    OK, so I got the bluetooth headset paired up with the :apple: Watch. Music works fine but why can't I use the headset with the watch to answer a phone call? Am I holding it wrong? Has anyone figured this out?

    Why would you want this? It would just be an unnecessary power drain from both devices. You pair your headset with Both the watch and the phone, then use it to answer calls directly from the phone. As far as I can tell, the only point in pairing the headset to the watch is to listen to music when you are out of range of the phone.

    I haven't figured out a way to do this either. Funny too, as this worked fine on the Pebble. I expect Apple will fix this in an update soon, seems trivial to either add an option to never answer the phone on the watch when a headset is connected, or to simply let us scroll up and select answer on headset.
