Pre-orders for the Apple Watch are just days away and the hype surrounding the product is reaching fever pitch. Apple themselves have done much to fan the fire, placing the Watch on the front of magazines and releasing a series of explainer videos, with various leaks, such as Apple's strategy to sell the Watch, having accompanied the official PR.
We now have our first glimpse of the packaging that the Apple Watch comes in via leaked photos from the U.S offices of the Daily Mail. A series of photos, picked up by MacRumors, from a now-private Instagram account owned by Jeremy Gan, a Daily Mail employee, show the box that the Apple Watch comes in and the boxes that various bands come in.
Apple has issued review units of the Watch in preparation for its pre-order date of April 10th. 9to5Mac spotted Bloomberg's Joshua Topolsky wearing an Apple Watch and so the fact that the leak comes the Daily Mail, which has likely received a review unit, adds validity to the pictures. The review unit appears to be a 42mm Collection Watch with a Milanese Loop band, costing $699.
Alongside the packaging for the actual Watch, the packaging for the Bands leaked too. Apple is going to sell a selection of the bands separately and so it stands to reason they would have their own box. Interestingly, the leaks images adhere to earlier leaks of the packaging for the bands.
Pre-orders of the Apple Watch open on April 10th.
