    It's kind of chunky, thicker than an iPod nano.
  • Scott Stein 9/9/2014 5:59:05 PM
    And yes, it pops into accessories.
  • James Martin 9/9/2014 5:59:07 PM
  • Shara Tibken 9/9/2014 5:59:09 PM
    Still watching a video of this design and the features of the new watch.
  • Tim Stevens 9/9/2014 5:59:13 PM
    The gold is actual gold!
  • Tim Stevens 9/9/2014 5:59:19 PM
    There's an aluminum model too.
  • James Martin 9/9/2014 5:59:28 PM
  • Tim Stevens 9/9/2014 5:59:35 PM
    Apple Watch!
  • Tim Stevens 9/9/2014 5:59:41 PM
    Standing ovation!
  • James Martin 9/9/2014 5:59:44 PM
  • Shara Tibken 9/9/2014 5:59:44 PM
    Cook walks back on stage wearing the watch
  • James Martin 9/9/2014 5:59:59 PM
  • Shara Tibken 9/9/2014 5:59:59 PM
    Still not sure if it's called iWatch? I guess so?
  • Scott Stein 9/9/2014 6:00:02 PM
    Apple Watch. With Apple logo. And it's a rectangle screen. Square?
  • Tim Stevens 9/9/2014 6:00:16 PM
    Tim Cook is back on stage, clapping himself back to the employees in the room who obviously have worked very hard on this.
  • James Martin 9/9/2014 6:00:19 PM
  • Scott Stein 9/9/2014 6:00:26 PM
    It's indeed like the iPod Nano with a big, sexy design upgrade.
  • Shara Tibken 9/9/2014 6:00:27 PM
    Cook: Apple Watch is the most personal device we've ever created
  • James Martin 9/9/2014 6:00:35 PM
  • Shara Tibken 9/9/2014 6:00:45 PM
    Cook: We set out to make the best watch in the world, one that is precise, that's synchronized with an international time standard.
  • James Martin 9/9/2014 6:00:47 PM
  • Shara Tibken 9/9/2014 6:00:55 PM
    Cook: It's incredibly customizable so you can find one that reflects your personal style and taste.
  • Tim Stevens 9/9/2014 6:00:58 PM
    Interesting to hear Tim talk about the Watch's accuracy as... a watch. Most other smartwatch manufacturers don't even mention that.
  • James Martin 9/9/2014 6:01:07 PM
  • Shara Tibken 9/9/2014 6:01:18 PM
    Cook: Because you wear it, we inveted new intimate ways to connect and communicate directly from yoru wrist. And it works seamlessly with iCloud. And it's a comprehensive health and fitness device
  • James Martin 9/9/2014 6:01:23 PM
  • Shara Tibken 9/9/2014 6:01:30 PM
    Cook: Apple Watch took very deep thinking and out of this came some truly remarkable innovation
  • Tim Stevens 9/9/2014 6:01:37 PM
    There's a crown on the right, and a small button as well. You can twist the crown for some interface elements, press the button to select, presumably.
  • Shara Tibken 9/9/2014 6:01:50 PM
    Cook: One of those was the user interface. As it turns out with every revolutionary product that Apple has created, a breakthrough in user interface was required.
  • Tim Stevens 9/9/2014 6:01:52 PM
    Cook is calling this a "breakthrough."
  • Scott Stein 9/9/2014 6:02:02 PM
    The dial to navigate reminds me of iPod click wheel.
  • James Martin 9/9/2014 6:02:18 PM
  • Shara Tibken 9/9/2014 6:02:30 PM
    Cook: With the Mac we introduced the mouse to make navigation simple. Clickwheel on iPod allowed users to scroll through thousands of songs. With iPhone, multitouch gave us the ability to interact with a beautiful canvas of photos of videos.
  • Scott Stein 9/9/2014 6:02:37 PM
    Clearly through-the-roof design upgrades. A gold version. But seems to aim for kids with rubber style bands.
  • Tim Stevens 9/9/2014 6:02:40 PM
    Waiting to hear about the sensors on the back. They look like four camera flashes.
  • James Martin 9/9/2014 6:02:40 PM
  • Shara Tibken 9/9/2014 6:02:56 PM
    Cook: What we didn't do was take the iPhone and shrink the user interface and strap it on your wrist. The dispaly is to small. It would be a terrible user experience. Jokes about touch-to-zoom.
  • James Martin 9/9/2014 6:03:02 PM
  • Tim Stevens 9/9/2014 6:03:06 PM
    Cook says that "pinch to zoom" covers the content and "just doesn't work."
  • Shara Tibken 9/9/2014 6:03:21 PM
    Cook: We placed extra functionality in a mechanisms that's been on the watch for decades. The dial, which Apple calls the Digital Crown
  • James Martin 9/9/2014 6:03:21 PM
  • Shara Tibken 9/9/2014 6:03:38 PM
    Cook: It's a very simple and elegant and amazing input and navigation device
  • James Martin 9/9/2014 6:03:48 PM
  • Shara Tibken 9/9/2014 6:03:58 PM
    Cook: When on a map, when you turn the Digital Crown, it zooms in and out. When you have a list, you can scroll through the list. And you can do all of this without blocking the screen.
  • Tim Stevens 9/9/2014 6:04:05 PM
    The crown lets you scroll without blocking the screen. A very nice idea. Pressing the crown pops you back to the home screen.
