guided tours

Apple on Friday added a new ‘Guided Tours’ section to its Apple Watch website, offering an in-depth look at the device’s headlining features ahead of its April 24 launch. The page plays host to walk-through videos, which teach prospective customers how to take advantage of the Watch’s new interactions and technologies.

As of right now, there are only four videos: Welcome (general overview), Messages, Digital Touch and Faces, but Apple lists several as ‘Coming soon.’ When those have been loaded, users will be able to get guided tours showing them how to use Apple Pay, field phone calls, track their activity and workouts, and much more.

Announced in September of last year, the Apple Watch is scheduled to launch on April 24, with pre-orders beginning at 12:01 am (PST) next Friday. This will be Apple’s first major product launch since the original iPad, five years ago, and the whole world is watching to see if it can do for wearables, what it did for tablets.

Update: Apple has added the Guided Tours videos to its YouTube channel, so we’ve embedded them below.

    These videos give me a much better idea of what to expect from Apple Watch! Just added the pre-order time to my calendar!

  • It’s amazing how much customization they’ve allowed on such a small screen. The more I learn about Apple Watch, the more I want one!

  • Litchy

    They really know what they are doing 😀 After watching these videos I want mine even more! Can’t wait!!

    I am getting the classic buckle for sure, but that link bracelet looks a whole lot better when someone is wearing it. I think I’m rocking the classic buckle and getting the link bracelet as well. I wanted to get the Milanese Loop but, I’ve talked myself out of that. It’s nice, but it’s so not my style.

    • Kurt

      last video is so gimmicky. how are they not embarrassed?

      • filmantopia

        Yeah it’s going to be so humiliating for Apple when the watch outsells every other smartwatch combined in its first weekend, and continues on to be an extremely influential product.

        First weekend? More like first hour of pre-orders. #OhTheButtHurt

        Doubt it. But I don’t care either way. Doesn’t affect me. I don’t have my identity tied to a company….unlike some on this site.

      • enifome

        If u don’t care about the new watch u won’t say anything about the watch

  • stann1q

    I have never thought i will want to wear a watch again

  • William Melendez

    Oh fun, because I’ve been giving them a guided tour of my bank account for years now.
