You Can Now Buy The Apple Watch Sport From Walmart Online

13 Dec 2015 | Author: | No comments yet »

Almost half of Apple Watch owners have used their nose to operate the device.

That was one of the questions posed early on Thursday at Glance, a day-long conference in San Francisco devoted to Apple’s AAPL -2.57% first wearable device. The addition of Walmart, the largest U.S. retailer with $290 billion sales a year (including about $13 billion online) gives Apple much more reach in selling the device.

And for Walmart, it could drive traffic to its website, on which it is spending billions to make it better compete with Amazon.com and other e-tailers. While the retailer is not yet stocking the Apple Watch on its shelves, it does offer free shipping on orders over $50 and a ship-to-store option for local pickup is also available.

Adding Walmart as a distribution path for the high-end wearable follows similar moves Apple made earlier this year to sell the device on Target.com, and in Target’s U.S. retail stores. Another 28% of respondents said they hadn’t but indicated that they “now want to try.” As some users have pointed out on forums, the nose is a good alternative when both hands are occupied (eg. carrying groceries) or covered by gloves that don’t work on touch screens.

News of the discounts and, now, the expanded retail channels, hints that Apple may be attempting to clear out Apple Watch inventory ahead of the rumored reveal of the second-generation Apple Watch. According to sources cited by 9to5Mac.com, the new model may be introduced at a March 2016 event, but it’s unclear what new features or functionality it may offer if that’s the case.
