    I know I can cover my Watch with my hand to turn off the screen; will pulling down my sleeve have the same effect?

    I'm sure the Apple Watch will have a fairly aggressive auto-screen off timer built in.

    Probably not much more than 5 or 6 seconds, so it doesn't really matter.

    The screen will be off until you raise your arm up to view. Auto off from demos seem to be in the 1-3 second mark for when it gets lowered again.

    Probably. It's probably a proximity sensor.
