    The talk of extending the battery life of the MacBook got me excited that it may be better for the watch than we hoped.

    That's a big plus too!!! Darn, Apple's been doing their homework all this time!!

    And, all day, 18 hours of battery life with a typical day!!

    Will it be like my Samsung Gear S watch where I can leave my phone at home and still get all calls/texts and notifications on the watch?

    They've pretty much stuck with the same features that my Gear S has. If I can leave my phone home and still get all the above on the watch, I will get one.

    the Gear S has it's own sim card, thats why you can receive calls without the phone....the iWatch doesn't have this feature so you'll always need your phone neaarby to receive calls/texts

    Believe me, you will still want your phone with you. I have had the Moto 360 and the Pebble Steel for months and I can see now why I still need my Phone. The watch is for convenience.
