According to the company, Apple Watch is an incredibly accurate timepiece, an intimate and immediate communication device and a groundbreaking health and fitness companion. Highly customizable for personal expression, Apple Watch also brings an entirely new way to receive information at a glance and interact with the world through third-party app experiences designed specifically for the wrist.

"Apple Watch begins a new chapter in the way we relate to technology and we think our customers are going to love it," said Tim Cook, Apple's CEO.

Prices starting at only 10K for the Edition watch? That's a bargain! Rolling Eyes

Oh well, looks like it's back to my $30 Casio from Walmart. Smile

I think there is a huge market for the Apple watch just based on iPhone users, but I'll be waiting around for the 2nd gen model as well. That model will have native apps and hopfully better battery life. I think these smart watches need at least 3-5 days work of battery life. Just for the health and sleep tracking alone.
