I love the guys over at The Loop, and Dave Mark has set up a bet with longtime writer/blogger Kirk McElhearn concerning the pricing of the Apple Watch Edition. That's the version of the Watch that has a gold case. At this point, Kirk's guess is that since "this is not a luxury watch; this is a smartwatch with a gold case" the price for the base model Apple Watch Edition will be $1,999. Dave Mark, on the other hand, uses the price/cost ratio of the iPhone 6 (the ratio of the price of the device to how much it costs to manufacture) and gets a range of $3,400 to $6,800.
Well, we'll let those guys fight it out on Monday, when either Kirk will send Dave a large packet of digestive biscuits from the UK or Dave coughs up the money to send Kirk a jar of Marshmallow Fluff. I'm more interested to see what Apple World Today readers think will be the price tag for the base model Apple Watch Edition.
Me? I agree with Kirk - $1,999 for the cheapest Apple Watch Edition.
