For the Apple Watch in Paris, Apple seems to have joined forces with a Parisian boutique 'Collete' to show off the Apple Watch for the first time. According to CEO Tim Cook who spoke at the device's launch event, the company has paid a lot of attention towards the Apple Watch's development.
The main navigation tool on the Apple Watch will be it's digital crown which will control the navigation and operation of the device. The Apple Watch will also be capable of haptic feedback and monitoring the daily health activity of it's user, courtesy of four sensors present on it's back.
Sadly, the items showcased at Coulette were for display purposes only as Apple is not letting consumers to try out the Apple Watch. This follows suit with the company only allowing journalists to try the device out on their wrists and not be able to interact with the device earlier.
No details about pricing or the Apple Watch's availability were made public at Coulette. The Apple Watch is reportedly facing production issues, some of which have been credited to software development. So for all of you waiting for the device, mark your calendars no sooner than February. The device isn't expected to be light on the pocket either, with the Apple Watch Edition, made out of gold alloy expected to have a price of $1200.
