Even before the Apple Watch is out in the markets, there is an iPhone app made by developers at the Belgian IT firm Underside that lets you wear the smartwatch on your hand and even take pictures of it, for you to share it with the world.

The app is called ARWatch and is available for free to all iPhone users. It is not available on the App Store, so users have to go to the company’s website and install it via their mobile browser. Once you install the app, you will need to authorize it by clicking on ‘Trust’ to enter the app. Also Read - Apple Music Lossless, Spatial Audio features with Dolby Atmos coming soon to India
The app requires you to take a print out of a paper target. When you open the app, it automatically switches on the camera, and whenever it detects the paper target, it converts it into the Apple Watch. Also Read - Apple sells more iPads in early 2021 than ever, grows along with Samsung
The app uses augmented reality to give you a feel of how the Apple Watch will look on your wrist. By tapping on the screen, you can change the color of the straps. There is also an option at the bottom to change the variant from 38mm to 42mm to see how both the sizes fit your wrist.
This is a great app for users who are interested in buying the Apple Watch, giving them a fair idea on how it will look on their wrist. All you need is a printer, some scissors, and an iPhone of course. You can manually download this free app via a mobile browser here.
AppleInsider, the first one to spot this creative app, even took a video while testing the app. Apple is going to start taking pre-orders for the Watch on April 10, with shipments starting on April 24.
