This is Apple Watch: Hands-on

Six months ago, Apple showed us the Apple Watch. Today, I got to look past the prototypes of last year's event and instead try out a fully-functional version, more than a little curious about whether Apple had, indeed, cracked the smartwatch question. There's no denying that plenty of thought and design effort has been put into the timepiece - and some details are, frankly, inspired compared to what the competition is doing - but will that mean Apple Watch is an instant must-have?
