The one thing that really has me worried is something Nilay Patel wrote in his review; he even opened with it: He then says Apple promises this is fixable with future software updates, and I hope he's right. But this is the kind of thing that would drive me nuts. It's actually got me worried enough that I think I will not be joining the pre-order phase until I get to actually play with one in person. I'm even more worried because apparently even in the upcoming Apple Store try-on appointments, you will not get to use the watch interface. It will be loaded with a demo video so you can't really experience these bits and decide for yourself if they are too slow. To me, this is confirms that they aren't really ready yet. I *hope* it is just software, but if they are trying to do things that the CPU is just not capable of handling yet, we may see a hardware update in v2 and it will be sad if the first versions of the watch end up being left behind (or just stuck operating more slowly) because it really depends on the CPU itself being upgraded. Anyway, hopefully my concerns are unfounded, but I think I will sit out the pre-order launch and wait until a few more devices are out in the real world with updated software.
