    How ****** is the Apple watch?
    Does it not live up to the hype? This thread is only for the negative reactions people might have to their watch. Now that it is released.

    Tell us your negative feedback. No appraisal here.

    Not really negative but coming from a pebble I was expecting for my mind to be blown. I haven't had that yet....

    Do you own one OP? Be good for you to give us feedback also?

    I'm giving myself a week to evaluate it, and come to a conclusion.

    I've discovered that the default apps already on the Watch are sending me alerts on my watch, but not the third party apps I've downloaded.

    Not near as excited about the watch as when I ordered it. My main worry is I do not like to wear my watch tight on my wrist and from what I have read here, that will be trouble. Got a couple of weeks to decide and I am still reading.

    Just wondering how useful the watch really is for $1000.

    Wrist detection thinks you took the watch off and will bug you for the passcode.

    I don't wear it tight and have no problems.
    I can poke my finger between band and wrist.

    Do you have passcode enabled?

    Yes. When I put it of my arm the watch is locked. I don't have problems so far since Friday with wrist detection.

    There MUST be a way to secure CC access if you want to use it. On your iPhone you must press the Home Button (Finger Print ID) so just do this to unlock your :apple:Watch and same effort. I have only used the passcode once. I find unlocking using my iPhone more convenient.

    It's only the starting point for Apple, nothing news worthy about that. Disappointed would be if they didn't build one. Shortcomings and bugs are a normal part of being an early adopter.

    Want a good Apple Watch?

    Buy the next model and avoid the risk of low resale and wasting time with this one. Simple.

    Not sure where people are getting this, other than the horrific USA Today day 2 "review." Mine is loose enough to slide around on my arm/wrist and I have no issues with the passcode needing to be re-entered or the heart rate sensor working.

    Well, you've got to decide then:

    Loose fitting watch, no Apple Pay
    Tight fitting watch, Apple Pay

    I owned a Pebble and I cant imagine how any Pebble owner can claim there is any comparison at all. Besides battery life, the AW is far superior (and battery life ain't too bad.)

    My only disappointment is buggy/laggy third party apps. Loving the notifications at the moment.

    I wear it pretty loose until I workout, then I tighten a notch.

    If you are looking at this as a watch replacement you will be very satisfied. If you are looking at it as an iPhone replacement, you will be disappointed.

    I am disappointed that I cannot take or make FaceTime audio calls on my watch.

    Similarly, I am sad that I cannot use iTunes match to stream to my watch when exercising. However, I guess that would be a big battery drain issue.

    Other than that, I'm really happy with the watch.
