The Apple watch is here and it needs to be handled with care.

The Apple watch is out for delivery for anyone who pre-ordered and is also available for purchase in some high end boutique stores. But if you plan on using it for your day to day activities, handle with care.

During an online demonstration one CNET reporter accidentally purchased a $300 video game system from Amazon. He was trying to hit “add to wish list” but thanks to a small screen and large fingers he became a proud owner. He was able to cancel the order from his laptop, which he says has a much larger screen. He went on to say that the Apple watch was great if all you wanted to do was check the time and weather and receive notifications.  read more »

So far we know that it's being released in April with prices starting around $350. What we don't know is how much accessories and the higher end models with 18-karat gold and sapphires will cost. CNet is also reporting that Apple might reveal the apps that will be available and confirm how long the battery would last.  read more »
