Apple Stores making changes to accommodate Apple Watch
We've said all along that Apple considers the Apple Watch to be as much a piece of fashionable jewelry as it is a tech device. After all, the company had the timepiece on display during the Autumn Fashion Week in Paris. And a fashion model was used to promote the wearable on the cover of Vogue China.

A report published on Sunday cites sources for the information that Apple will install large safes, like the kind used by jewelry stores, in their retail locations. The safes will house the more expensive gold versions of the Apple Watch including sellable inventory and demo units. They also will be specially outfitted with Apple's MagSafe chargers so that the watches will all be recharged and ready to go for the next business day.

Apple Stores are also going to be reorganized as Apple makes changes to more easily display the Apple Watch to prospective buyers. The more expensive models are expected to be sold in a different manner than the lower end watches, which start at $349. The more expensive Apple Watch models will be priced in the thousands of dollars which makes a safe necessary. The device is expected to launch some time in April.

In addition, starting tomorrow you will see Apple Store employees wearing new attire. The new blue shirts will be available to employees with a crew neck or a polo-type collar and will feature a smaller Apple logo.
