Sadly for UK residents, each model (Apple Sport, Apple Watch and Apple Watch Edition) is to be sold at the most expensive price in comparison to other countries across the world. A 38mm Apple Watch is going to set Britons back a whopping £479, which is noticeably higher than the second most expensive country, China’s price of £446 for the same model.

With the U.S dollar continuing to drop in value, it’s no surprise that the United States is the cheapest country to purchase the latest invention from Apple. The difference in price between the U.S and the UK for the 38mm Apple Watch model is a considerable £113, which may encourage Brit’s to purchase the product stateside if possible.

Taking shipping costs, international tariffs and duty fees into account, you’re going to have to pay a pretty penny to purchase the Apple watch from U.S, however, you’re still going to be saving money on the cost you would have to pay if you bought the product in the UK.

There is a reason why consumers are prepared to blow a fortune on one of these new fashion accessories, and that’s because of the jaw dropping interactive features it comes equipped with:

 Keeping yourself entertained

Just like the Apple IPhone and IPad, the Apple Watch is set to follow suit in the way that it allows it’s users to access a huge number of applications via touch screen. This means that users will have the opportunity to read the latest news, listen to music and keep themselves up-to-date with their numerous social networks.

Connectivity like you’ve never seen it before

When you use the Apple Watch, there is no need to reach for your phone as it has the ability to connect to the IPhone 5, or any version above that. This means that any texts, calls or emails you receive will go straight to your Apple Watch and your IPhone. As well as having all the standard IPhone features, the Apple Watch can connect to the world’s most convenient app, Siri, making use of the gadget even more effortless.

Which one’s right for you? There are three versions of the watch to be released later this month, the Apple Watch, the Apple Watch Sport and the Apple Watch Edition. Each version has a difference in style, functionality and price and all of these models are available with either a 38mm or 42mm face.

Impressed? All three versions are set to hit the stores on the 24th of April in nine countries across the world: UK, U.S, Canada, Japan, China, Hong Kong, Australia, France and Germany.
