    Can the watch do FaceTime audio? I can select contacts and make normal phone calls through the watch but I don't see a FaceTime audio option and when someone rang me via FaceTime audio the options on the watch were hang up or answer on phone, rather than the answer on watch option I have with normal calls.

    That is disappointing if there's no FaceTime audio.

    There isn't, its a feature they will probably add with a software update though.

    I got a FT Audio call and had to hand it off to my iPhone.

    I think the reason is they work terribly with bluetooth devices. I have a bluetooth receiver and it's useless with FaceTime, the audio is too low. It only seems to work good with regular phone calls.

    It's a bit funny that it's not supported. I can understand that with the watch acting like a bluetooth speakerphone the quality will be degraded. But I use FaceTime Audio calls all the time on bluetooth connections (usually in the car).

    It's annoying. You can only ask Siri to facetime audio someone and then pickup the request via handoff on your iPhone.

    I'm really surprised it isn't there, and I would have thought the lack of it was something reviewers would have mentioned. I'm hoping it's something they can add in software for 1.1.
