Walmart is now selling the Apple Watch Sport online (UPDATE)


Apple originally thought that the Apple Watch was more than just a smart device, considering it to be a fashionable piece of jewelry that would be available at the finest jewelry stores. But tepid sales might have changed Apple's mind. The timepiece has been available in Target stores, and starting today it can be purchased from Walmart's online store. Walmart's website apparently has the ability to move smart devices. The other day, the BlackBerry Priv was added to the discount retailer's online offerings, and the Android flavored slider has quickly sold out.

Walmart is offering the Apple Watch Sport model in both 38mm and 42mm variations. Walmart customers will get to choose between a silver case with a white band, or a space gray case with a black band. Accessories are also being offered such as sport bands, and the magnetic charging cable for the watch. Those purchasing the Apple Watch from the Walmart site can choose to have it shipped to their home, or the smartwatch can be picked up from a local Walmart store.

Just as with the Priv, don't expect a discount price on the Apple Watch just because you're buying it from the discount retailer. The 38mm version of the watch will cost you $349, while the 42mm version is priced at $399. That is the exact same pricing that you will find for the pair on Apple's online store.
