The Apple Watch will reportedly be available in other countries, including Germany, when it launches in April, according to 9to5Mac’s Mark Gurman.
Apple CEO Tim Cook shared this information with employees at the company’s flagship store in Berlin, according to Gurman, who says he spoke with an Apple employee in attendance.
Specifically, Cook said the watch won’t be exclusive to the United States in April.
It’s unclear which markets the Apple Watch will be available in, and whether or not it will be released at exactly the same time in multiple markets. As Gurman points out, it’s possible Apple could release the Apple Watch in the US before releasing it to international markets such as Germany later in the month.
This is a somewhat unusual move for Apple to make with a first-generation product. Both the iPhone and iPad were available exclusively in the US before expanding to other markets.
Apple has been showing off its watch at boutiques in Paris and in the Paris edition of Vogue, so it seems like the company is making a push to market the watch overseas as well, as Gurman also noted.
We expect to learn more next week when Apple holds its press event on March 9.
