Apple Watch hits seven new markets
The notorious Apple Watch is quite a hit, despite its few major drawbacks - especially the abysmal battery life when compared to its competitors. Shortly after becoming available for in-store purchase at Apple Retail locations (with reservation), the smartwatch now expands its reach to seven new markets. Even more, the next step on the road to global availability is also scheduled already.
Today, the list of countries where the Apple Watch is available for purchase has been enriched with the following: Italy, Mexico, Singapore, South Korea, Spain, Switzerland, and Taiwan. The next group to join consists of the following - Netherlands, Sweden, and Thailand. They will receive the smartwatch starting on July 17.
Initial sales of the wearable from Cupertino took off quite slow, being restricted solely to online orders. Obviously, this was caused by bottlenecks in the supply chain and now Apple seems to get things in order by offering the smartwatch both in stores and online, also adding new countries to the list of markets where Apple Watch is available.
