    So after this whole waiting game is over, you've received your new Apple Watch and shown it off, you've had it for a few weeks and have just accepted it as part of your life without even realising how much you depend on it.

    What feature will it bring that you see yourself not being able to do without?

    (Let's leave 'checking the time' out as it's pretty obvious)

    Checking notifications is #1.

    Other than that I'm really excited about using Hey Siri just by raising my wrist. Didn't even consider than function before preordering but I definitely am excited for it.

    I keep thinking between glances and always on Siri as my most useful features for me.

    Check texts/calendar notifications and weather without taking my phone out of my purse. Possibly answering calls

    I'm really looking forward to using digital touch for subtle same-room communication. Gone are the days of texting my wife to tell her I think it's time we left my in-laws house. I can tell her before we even go in "if you feel three taps, that means wrap it up"

    Checking the time and heart rate.

    Being able to easily check my heart rate will give me a new insight into my health and fitness I do not currently have.

    My resting heart rate is under 60 bpm, I was very nervous for an exam and took my heart rate it was over twice my resting heart rate. It will be cool to see things like that.

    ----------

    Calendar notifications will also be nice.

    I'm looking forward to not holding my phone in my hand when I'm waiting for a text, I often miss notifications with my phone in my purse.

    Given the understated discussion that prevails on the forum, I hope you don't mind my downplaying what I think the watch can do.

    For me, the most-used feature will be the sense of eternal peace and everlasting harmony I will receive in bonding with my Apple Watch. While many of you see this as just a utility, and appliance, I see the watch as much more: the key to the meaning of life.

    The expansion of consciousness that the Apple watch provides, the seamless interface between my individual soul and the wider human zeitgeist that comes from the first true bionic mass-market network interface, is clearly a major step on the journey to human nirvana, as first revealed to the Buddha.

    Carl Spackler had to wait on his deathbead to have total consciousness revealed to him; how lucky am I to achieve this state by partnering with my Apple Watch?

    Texts, calls, weather, and sport scores all on my wrist. I do a ton of walking at my job, so I'm also excited to see how that translates with the fitness tracking in the watch.

    Of course, I'm probably MOST excited for the timepiece aspect of it, and customizing my watch faces!

    I am looking forward to not having to take my iPhone outside to the potty yard every time I let the dogs out! I can't tell you how many important calls or texts seem to arrive in that five minute window seven times a day! :cool:

    1- Checking the time.
    2- Responding to messages with dictation. I hope it works as well as they have displayed it.

    Using the timer on the watch is a big thing for me. Hey Siri is going to be really useful as well.

    I'm a huge ToDoist user. I use the location reminders frequently.

    For example, If I have a list of things to buy/do before going home from work, I usually set the location reminder for this task at the freeway exit near my house. This way, once I exit the freeway I get an alert on my phone of things to do before going home.


    Didn't realize how useful this app would be till I started using it. Having the notifications on my wrist will make this even better because there are times I've missed the alerts because of music playing in the car.

    I don't plan on ever talking to my watch. Except maybe in the first hour. I've not ever used Siri for real either. I used it in the beginning to try and say funny things, but that's about it.

    Inductive charging.

    Dammit! My :apple:WATCH is dying again! Time to charge it back up!

    LOL
