Tim Cook: Apple employees get 50% discount on Apple Watch

Tim Cook, in a memo to employees:

I know that many of you have been looking forward to choosing an Apple Watch for yourselves, and we want to make it easy for you. Starting Friday, in countries where the watch is available for pre-order, a special Employee Purchase Plan will offer a 50% discount on any Apple Watch or Apple Watch Sport for your personal use.

As we introduce the watch in more countries, the special pricing for employees will be offered in those countries as well. Discounts will begin at pre-order and last for 90 days after availability. AppleWeb has more details, so I invite you to check it out.

This strikes me as a top notch idea. Spread the love, spread the word. It’ll be interesting to see if Apple Store employees are wearing the Apple Watch on Friday.
