The word "historic" sounds like hyperbole to me. I can't imagine a tech company (even Apple) announcing anything of historic scale importance. Medical companies could, e.g. cure for cancer. But computer companies? A quantum computer maybe. Or the first AI. But neither of those are going to happen, it will just be a wearable computer.   Maybe in a few years we will all be wearing computers, and look back on this as the start, and that's what they mean by this being an...

Maybe not 4K movies, but it will have to have some fun stuff on it though. If it's all serious stuff like health monitoring, not sure how well that will go down.
The ability to make very small, very precise, mechanical devices could be very useful in the future world of nanotechnology. i.e. in assembling machines small enough to travel around in the bloodstream. I suspect ten years from now watchmakers will be more in demand than they are today, they just won't be making watches.
If it could receive power wirelessly that would be great, as it could suck some power from your iPhone if it starts running low (assuming you have your iPhone somewhere on your body, or in your bag).
I have Yosemite installed in the new VMware Fusion 7, and Yosemite doesn't recognise the VMware virtual display as something it should pixel double. So just a warning if you're thinking of buying this, on a Macbook Pro Retina, Yosemite will run at 2800x1800, not 1440x900 pixel doubled.
How will it charge then, are you thinking inductively?
The change from 30-pin to Lightning connector makes even more sense now, because it would be hard to make a fashionable watch with a large connector on it.
