Re: Apple Watch thefts...
@Thomas but if the thief has a blade of some sort, he can probably cut through the straps of the leather models and either do it stealthily or also threaten the person with the same blade to get away with the watch.

Apple Watch thefts...
...differ from phone thefts. Phones can be grabbed from one's hand and the thief can attempt a quick getaway. A watch theft requires confrontation and a threat or actual force for removal. Very different scenarios.
