    Does anyone know if the Watch will be eligible for a discount via the education or corporate store? I normally get a 10% on products through my company.

    The Apple Education store lists the Watch at the same prices as everyone else. The Business store does not list the Watch at all.

    Can't you just log into the store and see?
    As a teacher i can tell you that there isn't any discount on the education site.

    Good question. I don't think anything has been mentioned about this. I would think the only way to know is if the watch appears on the business or education Apple online stores. At a guess I would say no it won't purely because
    I don't think it would be regarded as an essential business or education purchase.

    Just checked royal mail's app,e site as well and it also does not list the watch for sale. Only the education site which has it at the same price.

    Hardly surprising.

    I can and did, it is not listed on the Corporate store at all (yet). However this does not mean it will not show up. I am sure it is just a boolean isCorporateDiscount type value in there database. I was asking to see if anyone had information other than just checking the store. I am assuming it will not carry a discount.

    From past experience, laptops and accessories usually have a corporate discount on Day 1, but I've never seen an iPhone have a discount on day 1.

    As you say, it is a guess. At this time, there is not a discount but if you have a business partner perhaps you can reach out to that person and get advised whether it would be advantageous for you to wait a few weeks.
