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

No, the watch is not a citrix client.

Pebble had a problem and had to warn developers after watchmakers got upset about people making faces that aped Cartier, Rolex, Omega etc and even had the logos on them. They can't really stop it except on their own store, but as Pebble developers can write apps that run on the watch and load them without any checking or signing they can do what they like.

I guess Apple could head these off at the App store, but it would be a whole heap of more work for them.
