    I'm most disappointed by the lift wrist thing to turn watch on, it's finicky, and I'm on my recliner so not standing up and if I lift my wrist.. Nothing

    I notice mine turns on too much. But I was doing things around the house, so....

    Mine is very responsive. Just a slight tilt of the watch towards my face brings up the watch face.

    I ordered the watch and have been using it all day. Surprisingly I love the design of the watch more than I thought I would. I have the 42mm Milanese loop.

    The UI is nice too and better than I thought. The navigation isn't a problem and the glances and notifications are both nice (when notifications work).

    That said I can't help having the feeling of meh...

    The total package is better than I thought but I find myself looking at my wrist and then taking out my phone anyway. The watch is literally just a notification device for me in the four hours I've been using it. Maybe I'll adjust over the next few days but for liking everything more than I thought I'm still having second thoughts.

    I would say mine works a little too much. It will come on while typing on my desktop and also while I am driving.

    Ironically, this watch works best when you are out doing things. just sitting around with it will always appear boring. There isn't enough information displayed on it. It is for a glance. Nothing more.

    I'm gonna give it the weekend but it literally is a notification device only and that part has been finicky for me. Plus if your on your phone you don't get notified on the watch (which makes sense).
