Apple Watch pre-orders nearly hit 1-million on first day


Techies are going wild over the apple watch. There were nearly 1-million pre-orders in the U.S. on Friday, the first day the watch went on sale. More than half of those orders were for the less-expensive sports model starting at 349-dollars. High-end designer models can cost as much as $12-thousand!

So what's so great about the new Apple gadget?
You decide what apps and features you want on your watch. You can pay with it, use it to play games, wake up with it, and workout with it.

It will tell you when you've been standing too long by tapping you on the wrist. The tap will feel a little different when you have an email or text message.

One million already ordered sounds good, but compare that to the pre-orders for the Apple iPhone 6, which had 4-million orders within the first 24 hours of availability.

They're only taking pre-orders as of now. Apple will start shipping watches on April 24th. Some models are already back-ordered until June.
