It's all about wearable tech. The next big thing, trouble is, no one's (yet) discovered the so-called "killer app", in other words the thing that makes people outside the techie bubble sit up & say "you know what, that makes a lot of sense". Mobile phones were a (relatively) niche market until they were combined with cameras, media players and email which makes them pretty much indispensable nowadays to anyone below 50.

So back to the Apple watch, they are trying to anticipate the next big thing. Having looked pretty closely at the specs, I can't see the point personally, and as anyone who knows me will know I am in no way averse to new tech, but if anyone can succeed here it's Apple. There were other MP3 players around prior the iPod, there were other phones that emailed and had media players, cameras and touchscreens prior the iPhone, there were other tablets prior the iPad, but Apple have a way of making these work where others simply can't. I have a feeling though that like google glass and other smart watches on the market this will be another false start getting wearable tech to a mass market, but it's getting closer, and as I said, if anyone can do it, Apple can.
