Apple watch is arriving in April
Expectations are very high. When Apple Watch was announced in September, Apple said that it would be arriving in early 2015. But then there was a slight delay due to low components and supply-chain bottlenecks. KGI Research analyst Ming-Chi Kuo forecasted that Apple will ship 2.8 million units in the first calendar quarter of 2015.
Most of the details about the Apple Watch are already known, except for the battery life and cost. The Apple Watch battery life is rumored to have 19 hours of mixed use or 2.5 hours of active use. The cost is $349 for the lower-end version of the Apple Watch, but the prices of the higher end versions are unknown.
