Cast your minds back about 6 months ago, when Apple unveiled the iPhone 6 and iPhone 6 Plus. You may remember at the end of the event they spent around 30 minutes talking about a new device that would be hitting the stores across the World, that of course was the Apple Watch. The only real drawback was that this device was due for launch some 6 months after. A date we have now hit.
For many it has been a long wait, but later today we are expected to see the Watch in all it’s glory, in an event called ‘Spring Forward’ which will be held in San Francisco, at the Yerba Buena Center.
Where to Watch the Apple Event
Below we have listed some places that you can follow the Apple launch event.
Checking The Time
A site called TimeandDate.com have provided an easy time conversion that will allow you to see what time the Apple Launch Event will start in your country/city. It will regonise your location and do the conversion for you. As a heads up, the UK time is set for 5PM this afternoon.
Apple will be providing their very own video stream of the conference, the only catch is that you need an Apple compatible device/browser to be able to use the service.
You will need to be on a device that uses: “Safari 5.1.10 on OS X v10.6.8 or later; Safari on iOS 6.0 or later. Streaming via Apple TV requires second- or third-generation Apple TV with software 6.2 or later.”
If you don’t have a compatible device then you can try the popular streaming site, UStream, who will have a feed of the launch running:
The second best option to a live video feed is to watch live blog commentary which you can do from the comfort of your office chair.
We have scoured the net and brought you some of the best sites that will be reporting from the Yerba Buena Center:
The Apple Watch is set to cost around the £300 mark and should be available for purchase in April, but we can rule out the first week of April as this is Easter.
£8,000 for a Watch?
If you have more cash than sense it has also been suggested that, Apple will be launching a limited edition Watch made with 18-carat yellow gold. The price tag around it’s neck = a cool £8,000.
For that price, you just wouldn’t want to wear it, would you?
