The much-anticipated Apple Watch has begun allowing in-store previews and pre-orders on Friday, April 10. Customers in Australia, Canada, China, France, Germany, Hong Kong, Japan, the UK and the U.S. can try on and experience the Apple Watch at their local Apple Store or at Galeries Lafayette in Paris, Isetan in Tokyo, Selfridges in London, and select Apple Authorized Resellers in Japan and China.
French website Metronews and Instagram users from Australia have posted videos and photos of the Apple Watch (see below).
Apple Watch Pre-order
According to Apple’s official announcement, customers can pre-order the watch through the Apple Online Store (www.apple.com) beginning April 10 at 12:01 a.m. PDT for delivery on April 24. Those who want to try the watch first before making their purchase can do so through their local Apple Store. There will be a specialist to assist would-be buyers in fitting and choosing their bands and editions. But first, they have to set an appointment through www.apple.com.
Beginning April 24, Apple Watch will also be available at boutiques in major cities including Colette in Paris, Dover Street Market in London and Tokyo, Maxfield in Los Angeles and The Corner in Berlin, and select Apple Authorized Resellers in China and Japan.
Apple Watch availability in your area
As first spotted by MacRumors, Apple’s Find Locations tool can also help would-be buyers to look for Apple Watch availability in their local area.
“We are excited to welcome customers tomorrow and introduce them to Apple Watch, our most personal device yet. Based on the tremendous interest from people visiting our stores, as well as the number of customers who have gone to the Apple Online Store to mark their favorite Apple Watch ahead of availability, we expect that strong customer demand will exceed our supply at launch,” said Angela Ahrendts, Apple’s senior vice president of Retail and Online Stores.
“To provide the best experience and selection to as many customers as we can, we will be taking orders for Apple Watch exclusively online during the initial launch period,” she added.
