One month after the debut of the Apple Watch in the Apple retail stores Best Buy announced that it will be offering the watch in 100 of its retail outlets and in their online store.
Starting Aug. 7, Best Buy will be the first national retailer, other than Apple Stores, where customers can buy the Apple Watch. It will begin to arrive in more than 100 Best Buy stores and will also be available on BestBuy.com. Another 200 of our stores will have the Apple Watch in time for holiday shopping.
Best Buy will carry the Apple Sport and Apple Watch along with a wide selection of accessories and bands. It will not, however carry the Apple Watch Edition.
Until this Best Buy announcement only a handful of high-end boutiques and department stores including Colette in Paris, Dover Street Market in London and Tokyo, and Selfridges in London were offering the Apple Watch outside of Apple Retail Stores.
Best Buy plans to follow the initial rollout with another 100 stores in the coming months.
