    Do you think or would like to see Apple release a version of the Apple Watch that doesn't require an iPhone?

    I think it would be quite difficult to shoe horn in the necessary electronics and computing power to make the Apple Watch self sufficient. I think it's unlikely that we'll see an independently operating model anytime soon.

    Don't worry. Samsung will have a similar one in 6 months or so. Or maybe Xiaomi.

    Of course, those will require phones too. You're not going to crowd all those features into a device that size. Not for at least three for four more years, probably longer.
