Apple is going to charge more for the larger Apple Watch

Apple Watch Price Range

Here’s an interesting question for you… is Apple going to charge more for the larger 42mm Apple Watch? In the world of traditional watches, different sizes absolutely cost different prices. This is what I think.

Apple has announced the Apple Watch pricing will start at only $349. However, that is for the Apple Watch Sport model. Going further, it’s entirely possible there will be multiple storage capacity options, though I wouldn’t necessarily bet on that. I think if Apple decides to sell the 38mm and 42mm watches at different prices it could look something like this:

  • Apple Watch Sport 38mm 8GB with one fluoroelastomer band: $349
  • Apple Watch Sport 42mm 8GB with one fluoroelastomer band: $449
  • Apple Watch stainless 38mm 16GB with no band: $549
  • Apple Watch stainless 42mm 16GB with no band: $649
  • Apple Watch Edition gold 38mm 32GB with no band: $2299
  • Apple Watch Edition gold 42mm 32GB with no band: $2499

It’s not firm, but I think it’s an interesting way for Apple to split up how it’s going to price the company’s upcoming watch. If Apple is truly starting to train employees on the Apple Watch starting next month, we should be seeing an Apple Watch special event in the next couple weeks. Let’s see what happens.
