The Apple Watch is only a few more months away from shipping, Apple CEO Tim Cook revealed earlier this week. It was the first time Apple confirmed a specific timeline other than a vague estimate of early 2015. But the general starting price of $349 hasn't changed. Release date and price point aside, fashion insiders do seem to be in agreement that this smartwatch will offer the prettiest options at the time of its launch, The Cut reports. That's not to say folks will readily eschew their Rolex timepieces for the Apple Watch (as specifically stated by designer Todd Snyder). But come April, this new Apple product is sure to change the connected landscape. To see all the different styles, browse them here.
