A little more than two weeks before the Apple Watch goes on sale on April 24, the Cupertino-based company has released a first series of "Guided Tour" videos for its smart watch. Pre-ordering begins April 10.
The videos available on the Apple website allow you to better understand how to receive and respond to messages on your watch, but also on how to personalize your screen and even share emotions and "tap" your friends. More videos are planned for between now and its release date, most importantly regarding handling phone calls, listening to music and using Siri.
There are two ways to order your watch: either by ordering it directly from the Apple website, or by reserving one at an Apple Store. Unlike for its other products, Apple hopes to make appointments with every future buyer in order to best determine the precise model that corresponds to his or her needs and to provide a quick how-to tutorial before completing the order.
The first generation of the Apple Watch is available in three model lines: Apple Watch Sport, from $349 to $399, the "classic" Apple Watch, from $549 to $1,100 and Apple Watch Edition, from $10,000 to $17,000. The Apple Watch Edition model comes in 18-karat gold version with a sapphire crystal display.
In related news, luxury customization company Goldgenie is already offering diamond-encrusted Apple Watch models priced as high as £110,000 (about $164,000).
