Apple Watch straps to be available individually at launch

Early Apple Watch adopters will be able to customise their wearables from the off, with a selection of additional straps coming on day one, latest reports have suggested.

While it has previously been suggested that only fully assembled Apple Watch units will be available at launch, it now appears that a range of accessories and add-ons will also be offered.

Apple’s retail outlets will be stocked on day one with individual straps so customers can easily mix and match the looks of their Watches,” unnamed insiders reportedly told 9to5Mac.

With the Apple Watch set to be offered in two sizes – 38mm and 42mm – it has been suggested additional straps will be offered in a selection of colours for both forms.

Adding further customisation options to the mix, it is believed this selection of straps will include a number of buckle options, from metal clasps to leather loops.

While Apple has confirmed the entry-level Apple Watch Sport offering will be available from $349 (£227), further pricing details have yet to be confirmed.

It has been suggested, however, that the 18-karat gold Apple Watch Edition will set wannabe owners back a whopping $5,000 (£3,247).
