People considering the purchase of an Apple Watch can get a glimpse at what life with the new smartwatch will be like thanks to a set of videos from Apple offering a “guided tour” of its hardware prior to its launch later this month.

The videos show off the basics of using an Apple Watch, including its key features like the Digital Crown (the dial on the side that allows people to scroll) and Force Touch, which acts as another button when a user presses hard on the screen of their Watch. Apple also has dedicated videos to show off the customizability of different watch faces, along with the Watch’s messaging system.

There are more videos coming soon to Apple’s site, covering subjects like Siri, Apple Pay, Maps, music, and the Watch’s fitness tracking features. It’s all a part of Apple’s push to show how potentially useful the device is, and convince more people to buy one.

People who already know what Apple Watch they want to buy will be able to pre-order the device online starting at 12:01 a.m. Pacific Time on April 10. Starting that day, interested consumers will also be able to visit their local Apple Store to try on different Watches and see which one they want to buy – if any.
