    I'm at Buybuybaby with the wife and kid. I was washing my hands as the phone and watch alerted me to an incoming call. I lifted my wrist to see it was the mother in law. I used a dry pinky to answer the call. She doesn't have the best hearing but had no issues at all hearing me. It was a pretty awesome real world test scenario where I otherwise would have missed her call. :)

    I'll test later, but anybody know if I could say "answer" to completely hands free answer the call?

    You took a call from your Mother-in-law!? Man of the year.

    Just took my first bathroom call


    That was my first thought.
    Meanwhile the kid is screaming and wife yelling at him to hurry up and the OP is in the crapper playing with his shiny new apple watch.
    LOL

    I took a call on my iPad on the toilet once. It was magical.

    You know that watch is now flagged. Good luck if you need to return it.

    It's probably on the non-wipe hand so it might get an exception.

    You achieved two of my biggest pet peeves...

    Talking on speaker in public
    Talking in public restrooms on a cell phone

    You can use the tip of your nose to tap buttons if needed.

    You have to press a button to answer? You can't speak "answer" or "decline" like on a Bluetooth headset? They need to implement that!

    Yes, the Watch almost always requires two hands to complete tasks. This is undesirable.

    How can you use two hands on a watch? :confused:

    I should clarify, both arms but just one hand. You have to hold up one hand and tap buttons with the other hand, so almost both hands. But as I mentioned earlier, you can touch the screen to the tip of your nose to answer a call without using your other hand.

    Ha! You're braver than I am, I don't think I could answer my phone a public bathroom let alone have a conversation whilst on speaker :eek:
