As reported yesterday, Apple will hold a media event on March 9 in the San Francisco at the Yerba Buena Center for Arts. Apple has sent out invitations to media that say “Spring Forward.” The event is expected to be the official Apple Watch launch event.

The Apple March 9 event will streamed live again on the Apple.com site starting at 10am PDT. Live streaming video requires Apple’s Safari 5.1.10 or later on OS X v10.6.8 or later; Safari on iOS 6.0 or later. Streaming via Apple TV requires 2nd or 3rd generation Apple TV with software 6.2 or later.
It is a good development that Apple is now consistently streaming their media event live. The live blogging of the event has run its course for the most part unless Apple fumbles the streaming again as they did last year during the iPhone 6 live stream. The October iPad event worked fine, which raises hopes that the March 9 event streaming will work well.
Apple will present the Apple Watch with more details than in Fall and will introduce the most impressive Apple Watch apps to put the hype in over drive for the launch of the Apple Watch in April. Apple needs to reveal the date when the Apple Watch will go on sale and the pricing for the more expensive editions. We also expect Apple to announce new developments in iOS and OS X. Of course the event will start with sales stats and update on the success of Apple Pay.
So far most industry observers predict a successful launch for the Apple Watch. Pebble just landed a big success for their new color smartwatch Pebble Time. In just a few days they sold smartwatches worth of more than $10 million. This is about 50,000. This number is awesome for Pebble, but peanuts for Apple. Apple is supposed to have ordered 5 million Apple Watch units for the launch quarter.
