The Apple Watch will automatically lock when thieves steal it

Even after getting our hands on with the Apple Watch we still have a lot of questions about Apple's first wearable. One of the biggest questions users might have is what happens when a thief get their hands on it?

They won't just be absconding with your $349 (about 215, AU$383) smartwatch, it's also linked to your iTunes account and credit cards though Apple Pay.

Cult of Mac claims users can rest easier because the Apple Watch will automatically lock whenever the user - or in this case, someone else takes off their watch. Supposedly the Apple Watch has sensors on its backside that will detect when it's not being worn and as a security measure locks down the payment options behind a passcode.

Of course, it's possible the wearable thief could also crack your passcode, but there will likely be some sort of "Find my Apple Watch" security measure that allows users to remotely wipe their smartwatch.

Secrets revealed

Apple may have given its first smartwatch a big introduction by even calling it the "one more thing" of the iPhone 6 keynote, but we're still learning much more about the Apple Watch every day.

An Apple spokesperson revealed on September 10 users should expect to recharge their wearable every night.
