There's no way Apple wouldn't have known this was in the works. 
I have a hard time believing Jony would make a Samsung Galaxy clone. This is missing some key Appleness.  
Tim has explicitly said they're not merging ios and osx. I could see ios gaining some more functionality that makes it more usable as a laptop replacement (basically, some sort of file system that lets apps share files other than just photos).
Yeah, somehow I don't buy that it's not going to have some rather boundary pushing health features. First of all, they were concerned enough that it might be considered a medical device that they had a meeting with the FDA. It's just tracking steps like a fitbit, this would be entirely unnecessary. Second, they hired Nancy Dougherty from Sano, a company that was working on this sensor: "The needle-less, sensor-laden transdermal patch is painless (I handled a prototype,...
People stopped wearing watches because they already had a thing that told them the time -- their phone. This will do much much more than tell the time. The "watch" name is a red herring. This is an entirely new thing and comparing it to a watch is like saying in 2007 "I don't know why Apple is releasing this new thing, people stopped carry pocket watches years ago"
 are you getting it? These are not three separate devices, this is one device, and we are calling it... iWatch http://news.rapgenius.com/Steve-jobs-iphone-keynote-2007-annotated
I'm getting pretty excited about the iwatch. Basic iPhone alert/info display, possible siri interface, fitbit on steroids (motion tracking, heart rate, oxygen rate, glucose meter), built in solar trickle charging for ridiculous battery life, self orienting display, who knows, authentication, maybe even dick tracy style facetime calls.
Can anyone explain to me why AAPL is down 8% aftermarket? Seriously now. 
Irrational sentiment is annoying, but it's going to shift eventually. At certain point the p/e will become so compressed that no rational person will be able to ignore it. When that moment of clarity comes, look out. We're going to blast off to another totally irrational high. Would be nice if Apple could just have a stable value relative to the success and profitability of its business.
There's certainly a good debate about what data should be available to advertisers. What's most interesting to me about this article is this list:  Makes me VERY excited for the launch iwatch. They're not just putting a screen on your wrist. They're going all out with sensors... they didn't make the M7 just to track gyro and accelerometers.
