    Fully hands-free messages, i.e., not having to physically press send after dictating a message to Siri.

    +1 on longer screen times, but honestly, the above is the biggest request for me.

    world clock settings as part of the apple watch app on Iphone. Having to go into the iphone clock app makes less sense to me.

    Siri on speaker instead of just text.

    More activities added to the workout app (such as yoga).

    This. All of this.

    Also, improved speed when communicating with/to the phone. Not just in third party apps.

    I am shocked there is no podcast app. Maybe I'm the only one, but when I work out or do just about anything I always listen to podcasts. APPLE YOU ARE THE BIGGEST PODCAST AGGRAGATOR! WHERE ID THE PODCAST APP??

    ----------

    Oh also why can't I send a tweet from my watch? I call up Siri and tell her to tweet, and she responds that she can only tweet from my iPhone and suggested handoff

    I think you can achieve the first request by going into the messages settings in the Apple Watch Companion app. There is a setting to say "always" send as text/dictation or always as voice. If you choose one I think the message sends when complete/confirmed without being asked.

    Definitely! Hopefully this opens up to third parties.. I am sure it will, they are going on and on about it being a personal device, so I am sure that is part of the plan

    Not working for me, I'm afraid.

    Tip of the nose sending it is...! Thanks for the suggestion, though.

    Totally agree with all of these.

    Plus it'd be nice to expand the Remote App so i can change playlist etc, unless it already can and i just don't know how to do it.

    Also, play stuff on the internal speaker, music, an audiobook etc.

    I wish it would automatically send calls to plugged in headphones similar to how it works with Bluetooth.

    I thought the haptic feedback was very strong. I got a call on my phone and I was quite surprised about how strong it was.

    VIP notifications/custom haptic. I have special vibrations set up on the phone for certain people. It would be great to have some sort of version on this on the AW. As it is, I get notified for all emails for an account and/all VIPs.
