Report says that you will be able to engrave a personal message on the Apple Watch


If you have been thinking ahead past April about giving the Apple Watch as a birthday, anniversary or holiday gift, here is some good news. A report out of France says that Apple will allow the timepiece to be engraved with a personal message. The anonymous source cited in the report allegedly works inside Apple, but wasn't sure if this would be offered at launch or a little bit down the road. 

Where would the engraving go? Traditionally, a watch is engraved on the back plate. But with the Apple Watch, the heart-rate sensor is on the back which doesn't leave much room for a decent heart-felt message. Since the tech titan sees its smartwatch as a piece of jewelry as much as a technological device, giving gift givers a chance to write some pithy prose might be important to Apple.

Currently, Apple allows engravings on the Apple iPod and Apple iPad. We should find out more of what Apple has in mind for its watch during the "Spring Ahead" event, aptly named after that old reminder about Daylight Savings Time (Spring Ahead, Fall Back) which returns in the U.S. this coming Sunday. Besides more information about engraving, we should find out pricing for the mid-range and top-of-the-line models, information about battery life and how resistant the watch is to water. And most importantly, we should hear about a specific launch date for the Apple Watch.
