Apple on Friday began Apple Watch training for its retail store employees. Training has reportedly begun in stores the United States and United Kingdom.
Mark Gurman of 9to5Mac says while the training is said to not divulge many new details, it does represent Apple’s first move on the retail employee level to prepare for the new wearable.
As we reported last week, Apple will reportedly be following a few best-practices from traditional jewelry stores when safe-guarding its gold “Edition” Apple Watch models from theft. Apple is planning on several safeguards for their high-end watch models, including a custom safe that will be fitted with Apple Watch MagSafe chargers to keep the demo units charged and ready to go.
Apple CEO Tim Cook has said the Apple Watch will debut by April. While we know pricing for the aluminum and glass Apple Watch will start at $349, no official pricing has been announced for the more expensive stainless steel and gold variants.
