No matter what brand you bring home, price always plays a crucial role in your buying decision. The case in point is Apple watch that was launched in San Francisco a day before. After much fan-fare, Tim Cook officially unveiled some of the finest products consumers can get hold of. Cook believes that any brand can stand strong on the three pillars of People, Strategy and Execution; based on this brand philosophy, Apple watch is all set to take your lifestyle to the next level. Cook believes that if you get these three things right, the world is a great place.

However, Apple’s price policy has always surprised many Indian consumers; but friends, before you buy any Apple product, don’t fall prey to currency conversion. Let me explain this in simple terms. For Indian consumers, it is force of habit that they convert US dollars into Indian rupee while they shop any American products. But when you are shopping Apple products – be it iPhone, iPad or even Apple watch – always keep in mind that Apple has never used currency converter. What I mean to say is that if Apple has a price tag of $349 for a basic watch (38mm silver aluminium case with white sport band), consumers in India can’t expect that product at Rs. 21,892 ($1 = Rs62: Courtesy: Yahoo! Currency converter.)

Apple Watch Price in IndiaHistorical data says that Apple has always launched its products in India with a price tag that shows 10-12k more than what you get after converting price into Indian rupee. So, for that basic Apple watch, that is available in US at $349, you might have to pay Rs. 32000, and not Rs. 21892. However, industry insiders claim that price of Apple watch in India will always be a conundrum for the brand as Indian consumer market has always remained volatile. The brand has not even fixed the release date of Apple watch in India; hence, price is a far cry for both – the brand and consumers. Until Apple watch is not released in India, keep guessing and keep visiting this blog to get more updates on Apple products!
