Given the years of hype around the idea of their smartwatch, it would have been all too easy for Apple to just stick a sixth-generation iPod Nano on an overpriced wrist strap and be done with it.

A confession - I'm not a smartwatch fan. They're nearly all ugly, crap battery and over-engineered. Also, I like normal watches, with nice dials and nice straps. Smartwatches stink of innovation by public companies to drive sales and share value. I'm perfectly happy having a smartphone and a stupid watch.
