"This watch is beginning to cut into [Michael] Kors (KORS), Fossil (FOSL) and Movado (MOV), because those are all expensive watches and those watches are dumb. This is a smart watch," Cramer said, pointing to his Apple Watch.

Cramer noted the Apple Watch's attractive features and functionality, saying, "I've got my email, I've got my contacts...I was speaking to my daughter, she didn't even know" the difference between the sound quality of the Apple Watch and a cellphone.

However, he said he's still keeping his Breitling (BECC) timepiece -- some of which can retail for $6,000 -- for when he "goes out."

At the time of publication, Cramer's Action Alerts PLUS had a position in AAPL.
