When Tim Cook first unveiled the Apple Watch this past September, nailing down a release date for the device quickly became a murky mess. At first, all we heard was that the device would launch in early 2015. This, of course, provided no particular guidance as the launch window could have been anywhere from January to June.
Then the rumor mill got to work. First we heard reports that Apple was aiming to launch the device in early February. Once that came and went, we started hearing rumblings about a launch in early March. Then, finally, Apple finally put all rumors to rest when it announced a release date of April 24 at its second Apple Watch event
