    I know this sounds crazy but the actual watch face is my most used and favorite part of the watch.

    This. What a freakin' beautiful display. Every watch face looks great and I can't wait for more.

    Oh and complications, which go hand in hand with the faces.

    I know this may sound silly, but I really like the find phone feature. My phone gets misplaced in another room or in the couch cushions. It is now much quicker to use my watch instead of looking for a computer or iPad.

    Notifications. SOO nice. I just feel a gentle tap on my wrist, look at it and I see what it is. Very simple, very intuitive. No more having to pull out my phone. Perfect companion to the 6 Plus.

    Second would definitely be the Jellyfish Motion face. It's gorgeous. I can't wait for more Watch faces!

    The watch face including complications. Secondly, I love the activity tracker.

    The implementation of Siri and voice control more generally. Being able to dictate text messages to my watch is awesome.

    A close second is the music control. I've dealt with docks and aux cables for too long. My Pebble let me flip songs; the Apple Watch lets me choose by artist and playlist.

    Activity tracker for sure. I love how accurate it is and how rich the interface is. I went for a run today without my iPhone and the watch blew my mind.

    Reacting to the notifications. Coming from a Pebble device that couldn't do any of it, I'm glad I can finally trash emails, respond to texts, etc.

    Right now, favorite feature is either notifications or the activity app. I absolutely LOVE both.

    A few good time saving features, SS 38 WSB, already got used to quickly checking updates and texts without having to get out my 6+ which is a bonus. Battery life is really good. Being able to change watch faces to suit the situation you are in. Weather update on my wrist, controlling my iPhone linked to my Bose speaker to change music, taking phone calls, quickly responding to texts, I feel it's already become part of my routine. Just ordered the classic buckle for a more dressy watch, will look to get link bracelet at some point and cancelled my additional order for 42 SG, as I know this is the right size for me.

    The ease of changing the clock faces definitely tops it for me. Want a chronograph? Set that, maybe set some new complications. Hmm, it's near the end of the day, lets go back to the Motion one, etc. It's pretty simple and fast.

    It would be cool when and if Apple decides to allow third-party clock faces.

    Very close behind would be the taptic engine. Apple nailed it. It's superb, no other words for it.

    Activity/Workout is a heaven for health tracking purposes! The circles in my watch keeps reminding me that I need to workout haha. Great motivational tool.

    The watch display looks so good, it almost looks fake.

    Where to start... On top of what everybody else has said about the watch face, Activity etc (which is all awesome), I think the Force Touch is brilliant. I keep finding myself trying to press my iPhone 6 screen hard to bring up other menus before forgetting it doesn't have Force Touch. Handoff also works like a dream.

    "Hey Siri" to dictate text messages. It would be nice if I could say "send" to send, instead of having to tap it, though.

    Nice to hear this. I'm a watch wearer, love wearing a watch, so this device for me will be mostly about time-telling, but with other useful benefits, limited in number to begin but growing over time as users and developers discover ways to use this lovely new tech.

    Congrats on your watch!
