Check out all Apple Watch models' case dimensions with different wrist bands on
The Apple Watch release is here, and the whole project has arguably been four years in the making, sucking a lot of money, human resources, and trial and error undertakings. Envisioned also as a health accessory, the Apple Watch was initially meant to be laden with sensors for logging heart rate, stress levels, and even blood pressure. Out of these, only the heart rate monitoring function stayed, as the rest behaved pretty inconsistently for Apple's standards, especially if there was too much hair on the hand, or dry skin.

Even if Apple managed to finally crack the sensor conundrum, if the Watch was scheduled to measure your blood pressure reliably, and the readings used in apps for health monitoring or advice, it would have to get FDA approval as a medical gadget. Apple's CEO Tim Cook and the team met with FDA officials, but apparently concluded that it's not yet time to release such a device, especially in a brand new and untested in terms of popularity product like the Apple Watch. The gizmo should be released in April, starting at $349, and going north of $4,000 for the gold version. In the meantime, check out all the Apple Watch series and models, with their respective wrist bands in the slideshow below.

$349 usd for the base model. Very, very expensive... $299 would be more appropriate. Greed is strong in them.

Man you're really brainwashed by Apple. You're comparing this with the Gear S? Do you have any idea what the Gear S is capable of doing? Why didn't you compare it to the best designed smartwatches at the moment? Moto 360, Lg G Watch R, and the Zen watch?? They all look better, and are cheaper than this iPod nano crap.

Because apple watch represents similar level to gear 2. Sorry, but gear s is just one step further. It's basically more of a band than a wristwatch. The cheapest version of apple watch has gay colours like yellow, green, etc. So if you don't want to look like a complete moron while wearing formal attire, you need to go 1 step further and get the better version.

What kills me is the title "Check out all Apple Watch models". Its one model, the only difference is the types of materials used and the different bands. But its only ONE model.

The Gear S can function as a stand alone device and phone with out being pair to a phone. so your comparison is a lil off

"and the whole project has arguably been four years in the making" i am not falling for it this time. 4 years to come up with a watch which most features are ripped off from Gear and Android Wear watches?

It always takes more time to modify what you have stolen than inventing new stuff.

Apple loves to make up and believe in the lies they spin. If this watch was 4 years in the making. Then why was the S1 processor (sip) that is inside the Apple Watch, only started manufacturing late last year?

rushing something to the market that is taped together just for the sake of being first doesnt make it original.

Its like an iPod Nano on wrist. Apple designs were always flawless, am not sure how they ended up on this for a watch.

I think Google are working on an Android Wear app for iOS, just a little patience. This Apple watch is honestly hideous. http://appleinsider.com/articles/15/03/04/google-reportedly-planning-to-bring-android-wear-support-to-ios

PhoneArena you are wrong with the price for the highest model. It is a little bit more expensive...To be exact it just costs 18.000€ for the top version. I think the Chinese people won't get this for just their kidney. They need to sell all their organs.
