Matthew Achariam:

We got an unknowing first glimpse at the latest design of the Apple Watch more than two years ago. No less, adorned on the wrist of Tim Cook was a stainless steel watch with a bright red crown cap1. Shortly after, I wholly forgot about this seemingly insignificant revelation—chalking it up to the whimsy of a CEO with unlimited resources at his disposal.

Matthew goes on to talk about the symbolism of this red dot in the world of fashion design. What he doesn’t muse further on is the first thing that popped into my head: what was Tim’s watch capable of? Was its only differentiator the fact that it had this red cap, or did it have features like GPS or even LTE that wouldn’t be announced until much later?
