Apple Watch Unveiled Today
Apple fans around the world have been queuing outside Apple shops and high end Fashion retailers for their first physical introduction to the Apple Watch, which is available to pre-order from today.
As a testament to Apple’s move into the luxury fashion and lifestyle market, Selfridges opened an exclusive Apple Watch store this morning to mark the launch and notably, the Apple Watch is also on display at high end fashion concept stores Dover Street Market in London and Colette in Paris. There was much excitement in the air this morning as hoards crowded into Selfridges Apple Watch shop to acquaint themselves with these innovative smart watches.
Alex, a graphic designer, who had travelled down from Oxford for the Selfridges event, said he had come to finalise his choice of strap in person. “I have been an Apple fan for years and it makes sense for me to sync what I see on my wrist with my computer and phone for work and social reasons so I’ve been planning to get an Apple Watch since I first heard of it but I had to try it on and see the colours in person before making my choice but actually they all look cool so making a choice is difficult!”
The Apple Watch has a wide choice of colourful straps in rubber, leather and mesh and link stainless steel and comes in three models, The Apple Watch Sport, the Apple Watch and the 18ct solid gold and rose gold luxury Apple Watch Edition. The Apple Watches boast a sleek modern design but are not just a pretty face, they are sure to make the gaps between organisation and communication and simple old-fashioned time-telling more seamless than we could have ever imagined. The Apple Watch may be pre-ordered at Apple retailers worldwide and through Apple’s website from today before the first shipments are expected to go out on April 24th.
