Another pretty important aspect of the upcoming wearable is the selection of different body materials that's going to be offered by Apple. Obviously, just like with the strap types, Apple has made sure that there's enough variety of body materials so that as much different consumer tastes as possible as covered. The beautiful housings are made from all kinds of custom-produced alloys: from stainless steel, to 18-karat rose gold. Overall, there are six different types of materials that the Apple Watch can come in. Check them out in the following gallery!

Ok... but none of this 'Ooo Look, It's A Different Color' tripe has anything to do with additional functionality (for the additional cost) or the FACT that there was not a single mention of Battery Life? They may have invited all manner of 'fashion' industry types, but this really isn't a very good looking watch/device when all's said and done... it's actually rather bulky and boring.

Me too, the massive sales of these phones should make apple go bankrupt. Have pity on them.

Am I the only one that still can't see any real reason to buy a smartwatch? Even the best looking smartwatch (Moto 360) is still outclassed by a 140 dollar timex...

6 different colors doesn't mean 6 different materials let alone six different alloys... Someone needs to dig harder. I count three materials, maybe the aluminum's are 6061, 7075 and the steels of the 300 series and the gold of different grades, but this article doesn't have the proof to back it up....

You are giving them (PA) too much credit. They would really be better off just saying 6 different finishes. I could see aluminum and maybe stainless, but I have a really hard time believing those watch bodies are made of gold rather than just gold plated.

Where's the titanium model? Or the platinum model? Lots of low quality stuff I see -- aluminum is cheap and gives you Alzheimer's. Gold is soft and wears out. Stainless steel is okay, but heavy compared to titanium. Platinum is a finer metal than gold, but isn't offered. Titanium, light, strong, used to make many high performance parts, is nowhere to be found.

Even if it were solid gold, which I doubt, you're left with a big, thick, clunky, chunky, battery consuming, extremely expensive, phone accessory that is truly useful for only one thing - telling the time. And that's assuming iOS 8 isn't plagued by the daylight savings time bug that has hit the past several iOS versions (through 7).
