I wonder if the watch has the same water damage telltales that the iPhone does?
Hey, careful what you say about Marmite there! Brilliant new folding plug design, although ouch, you do pay for the privilege. 
And the photo conveniently shows it without any cables, making the stand look tidier than it will be in actual use. Why one earth didn't they incorporate the iPhone's Lightning cable in the slot for a stand-up arrangement?   This thing is a fail in so many ways.
About normal for tech products today. We bought a new TV a few weeks ago, and the first thing it did after I connected it to the net was prompt me to perform a firmware update. There's always pipeline inventory that's going to need software updates after delivery.
