Hmmm...perhaps.But I don't recall it working that way with the first iPads or iPhones.
I'll set my watch to it...oh, wait...
Yes, profits are great, and very healthy for a company.But marketshare still matters - the clout attendant with being a widely used,deeply penetrating "format" is a potentially powerful luxury that Apple survived for a long time without,but I bet they're pretty glad to have it - and to have it growing - now.(And there are a lot of related benefits and conveniences for their users, too.)
I wonder whether it's more accurate to assume that watches were initially round because sundials were round first?I don't know that anyone ever engineered a square or rectangular sundial,but once these became portable - especially in the form of wristwatches - numerous examples of angular design appeared.
Wow!  And, whatever the Chinese is for "bravo". ...Just think what they could do if the Chinese government promoted a more level playing field. 
I know you enjoy raving away without really trying too hard to see other people's viewpoints...but at leastthe first sentence above seems a lot like what I and others have said...perhaps what we have here is"a distinction without a difference"? But, WTF guy!  Try combining both elements of my comment before going off. Besides, it's not much fun having a personal, sentimental comment blithely derided,but I guess I've come to the right place for that... Meanwhile, Tim Cook...
"...Apple Watch underwent many iterations and refinements before..."   So now, when seen wearing it, you really will be able to say, "What, this old thing?"
I had an old friend - the one who introduced me to Apple products in about 1991 or so (he brought over a Newton) -who tried to make this same point...the way he put it, describing problems Apple was having, was something like,"Apple needs to get hit on the head a few more times before they realize they aren't a hardware company..." Then they brought out the iMac...then the iPod...then the iPhone...then the iPAD...(soon the Watch)...Then my old friend died, but, he lived...
poor guy...he'll never be asked to write for the WSJ...
Samsung seems to require competitors, in order to have some idea of what to emulate and build...It never seems to me that Apple needs to have competition to "push" it towards improvements, innovations, or quality.So I'm not sure we'd suffer that much if Apple were the "only supplier"...(but God help us if almost any other company were).
