Hold on to your wallets, people, for the Apple Watch could cost you a lot if you really want to get fancy with it.
Today Apple formally unveiled pricing for the Apple Watch, with prices starting at a relatively palatable $349 for the Apple Watch Sport. But if you were planning on getting a fancier Apple Watch or Apple Watch Edition, you could be paying quite a bit. The gold Edition model, for example, can run all the way up to $17,000.
So let's break it down. Not every band is available for every watch model (the link bracelet is only an option for the stainless steel Apple Watch, for example, and the modern leather buckle can only be had on the 38mm versions), so keep that in mind.
And, of course, before you plop down a few hundred — or thousand — dollars on a new Apple Watch, you'll probably want to try one out first. Apple will be offering pre-orders and in-store previews of the watches starting April 10, with the watch going on sale on April 24.
