For many buyers, the only question following the introduction of the Apple Watch was “which one do I get?” 

Despite the various barriers to entry (cost, operating system, availability), the long-awaited device has caught the eye of Apple fanatics and wearable enthusiasts, and its April 10 release date can’t come quickly enough. 

One of the features the Apple Watch lords over its competition is its versatility. Prices and designs range widely, so there’s a version for everyone (at least in theory, of course; $350 is still plenty of cash for a lot of us). 

The number of models offers variety, but almost to an overwhelming degree. There are more than 40 different variations you can create, and if you suffered from paralysis over choosing between the iPhone 6 and 6 Plus, this is a harrowing decision. Luckily, the data geniuses over at Silk compiled this visual guide to choosing an Apple Watch. 


You can toggle the filters yourself between Apple Watch type, casing, and size, or hit up the catalogues Silk made and then further define inside these parameters what type of watch you want. Silk has broken down the options by weight and affordability. 

Helpful? Absolutely. Depressing? Definitely: It’s hard to find out that even with the ability to filter down, the least expensive Apple Watch I can come up with in my parameters is over $1,000.
