    I thought it would be a good idea to start a thread on things you've learned while playing with the watch. Some of these might be obvious but could help others. Please chime in with anything u have discovered that may help someone else.

    The watch only syncs when charging. I adjusted some weather settings and they wouldn't change on my watch. Finally read that the watch has to be hooked up to charger to sync. I did this and within 2 seconds the changes took effect.

    u might not get notifications if ur phone is unlocked and screen on. I do however get both the watch and phone ringing at the same time, even if I'm using my phone at the time the call comes in.

    I think watching some of the video walkthroughs that apple has on their page would be helpful. The watch face customizations are interesting.

    Oh and you have to go into the activity app to set it up. Just asks basic questions like your age *ahem*, weight, sex, height.

    - Double press secondary button to bring up ApplePay
    - Press and hold on the Watch face to change ...
    - While on watch face you can change the color of you watch face
    - Turn off all the sound notifications to conserve battery
    - Spend time learning the Apple Watch app

    Not a biggie, but from all the pictures, it looks like the charger snapped into position in one orientation (45 degrees?). I just put the charger on mine for the first time, and it's completely free to rotate around the 'axis' of where it's fixed in the center of the watch. (Did this after I just read no syncing without charging!)

    You can ping your iPhone from the far left glance. You can also put your watch into night mode and airplane mode there.
