It is interesting that the mass adoption of individual cell phones almost put the watch industry out of business. Well, the smart watch is going to change that. As of today, the high tech battle of the wrist watch went to Defcon 1. As predicted, the top secret, years in the planning, Apple Watch is being launched as a luxury jewelry item.
