Mark Gurman, 9to5Mac, has posted a memo in which Tim Cooks states that more than one thousand Apple Watch apps were submitted in just four days. The memo also says that Apple employees get a 50% discount on any Apple Watch or Apple Watch Sport for personal use. That's unusual, as my understanding is that there is typically no employee discount on major new products.
Full memo in Mark's post.
Update: Mark is now saying that Apple's can also receive a $550 discount on the gold Apple Watch Edition.
