The company Thursday sent out invitations to an event on March 9 at the Yerba Buena Center for the Arts Theater in San Francisco. The invitations simply say “Spring Forward,” which many are interpreting as a pun on traditional watch technology (or, alternatively, daylight savings time).

Apple first announced the smart watch during a September press conference, then informed attendees it wouldn’t be available until spring. In January, CEO Tim Cook gave an update to say development was progressing “right on schedule.”

As a result, we’ve got only a general idea of what the watch is supposed to do. Cook said the watch will “redefine what people expect from its category,” serving not only as a wrist-mounted communicator, but a health tracker loaded with sensors, too.

Hopefully, Cook will take the March event to answer some of the more pressing concerns about the watch, like whether it really needs to be charged every couple of hours. Constructed with luxury metals like 18k gold, it’s also possible that Apple will announce a fleet of brick-and-mortar stores exclusively for Apple Watches, according to recent reports.

Apple may have eliminated more of the mystery than usual by announcing the watch months before it would become available, but it’s clear consumers still have plenty of questions. Now we only need to wait until March 9 before all is revealed.
