This morning Target announced that it’s rolling out the Apple Watch to some of its US stores on this week, with all US stores getting it October 25th. This marks the second big US chain after Best Buy to get the device. Apple Watch will roll out to on October 18th.

Target says it will carry 20 models in both 38mm and 42mm sizes. It notes that it will carry at least the Space Grey and Rose Gold colors, though we assume it will also carry others. No word on whether it’s just the aluminum or whether they’ll have steel models as well (or Editions, though unlikely).

Apple’s sales tactics on the Apple Watch have differed significantly from its other products, which is befitting the very different nature of a wearable. A handful of outside fashion stores and boutiques, for instance, have been carrying the Edition from day one. Target, aka Ron Johnson’s Miracle, aka where I buy detergent and bananas when we don’t want to go to two different stores, is a big retailer. It’s also very solidly mid-market, on the downward sloping bit.

This larger and more budget conscious retailer should be carrying the Apple Watch in plenty of time for the holiday shopping season. The aluminum devices would make for somewhat hefty, but not bank-breaking, Christmas gifts for teens this winter.
