I've been ripped apart multiple times on /r/applewatch for asking this question. What is the benefit of having an always-on screen? You can't see the screen when your arm is at your side. Do they want other people to notice their pretty Apple Watch watch face or something? I feel like if Apple made the wrist detection a little more reliable that would be great, because in my mind raising your wrist to view the time is perfectly natural. Perhaps this would also be interesting if I made this into a poll..
