The Apple Watch goes on pre-order on April 10 for first few countries, and in the usual Apple style the actual ‘on sale' date lands two weeks later on April 24. This is the standard delay Apple puts into its mobile devices.
But India did not feature in the list of first countries that will have Apple Watch. According to gizmodo.com, the prospective sale of the Apple Watch in India might be a result of the country's emergence as an important market for many brands.
The Apple Watch incorporates fitness tracking and health-oriented capabilities as well as integration with iOS and other Apple products and services.

Analysts also put the cost of the base model of Apple Watch as being over Rs 30,000. It is a bit on the costlier side but brand loyalists in India will not mind paying that premium to get their hands on the device.
Connecting to the iPhone, the Apple Watch is designed as a wrist device for messaging and calls and for a variety of health tracking applications. "With the built in speaker and microphone you can receive calls on your watch. I have been wanting to do this since I was five years old," Cook had said.
The watch is also integrated with Apple Pay's mobile wallet, and can be used to view pictures and monitor news, and also connect to social media. The watch can use other apps ranging from Uber ride-sharing to music to home automation.
