Apple’s extending that concierge service feel that I got from the try-on appointments. I got this email this morning inviting me to schedule an online Apple Watch Personal Setup appointment. It’s not entirely clear from the wording of the email if it’s live or a selection of canned videos. Either way, it’s an interesting development.
The email also mentions that you could alternatively schedule a personal setup appointment at an Apple Store, like you historically could for your new Mac or iPhone.
You’ll need a computer or iPad to view the video, as your Watch and iPhone will be tied up during the setup process.
I’m interested to try it out, but I have a commitment this evening, and I’m not likely to let scheduling a session delay me setting up the watch and using it for too long :-)
