Apple Watch. With Apple logo. And it's a rectangle screen. Square?
Tim Cook is back on stage, clapping himself back to the employees in the room who obviously have worked very hard on this.
It's indeed like the iPod Nano with a big, sexy design upgrade.

Cook: We set out to make the best watch in the world, one that is precise, that's synchronized with an international time standard.
Cook: It's incredibly customizable so you can find one that reflects your personal style and taste.
Interesting to hear Tim talk about the Watch's accuracy as... a watch. Most other smartwatch manufacturers don't even mention that.

Cook: Apple Watch took very deep thinking and out of this came some truly remarkable innovation
There's a crown on the right, and a small button as well. You can twist the crown for some interface elements, press the button to select, presumably.
Cook: One of those was the user interface. As it turns out with every revolutionary product that Apple has created, a breakthrough in user interface was required.
