Apple Watch news just keeps rolling in. We just heard some rumors yesterday about when the first orders would ship, and now you can actually try the gadget out for yourself. Well, kind of. The designers at Pipes have created a digital version of the watch, so you can see what many of the features will probably look like.
Pipes is a personalized news app that focuses on trending topics. The demo is basic, but it'll give you a good idea about what to expect with Apple Watch. You can do a lot of things like click on the Digital Crown to return to the home page and test out different apps that are represented by circular icons on the screen.
It includes apps for basic functions like phone, maps, music and email. There are also some more interesting third-party apps like Lutron, which connects to smart lighting in your home. You can also use your mouse to scroll across the screen to get a feel for what the user interface might feel like.
In addition to the basic on-screen features, the designers have added a few things to the side of the demo that will give you snapshot of other Apple Watch Functions like Glances and push notifications.
Glances is a summary of the apps the user open the most, such as Facebook, the weather app, emails or maps.
If you click the Glances button in the demo, you'll see links to the latest trending stories from Pipes, news from Mashable and weather info.
You can take a look at the demo on the website. What do you think? Is Apple Watch all you thought it would be or do you think it's overrated?
