Here's how much every Apple Watch model is going to cost

Hold on to your wallets, people, for the Apple Watch could cost you a lot if you really want to get fancy with it.

Today Apple formally unveiled pricing for the Apple Watch, with prices starting at a relatively palatable $349 for the Apple Watch Sport. But if you were planning on getting a fancier Apple Watch or Apple Watch Edition, you could be paying quite a bit. The gold Edition model, for example, can run all the way up to $17,000.

So let's break it down. Not every band is available for every watch model (the link bracelet is only an option for the stainless steel Apple Watch, for example, and the modern leather buckle can only be had on the 38mm versions), so keep that in mind.

And, of course, before you plop down a few hundred — or thousand — dollars on a new Apple Watch, you'll probably want to try one out first. Apple will be offering pre-orders and in-store previews of the watches starting April 10, with the watch going on sale on April 24.

In the meantime, here's what you're looking at for pricing of each combination of watch body and band:

Apple Watch Sport 38mm 42mm

Here's how much every Apple Watch model is going to cost

They are crazy. No matter what way I look at this I just can't justify the price model. And I set price models for a living.

Right! The difference between the entry level and the point where you can get a non-sport band is $300, or about 85% of the base $350. I don't see how this can be justified, let alone charging $3,000 just for a different band for the Edition. I've never had a pricing model piss me off before.

It's justified because their rabid fans will pay it. Or will they? My money is on "They will".

I'd just like to point out that my car cost just 6k.

It may not be made of gold, but it certainly lasts longer than 18hrs.

Exactly - I think these prices are insane, and I will still buy one.
I might not run (I would hurt myself), but I will drive over.

Ouch. I bought android wear for £170 and think I payed too much but these prices are bonkers. Wonder if we will see price drops or offers of free watches with iPhone purchases.
