If Apple intended to leave us wanting more during its announcement of the iPhone 6 devices, it succeeded. The "one more thing" at the end of the presentation was none other than the widely talked about, long-anticipated Apple Watch (not "iWatch," as you might have expected). Alas, the device itself will not be available until early next year. But that gives developers plenty of time to cook up cool applications and integrations for the device using the forthcoming Apple WatchKit. Indeed,the device's greatest features and a true presentation of its capabilities will come from the imaginative and creative minds of the platform's third-party developers — similar to when Apple released the iOS SDK, allowing the community to organically create apps that Apple itself was not even able to predict and imagine.
