Why Apple Watch glitch is actually a positive

Much has been made of the report that Apple Watch production was disrupted by a defect with the device's proprietary "taptic" engine.

Visions of the "bendgate" issues in the iPhone 6 have started to crop up as investors worry that maybe Apple's supply chain isn't the best-in-class machine it was thought to be.

The shares were lower in early Thursday trading as any inventory delay caused by this glitch would cost the company sales.

And while the watch may not contribute much to Apple's revenue this year, a seamless rollout would assuage concerns about the tech juggernaut's ability to still create new product categories.

But all this worrying is for nothing, according to one Wall Street analyst.
