Only an hour and half to go until EVERY SINGLE Apple tech blog backpedals on everything they were criticizing about smartwatches about 8 months ago. Things to note:
1) Square is now definitely the best shape for a smartwatch. This is no longer a dull and nerdy shape.
2) One day battery life and nightly charging is no longer an issue, it is a standard.
3) Having to own/purchase and carry around another unique charger is now a privilege, not an inconvenience... cause magnets.
4) No price is too high. Any ridiculous amount announced today is a gift to us, the consumer.
5) The fact that it only works with one ecosystem is a feature, not a limitation.
6) Any content displayed on such a tiny screen from maps to photos is no longer ridiculous, it's magical and amazing.
7) Daylight visibility or lack thereof is no longer a consideration or is even needed.
8) Apple "invented" the smartwatch.
Update: worse than I expected. I'm amazed how accurately I predicted #4 :) #applewatch
