7 Celebs Sporting the Apple Watch

7 Celebs Sporting the Apple Watch

Apple just started shipping its first wave of watches to device superfans on Friday, including Team Matchup! (We’ll keep you posted on the device’s integration with our product.)

Nearly 1 million people ordered a watch or two when the booking window opened on April 10. Thanks in part to this interest, it largely won’t be available in most Apple stores for several months, the company has reported. (More recently, Mashable and other sites are also reporting a bottleneck in the shipping process, largely, it seems, due to which type of band you order.)

But some users got their hands — er, wrists — on the much talked-about device long before most mere mortals. We’re talking about the celebrities who have been flaunting this season’s must-have wearable for several weeks, as you can see below.


The buzziest celeb of them all, Beyonce, posted a photo to her website flashing the Apple Watch, along with the mandatory picture-perfect Coachella headdress.

Model and philanthropist Christy Turlington Burns used to the Apple Watch to train for the London Marathon, as part of her role as an Apple Health ambassador. (For those curious: She finished in a more-than-respectable 3 hours, 46 minutes, which ended up being 9 minutes under her goal.)

Yes, Drake did color-coordinate his Apple Watch band to his Coachella outfit. A fashion trend to come?

Can it get more chic than Karl Lagerfeld’s special edition gold band? (Paired with his signature black gloves, of course.)

Katy Perry shared this snap on her Instagram, of course, choosing to pair her watch with a cartoon background.

One Instagram user spotted Neil Patrick Harris — trading his usual Barney Stinson suit for a weekend casual getup — trying on the Apple Watch at the company’s flagship store on New York’s 5th Avenue. No word whether NPH ordered one!

Sophie Turner (best known as Sansa Stark) showed off her new Apple wearable on Instagram before the device became available to the public, and just after Game of Throne’s fifth season premiered.
