    I think it will be like iOS 8 so it will be easier for people to learn how to use it.

    I agree. Some concept photos I've seen of it look like the Nike Fuelband SE.

    It needs to be waterproof. It needs to have the battery life of a watch. At least a year. If I have to take it off repeatedly to charge it, I'm going to put my casio or seiko automatic back on, and forget about the Iwatch. It should a cool design. Maybe have a ring around the face that rotates to choose options or control apple tv's or other devices remotely. It must be a sturdy, utilitarian, well designed.

    If it has to be battery hungry, like a smartphone on my wrist where every few days I gotta charge it. Then I don't want it, I'll just pull my smartphone out and use that. At the moment I don't see a reason for any of the other smart watches. Maybe apple can come in and really show people how to do a watch. But to do that it has to have parity with current watch features. NONE of the other people making smart watches have devices that are waterproof or have good battery life. They have these tiny backlit displays like an iPhone. Why. The only thing that comes close is the casio bluetooth watch. It gets battery life and water resistance right. And then does controls for iPhone music and stuff. I am thinking about getting one.

    I think you may be disappointed. I doubt any smart watch is going to last a year like its dumb ancestors. ...but to see a least several days of battery from a competent smart watch would be nice.

    It seems to me the iWatch has to be useful to make it worth what I'm sure won't be a cheap price. Just a fancy watch, fitness band, or notification center isn't enough. What I would be interested in seeing is a device that (paired with the iPhone) could be come my remote control for the growing internet of things. I like using my iPhone when I can to replace controls, but what if I had a band that used bluetooth to realize when it was near devices it could control so the top level options would change depending on location. Then it can be my full home and car remote control on my wrist . . .

    Must look good have a lot of inter grated features, Siri on board and a movement recharge system so you never have to charge it as well as water proof

    I'm willing to pay 3 to 5 hundred dollars for a high end iWatch so I need Apple to not penny pitch on a cheap gadget

    This will not be for the teenager crowd more like a board room dresser upper or an advert tech guy

    Plus, it actually having working apps like the ones on the iPhone. That would make this the best Smartwatch hands down IMO.

    Yes, this.

    I hope it doesn't look like that bangle above, that is just awful.

    I doubt I'll be interested in the iWatch. At any price. I just don't have the need for anything like that. After the new and novelty wore off, it would sit in a drawer with other unused bric--brac.

    It would require a comprehensive backend like Google's Android Wear has, which would significantly increase the difficulty of getting a smartwatch out for simply Google's competitors from then on out. Android Wear basically incorporates everything from Google Now and just having that amount of information available to a smartwatch is going to be a gamechanger, so Apple has to find some way to quickly get baked features to compensate for that lack in that regard and make up for lost time and competitive distance.

    That would be the deciding factor as to whether a smartwatch platform would succeed sooner or later.
