What to expect from Apple’s March 9 event

With Apple sending out invites for its time-themed ‘Spring Forward’ event on March 9 in San Francisco, it’s a certainty that the company will fill in the missing details on its new Watch line, which it unveiled back in September.

We know the Watch will start shipping in April and will start at $349 in the US for the aluminum-and-glass Apple Watch Sport, with prices elsewhere yet to be announced (a rough conversion would be £220 or AU$380). However, we don’t know what higher-end tiers of the watch will cost, or what accessories will be priced at. The midlevel stainless-steel Apple Watch — with its sapphire crystal-covered display — is bound to cost significantly more, while the 18-karat-gold Apple Watch Edition could climb to price levels associated with fine jewelry.
