Apple unveiled the Apple Watch today and it is great in tons of ways. Only drawback: It is not going on sale now.

Apple unveiled the Apple Watch today. Formerly rumored as iWatch, it looks like Apple has solved the smartwatch adoption problem. The Apple Watch is genius from a usability standpoint. It also incorporates the fashion thinking behind watches with the introduction of three edition and tons of band options.

The Apple Watch is highly customizable and has tons of innovative ideas like the digital crown and the taptic chip. Apple will start selling the Apple Watch in early 2015 starting at $349.

I do not understand why Apple announced the watch today. It is packed with native apps. So no real need to wait for 3rd party apps to get developed. 

Now Samsung, Pebble, Google and other smartphone makers can just copy some of the innovations to close the gap between their current smartwatches and the Apple Watch. It is early September now. If Apple launches in February or even March 2015, competitors have six months to come up with matching products. This is a very risky move from Apple and I don't get it.
