    I'd rather have something more like this to start, honestly:


    The thing that worried me most about the Apple Watch is Apple's apparent lack of the filter. They used to know how to say no really well, and I don't think they did this time. Hopefully they can make it work, and either way I'm sure that it will be a successful product. But there is something to be said for knowing when to say no.

    You can. Don't download any of the 3rd party apps

    I believe i saw Instagram and Snapchat apps on Tim Cooks Apple Watch during his interview with Charlie Rose. Tim also says something along the lines of "There are some apps on here you probably shouldn't see".

    These apps could just be proof of concept as well...

    The problem with this setup is that the app eco system was never conceived. Now we have a really bad method for storing app icons because it wasn't made for how we use it.

    On the watch, Apple is acknowledging that people will load it with apps. They imagined a typical use case of storing many apps, and designed it from that standpoint.

    #13 Apple's "Remote" app should be the one near the middle. Tim or someone said something about they love being able to control their apple tv from it.

    #7 Mint
    #21 Looks like Honeywell's "Honeywell Lyric".

    Completely agree. This is the case I think where "steve wouldn't have done that"... There is a reason they started this project 3 years ago. Hint, right after steve died. That interface looks like a complete mess. The way you interact with the interface is all over the place. crowns, touch screens, buttons. This is a wait and see product but I would even consider this on the same level as the iPod and iPhone....

    White *tick* is probably a todo list. The Blue with a white play button is the remote app as you say.

    That home screen showing a ton of apps is misleading IMO because I don't think people will be loading that many apps. Perhaps Apple wanted to convey that it will have a rich ecosystem of apps. I hope they kept some secrets for the device launch to surprise us.

    Many of these app icons are likely conceptual. When the Mac App Store was launched, placeholder icons were also used. For example in this image there's "Roll 'em," "Color Studio," "Fast Lane," and "Home Watch," all just placeholders for real apps once the store was live. I'm guessing the misc. icons on the watch are just to prove a concept for now.

    Regarding the Remote app, I wonder if the :apple:Watch is the key to the Home and Entertainment endeavours for Apple?

    "Hey Siri, go to Netflix"
    "Hey Siri, lock all of the doors"

    I think that's exactly what they're planning, and my guess is they're going to use an updated Apple TV as a routing hub for all those commands.

    I don't think that will happen soon. Hey siri only works on the iPhone when plugged in. The battery on the watch probably would not be able to have always listening.
