You forgot about Poland, Apple Store app has also been updated there and now features the Apple Watch, without stating any specific date, just currently unavailable. However, no changes have been made to the Apple.com/pl site.

And in the iOS app for Polish store finally Watch appeared in the list and all the pages for the Watch are translated, with Polish prices. What's curious is that on the webpage there is still nothing :eek:

This roll out has been weird. It's now officially coming to Denmark, but you have been able to buy it online here since june, and in many big stores since august. I know. Import. But still.

That is just peachy, but Siri will have to start learning Polish stat, since babbling commands to your phone in English in a non english speaking country is bad enough, but the Watch is borderline useless without Siri on board to handle Messages, e-mails and other hands-free usage scenarios that make up the Watch experience.

Yup, that's the main disadvantage why Watch isn't that popular in Poland. However, when it comes to dictation, iOS handles the language nicely but understanding phrases and converting them into commands will be very hard since Polish grammar contains declension and other aspects that are absent in English.

Ireland is part of the UK well at least Northern Island is. I bet the people from the southern parts just drove North to get one :D

The train from Dublin to Belfast leaves you less than 10 minutes walk away from the Apple store. i'd say lots of people have done exactly that :)

Wow that's really late, people are already speculating when the successor will arrive...
The Apple Watch has the CPU/GPU power of an iPad 2. What makes you think there will be any revision coming soon? Even watchOS 2 doesn't tap the full power of the unit yet.
