It wasn't, but It is now, and I'm guessing it will also come to Apple's attention.
The items marked "confidential" per Apple have never been reported Mel, and there's a lot of 'em.and here ya go, from the contract:"Consumer Electronic Products" means personal computers (portable and desktop); tablet or slate style computing devices; handheld electronic and/or communication devices (e.g., smartphones, digital music players, multi-function devices, etc.); any device whose function includes the creation, storage or consumption of digital media; any...
Cite? The actual contract itself has never been revealed to the best of my knowledge. the only things known and reported were the limited details from SEC filings. I'll nearly guarantee that Apple is not aware the actual contract details are accessible by the public.
Whoa!! Someone isn't being very careful with "confidential information!! Expect this one to disappear as soon as Apple gets wind of it. http://contracts.onecle.com/liquidmetal/apple-transaction-2010-08-05.shtml
That's not the actual contract pertaining to production rights Mel. Apple may well be able to produce electonic "watches" while being restricted from manufacturing mechanical watches (that may be exclusive to Swatch) as you believe. I do too. But Apple's contract spelling out their rights and obligations has not been published to the best of my knowledge. The best we have is an SEC filing with limited details, only reporting what was required and no more.

More on Apple Pay security as it concerns the Apple Watch. http://tinyurl.com/prhbjjk "Apparently, the Apple Watch is going to use a PIN code to authorize Apple Pay, after which the device will remain authorized as long as it remains on your wrist. It accomplishes this using one or more of the sensors on the back of the watch, which can intelligently determine if you’ve taken it off. After you’ve taken it off, the watch is locked out from being to work with Apple Pay...
I thought that's the way other "wallets" like Google Wallet and PayPal Mobile worked too."Your actual credit card number is not stored. Only the virtual prepaid card is stored and Android's native access policies prevent malicious applications from obtaining the data. In the unlikely event that the data is compromised, Wallet also uses dynamically rotating credentials that change with each transaction and are usable for a single payment only."

+1Yeah, looking back on the first gen wearables a few years from now most will probably find things about them that sucked. Battery life will probably be one of 'em. Big deal, it's gotta start someplace. Most devices that follow will build on the good stuff from the previous version and then bring new things to the table. First gen's often have issues, big surprise. Wait until follow-up versions before passing judgment.
