…Apple Watch is finally available to preorder, but if you missed the mark at 12:01 a.m. you might be waiting quite a while to get your hands on one. Luckily, Apple is providing try-on appointments that will allow you to get a taste of the experience and feel one out for yourself. Recently, we took that opportunity to get our hands on a few and offer some initial impressions on the hardware and software…

In the video below, we take a look at three Apple Watch models and the widely popular Apple Watch Sport in Space Gray.

Software navigation isn’t nearly as difficult as it may seem and the Digital Crown is very helpful with this task.
