Looks cool but I bet it will roll around your wrist and get annoying. It needs to be redesigned.

This makes the assumption that this is even REMOTELY true..which it isn't..

My guess is that if Apple were to even create some sort of a watch..it would be more like LunaTik..except that the watch would fully encapsulate a iPod Nano-size device..

There's no way they would develop such a clumsy design like that!

It would only be worthwhile if it was like a Citizen's Ecodrive watch with a built in solar charger. There's no way I'd buy a watch if I had to charge it several times a week. Changing the battery on my current watch once every few years is annoying enough.

Agreed. One size fits all? If your wrist is not the right size, they don't want you as a customer??

I think I would laugh out loud and ride my friends incessantly if any one of them wore something like that publicly. That thing is ridiculous looking on anyone other than a clown, looks easy to break, appears clunky, would probably be tough to "fit" to one's wrist properly and probably isn't sufficiently water/shockproof for anyone who labors for a living or as a hobby. I think the iWatch is a bogus rumor anyhow and don't believe Apple has interest in developing a "watch" when their smartphones largely obviated the need for wrist-mounted watches for many people. But, hey, that's just me and I still wear a Tag I got when I graduated from college over 2 decades ago.
