Been waiting to lay your hands on the Apple Watch?
Mark you calendars as Apple has just announced that on 26th June, the Apple Watch will be available in seven more countries and Singapore is one of them. The other countries to join the ranks are Italy, Mexico, South Korea, Spain, Switzerland and Taiwan.
Currently the availability of the Apple Watch is limited to only 9 countries (Australia, Canada, China, France, Germany, Hong Kong, Japan, the UK and the US), but by late April, during the company's earnings call, Apple CEO Tim Cook revealed that the company is anticipating to bring the wearable to more countries in late June. By early May, we reported of its listing on the IDA's Equipment Search List page. Sure enough, it's now a reality!
In Singapore, you can expect the wearable to be available on Apple's Online Store (www.apple.com/sg). Apple also mentioned that The Hour Glass in Singapore will have a curated selection of Apple Watch available at launch.
Now that you know it's coming, it's time to find out all you need to know about the Apple Watch. We've also been invited for the Apple Watch launch last year, so here's more photos and videos of it in action.

Even so, if you're curious to know how the interface functions, here's our video:-
In this day and age, a gadget is only as good as its ecosystem and you'll be glad to know that native apps for the watch will be available later this year (freeing it from the need to be paired with the phone) and that should truly get the watch soaring to greater heights.
Come 26th June, the smartwatch space in Singapore will truly be tested to its limits.
