The way I see it, wrist watches filled a gap in the market ie, you couldn't carry your carriage clock around with you so someone made it smaller and put it on your body. But, I haven't worn a watch in years

This feels like Apple looking for something else to re-invent, and I'm not sure they're on to a winner.
