Get Apple Watch On Rent for $45!
You like Apple Watch and you desire it but probably you, like the majority, can’t afford it. True? Here is the sudden surge of grace for you: you can get it on rent.
Earlier today, we were having a discussion on the price range of the Apple Watch at TechFrag head office. Our gossips revolved around such questions: Will it be so easy for the common customer to spend $1000 or more on a smartwatch?
Lumoid, a startup which provides trial and purchase services for wearables, has provided answers to all our questions. The company has planned to offer Apple Watch for $45 a week. This offer will not only help the potential buyers in making decisions, but will also provide one-time opportunity to experience the sensation of Apple’s masterpiece, even if one isn’t considering to own a Watch in near future.
Lumoid will only offer the two versions, Apple Watch Sport and Apple Watch (steel), which can be afforded by general user. But the company will not risk renting the high-end Apple Watch Edition, whose price will start at $10,000.
In the starting phase, which is likely to begin in April when the watch will be out for markets, the startup will offer limited stock of Apple watches so it is registering the aspirants for Apple Watch.
“The Apple Watch is available in April and we will have limited units for you to try, before you decide to buy one,” the company announces on its website.
If you want to try Apple Watch Sport, you will have to pay $45 to Lumoid. But if the watch impresses you and you want to buy it, Lumoid will subtract $25 from total price of the watch, which means $20 will be the trial fee in that case. Similarly the trial fees for Steel version is $25. But the customer will pay $55 for the trial period. In this case, $30 will be added up to the total price of watch if the customer makes a purchase.
Lumoid has been having a very impressive output after it launched its business at the start of 2015. People show keen interest in availing its services because they get a chance to test the device between trial and purchase duration.
“The interest has been beyond our wildest expectations,” a company spokesperson told Mashable. “We’ve shipped thousands of units for people to test out and are seeing a very high conversion rate between trial and purchase. People like the idea of being able to test drive wearables, because they have so many options, and then deciding which one to buy.”
