    Wow.... what a hit-piece..... it's NOT a 'little known feature' - it's a feature that Apple talked about, and something totally NORMAL. I love how this is meant for click-bait to 'scare' people into not buying the Apple Watch.

    The Scary ‘Apple Watch’ Feature No One Is Talking About

    Apple’s new Apple Watch has lots of cool features, and one frightening one that could be used to spy on you.

    The guy in the video states 'There's a scary feature on the Apple watch that no-one seems to be talking about....' and then shows a video clop of James Bond using a video camera to look at a girl's boobs.... and mentioning 'spy watches', but James Bond is NOT using a 'spy watch' in this case.

    It's simply monitoring the iPhone camera through the Apple Watch..... this is nothing NEW with the watch - it could always have been done with 2 Apple iPhones through FaceTime. (Just call one from the other, and hide the 2nd one). Or ANY phone from ANY manufacturer using Skype.

    Wow. Way to try to invent a controversy! This is simply meant for someone to have a knee-jerk reaction to this, and then 'OMG! I'll save the children! Apple Watches should be banned in high schools'

    not sure what was the scary thing because that was nothing new. it's not the watch but the phone and the phone can do the same already without the watch...
