After months of speculation, the Apple wearable is finally here. It's called, well, Watch. Technically it is called "Apple Watch." An iPhone is required for Watch.
The watch is all about customization, "to reflect your personal style and taste," says Tim Cook. After the watch launched, stocks skyrocketed to 101.56. Cook described this as a "the most personal device we have ever created." The watch is in line with HealthKit as expected. Cook notes that this is very much not a shrunken iPhone.
Of note is the "digital crown," basically a traditional winding watch gear remastered for navigation. This is the Watch's home button (and it's pretty genius.) Jony Ive, the designer, is hinted to as Cook says, "Watch has an amazing and rich design story." For how much concern there was around the Watch not looking clean or well, wearable, it actually turned out quite stylish.
There are all sorts of band options (like a normal watch): leather, metal, loop. The leather is a personal favorite, though the links looks elegant even with the screen. This thing is all about customization, as there are also tons of watch faces, everything from a standard analog watch to a galaxy view.
