Here’s how Apple will let customers try on Apple Watch

9to5mac is out with a report detailing how Apple plans to allow customers to try on the Apple Watch in its retail stores around the globe, when the wearable will be put out on tables starting April 10.

The report states, based off information obtained from an unnamed source familiar with the plans, that Apple will have 10 “try-on stations” within Apple Stores, and that customers that want to try an Apple Watch on will have 15 minutes to do just that. The report also reiterates that customers will not have to have a previously confirmed appointment to get to try on the Watch, but it would obviously make the lines go faster.

Customers are said to be able to walk-in, and won’t be required to have an appointment, however may want to depending on how busy the store is.

Apple employees will be given more training in the next few days on how to sell the Apple Watch. Each Apple Store is being provided with one table with 10 surrounding Apple Watch try-on stations. Stores with more traffic will receive more tables to meet demand.

We saw these tables during Apple’s “Spring Forward” media event last week:

Furthermore, Apple Stores will have four “zones” to help sell the Apple Watch, says 9to5mac:
  1. First zone is for trying on the Apple Watch.
  2. Second zone is for sales, with one line to help customers who know exactly what they want. Another line will help the undecided pick the right band and case.
  3. Third zone is for answering questions about features.
  4. Fourth zone is for selling the Apple Watch Edition, which ranges in price from $10,000 to $17,000, and will be available on a limited basis.
Apple announced it will launch the Apple Watch in Australia, Canada, China, France, Germany, Hong Kong, Japan, United Kingdom, and the US when shipments begin on April 24. Pre-orders and the in-store previews will begin on April 10.

Do you plan on pre-ordering a Watch before you check it out in a Store?
