Last week it was revealed that Apple Watch would be launching in New Zealand on July 31st, but without any sort of pricing information. Today, however, Apple has updated its New Zealand online store with more details regarding the launch. The entry-level 38mm Apple Watch Sport starts at NZ$599 and increases to NZ$699 for the 42mm model.

The stainless steel Apple Watch starts at NZ$949 and again increases by NZ$100 to NZ$1,049 for the 42mm model. For those interested in Apple Watch Edition, the device starts at NZ$17,500 and increases to NZ$21,000 for the 42mm model, both with a Sport band.

For those keeping track, $0.66 currently equals NZ$1.00. Doing the conversions, you’ll realize that Apple Watch will be slightly more expensive in New Zealand than in the United States. For instance, the 38mm entry-level Sport runs $349 in the United States and $395 in New Zealand. In New Zealand, however, all prices listed include GST, or goods and services tax, which makes up for the price difference .

Apple Watch will launch in New Zealand on July 31 at 7:01am local time.

Update: Apple has also revealed that Apple Watch will launch in Turkey on July 31, as well. More details can be found on Apple’s online store here.
