    So besides the ol' news that Apple Watch will be sold exclusively online for the first few weeks, will it be sold eventually at a third party authorized retailer, like best buy or amazon? I'd imagine foe the first few weeks that it becomes available in retail store, there will be huge lines, like the iPhone launch.

    The way apple is treating the watches as jewelry, the odds aren't good IMO.

    If they do, I can see only the sport models available at authorized resellers.

    Apple Authorized Resellers will NOT carry Apple Watch in the near future. Apple has stated that they want their own sales practices to be used, and they cannot guarantee that with an Authorized Reseller. So, for now, it's Apple Retail and select fashion boutiques that are staffed with Apple staffers.

    makes sense. would rather deal with an apple sales person than a best buy salesperson.
