    I found that if you add yourself to the friends menu you can send yourself digital touches! Its really nice to be able to try digital touch at least. You do get some error messages though. Oh well.

    I made a video on it too, if you want to watch :) https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=_HG5nDsNBFs

    Could you post some photos of it on your wrist and what size is your wrist?
    Thanks :D
    I ordered the 38mm, however I'm afraid it might be too small now lol

    How do you get your own contact in the friends menu? I can add my own contact to the favourites list but it still doesn't show up on the watch. Even when I add my number under a different name it's still ignored.

    Thanks for the tip. I wouldn't have been able to try these out otherwise. Honestly, I'm not sure I see the appeal though. I mean, it's cute and sort of cool, but not something I would make such a big deal about in promoting the watch.

    This works for me and I don't get any error messages. A few seconds after I send a sketch/tap/heartbeat it echoes back to me. It nice to be able to see and feel the effect if you don't know anyone with an apple watch to try digital touch on.

    The heartbeat is not actually your own. Its just a standard pulse. I cant believe it. I just tested it by taking the watch off.

    That's right. Kids in the USA are very influential over their parents. Apple knows how to get those kids whipped up into a buying frenzy. It's just one more way Apple has proven how powerful of a force they are.

    I believe it, lots of what SIRI Says is programmed in by Apple to trick people into thinking its smarter than it is. To entertain the easily amused. Apple is good at that.

    It may just be the last recorded heart rate.

    It reads the pulse from your fingers as well as the heart rate monitor (according to the apple store employee).

    This is how it does it even though it's not attached to your wrist. That's how the demos were able to send heart rate.

    I had it on a table and it was still doing it. I am going to go to the gym tonight to do a sprint test. If I get my heart rate right up high then record it then send it to myself.

    But I am having problems with mine anyway. I think my heart rate monitor is faulty. It keeps auto pausing during a workout.
