I'm City A.M.'s award-winning technology editor, covering everything from happenings at Apple and Google to the latest London startup. In particular fintech, blockchain, artifical intelligence, driverless cars, virtual reality and the sharing economy get me out of bed in the morning. I'm always trying to illustrate stories with pictures of dogs. Sometimes with some success. I was named technology journalist of the year at the UK Tech Awards.

The hotly anticipated Apple Watch has gone on sale to much fanfare from lovers of Apple, tech and watches alike. 

Orders for the watch are being taken solely online at this stage and demand is expected to outstrip supply.

While you can head to Apple stores and Selfridges in London to check out the watch range – which numbers a massive 38 different styles – in real life, you could miss out.

Indeed, at least one style – the top of the range £13,500 18 carat gold watch – has already sold out.

With Apple's dizzying array of choice – and perhaps more importantly, prices – the decision on which to go for is a tough one.

Here's our quick at-a-glance guide to all the options to make sure you don't miss out on getting your hands on the Apple Watch. Still wondering if it's worth getting one? Here's what the critics think.
