From the day that Jobs introduced the Mac in 1984, I have purchased virtually every model since. (And that goes for virtually every other  Apple product, particularly after Jobs'/Apple's keynote introductions.)    And from that first launch day in January, 1984, it wasn't the initial hardware that cost me the most, but all the peripherals, software, and books/manuals/training materials, etc., as well as all the time involved in their purchase/learning/use since to...
Reviewing your past posts, I would contend that hate is a commonly featured in your vocabulary. Next to complaining.Likewise. 
  @ Cyberzombie     Thanks for the clarification. Otherwise, some would think that Apple is in the petroleum business
 Then there is Steve Jobs, who more than anyone else, learned the hard way about 'not protecting yourself'. As we have seen with the introduction of the iPhone, there is probably not an idea that Apple attempts to innovate that Patent Pending is one of the first things on their list of to do's. And if anyone here thinks that Apple has not considered in virtually everything else that their innovations could be applied to, best you do more homework before you speak.
 [1] I don't have the slightest such scenario. I fully believe the Watch will sell in the millions. But like all my watches, (some over $5,000), I don't wear any of them in the shower even tho most are classified as water resistant. [2] I too don't believe that a steamy shower will push the envelope. However, there is a point of continuous resistance. And putting any watch under extreme conditions routinely just can't help but speed up the deterioration of the seals or...
1) So we are in general agreement. 2) At what temperature?  I doubt that Apple will go as far as "You can wear your Watch in the shower." The issue in such a case is not just getting the Watch wet, it is the water pressure as you indicated, but even temperature that can significantly affect the resistance. As well, how can one prove that they didn't exceed the specs, and at the sales volume that has been projected what, where and how much does Apple set aside monies to...
 1) Far from 100% assurance2) Correct. However, it is Apple that will define whether or not their product was used in accordance to their guidelines. And just how many Watches will be rejected because there is no means to determine conclusively that the user did or did not do exactly as they described.
Well, according to the DeLoach article, your Rolex should will tell you how water resistant it is. As for you never taking off your Rolex, I see no evidence to date that assures me 100% that the Watch will have the same water resistance. And even if it did, I wouldn't attempt to test it as such: I have seen enough things crash and die, (even boats), when they get too wet.  
Before anyone wears a 'water resistant' or 'water proof' watch while washing their hands, taking a shower, diving in a pool of water or wearing it in the rain, or even commenting further should best read the following articles:    A couple of notes: I take my watch off every night.I never wear a watch in the shower.I never wore a watch when I was high diving, snorkelling or swimmingI wash my hands wearing a watch, but not my wrists.But then again, I respect my collection...
Right on! And for most, the best source of information is posted on Apple's web site. And not just looking at the pictures. Incidentally, the site has and does changed periodically. And I would suggest that the day the  WATCH (Apple Watch or APPLE WATCH) is officially launched, there will be quite an extensive list of things it can and will do beyond just telling us the correct timE.
