There might be another way to personalize your Apple Watch in addition to different watch bands. According to a new report from French blog iPhonenote.com, Apple will indeed allow buyers to select personalized engraving for the device.
This news isn’t exactly shocking. Both iPad and iPod touch buyers can select a personalized message to appear on the back of those devices.
The site’s source was unsure if engraving would be offered immediately when the device hits the market.
While I think it’s probably a given that Apple would allow buyers to further personalize the device to mark a special occasion, my only question is where the engraved text will appear.
As you can see, the back of the device is taken up mostly by the heart rate sensor and other markings. But the site says engraving could be on the top or side of the watch case. There could also be a chance for engraving on the back if the final product has less markings.
Apple has scheduled a special media event next Monday, March 9 at 10 a.m. PDT to announce more information about the watch. Pricing will start at $349 for the low-end Sport model.
Users will need an iPhone 5 or higher to use in conjunction with the wearable.
A mid-range Apple Watch is highlighted by its stainless steel case and sapphire glass cover. The high-end Apple Watch Edition offers an 18-karat gold case.
Back in January, Apple CEO Tim Cook said the watch will hit the market sometime in April. We should receive a firm release date during the event.
