Apple Watch to be available in Ireland, Denmark, and Austria beginning September 25

Apple Watch Fall 2016 16-9

Following our report claiming that Apple Watch will launch in U.S. carrier stores later this month, Apple has now updated its regional websites to reveal that the device’s availability will soon be further expanded. Apple this morning updated its Austria, Denmark, and Ireland websites to reveal that Apple Watch will be available on September 25th.

September 25th is also, of course, the day that the iPhone 6s and iPhone 6s Plus will be available in the initial first wave of 12 countries. Of note, however, Austria, Denmark, and Ireland are not included in the first batch of iPhone 6s countries. Apple hopes to launch the iPhone 6s in 130 countries by the end of 2015, though.

At the end of July, Apple Watch launched in three additional countries: New Zealand, Russia, and Turkey. Apple CEO Tim Cook visited the Istanbul Apple Store to celebrate the launch of the device in Turkey with customers. The announcement today that Apple Watch is coming to three new countries on September 25th brings the grand total of countries to 25. Apple Watch originally launched in nine countries back in April of this year and has been gradually expanding in availability since then.

Apple Watch’s retail presence has also been gradually growing, with the device set to become available in T-Mobile and Sprint retail locations on September 25th. The device also recently became available from additional retailers in the U.K.

    It’s weird. They have the Apple Watch at the Brussels Apple Store to show ’em off but they don’t sell them yet… :/

      we dont even have an apple store here in denmark…….

      • applegetridofsimandjack - 8 years ago

        Well the Brussels Apple Store is the first Belgian Apple Store you know… Besides Brussels is the European capital so Brussels not having an Apple Store was even bigger a disappointment as Any other city not having one at all.

      It’s a real shame, we have an Apple store now in Belgium but you can’t order the Apple watch yet, it’s a small island in the middel of Europe, the European capital (what a joke), that is completely forgotten by Apple. What the … is Apple doing?

    Apple watch also appeared on Polish iOS Apple Store app. But still no website available on

    • kasperekt - 8 years ago

      Also Poland seems to be the only country (where the Apple Watch is available) without Siri support.

  4. There should be an Apple store here in Hungary :(
