How does this work? If there is a protected wireless network, I do not see how it is possible for an apple watch to connect to it unless you authenticate the watch directly to the network by putting the password into the watch. Does the watch get its own IP address? If so the watch would have to have a MAC address. If you have MAC filtering enabled then I can't see how the watch would be allowed on a network. Is there any information about how the apple watch is connecting over wireless? Developers have you seen anything? I have seen reports of people that have left their phone at home but still get iMessages on their watch when they are away from the phone.
