Interesting conception of cowardly and being stabbed in the back you have.  This is a public accessible forum directly linked to the site that you write for.  You're not being stabbed in the back.  If you're being stabbed at all (you've not) it's from the front. You really need to work on your approach to criticism Dan.  Have a little grace.
Huh?  What components?  There's only the strap and the watch unit, unless you're foreseeing some sort of charm bracelet of electronics.   ...   Now there's an idea!
Obviously the development team do, and I'm sure they're concentrating on their assigned tasks.  Never claimed otherwise, so your lists of sillies is just a silly list.  What relevance does that have to your claim that Apple, meaning the company and it's processes, are not aware of any issues when they put out a "no known issues" release?  The development team may not know of any issues, but if that's true then Apple need better communication lines between their bug report...
While that's a funny call back, you can't use it as a ready baked answer for Apple entering any conceivable industry.  Apple had no evident experience in mobile computing when Ed Colligan made those comments (apart from the Newton, which was actually pretty good, though didn't sell amazingly - Ed forgot about that), but Apple do have form with pliable materials, and as mentioned, their cables seem to fray at an above average rate, and I've lost track of the pairs of...
I'm not sure you grasped the real point of what he was saying.
 You're flipping between talking about Apple and Apple's core OS development team.
Sure, but the speak to text part could feasibly be on-device, and then the comprehension engine could deal with local actions, such as "play music", "send an iMessage", "open app" etc, without recourse to the internet.
Aside from the fact that you've just made up a bunch of functionality to justify the conclusion, none of those things make the watch strap key.  And beyond that, the watch strap being a pliable piece of material that would take some punishment means that Apple shouldn't embed critical components in it or make it a necessary part of the watch structure, it introduces vulnerability, as well as the truth that Apple just aren't very good at that sort of thing, their cables...
In previous previews the dark mode affected in-app controls.  It was hidden at the time, but set an expectation. http://www.cultofmac.com/282685/enabling-yosemites-hidden-dark-mode-feature/
Are you suggesting that when Apple ship a preview with "no known issues" that their Radar backlog is totally clear?  Because that's demonstrably untrue. Many developers have many issues with Apple's responsiveness to bug reporting.
