The Apple Watch could be debuting in Austria, Denmark, India and other countries later this month.
A rumor from Austrian website MacMania claims that the Apple Watch will be available in Austria starting September 15th, citing information it received from a reputable source working for an undisclosed large electronics chain in the country. As yet, Apple does not have an official retail presence in Austria.
Danske Bank, the largest bank in Denmark, also recently issued a press release stating that its MobilePay service will support the Apple Watch when the device launches in Denmark next month, but the bank has since backtracked and now cites “rumors” about a September launch.
The bank itself has a large presence within the Nordic region of Europe, including Denmark, Finland and Norway, three countries where the Apple Watch is slated to launch before the end of the year per Apple’s website. The bank also operates in Sweden, where the Apple Watch launched in July.
A rumor from an Indian website has the Apple Watch debuting in India this month. The device is said to start at 24,999 rupees for the entry-level Sport model.
The full list of countries where the Apple Watch will be “available in 2015” includes Austria, Belgium, Brazil, Denmark, Finland, India, Malaysia, Norway, Saudi Arabia and the United Arab Emirates. Apple also has an Apple Watch preview website live in Latin America, but no launch date has provided.
Either way, the Apple Watch will be appearing on more retail shelves in the coming months.
Stay tuned for additional details as they become available.
