Apple Watch Sport and Accessories Now Available at Walmart

Walmart has begun selling the Apple Watch Sport and accessories through its online store for U.S. customers. The discount retailer is currently only carrying 38mm and 42mm Sport models in Silver or Space Gray for $349 to $399 alongside the Apple Watch Sport Band and Apple Watch Magnetic Charging Cable.

Walmart joins a growing number of Apple Watch resellers carrying the wrist-worn device in the U.S. since its April launch, including Best Buy, B&H Photo, Maxfield, Sprint, Target, T-Mobile and dozens of other retailers nationwide. The device is not yet available in Walmart stores, but in-store pickup is available for online orders.

Unlike Best Buy, which is offering $100 off the Apple Watch Sport and Apple Watch, Walmart is not offering any discounts on the Apple Watch or accessories at this time. Best Buy, Colette and Target also offered Black Friday deals on the Apple Watch, leading to some discussion about how well the Apple Watch is selling.

Walmart offers free shipping on orders over $50 in the U.S., and in-store pickup is currently estimated to take about one week.

Did not Angela toot that the Apple Watch 'buying experience' should be akin to buying a fine luxury watch like a Patek Philipe or Rolex? Because Walmart would be my first choice to get THAT experience

Idk...our Walmart is rumored to stop price-matching stores that aren't within 15 miles beginning January 1st.
Since I'm in a small town, there is just one other grocery chain anywhere close and no other major retailers (no Target, no Best Buy, etc.)

I would hope so though

Time to move.

The most scary thing I feel is that we have some very sad human beings here that feel they are in a position to judge others simple due to the store they wish to purchase an item from.

You should be shamed of yourself for deeming any other person as less than you due to where they purchase anything.

No person is in any way better than anyone else.

We are all born equal and will all dies equal.

Treat everyone with respect.

The Apple snob factor, which mean that some sad individuals try and pretend that they are in some way better than others is something we all should wish to distance ourselves fri=om as much as possible.

In before "I can't believe Apple would sell at Wal-Mart because I spent $400 on a watch to be exclusive so people can look at me in a way that makes me feel better about myself."

When did she say that?

I also remember that, but I could not tell you exactly when. However, there was certainly plenty of "Applesnob" nonsense about it, to try to make us all believe that not only did we need it (game-changing &c.), and would "all" be buying it, but that it was a little piece of luxury, like a hand-crafted Swiss watch. The reality, from my day-to-day experience, is that of the dozens of people I know with iPhones and Macs, hardly any have bought this rather disappointing gadget. I reckon technology (battery life, independent Internet access etc.) might make it worth considering in two to three years' time. In the meantime, I am loving watching Apple and some of its customers attempting to live up the hype.

Wonder if people are still interested in the Edition realising that it is just a more expensive replica of a Walmart Watch...

You can't use an Apple Watch to buy an Apple Watch at Walmart.

Will it work with Walmart Pay?

Come on Walmart and Target! You guys are carrying watches that obviously support Apple Pay and it is VERY Convenient to pay by waving your watch over the terminal. So ENABLE APPLE PAY!

Maybe that's why Walmart seems to be selling just the Sport (cheapest) model.
