I'm highly skeptical of the first-gen Apple Watch. In fact I can't see myself using a smartwatch unless I could do so without needing my phone whatsoever. Here are some real life examples where I'd love to use a watch only but we just aren't there yet. 1. The Gym/Outdoors. Allow me to keep my smartphone in my car or gym locker. Let me access my music (3rd party apps) via the watch only. Let me receive and make calls via the watch only. Let me respond to email and text via the watch. Give me a keyboard so I'm not forced to use something like Siri only. 2. The Beach. Make it waterproof. Long walks on the beach with your phone in your swim trucks kinda sucks. Let me ditch the phone entirely for a day at the beach. (And give me a decent way of snapping photos?) 3. Bars/Nightclubs. Environments that are loud and filled with people. Can't use voice dictation in a loud area filled with people. Maybe we'll get there one day. But I have almost zero interest in a companion device to my phone which is with me almost 24/7 (because it needs to be).
