 Secrecy? Perhaps the $5m/leak clause they put in NDAs?
IMO, probably. But only listed as water resistant.

 I'm still at the walking stage (30 years sedentary takes a bit). I've no problems with 'brisk walk', and I'm pretty certain that is what the watch uses. The reason is, at home I have a loop I walk that is exactly one mile. But it has a significant hill on it. If I do a 30-minute walk (with iPhone on hand), it won't record 30 minutes of exercise as it doesn't take into account elevation changes (my heart rate certainly is elevated enough). 30 minutes at the beach last week...

 I've had my watch for 16 days now. And I've been at the Outer Banks on vacation for the last 9. My watch has been recorded 6 30-minute 'other' workouts - 2 in a swimming pool and 4 in the ocean. At no time was that wrist treated differently than my other.

Add swimming to the workout app and I'll be a happy camper.
 Well I haven't slammed mine into a wall yet (having been watch-free for awhile - 30 years? - I'm still aware of it as I move). But it's definitely not bulky.
 I bought the 42mm SS watch Thursday (my wife said to get it over the sport as she said it looked prettier). It's been in the shower a few times, and may visit the ocean later this week (with a bottle of water to clean it off once I get out of the water). For me, the fitness aspects are great. I'm an enterprise software consultant, with a well-deserved nickname (earned back in '82 when I would zone out the world when in front of a VT-100 terminal). I get reminded to stand...
I was responding to your "but notebooks are dead and not coming back" statement. IMO, people heavy into notebooks won't budge from them to an iPad pro.
