In a bid to eradicate the huge lines that precede all Apple product launches, the company is trying to push online sales massively. The company has announced that it will only take orders online – a first by Apple. Even people who come to the store, will be helped by the staff to order the product online.

To provide the best experience and selection to as many customers as we can, we will be taking orders for Apple Watch exclusively online during the initial launch period, the Cupertino company said in a statement.

Apple has gone all out to pimp its Apple Watch Edition series and has completely reworked its store to accommodate heavy changes. The Edition buyers are in for a slew of perks from Apple, and you can read all about it here.

Beginning April 24, Apple Watch Edition will also be available at boutiques in major cities including Colette in Paris, Dover Street Market in London and Tokyo, Maxfield in Los Angeles and The Corner in Berlin, and select Apple Authorized Resellers in China and Japan.

It is recommended that you pre-order using the Apple Store iOS app, as it tends to work faster. The US Apple Store is currently down as the company prepares to open the floodgates for taking the pre-orders.

To all the customers who want to try the watch before making the purchase can book an appointment via the Apple website or app, or even use this cool app to virtually try it!

The Apple Watch will be available in two sizes-38mm and 42mm and come in nearly 38 variants. The Apple Watch 38mm starts at $349 and ranges up to $1,049 depending on band. The 42mm band costs $50 more. The Apple Watch Edition starting price is at $10,000 and will be available only in select retail stores. The Apple Watch Sport, on the other hand, begins at $349 for the 38mm and $399 for the 42mm. Apple also warns that there will be supply constraints, so the pre-orders will only be live till the stock lasts.
