Personal Pick Up Program For Apple Watch Buyers
Are you going to own an Apple product, you may have made use of the company's Personal Pickup program that allows you to purchase a device online and collect it at a desired retail store location. According to 9to5Mac sources, a new, yet unannounced program specially tailored for the Apple Watch, will offer you a similar deal.
In an effort to provide its customers with a better shopping experience when talking Apple's new wearable (buying a watch is different than buying a phone, after all), the company will be putting a new system in place dubbed Reserve and Pickup. The new service will allow prospective Apple Watch buyers to reserve a given case/band combo (of which there are many) for a given Apple Store retail location, and try it out in person before parting with any cash.
Apple is also telling its employees to encourage customers to use the 'favorite' feature available at Apple's online store in order to indicate their preferred combination of Apple Watch model (e.g. Sport, Edition) and band/case combination.
The Apple Watch will enter an official pre-order stage on the 10th of April and start shipping two weeks later, on April 24th, and cost anywhere between $349 and $17,000.
