While initial reports claimed that the launch would get underway in early April, Apple apparently had other plans. Pricing wise, the Apple Watch pricing matrix is a bit more expensive than most Apple observers were anticipating. The Gold model watch, for instance, has a starting pricepoint of $10,000.

Once pre-orders open up in about a month, it’ll be interesting to see if consumers flock to put their orders in or if many will take a “wait and see” approach.
