Apple said that the Apple Watch Series 3 “is the ultimate device for a healthy life” in September and South African’s will be able to test that claim for themselves soon.

Local distribution of Apple products, iStore has announced that the Apple Watch Series 3 will be available at its stores from 20th October.

The wearable won’t come cheap however with prices starting at R5 499 and gradually working up toward R5 999.

To help ease the sting slightly iStore will offer customers that purchase the Watch in conjunction with an iPhone 8 will receive a free Modern Buckle or Leather Loop band.
