Stephen Colbert Just Made the Apple Watch Instantly Obsolete

It's Our Clip of the Week, Big-Screen Edition

By Published on .

It's been a great week for Apple, but once you watch our Clip of the Week -- the opening segment from Wednesday night's "The Colbert Report" -- you might start to worry a bit about the tech giant's newly announced entry into the wearable-tech space. Because, while Stephen Colbert makes it clear he is completely thrilled about the Apple Watch, he also shows off a competing device, the new Wristpad, that makes the Apple Watch instantly obsolete. (Spoiler: The screen on the Wristpad is much bigger than that on the Apple Watch -- and everyone wants a bigger screen these days, right?)
