    since there isn't really any playback controls on these, do you think the music app on the Apple Watch will get an update that will let the music app stay open (without returning to the watch face) so that you can access playback control quickly?

    Do you guys think it would be useful?
    How likely will they do that?

    It already does.

    Settings>General>Wake Screen. Tick 'While In Session'.

    I also have the Music App complication on the face to quickly open it.

    Yeah I just noticed it will looking thru the settings....but still, I wish we could turn this setting on just for the music app....and it would be sooooooooo cool if there was playback control on the complication...

    I would really love a new audio focused watch face.

    Now with watchOS 3, switching to new watch faces is so easy. Apple should create an audio focused watch face that we can easily swipe to that has clock, track/podcast/audiobook, play/pause/skip, and the crown as volume.

    My solution would be to have the audio screen accessible by swiping up on the watch face and to the left. Then it would be identical to the iPhone and iPad controls. Also, instead of the dial controlling the rarely-used time-travel function of the watch face (IMHO), have it control the volume.

    I had no idea about the "while in session" setting. How perfect!! Thank you

    Very helpful & useful.

    This confirms that the AW and the Airpods are the first two tandem wearables of the future.

    Wondering if goggles are next or a different experience?
