Apple Watch will be made available in April. That was the loud message from Apple's Tim Cook on Tuesday, as he clarified that the much-awaited product from the Cupertino-based giant will hit the street in April 2015.
Earlier, Apple had said that the watch would be available in "early 2015". The tech from Cupertino unveiled its most ambitious product, Apple Watch, in September last year.
Development for Apple Watch is right on schedule and we expect to begin shipping in April," said Cook. "Developers are hard at work on apps, notifications and information summaries that we call Glances, all designed specifically for the Watch's user interface. The creativity and software innovation going on around Apple Watch is incredibly exciting and we can't wait for our customers to experience them when Apple Watch becomes available."
In the meanwhile, Barclays analyst Ben Reitzes used the conference call to ask whether the watch is arriving later than Apple predicted. But Cook said the first four months of the year qualify as "early 2015.
"What we had been saying was early 2015, and we sort of look at the year and think of early as the first four months, mid is the next four months and late is the final four months. And so to us it's sort of within the range and it's basically when we thought. We're going to - but most importantly we're going to be thrilled to start shipping it, because we got a lot of customers that are wanting to get one."
The Apple CEO further said he is using Apple Watch every day and can't live without it.
"So I see that we're making great progress on the development of it. The number of developers that are writing apps more for it are impressive and we're seeing some incredible innovation coming out there."
