Best Buy also said they will sell 16 variants of Apple Watches each being either Sport or Watch models. The company said they won’t be selling the Edition.
They also stated they’ll be selling “nearly 50 different accessories” for the Watch including watch bands, screen protectors, charging cables, and stands. The type of band Best Buy will be selling hasn’t been revealed, leaving the question whether they’ll sell Apple-made Watch bands or sell 3rd party manufacturers bands.
“The Apple Watch is an important addition to an emerging product category, and we know our customers want it,” said Jason Bonfig, senior category officer at Best Buy. “We are excited to bring Apple Watch to more consumers, especially with the holidays coming up.”
Best Buy said they’ll be updating their website within the next few days with more information regarding the Apple Watch and where it will become available for purchase on August 7.
