    Having had the watch for five days, the bugginess is beginning to irritate me.

    Apple makes a big play about how their products "just work". Well, this one doesn't. Top of today's irritation list are glances: they don't reliably update. Sometimes there's a note to say when they last updated; mostly there isn't. There's no way to know how reliable the information they're giving you is. With things like the Pedometer app I use, it's obvious it's not updating if the figure never changes.

    I spent literally an hour this afternoon trying to get the Trainline app to work. Installing, reinstalling, restarting both phone and watch. No luck. Just black screens.

    This is a £500 watch. I expect it to work. Or at least for bugs to be picked up quickly and fixed.

    It's a 1.0 product. If you wanted something that works perfectly, you should have waited a year or two. It doesn't matter how much you beta test - you ALWAYS find more bugs out in the wild than you ever can with a small group of testers.

    There will likely be a .1 update soon - possibly in time for the WWDC in June (I'd imagine they'd want to reveal some new API's by then).

    Since there are still people who pre-ordered who have not received their watches, I'm fine waiting until June or whatever for any iOS updates.

    We could get a 1.1 or 1.01 bug crusher soon (whatever soon is:D).

    It's a 1.0 product! #. This watch has bugs no doubt about that. But just giving this watch a pass just because it's made by Apple is ludicrous. The bugs many people are experiencing are basic functions. If you bought a microwave and it cooked your food most of the time you would return it promptly. I think If Apple crapped a turd and called it a launch some people would buy it. And then try to convince other people how good it smells. #

    If you think this is bad you should go check out the state of every big budget video game release the last couple years. You haven't seen ****.

    This. I'm imaging them announcing an update along with the SDK this June at WWDC.

    Hopefully very soon. It's a bit embarrassing showing friends the watch when nothing works.

    Look everyone is right. It's a 1.0 product. If you are unhappy with it, the. Return it. I got it knowing that it wouldn't be perfect. All the issues are software related. Wait until WWDC.
