French website latest to weigh in

One example is French site iGen, which has a good record of releasing accurate details of unreleased Apple products, including the iPhone 6. The site claims it has received trustworthy information on prices of the stainless steel and gold versions of the Apple Watch.

According to the site the starting price for the stainless steel version will be $500, and those who want to splash out on a gold model will have to find between $4,000 and $5,000.

The site also claimed that the company is aiming for a Valentine’s Day launch, which fits with existing rumors. In contrast, a note allegedly written by Angela Ahrendts to Apple retail store employees says the company will release the Watch next spring.

iGen provides more information on the French market, claiming that local retailers and accessory manufacturers are preparing for a mid-February launch, but details are thin on the ground.

Just how many of the higher-end models will be sold is obviously still an unknown quality, but those with deep pockets will be able to mark themselves out from the rest of the wearables crowd.
