The most talked about smart watch currently, the Apple Watch has been made available for pre-order since early April in selected few countries (Australia, Canada, China, France, Germany, Hong Kong, Japan, the U.K. and U.S.).
For those of us who are not in those places, may have to wait for a few more months before Apple announces the arrival of the watch to more locations. I couldn’t wait. Hence I pre-ordered it from Hong Kong and got it delivered back to Malaysia.
As we all know, there are 3 versions of the wearable; Apple Watch Sport, Apple Watch and Apple Watch Edition. The one I purchased was the 42mm black Apple Watch Sport.
So here it is, on my table, in my house, in Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia. It is hard to believe but it is indeed lying in front of my eyes.
So here’s the unboxing. I tried to snap every single detail in photos so you can enjoy them.
The packaging itself is quite heavy, due to the solidness of the box and the plastic case that protects the watch. Upon lifting up the top piece, we can see that the plastic case is somehow wrapped in a matte textured sheet of paper.
This was how the plastic case looks like after peeling off that sheet of paper. Everything just felt so delicate and sophisticated at the same time.
So to find the watch, we have to lift to top piece of the plastic watch case. Tada! The Apple Watch Sport lies comfortable inside.
A closer look at the inside of the top piece. It feels very good. The bevelled Apple Watch logo looks good too. The suede piece is to prevent the watch from getting scratched.
Below the watch were the USB cable with magnetic pad along with the power adapter. The USB cable is seriously long. Like SUPER LONG.
So there you go, everything inside the box, is now outside the box.
Switched on. The watch actually looks smaller than expected. Even though this is the 42mm model, everyone thinks that it’s the 38mm one cos it does look really small in real life.
In real life.
