I thought that, too. But another possibility is that Apple is providing an amalgamation of the thousands of health apps already on the App Store, a bit like Passbook. They provide the software, including for third-party accessories, whilst others provide the hardware. However, in view of Nike's recent shutting up of shop of their hardware department, and also the M7 chip, as well as recent hirings, I'm not so sure.

Something so elegantly designed and implemented that the value of the thing is self-evident.

Stop overgeneralizing for the win.
Haven't you ever seen a Nintendo Gameboy Advance? Color LCDs come in reflective / transflective designs. Backlight is optional. And way faster than color eInk. I also had an early Windows PocketPC (Compaq iPAQ) based on a transflective color LCD.

What is passbook? I remember hearing something about it two years ago, but I don't remember hearing if it actually does a damn thing yet.

I'm young-ish (30) and in great health. Id love it.

I use it pretty much every day and sometimes a couple times a day that I'd say I average more than once per day in my PassBook usage. I wouldn't want to go away before it is an indepixisble time saver and convenience.

If their PeePod fits as uncomfortably as their EarPods then no way.
