Makes sense. As seems the case, by introducing it in advance they can retain the surprise element without worrying about leaks.

Mirroring comments by Re/code last week, Digitimes adds some additional insight to the state of the iWatch production process. The report says that components of the mysterious device are ‘entering production’, but the unit as a whole is still at the engineer verification test stage. The EVT state still allows for late-in-the-cycle changes to design and functionality. Once the iWatch hits PVT (the production verification test stage), parts are finalised and its usually only a couple of months before the device can enter mass production and be released publicly.
