    What do you think about languages?
    I speak perfect English but it's not the main language where I live so it's more convenient for me to use other language...
    Do you think the Apple watch will display the language currently set on the iPhone?

    That's seems to be an evidence, no problems on that.

    Let's see.

    The versions with the Milanese Loop woven on specialized Italian machines will be in Italian.

    The versions with the Modern Buckle whose supple Granada leather is produced by a small French tannery established in 1803 will be in French.

    The versions with the Classic Buckle whose leather originates from the renowned ECCO tannery in the Netherlands will be in Dutch.

    The Edition models that Jony Ive claims to have Switzerland scared stiff will be in German, French, Italian or Romansh depending on the model.

    Weird. The UAE Apple site lists the watch as a tab on the top of its website but it's not on the Israeli Apple site.

    Well, I thought it was funny, but perhaps you needed to be a linguistic nerd to appreciate that joke. :cool:

    Apple is about to add several new languages for Siri, which - I believe - is closely related to the relative imminence of the Watch.

    And yes, I expect on-screen text on the Watch to match the setting of your linked iPhone.

    As mentioned it will be set to the language you have on your phone. On another note. I was a little worried that Siri is not available in Swedish since I plan on buying the watch. So the news about iOS 8.3 having new languages was quite awesome. I'm ready Apple.

    I'm sure you can buy an Apple Watch from abroad to use at your home country.

    According to another user the only languages that are available is the ones in the pictures.

    According to another user who chatted with Apple support they said that every language that is available in IOS 8.3 will also be available on the watch. It might have something to do with which language you have your phone set to?
