Apple Watch Pricing Rumors

A new post (via AppleInsider) from an apparently reliable French site (reliable based on previous iPhone 6 and 6 Plus rumors), outs some information on Apple Watch's supposed pricing. The surprising part of the report for me is not that the Edition Watch might only(!) cost $5,000, instead of $10,000 as previously predicted, but that the Steel version might start at only $500, making it only $150 more than the Steel version. Either way it is clear that Apple's profit margins are going to get a healthy boost with the Apple Watch

Citing an unnamed source, French website iGen reports Apple is looking to field the Apple Watch at a proposed retail cost of $500 for versions with stainless steel cases and between $4,000 and $5,000 for Apple Watch Edition models. This leaves the Apple Watch Sport version as Apple’s lowest-priced option, which the company said would come in at $350.
