The long wait is over. Apple Watch has finally arrived at Power Mac Center, the premier Apple partner in the Philippines. After months of anticipation following its worldwide launch in March, the big reveal happened on October 23 at Power Mac Center’s flagship store in Greenbelt 3.
Apple Watch is the tech giant’s first foray into wearable technology. Apart from being an incredibly accurate timepiece and a groundbreaking health and fitness companion, Apple Watch was designed to provide more intimate and immediate ways of connecting. Important information and essential features are now just a raise of the wrist away.
“Power Mac Center customers have long been clamoring for us to carry Apple Watch in our retail locations. Finally, they can get their hands on Apple’s most personal device yet,” said Princess Laosantos, Manager – Product Management Department of Power Mac Center.
At its core, Apple Watch enables users to view key notifications like call, text, and email alerts, and respond anytime, anywhere. Users can ask assistance from Siri at the push of the Digital Crown, control music by voice, and pay even without credit card on-hand through Apple Pay. With Digital Touch, Apple Watch allows communication in all-new ways such as through a sketch, a tap, or even the rhythm of the user’s own heartbeat.
In the same way that choosing what to wear is very personal, Apple encourages users to inject their personality into their choice of Apple Watch. It comes in three models, the aluminum Apple Watch Sport, the stainless steel Apple Watch, and the solid gold Apple Watch Edition in two sizes, the 42-mm and 38-mm. The watch face can be customized in a lot of ways, ranging from traditional analog, to beautifully animated butterflies and jellyfish, to the information-rich modes. A full range of straps and bands in stainless steel, leather, and fluoroelastomer can also be easily interchanged.
Apple Watch Edition, crafted from custom rose or yellow 18-karat gold alloys, is available exclusively at Power Mac Center Greenbelt 3. Those who want to try it on may arrange an appointment and be assisted by Apple Watch Experts deployed in-store.
While Apple Watch supports most iOS apps, it is particularly proud of its integrated health and fitness apps. Apple believes that fitness isn’t limited to running, biking, and hitting the gym. Apple Watch tracks every physical activity and encourages further movement. It ultimately helps set and keep track of fitness goals.
“Apple Watch is a reimagining of the watch as we know it. It’s a unique timepiece with innovative features perfect for any Filipino lifestyle – be it for fitness enthusiasts, working professionals, even fashion-savvy ones,” said Ivan Ambrosio, Assistant Brand Manager of Apple for Power Mac Center.
Patrons may avail of Apple Watch models from Power Mac Center Greenbelt 3 and TriNoma starting today, October 23, 2015. Price starts at ₱19,990.00 for Apple Watch Sport.
