Apple has finally revealed all regarding the Apple Watch, the wrist-based wearable it first introduced last September. Many of the Apple Watch’s particulars were already known, but here, for the first time, is a comprehensive look at what will no doubt become the world’s most popular smartwatch. Apple today added the newest addition to its Apple family which is Apple Watch. This is the most personal Apple device ever. Apple Watch isn’t just with you, it’s on you. Apple Watch is designed to appeal to a broad range of personal styles because what you wear is an expression of who you are. Apple watch is cased in Stainless steel cases in two beautiful finishes traditional and space black.
Apple Watch is available in three collections. 1: Apple Watch Sport. 2: Apple Watch. 3: Apple Watch Edition.
- Apple Watch Sport has cases made from anodized aluminum in either silver or space gray.
- Apple Watch is available in Stainless steel cases in two beautiful finishes — traditional and space black.
- Apple Watch Edition is relished with 18-karat gold cases in yellow or rose.
Design and Material
The aluminum used to make Apple Watch Sport is 60% stronger than standard alloys but just as light. We believe this aluminum alloy sets a new standard, both in the way it performs and the way it looks. The stainless steel used to make the cases becomes up to 80% harder through a specialized cold-forging process. With stainless steel, Apple have given a traditional material a new expression.The bands receive the same careful consideration. Each links bracelet is made from more than 140 individual parts. Apple Watch Edition is crafted from 18-karat solid yellow or rose gold.
