Apple Watch is expected to launch in early 2015, though a more exact timeframe of "spring 2015" has just been leaked.

Tech website 9to5Mac has posted a transcript of an internal video message that featured Angela Ahrendts, the retail chief at Apple. According to the transcript, which is just an excerpt from a longer internal video, Ahrendts told retail employees that Apple Watch will launch sometime after Chinese New Year on 19 February 2015.


When Apple unveiled Apple Watch in September, it teased a vague release date of "early next year" as well as a starting price of US $349. The company hasn't elaborated at all since, but today's leak from Ahrendts, who joined Apple in October 2013 as the senior vice president of retail and online stores, could be a legit clue.

Although there's still no word yet on pricing for all Apple Watch models, you can probably expect more news - and maybe even leaks - to emerge as spring gets closers.
