There are three Apple Watches, each available in two different sizes, and each have a range of bands available – so it’s a tectonic shift for Apple who are normally more of a “one size fits all” kind of company when it comes to their consumer products. Not this time – 38 different models.

Ranging in price from $499 right up to the extraordinary 18-carat gold Apple Watch Edition at $14,000.

You’ll be able to grab yours from April 24 as Australia is one of the first 9 countries in the world to get it.

Here are all the prices
