Picking the Chinese New Year appropriate outfit can be daunting. For one, my wardrobe consists mainly of clothes in basic colours like black, white and grey. Not very Chinese New Year I know. But choosing between buying something auspicious (a.k.a red) that I will wear probably once in a year and something to add to my capsule collection (I am quite the closet fashionista you know), the choice is pretty obvious.
Thankfully, I have another option this year. Instead of an outfit, I can accessorise with the Chinese New Year themed Apple Watch Sport. An Asia exclusive edition, the watch with the blazing red sports band is available only from now till 22 February at selected Apple.com/sg and Apple Authorised Resellers. Priced at S$518 (38mm) and S$598 (42mm), this Apple Watch Sport can only be found in China, Hong Kong, Taiwan, Singapore and Malaysia.
I also have the option to choose either the Yellow Gold case for extra fortune and luck or the plain old Silver aluminium case. Needless to say, the colour for the aluminium pin on the watch band will also match with the colour of watch case I choose.
Furthermore, I can switch the red band out for another colour band after CNY. So, for the understated metrosexual men, here’s another dressy option for you. Very smart marketing Apple.
