Weeks ago, Apple caught everybody’s attention with their first wearable gadget – Apple Watch (formerly and unofficially the iWatch) alongside the highly anticipated iPhone 6 & iPhone 6+, and recently rumours are circulating that Chinese model Liu Wen will be the face of the hi-tech watch.
Apple is trying to position Apple Watch both as a must-have gadget and a fashion item. Apart from inviting fashion editors to the press event, they also held a Apple Watch event during Paris Fashion Week at high-end concept store Colette, which Jony Ive, Marc Newson, Anna Wintour, Liu Wen and even Karl Lagerfeld made an appearance. Then Liu Wen posted a photo from the event to instagram with the caption, “My second meeting with the #AppleWatch, this time in @colette! The first time? Well, you’ll see soon…”
The Apple Watch requires being paired with an iPhone to be used and is customizable with several watch faces and leather, metal and plastic bands to choose from.
No exact launch dates have been given but the Apple Watch is expected to become available in early 2015. Will Liu Wen be the face of Apple Watch? Well, we’ll see soon.
