First Apple Watch Unboxing Video Surfaces

As the initial wave of reviews for the much-anticipated Apple Watch began flooding in this morning, French website Metronews posted one of the first unboxing videos for Apple's wrist-worn device, showing off specifically what appears to be the 42mm Stainless Steel Case with Milanese Loop Apple Watch.

The video is short, but confirms that photos of the packaging shared yesterday were legitimate, with a squat, square box housing the MagSafe charging cable in its bottommost compartment and the actual Watch in its own plastic-looking box separate from the rest of the packaging.


Metronews runs through a few of the Watch's features after the unboxing, showcasing some quick swipes through Glances and even longer looks at sending taps, drawings, and a heartbeat to another Watch user.

Along with its featured review of the Apple Watch posted this morning, Mashable debuted a Vine unboxing of the device, showcasing a stop-motion reveal of the link bracelet option slowly emerging from its packaging.


The Apple Watch launch date of April 24 is getting closer and closer, with pre-orders going up as soon as this Friday, April 10 at 12:01 AM Pacific Time. Stay up to date on what all the major outlets are thinking of Apple's newest wearable in MacRumors' Apple Watch review round-up hub, which we'll update as more sites post their thoughts on the device.

Haters going to hate. What is your definition of classy packaging?


I'm going to have to assume the poster was looking for something like this: mahogany box blessed with the giggles of baby harp seals and inlaid with diamonds and elven hair.

I can't help but hear "Sledgehammer" by Peter Gabriel playing in my head while I watch this.

I expected a more classy packaging since the Watch is so expensive....

When the guy in the video turns over the external packaging to get at the internal box holding the Watch, it begins to fall apart. Do you think that's because he already "cut the tape" securing it in there? Or did Apple make a package that is likely to fall open when people are digging for that internal box?

Don't like the Milanese Loop, but anyways, look forward to getting my 42mm SG Sport.

My watch is gonna be used more while working out.

Do my eyes see what they think they're seeing? No included charger in the box? If so, wow... As much as I love Apple; that's insane they can't-don't-won't include a charger with a $350+ item.

Yes, I know I can use my iPhone's charger to charge the watch but come on. What happens if they both need to be charged at the same time?


Yes. Your eyes need LASIK.

She clearly pulled both a USB charger and charging cable out of the box.

Next time, pay more attention before commenting.
