Until we see one of these in the wild, this is still just a concept video. Call me when this is a real thing. 
Between this and the WWE app, we're seeing test pieces of AppleTv come together
I haven't used it personally, but in demos that I've seen, it looks like Google has done a lot of work on making an interface work in very limited space for Glass. I wouldn't be surprised to see them basically transfer that card interface straight to the watch.
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).

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.

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.
