I tend to agree with you, however, this is all specious reasoning. Obviously the watch did not exist except in concepts three years ago, so the lab was obviously testing other things at that time, that or sitting empty waiting for the first watch prototypes ...
You're probably right ... aside from just holding it, unless it's paired to a phone that does something meaningful for you, it really is only half utilized. Im sure it's not hard to un-pair it either.  What's interesting is that Apple is not staffing the "stores" with geniuses. I have to imagine that even if these are store employees, Apple has hand picked them and trained them. That in my mind is the only wild card here. And since someone pointed out that Selfridges sells...
Do we know that? I feel like this lab has been around for a while, and when Apple first offered Nike+ on the iPhone, similar tests would have likely occurred. 
Right, because previous product releases have shown Apple's customers are reasonable like that. /s
Why do you say these are feminine styles? I've seen tan watch bands on a man's watch before. And I see guys in the gym with neon pink workout gear. I'm not saying these particular styles don't appeal more toward women, but they're fairly gender neutral.
We're trained now, the battery life is better, and Apple has steadily improved software power management. I suspect a brand new iPhone user might get a little excited and despite all these things, still have a steep learning curve with power management.  The watch is a whole new animal, which is likely going to have significant issues with battery life once it hits the street and people load it up with all these cool apps, and things it can do. So unlike people who use an...
I have to say that picture she took of the watch does it no favors. It looks like a plastic kids watch. This is definitely a case of needing to see that jellyfish screen in person.      Fascinating to see the bands in action. It looks like there's a metal plug in the center where the latch button is. Unlike a lightning connector, I'm assuming they will only attach one way.
I would agree. However, the closest market it falls into is the "collectable" market. As long as it's a sufficiently limited edition, I see there being enough 1 & 2 percenters who are also Apple fans to easily sell out this Edition very quickly. And I wonder what Apple's policy is going to be on it -- Two per customer? Because you know someone is going to try and corner the market on it and scalp them for even more than $17K.  Then in the Fall they'll release their $2500...
I don't think they will put this much engineering into a "free phone". Better to give people a reason to upgrade to the 6C, especially if it also has a 4" screen. If you give someone a "free phone", they might buy a matching Sport watch with the money they saved.
And the more of them you use, the faster the battery will drain. Just like the early iPhones, people are going to have to get used to limiting themselves to just what they need on the watch.
