Apple officially announces the Apple Watch

Apple has officially announced the long rumored iWatch which will officially be called the Apple Watch. Accurate within 50 milliseconds and made of a sapphire crystal display, the Apple Watch is a comprehensive health and fitness device as well. Apple is calling it one of the most precise and remarkable innovations they've ever made.

The Apple Watch combines technology and fashion. With a focus on customization and personalization, Apple will offer many different options including an 18K gold band. Since the Apple Watch will combine fitness tracking, the sensors are on the underside so you can retrieve a range of health information.

As expected, the Apple Watch also runs its own custom interface. From what we're hearing, the Apple Watch will require iPhone interaction, which means non-iPhone owners won't be able to pair with it.

We'll be posting more details as we find them out. For more information on the Apple Watch and for all other Apple event announcements, check out our live coverage via the links below!
