The Long Wait For The Apple Watch In Singapore — A Look At The Snaking Queues

This article originally appeared on Vulcan Post.

26th June marks an important date for all Apple fans in Singapore — the Apple Watch has finally landed on our shores.

We have written much about Apple Watch and managed to get our hands on one, so do keep a look out for the review coming soon!

In the meantime, if you are looking to get yourself one, here’s a look at the queues around Singapore. According to a report from Channel NewsAsia, queues outside ION Orchard’s EpiCentre started last night (Thursday). As at 11am earlier, there were about 40 – 50 people still queueing up to get the Apple Watch. The queuing time then, from the start of the queue to the store, was approximately 90 minutes.
