Curious about the Apple Watch, but not sure about buying one? There's a way to test drive before you shell out the money.
Lumoid is a San Francisco-based start-up that is offering consumers the chance to rent the newest Apple product. Specifically, the Sport edition will cost you $45 to rent for one week. If you decide to buy the Watch then $25 of that will be applied to the final purchase price. As for the stainless steel version? That model will cost you $55 to rent, and $30 of that would go toward the purchase.
Lumoid's CEO Aarthi Ramamurthy says that there are already more than 3,000 people on Lumoid's waiting list. "Thousands of people have been adding themselves," she told CNBC. "It's been a little shocking for us, but in a good way. We are hoping that we can fulfill this demand, and then convert them to purchases."
Can you rent the 18-karat gold Watch, which starts at $10,000? Well, no. That won't be available to rent. (Tweet This)
