SINGAPORE - With Chinese New Year (CNY) about a month away, tech giant Apple has introduced two limited edition Apple Watch models that are exclusive to this part of the world.

These CNY Apple Watch Sport models, available in 38mm and 42mm, feature the gold aluminium and silver aluminium cases  and are paired with a red Sport Band. Current Apple Watch Sport models do not have a red Sport Band pairing as an option.

The CNY gold Apple Watch version's red band will come with a matching gold aluminium pin instead of the regular silver pin. This full gold-red colour combination symbolises good fortune in the Chinese tradition, and will probably be the more popular watch of the two.

Pricing for the special Apple Watch starts from $518 for the 38mm model and $598 for the 42mm models.

The limited edition watch is available only in Singapore, Malaysia, Hong Kong, Taiwan and China and will go on sale from Jan 15 to Feb 22 on its online store and selected Apple authorised resellers here.
