Think the Apple Watch looks pretty interesting but not sure if you want one? Lumoid is hear to help. Once the Apple Watch launches, Lumoid will be offering a service that allows you to rent one of Apple’s smartwatches for a certain amount of time, similar to how you rent a nice tuxedo. The gold Apple Watch won’t be available, but this could prove to be a very useful service for people who aren’t sure whether they want an Apple Watch or not.
You can rent a tuxedo for your prom. You can Rent the Runway for a fancy dress to wear to your best friend’s wedding. And thanks to Lumoid, soon you’ll be able to rent an Apple Watch. No, not the gold one. We recently wrote about gadget rental site Lumoid as a source for trying out gadgets like the Jawbone UP24 activity tracker or Google Glass—you can order Lumoid’s wearables in batches of five and see which fits your actual lifestyle the best, rather than just guessing based on what you can glean from product websites and reviews. And we mentioned that Lumoid already has a waiting list to test-drive the Apple Watch. You can sign up with your email address to be notified when you can rent one of Lumoid’s limited stash of Apple Watch and Apple Watch Sport models, sometime after Apple starts shipping them April 24.
