    Fill in the blank!

    For me, golfing!! I don't even golf that much (maybe 4-8 times per season) but the watch would be amazing while golfing. Leave your phone in the golf bag and never have to take it out for the entire round, most likely.

    What else ya got?

    When it isn't way overpriced for what most people will actually wind up using it for. Namely, the functions I think people will actually wind up using the most on the apple watch are notification and fitness tracking - but there are already a ton of other MUCH cheaper wrist devices that all ready do those functions perfectly well.

    For example:

    Personally I don't use fitness features and they aren't useful to me. Notifications and other features are. To me the watch isn't overpriced and wouldn't be even if it just offered notifications. Plus those other devices typically don't give the same level of interaction or responses that the :apple:Watch does nor do they integrate as well as it will with an iPhone. The added functionality and far better compatibility and interaction with an iPhone alone is worth the money.

    (But it will already be awesome without it)

    It supports silent alarms (and of course has the battery life to avoid charging every night).

    Got the watch ordered but still need to use the fitness band just for this feature.

    From the reviews I've read, Apple watch has the worst battery life out of all smart watches on the market today.

    A little bit of here and a little bit of there.
    I'm pretty sure it already supports silent alarms, you'll just need to be wearing it (of course).

    I've been thinking about this, and I, too, would love to have week long battery life to support both silent alarms and sleep tracking... However, I don't foresee this ever happening. Battery life in iPad/iPhone has mostly been stable through it's existance (iPhone has gone up some, but for me, even with the 6+ I've never been able to comfortably go for more than a day without charging). As the watch progresses, it'll get more power efficient sure, but it will also get thinner and add capabilities (GPS?) to drain power.

    Without some battery revolution, I can't imagine the watch being able to sustain so much as 2 full days of use (under a regular load, on a consistant, comfortable basis) for many years.

    I think the much more likely scenario would be charging wirelessly (like witricity) where I can be sleeping in bed with the watch on my wrist as it charges. Sure this will slow the charging process, but if the watch takes 2 hours now, I can imagine wireless charging for 6 hours would provide approx a full charge. Another added perk would be that the iPhone would (almost surely) add this capability as well. Although, I suppose recharge time would be more important with iPhone

    I think Apple have thought about a LOT of things ;)

    when I can use it to get my coworker's attention at work. Of course, he would need an Apple Watch too which is impossible since he has an HTC One. :(

    But pretending he did have one, it would be so convenient! Things get very hectic pretty fast where I work, and it would be so nice to just bring up my wrist and do the "tap tap" thing to get his attention and let him know I need some assistance. We could also come up with our own "codes".

    Single tap means I'm going on break/will be unavailable. Double tap means I'm back. Triple tap: need help asap.

    I can dream!
