    Is it now possible to start a call directly on Apple Watch via watchOS's Phone.app and then route the call's audio through an iPhone with connected headphones?

    Just tried it, but it was kinda glitchy. My iPhone showed the call was taking place, but the audio came from the watch until I tapped the green bar at the top of my iPhone, then it went through the earphones but the other person couldn't hear me.

    Great, thanks for confirming. As I understand it, this is the same behaviour found in watchOS 2, albeit a bit buggier due to the in-development nature of watchOS 3?

    Have to say, this was my biggest gripe with watchOS 2 and it baffles me that this isn't in there by default, so I'm disappointed Apple haven't included it in watchOS 3!
