Apple's first wearable, the Apple Watch, was announced back in September, but the company left plenty disappointed by saying the actual launch of the product would not happen until 2015. The actual launch date is still not clear, but it is expected for April and there were some good reasons why Apple waited. Chief among those was to allow develop interest to grow, a plan that seems to have worked.

The Apple Watch will land with plenty of apps already available, around 100,000 in fact when the device first arrives. That is a staggering number for a niche product on launch, and far more than Google's Android Wear could boast, although Google's launch method was admittedly different. Needless to say, the numbers of apps for the Apple Watch will only increase, so expect that 100,000 figure to be a lot more through the year.
