For me, I love having access to my Philips Hue lights from my wrist. That's incredibly awesome.

Recieved my 38mm sport on Friday as I was leaving town for a conference. So far I love it! I can leave my phone in my purse but still see and reply to messages. I can either reply with a voice message (and wont do this in a conference) or a choice of pre-set replys. I really like that I can see who is calling and either step out of a meeting or ignore without much notice. I have notifications, like Facebook posts, Snap Chats sent to watch and I can only see that I have one. Not sure if there is a way to look at them or just the notice that I received one? I do like the I can read, dismiss or delete an email. Lots to learn and haven't had very much time! I did noticed yesterday that after a full charge on my iPhone 6 plus and watch that after a 15.5 hours on both, my phone had 63% battery left and the watch had 47% battery. BUT its a weekend and I'm not receiving as many emails and texts as I will during the week, so Monday will be a true test to how long the battery will hold up. So far very pleased and have had many people around me remark that its not only a nice looking watch, its pretty handy to not have phone out. AND I love the fitness app so far!

My order for 42mm space black sport watch was processed at 12:09am on preorder kickoff night. My order is still showing as "processing" with a scheduled ship date of mid may. I don't get how my ship date is so far out when I ordered 9 minutes after preorder began?

I relieved mine in Friday as well and it is a very nice looking watch and really like the functions. So far I'm happy with it. Dictation works pretty well with hardly any mistakes. I'm just glad I got the 42mm. I turned off the fitness app and I just have a few notifications on.

I'm really enjoying mine so far. I've noticed a few buggy things here and there but nothing too bad. Nothing that can't be fixed with firmware updates.

I was mostly surprised with the battery in my 42 mm. Got up yesterday at 4am for work and the watch came off the charger. During my 12 hour shift I got loads of notification and responded to many text messages with the dictation feature. when I got home I walked the dog (logged in the excercise app) and still got a lot of notifications throughout the evening.

The watch went back on the charger at 10:30 pm with 27% battery left (usage log showed 18.5 hours stand by and a little over three hours usage). So far I'm impressed.

Congratulations to all who purchased their Apple Watch. I will live the experience through all of you as i give it a few years before I consider purchasing one. I look forward to hearing your likes and dislikes about the Watch.

got my watch on time and I must say I like it. I have come to understand that this isn't a stand alone device as some people think but an extension of the iPhone. The watch isn't bulky at least to me. I ended up with the 42mm space gray with black band sport watch. Battery is pretty good at least for the entire day. I treat it like I would any watch I put it on and forget about. I don't play games with it I just use it for notifications and telling time mainly text and iMessages. And at the end of the day before I place it on the charger it'll be at 38% and that's from 4:30am till 10:00pm
