Apple is showing off its watch to the public in Paris for just one day

When Apple debuted its watch earlier this month, it was keen to invite fashion bloggers and the press. Now it's letting anyone see it, as long as they're in Paris today and don't mind staring at it through glass. The company is showing off its watch at fashion store Colette in Paris, marking the first time it's being shown off to the public since an invite-only event Apple held in Cupertino a few weeks ago. The watches are behind window displays that went up overnight, though people can get a closer look at them on the inside of the store from 11 AM to 7 PM local time.

There's still months to go before Apple ships the watch, and important questions left unanswered. While debuting it earlier this month, Apple said it would be available in early 2015. Still unclear is how much each of the three models will cost, and how good (or bad) the battery life is. For its part, Apple's already said it expects people to charge the device every night, just like they do their phones, but without being too specific.

Update September 30th, 12:32PM: here are two shots of the display in the daytime, and a little closer:
