Apple is to finally release its smartwatch for sale in Ireland.

The Apple Watch, which works with iPhones and will eventually allow people to buy things in Irish shops by swiping it against a scanner, will cost from €430 for the entry-level device to €13,300 for the 18-carat rose gold edition.

Apple released its upgraded Watch OS 2 on Monday after a delay caused by a bug.

The updated interface allows more watch faces and apps and allows the gadget to perform some online functions without being connected to an iPhone.

Apple has not disclosed how many Watch devices have been sold since it was launched earlier this year.

The Watch will be available this Friday from retailers, as well Apple's own online store.
