Apple Watch set for March launch, says analyst

The Apple Watch will land in shops in March, according to renowned industry analyst Ming Chi Kuo, marking a six-month gap from its launch to retail availability.

Kuo’s latest report tallies with previous gossip that suggested the device would be on shelves in little more than a month.

While Kuo doesn’t give a specific date for the Apple Watch’s release, he does say that the Cupertino company should reveal more device specs ahead of its arrival. That includes details on battery life and specific pricing for each model.

Last week it emerged that Apple is targeting a daily battery life of around 19 hours, covering active and passive use.

That ties in with its announcement in late 2014 that the smartwatch would need charging nightly.

At the start of January, anonymous insiders said that Apple was planning on giving watch training to senior retail staff in the US in early February, before an early March launch date.

Prices are set to start at $350 in the States, with UK pricing still to be confirmed. The stainless steel edition is said to cost around $500.
