Apple to devs: Watch out, don't make the Watch into a, well, a watch

Having a different app to tell the time would:

1. stop people from identifying it as an iwatch (bad for apple)

2. drain the battery (bad for the user, then bad for apple with unhappy users and reviews). I'd expect there is some ultra-low-power system for doing this normally

The whole iwatch thing is on pretty shaky ground to start with, so I'm not surprised Apple are trying to prevent problems.
