In October 2014, the Apple Watch released its magazine cover with Vogue China, featuring the Chinese model Liu Wen. Now, as the company prepares to reveal the Apple Watch in April, the device is given its U.S. magazine cover debut. Its March issue will feature cover model Candice Swanepoel, best known for her work as a Victoria’s Secret Angel, wearing Apple’s unreleased smartwatch.
Considering Swanepoel’s athletic prowess, it was the best accessory for her sporty cover shoot. She told SELF, “I’m an athlete. I use every single muscle, especially my core and arms, when I pose. It’s so important for me to feel strong!”
Candice Swanepoel will be demonstrating the Apple Watch Sport with a white fluoroelastomer band. Self also gives a brief overview of Apple Watch’s features, such as its accelerometer, heart rate sensor, GPS and WiFi in print and in photos.
Self will probably one of many publications to feature the Apple Watch in the coming weeks as the product‘s launch approaches, and the company plans to market the Apple Watch to a wide range of potential customers.
Aside from existing details on the upcoming device, the short blurb on SELF’s website does not give new information regarding Apple’s forthcoming wearable. It is also unclear if the print version will bring a more comprehensive look at the new product.
The iPhone maker asked several developers to make content for the Apple Watch to have their apps completed by mid-February. Apple is also reportedly inviting certain developers to its Cupertino headquarters to put the finishing touches on some Apple Watch apps.
According to Apple CEO Tim Cook, the Apple Watch will hit the market in April, but the exact date is still unclear.
