No! This is not Apple Watch's first ever appearance. Back in October, it made its magazine cover debut on Vogue China. But that was in China!
Now, the device's much awaited debut in the US will happen next month in an American magazine cover. This is a prominent sign that Apple Watch will be available to consumers this year, as some reports have suggested the launch to be in April.
Model and Victoria's Secret Angel Candice Swanepoel will be wearing the Apple Watch Sport with a white fluoroelastomer band on the cover of the "Self" magazine's March issue.
"Aside from the I-want-to-be-Candice quality of our new March cover, notice anything else about the photo? The Apple Watch is getting a star moment, too, as Candice is the first woman to wear one on a magazine cover in the US. With the device starting at around $349 available next month, it's on our wishlist," the magazine writes.
The magazine goes on to list down features of the wearable and why it makes for such an interesting and worthwhile purchase. It also highlights some of the Watch's main features like GPS, accelerometer, and heart rate monitor.
"I'm an athlete. I use every single muscle, especially my core and arms, when I pose. It's so important for me to feel strong!" Swanepoel told Self.
Over the months, media reports have clarified that Apple will start shipping its new watch this April. There are also pre-leaked rumours that the watch's battery life may not be its biggest selling point.
It is also suggested that the company had roped in some software developers and had them working on apps that will be ready for use by February, so that they can use them to demonstrate what the Apple Watch can do, at a future event.
Apple remains confident that the coveted Watch will be a success story. The tech giant expects to sell more than 5 million watches in the initial run, WSJ reported.
