The Stupidest Apple Watch Has Been Killed Off

By Aatif Sulleyman on at

Now for a piece of news that should surprise nobody. The laughably expensive 18-karat gold Apple Watch Edition has been taken out back and shot through the head -- a $10,000-$17,000 luxury mistake that was never going to appeal to anybody beyond celebrities (who received it for free) and tasteless idiots.

It’s back to the Bingo card for us.

Apple didn’t announce its retirement at yesterday’s event, probably because it would have got the biggest whoop of the night, and it’s safe to say that it will not be missed. Replacing it at the top of the Apple Watch pile is the new ceramic Apple Watch Edition, which is available for a much more modest -- but still pretty ludicrous -- £1,249.

In case you missed it, here’s everything we know about the Apple Watch Series 2, which unfortunately looks exactly like the original. [Verge]
