Apple Watch: Magnetic closure!

I'm sure I wasn't the only magician who cracked a big smile when they showed the magnetic fastener on the apple watch...this may well be the easiest watch ever for a watch steal...We should all send Johnny Ive and Tim Cook a thank you note...

The taptic feedback also seems to have a ton of possibilities for remote cuing...

If it sends a "user dead" notification every time its taken off...that's an issue ;)
