Can I use the basic watch function of my new watch without syncing it to an iPhone. I will get my watch on Wednesday but not get my new iPhone until Friday and want to use it just as a watch until my phone arrives..........is that possible?

You have to pair the watch with an iPhone first before you can do anything with it including just telling the time.

Just sync to a friend or a demo phone in the apple store , then turn on airplane mode on the watch...that way if you use a friend , you wont get his notifications.
