At a place where brands like Samsung and LG rule, Apple has shown its worth by getting a string acceptance for its wearable, Apple Watch. Apple Watch, after being launched in one of the most competitive markets of the world, South Korea, received great response from the customers. This posed a great challenge in front of the home-grown brands including LG and Samsung.
Even the concerns for an MERS outbreak and onset of rains could not stop eager Apple Watch fans form queues outside the retail stores selling the wearable device.
A 40-year old man, who had camped outside the shop and was the first man in the queue said that he was very happy to buy the smartwatch. He purchased the watch for 1,239,000 won (US$ 1117.)
The Cupertino-giant has launched three models of its smartwatch in the country, starting from 679,000 won to 1,359,000 won. However, the Apple Watch Sport is priced between 439,000 won and 499,000 won, whereas the luxury edition of Apple Watch can be purchased between 13,000,000 and 22,000,000 won.
Apple Watch has so far been launched in six nations in the second phase (of launch) apart from the first launch in nine nations. Apple has reportedly sold about 2.8 million smartwatches since June.
