Apple will apparently focus on the health and fitness, communication, and timekeeping aspects of the Watch when selling to customers. They will also encourage perspective Watch buyers to upgrade their iPhone, or switch from another platform. Apple apparently has confidence that a lot of people want an Apple Watch, and will use a soft sell, according to 9to5Mac:
Apple will evidently use some of these question to determine which model, Watch, Sport, or Edition, that is most suited to a customer. Questions are said to include whether or not a customer needs a more casual or formal watch, or what type of band they prefer.
Bands are apparently an important part of how Apple will sell the Watch. At a town hall for retail employees apparently held last week SVP of Retail Angela Ahrendts is said to have stressed the importance of accessories, to the Apple Watch. She also reportedly detailed upcoming changes to the Apple Retail Stores.
Apple's upcoming "Spring Forward" event on March 9 is expected to be all about the Apple Watch. It's likely that we'll get a better look at some of their retail plans for the device then, possibly including changes coming to the stores.
We'll be on hand at the Yerba Buena Center during the event with the latest on the Apple Watch.
