Big Apple Buddy firm is offering next day delivery for the Apple Watch, which is not yet available in the United Arab Emirates (UAE).

The company aims to provide international customers with access to the latest technology items from the United States.

“Other popular products purchased by clients include the Microsoft Band, Jawbone UP3, Seek Thermal Camera and the Kindle Voyage,” says a representative of Big Apple Buddy.

The firm was founded by former Australian lawyers, Phillis Chan and Ben Chaung, to help global consumers buy the items directly from the US.

So far, they operate in over 50 countries, including Norway, Malaysia, and most recently the UAE.

“Our clientele is primarily made up of professionals who simply want the latest products quickly and hassle-free,” says co-founder Chan.

The delivery of the products are handled entirely by the business.

They will find the best-price item and have it shipped to the client within 2 to 4 business days.

All orders have a minimum service fee of $40.

According to the firm, that covers “all the leg work the company does for its clients, including discount negotiations, packaging, shipping and providing personalized product and shopping advice.”
