A report from French website iGen (via Apple Insider) says mid-tier stainless steel Apple (AAPL) Watch is rumored to cost $500, while Apple Watch “Edition” models, which are crafted from 18-karat gold and come with a variety of luxurious strap options will be priced between $4,000 and $5,000, a number much higher than previous estimates.
Prior to the Apple Watch announcement in September, noted analyst Ming-Chi Kuo accurately predicted that “the iWatch casing and band will come in various materials, and that the most expensive model of the iWatch line will carry a price tag of several thousand US dollars.”
The publication says Cupertino is shooting for a iWatch launch on Valentine’s Day, though a recent video message from Apple retail chief Angela Ahrendts, indicated a Spring 2015 launch.
