Why not allow the companion app to be unlocked early?

    So the companion app has been bugging me. It sits there waiting for me to pair an Apple Watch before I can change any settings. Wouldn't it be great if we could set all of our preferences now, and then have them apply the moment we get the watch? Seems like this would be a better out of box user experience overall.

    Yeah, I kinda hear what you are saying. But on the other hand, I can guess at a few reasons why Apple leaves that for Watch owners only. A little 'Club members only, please' and a little "We don't want to let people so far in we have to provide support to tell them there's nothing there for you (unless you have a Watch)" And yes, I can hear other folks saying 'Why do I have to have it it if I never need to use it?' I dunno, that's life I guess. Maybe one day you will ;)

    Yes, but I will have a watch sometime between 4/24-5/8. As of today I've paid for that watch. I'm in the club - I'd like to be able to unbox, pair and go; preferences already set.

    I didn't ask when it would be available, I asked why wouldn't Apple let me access it to prep for my watch now.
