Don't worry.  When the Apple Watch battery dies halfway through the day, they'll go back to doing Facebook on their iPhone.  All these apps can be done better on the iPhone anyway.  Let the nerds buy the watch.  The smart ones know they do not need a device that duplicates another one.  They'll look funny shaking their wrists trying to wake it up just to see the time.
Three years too late.  Apple Maps is still inaccurate.  So many streets are incorrect in Los Angeles.  Remember, Scott Forstall got his ass fired because of this mistake.  The desktop version does not even allow you to select an alternate route, something so basic, but omitted by Apple.
According to the article, 2.3M watches have NOT been pre-ordered.  That was the crazy analyst's ESTIMATE of what he thinks might sell.  Big difference.  The 957K figure is reported everywhere but here.  Go figure. https://screen.yahoo.com/957k-apple-watches-sold-over-181924635.html
The demo watches are not paired to an iPhone.  They are special watches that only work in a demo mode.  That is why there was no lag when you played with it.  I played with one too.  The screen is pretty small for navigating the tiny icons.  Reading text on the small screen for any notification was not really a good experience.  Who knows what it would look like in bright sun light, something an iPhone and iPad have never been good at.  They all look nice in the store...
 Apple did 957K pre-orders for the Apple Watch during the launch.  Apple sold one million iPhones in 2 1/2 months, more if you add an extra two weeks for your 3 month example.  How is 957K three-times more than one million?
All other sources confirm only 957K pre-orders in the U.S., not a million.
This is not an Apple enthusiast site, it is an Apple RUMOR site.
Teenagers buying Apple products?  That is a joke.  They beg their parents to buy them Apple products.  Parents buy the iPhone and pay for the monthly plan.  Same is true for buying them a Mac.  Teenagers won't be wearing an Apple Watch because their parents are smart enough not to buy one for them, unless they are spoiled brats.
Photos for OS X is missing one key feature.  You can no longer drag and drop photos from an SD card accessed in Photos into an album.  Apparently, Apple believes everyone takes pictures with their iPhones and uploads to the cloud, so they decided to remove drag and drop from Photos for OS X.  And they call that photo management?  It is no surprise that Apple's latest re-write of a program comes with features stripped out of it.  Final Cut X, iWork apps, iMovie, etc. all...
Not many people want their personal documents or photos in the cloud on some server.  No one wants to rely on an internet connection to see their files.  No one wants to pay Apple's ridiculous prices for monthly cloud storage when it can be free on their local devices.  It is a stupid move.  Most people have a photo library that far exceeds Apple's free storage of 5GB.  No one has the time to upload hundreds of GBs of data, wasting bandwidth.  But I guess teenagers think...
