Apple Asks Selected Developers to Finish Apple Watch Apps By Mid-February
Although the long-anticipated Apple Watch is expected to hit the store shelves no sooner than in April, Apple has already asked several developers to finish their apps by mid-February. For example, one of the biggest Apple Pay partners has been recently notified that he should finish its Apple Watch-compatible application by February, 12th.
While it is obvious that not all app developers have been prompted to develop, test and submit apps in the aforementioned timeframe, we can assume that those of the highest popularity and importance for the guys from Cupertino or customers have been. That is not strange as Apple needs to make sure all the applications work correctly on the wearable device.

According to a source that spoke to MacRumors, Apple has asked one of its biggest Apple Pay partners to prepare an iOS application with WatchKit support that's ready to launch in the App Store by February 12.
