Declared back in September, the Apple Watch was a long time coming, and once people had got over the shock of it not being called the iWatch, the major business of dissecting the specifications, rate and features could start.
Like existing smart watches, the Apple Watch presumes that the primary surface for connecting with apps will be an outward-facing touch screen.

The shift towards guys wearing mostly functional precious jewelry actually held in Victorian England, and continued through World War I, when guys’s wrist watches became popular among sailors and soldiers, and eventually evolved into the signifier of wealth and taste that they are today.
Vivas’ remarks suggests that the most significant difficulty for watchmakers is not simply technological but social. If rich guys suddenly decide it is acceptable to sprinkle out huge sums on purely ornamental fashion jewelry– like the gemstone-laden necklaces, bracelets, and rings that are mostly preferred by rap artists and rock stars today– then they will certainly have less cash to spend on Switzerland’s remarkably handcrafted watches. And then the Swiss watch industry may deal with an existential threat that has absolutely nothing to do with Jony Ive.
