Tim Cook talks Apple Watch with Chinese internet regulator

Apple CEO Tim Cook met with the Lu Wei, the head of China's internet regulator, on Wei's recent visit to the United States. While specific details of the meeting haven't been disclosed, it does appear that Cook showed Wei the Apple Watch:

From Bloomberg:

Lu Wei, minister of the Cyberspace Administration of China, visited the companies' offices, according to the report by China.com.cn, which is under the State Council. The post didn't elaborate on the reasons for Lu's visits or the dates. The report included photos of Lu with Apple CEO Tim Cook, who appears to be showing him a wristwatch-like device.

Cook apparently told Wei that he was one of the first people outside of Apple to see the fully-functioning Apple Watch in person. Wei's trip also included stops at Facebook and Amazon.
