    Hopefully I'll be getting my Apple Watch soon. I wondered: when people notice your Watch and ask questions, what are the things that you demo which provide maximum wowness :D

    I see the Digital Touch features as a bit... 'gimmicky' - so not sure if that will be one of the things I show off.

    So... what do you all demo to show off your Apple Watch?

    I haven't shown anyone Digital Touch. Usually I show them Siri and the fitness rings/app.

    Cool - I did wonder if Siri would be a good feature to show as, whenever I used to demo Siri on my iPhone, I'd get varying results. In fact Siri always seemed to say "I can't answer that right now..." whenever I tried to show her off! :eek:

    From what I've read on here, though, Siri seems to work well on the Apple Watch, so that's a good one.

    Anything else?

    Siri has worked very consistently for me on the watch, as long as you make sure that the screen is awake when you say Hey Siri.

    The camera remote feature is very nice, I did show that off a few times.

    Just double click that button on the side, when it shows your card pop up for apple pay, they lose their minds. Trust me

    Unfortunately I'm based in the UK - and we don't have Apple Pay over here yet. Good tip for Apple Watch users in locations where it is supported, tho :)

    If I'm really trying to show someone I'll have them put on the watch and send me a text. Then I'll show then dictation and heartbeat.

    And finally, of course, I'll show them Mickey

    My demo, because I dropped the SS with Milanese Loop watch while trying to put it on.

    Everyone watching gasped, but all was OK, no damage to the watch.

    I was really impressed by the heart beat.

    I don't understand how. NFC has been around for a while.

    That doesn't do anything on my watch.
