And this is one of the reasons why the Wolfram Language rocks!
What can one do with the Wolfram Language on the Apple Watch? See apps that Stephen Wolfram and developers put together and then try them for yourself.

What a clever design! A more multi functional case for the iphone 6/6+. Too bad they don't make cases for the older iphone models.
