I played around with the demo station at an apple store today. I like the glances feature but it seems like the swipe up gesture only works from the watch face? Not from the home/app screen or when actually using an app? I kept wanting to pull up glances from any screen like turning on the control panel on an iPhone. I didn't play around with the Notifications as much (swipe down). Do you need to be on the watch face to pull down notifications? Overall I like the watch and have preordered it but the UI seemed like it had a few extra button presses/swipes, etc. to move around. I know some of this is learning curve with a small device where trade-offs had to be made. So it seems like you have to press the digital crown and then swipe up/down and that there were more taps/presses/swipes than felt intuitive. I need to go try it again as I just spent a few minutes with it, maybe I missed something with the UI.
