The Apple Watch is almost here and details about Apple’s new smart wearable have been flying in fast. The latest details released by Apple CEO Tim Cook reveal how many third-party Apple Watch apps have been submitted to the App Store.

Cook, in a note to Apple employees, revealed that over 1,000 third-party apps have been submitted to the App Store so far and that the number continues to grow. The number crossed the thousand mark just four days after Apple began accepting app submissions. Cook said: “Congratulations to everyone who has worked so hard for years to help this product reach our customers.”

Names of these submissions haven’t been revealed and it isn’t guaranteed that all of these apps will be made available to download.

Apple Watch employee discount

Apple employees will also be able to get a 50% discount on certain Apple Watch models. Any Apple Watch or Apple Watch Sport can be picked up under an Employee Purchase Plan, whilst employees after an Apple Watch Edition are eligible for a $550 dollar discount, according to 9 to 5 Mac.
