    LOL!!! Shame on Meijer! I heard in a podcast that while in development, Apple did refer to it as the iWatch. Somehow it later became the Apple Watch. I have no idea why!

    Apple has stopped using the i monicker for a long while now. Apple Watch was the first product to not bear the i in the name.

    I know!!! I just didn't know that back in the day, before the first Watch was released for purchase, that it was referred to as the iWatch. When Apple announced the first Watch, it had become Apple Watch. Someone asked Tim Cook about it, and he replied with something like "Don't you think Apple Watch sounds better"?

    A company in Europe sued Apple over the trademark name iWatch. Because of this, and they were moving away from the (i) words anyway.

    Their most successful product still has the "i" in it so it's not much of a surprise that people just assume it will have it.

    May be, but I am having severe violently anxiety attacks when someone says iWatch.

    I correct my sister all the time... and while it's a sibling thing and she rolls her eyes, I admit that it really does annoy me... especially since she has an Apple Watch!
