    Works perfectly. You can route calls through the AirPods and the battery indicator on the Watch shows the pods' status too.

    They're great BTW.

    I Also learned that you can have AirPods announce who's calling. Go to settings – phone – announce calls.

    Wow.

    Really?

    Have to try this.

    This will replace many assistants. Remember movies that had a secretary announcing who was calling?

    Now I will have an Australian accented assistant to do that.

    Could I answer back?

    That's an iOS 10 feature the iPhone itself will announce as well no Bluetooth headset required.

    I understand your point, hence the suggestion, many others are likely are unaware. It's a work around suggested by the OP without having to look at your iPhone or Watch. Very convenient with driving or what have you.

    I used mine the other day at the gym and left phone behind. Put a playlist of songs on the watch and paired the AirPods. All was good until about 20 minutes in, then they disconnected. I tired several things to get them to reconnect and no dice! Finally I rebooted the watch and they connected again. After that one issue they were fine for the rest of my run which lasted another 50 minutes or so..
