Apple unveiled its first wristwatch, along with the iPhone 6 and iPhone 6 Plus, during a media event near its headquarters in Cupertino, California, on Tuesday. The presentations for its next-generation smartphone included graphics and video, giving developers enough detailed information to write apps, Cramer said on "Squawk on the Street."

"You know they had a demonstration of the actual watch. But that one is getting harder to find more details and data about what can be written, and that's all I'm saying," he said. "I think it's going to be a big hit, too. But I just want to beyou know, they did have a demo, but mostly that presentation was graphics. That's important."
