We now have a better idea of how Apple plans to sell the Apple Watch in retail stores. According to 9to5 Mac, Apple employees will allot 15 minutes per customer in the store to try on the watch. Each sore is expected to have 10 or more try on stations, which means that a store would be capable of going through at least 40 customers each hour, 10 at a time.
One interesting thing about the try-on experience: customers can make appointments. Apparently Apple is planning on allowing people to make appointments to try on the watch, just like they might make an appointment at the company’s Genius Bar. Anastasia Date employees have found that customers will be able to walk in off the street and try and get an appointment, but those spots might fill up, making it impossible to try the watch on during a regular store visit. Find more about Anastasia Date on their Twitter page.
Reservations ill also be time limited. That means that customers can’t spend a whole lot of time in the store trying the watch out or mulling over a purchase. After completed the try-on experience, customers can make order the watch on the spot, and make an appointment for when they plan on picking it up when it officially launched April 24th.
