Apple now starting Watch training for retail employees

Management at Apple Stores have begun training their employees in retail about the specifics of the Apple Watch and how to sell it customers, ahead of its launch in April. This comes via 9to5mac, who has solid sources in the retail sector, who say the training did not divulge any new details about the Watch.

The training reportedly is basic in content, revealing very few new details about the upcoming smartwatch product. In line with earlier rumors, the initial training is expected to take place between February 9 and 16. As the early phases of training commences, select employees also will receive additional hands-on training at Apple facilities in either Cupertino, California or Austin, Texas.

After months of speculation, Apple announced its Watch wearable at a September 2014 press event that also saw the introduction of the iPhone 6 and 6 Plus. Since its unveiling, Apple continues to showcase the Watch but has revealed few additional details about the smartwatch. What is known about the device confirms it will integrate closely with an iPhone and will offer both productivity and health and fitness features. The Watch also includes several technological innovations including a digital crown for scrolling and zooming as well as a force-sensing, flexible retina display.

The training on Friday took place for employees in multiple countries, including the US and the UK. 9to5mac had previously reported Apple plans to fly out select employees for more hands-on and advanced training over the next couple of weeks.
