  • Shara Tibken 3/9/2015 6:23:40 PM
    The entry device, the aluminum and glass Apple Watch Sport with plastic band, starts at $349. Apple hasn’t yet revealed pricing for its mid-range and high-end watches, but experts believe the 18-karat-gold Apple Watch Edition could climb to price levels associated with fine jewelry, such as $5,000 or above.
