I went to the Apple Store today but did not get to try the Apple Watch 🙁 However I got to play with the new 12 inch Macbook, the force touch was just amazing!!!
Here are some online videos for your viewing pleasure.
First is a video uploaded to Hong Kong-based Chan Xin‘s YouTube channel. In the video he tries on both 38mm and 42mm Sport model cases, and is put through a short demo presentation of the Watch by an employee, ending the video by checking out the Stainless Steel Milanese Loop option.
The Telegraph has a video interview with a big Apple fan at London’s Selfridges Apple Store on their channel, showcasing employees gently handling and sizing various Watches – from Stainless Steel Leather Loop to Sport versions – amongst a busy crowd.
One of the longer and more in-depth try-on videos comes out of Australia and was originally live-streamed via Periscope by user “lachlanlikesathing”. For the first few minutes in the video, Lachlan tours the Apple Watch displays before getting into a try-on appointment of his own, showcasing a few Sport options.
Of note, around the 10 minute mark, Lachlan begins attempting to mix-and-match the Space Gray casing with bands not exactly meant to match that particular color, the Apple employee helping him out going on to note the Space Gray’s intended Sports Black Band and Link Bracelet options.
YouTuber TechSmartt has published a video showcasing his Apple Watch Edition try-on appointment, where he was escorted to a special room to see the watch away from the crowds of the Apple Store. The Apple Store salesperson walked him through the composition of the gold in the device and helped him try on several different bands. The video also includes a good look at the Apple Watch Edition box.
A few other blogs have posted try-on videos, including iMore and Reuters. The Vergetook a trip to all three of Apple’s pop-up stores for the Apple Watch in Tokyo, Paris, and London, mentioning the difference of experience compared to a traditional Apple Store thanks to the high-end locations, especially the Galeries Lafayette in Paris. No doubt more videos and experiences will be coming in the next few days as more and more people are able to visit an Apple Store of their own.
All models of the Apple Watch officially drifted past the earliest 4/24-5/8 delivery estimate in just six hours after pre-orders went live this morning, with eBay scalpers re-selling the device for more than double Apple’s official price point in most cases.
