While it's not guaranteed, it's usually a safe bet that, at some point after a new product's launch, Apple will start offering refurbished models to help would-be customers save some money.

But the wait is over for folks who've been waiting for this particular smartwatch to land in Apple's online store dedicated to refurbished products.

Apple has reportedly slowed hiring of Geniuses at its retail stores

But it sounds like Apple is slowing down on hiring this particular member of the staff.
