Back in September, Apple officially unveiled its smartwatch line, simply called Apple Watch. Well, that date has finally arrived and now Apple has filled in some of the blanks at its March 9 media event in San Francisco.

What does Apple Watch do?

Here are 5 things the Apple Watch can do.

What can't Apple Watch do?

Here are 3 things the Apple Watch doesn't have:

Battery Life

Apple CEO Tim Cook promised 18 hours of a typical day, and can be charged wirelessly. The current target is reportedly 2.5 hours of "heavy" use or 3.5 hours of "standard" use.

Required Hardware

You will require an iPhone to use the Apple Watch, and Apple has confirmed the device will work with the newly-introduced iPhone 6 and iPhone 6+, as well as the iPhone 5s and iPhone 5c.

Release Date

It'll be available in nine countries on Friday, April 24 with pre-orders beginning on April 10. It'll come to the US, UK, Australia, Canada, China, France, Germany, Hong Kong and Japan, with more countries coming at a later date.
