Apple employees will be able to pick up an Apple Watch Sport or stainless steel model for 50% off.

In a memo to employees, Apple CEO Tim Cook has said that over 1,000 Apple Watch apps were submitted last week after Apple began taking submissions from all developers. He also announced that Apple employees would be able to get either the Apple Watch or Apple Watch Sport for 50% off, according to 9to5Mac:

I know that many of you have been looking forward to choosing an Apple Watch for yourselves, and we want to make it easy for you. Starting Friday, in countries where the watch is available for pre-order, a special Employee Purchase Plan will offer a 50% discount on any Apple Watch or Apple Watch Sport for your personal use.

This discount brings the starting price of the Apple Watch Sport to about $175 for the 38mm, and $200 for the 42mm model. Employees will be able to take advantage of this discount for 90 days. The discount will start when pre-orders for the Apple Watch go live on April 10 at 12:01 a.m. PDT.
