    Agree with carrot and fantastical. Along with things and drafts. Both of these are on sale this week as well.

    I didn't think DASH had a complication - just a glance?

    I think complications are very poorly done on the Apple Watch. They need to be live data. Step counts for example on other devices count up as you walk, weather apps should be able to refresh when the screen comes on or, maybe utilise the useless 'friend' button to send a refresh request to all complications.

    Just Press Record

    I love being able to dictate a memo and looking it up later on my iPhone or iPad.

    Totally agree, people's excuse is the battery life, personally it feels like a half baked product, they should have waited another year or teo

    I'm loving my AW but the novelty has definitely worn off.

    Next to no apps.
    Many current apps not bothering with AW integration.
    What is available are painfully slow at loading, even native ones.

    I tend to use mine purely for notifications now.

    Give it a bit longer and I think my original Montblanc watch will come back out of its auto winder.

    (Sorry to go off topic)

    I've even stopped using a watch face with the complications.

    Any fans of Fallout, this is my face of choice:

    Only paid apps have complications that work IMO. For instance I use Things, Waterminder, Carrot. They sync very well with the app on iphone. Also there's Pedometer++ that shows steps/goal as complication. (steps + distance in 1 line complication and goal only in small complication)

    Very good point. The apps that I use the most are carrot, things, drafts and fantastical. They load very fast and almost instant. Especially fast after they are loaded once but the longest you wait is a few seconds. You never wait long for these apps.

    I've heard of some people having trouble in general and never able to figure it out. For me, the apps load fast.

    Check out this thread - It is a collection of apps updated for watchOS 2 - many of them offer complications.
