apple Watch was now announced in all its detail, still we had to wait. Between that announcement and the Watch actually shipping to customers on April 24, 2015, there were 227 days. That's 56 days or two months more than the gap between the iPhone's announcement and its going on sale back in 2007.
There was longer to wait if you wanted to try one in an Apple Store, too. That April 24 date was for online sales, and the Watches appeared in the retail stores in June.
