Because of Chinese New Year, Apple decided to launch a special edition of Watch in some Asian countries (China, Hong Kong, Taiwan, Singapore and Malaysia).
What the company did was to combine the silver and gold cases of the Apple Watch Sport with the red bracelet, something until then unavailable. Why? The red color traditionally used during the party because it is believed to chase away evil spirits and bad luck.
These exclusive Apple Watch Sport models (available in both 38mm and 42mm sizes) will be available for purchase until February 22nd.
In addition to the watch, Apple also launched a special edition of the Beats Solo2 phone, created by James Jean. Unlike the watch, the focus here is not the color red, but the art that refers to the year of the Monkey.

On a related note, despite being on the Apple Watch special edition cake, Apple's watch arrived in Malaysia today, almost nine months after its release. At the end of the month (more precisely on January 29), the Apple Watch finally reached Portugal and Czech Republic.
Apparently, we are facing the most delayed international expansion of Ma.
