Although many believe that the Apple Watch was the first product conceived and released under Tim Cook, Steve Jobs was apparently aware of the device, reports Fortune.

Wired's Secret History of the Apple Watch says, "Ive began dreaming about an Apple watch just after CEO Steve Jobs’ death in October 2011 ... This was to be the next step in a dynasty—the first without the guidance of Steve Jobs."

Creative Strategies' Tim Bajarin, who had an on-and-off relationship with Jobs dating back 35 years, disagrees.

“Steve was aware of the Watch,” Bajarin told an audience of analysts, developers, and venture capitalists Thursday at Glance, an Apple Watch conference in San Francisco. “He didn’t nix it as a product.”

Do you think Steve would have released the Apple Watch in its current iteration? Let us know in the comments!

personally abaout Apple Watch, is not my gadget and will never be a Watch is watch the time for me as main function and for that I don't need to have a gadget which I have to charge everyday. I dont need a gadget in my wrist to tell me what my iPhone already tells or does. redudance information is waste of time. I use a Withings Watch, which looks like a watch, gives my steps, my swimming, my sleeping and the battery is alive since the first day, and now for more than 8 months. that is a watch, does something else useful and we don't have any worry about charging, and looks like a watch :)

What you normally find on the watch is the knob off to the side, the hands of hour and minutes, and any shape that works and is built with them. That's how the Apple Watch is and I'd call it a watch to, but it's more capable than you think. I use it to control my iPhone without the need to pull my iPhone out of my pocket even at the most difficult times to, if your iPhone doesn't have most features like modern ones do, there's Apple Pay for the watch, also who wouldn't want to use it to cheat? Not to mention when it comes to charging, I use my ampy with it. It's basically a wall outlet with you and can infinitely charge your devices as long as you move it. Overall, the watch isn't that bad.

the man is gone and we are still living at glance with his products. Apple did not launch any new product pos-Steve Jobs. even the watch is still is product. the problably only one new idea is the actual revamp Apple TV, which is not new just updated to the actual iOS capacities. to develop a new product and bring it to production and sell it to the end custumer, any company as Apple, needs at minimum 3 to 5 years working in the background laboratories. the watch idea came right after the iPod 6G release, many use it as a watch, from there it was born a Apple team for its development. Apple still doesn't have a new product, a new revamp idea after is master gone, that is a fact. the ideas he left behind are being very well explored and developed to the future, but no new revolutionaries products

It's still an iPod though. It can't be used like a Swiss watch either, but I wouldn't give my hopes up on no revolutionary anything even by what critics are calling products today.
