The Apple Watch will be obtainable at stores of Best Buy Co Inc, the most important U.S. shopper electronics chain, beginning Aug. 7.
The Apple Watch and Apple Watch Sport fashions will be sold at greater than 300 Best Buy stores in time for the vacation buying season, a spokeswoman for Apple Inc stated.
“Clients love Apple Watch, and we’re thrilled to start providing it at Best Buy,” she stated in an e mail.
Best Buy is the primary retailer to promote the watch outdoors of the Apple retail retailer.
“The Apple Watch is a vital addition to an rising product class, and we all know our clients need it,” Jason Bonfig, senior class officer, stated on the Best Buy web site.
The corporate stated the product will even be obtainable on its on-line retailer BestBuy.com.
The Wall Road Journal first reported that the Apple watch was coming to Best Buy.
Apple Chief Monetary Officer Luca Maestri advised Reuters earlier this month that gross sales of the Apple Watch had beat the corporate’s expectations. He stated within the 9 weeks since its launch in late April, the system had sold higher than both iPhones or iPads over an analogous interval after their launch.
