Apple Watch, Now Available to Preorder, is Extremely Expensive in Canada

Apple Watch is now available for preview and pre-order in Canada. Deliveries begin Friday, April 24.

“We are excited to welcome customers tomorrow and introduce them to Apple Watch, our most personal device yet,” said Angela Ahrendts, Apple’s senior vice president of Retail and Online Stores.

Apple predicts some supply constraints.

“Based on the tremendous interest from people visiting our stores, as well as the number of customers who have gone to the Apple Online Store to mark their favourite Apple Watch ahead of availability, we expect that strong customer demand will exceed our supply at launch,” Ahrendts noted.

As a result, preorders will be accepted online only initially.

“To provide the best experience and selection to as many customers as we can, we will be taking orders for Apple Watch exclusively online during the initial launch period,” Ahrendts said.

Apple Watch is available in three collections: Apple Watch Sport, priced at $449 and $519; Apple Watch, available from $699 to $1,459; and Apple Watch Edition, crafted from custom rose or yellow 18-karat gold alloys, with prices starting at $13,000.
