During their March 2016 Keynote special event, Apple announced a new iPhone, a new iPad and a generous price cut for the “best selling smartwatch in the world” — the Apple Watch. The Watch now more affordable than ever and comes with a whole bunch of new straps for you to customize the look and feel of your timepiece.
In what we suspect is perparation for the launch of the new Apple Watch 2, Apple has slashed RM300 off the top of their current Apple Watch Sport bringing it to an all-time low starting price of RM1,299. This means it’s more affordable to get an entry-level Apple Watch Sport than it is to purchase many of the other smartwatches running Android Wear or even Samsung’s Tizen.
However, this price cut looks like it is only applicable for the Sport edition of the Apple Watch as the prices for the other variants remain the same.
