When Apple announced the unique 18-carat Rose Gold Apple Watch Edition, the company faced criticism and ridicule from the world of social media. Following the announcement, the company then announced a unique try-on preview experience for all Apple Watch models with the Apple Watch Edition coming with a separate VIP experience.
The Apple Watch Edition is only available in a few selected Apple Stores in selected countries and with Apple's Regent Store in London around the corner, I decided to take a look at the Rose Gold Apple Watch Edition and see what the fuss is all about.
The Apple Watch comes in several models: the entry-level Apple Watch Sport, the more expensive Apple Watch that comes inwith a stainless steel watch and the premium Apple Watch Edition, which is available in either Yellow Gold or Rose Gold. These models are then available in either 38mm or 42mm sizes and a range of watch strap lengths - personally, the 42mm watch is my favorite as it's a slightly larger display but still easy to use when on my list.
