Of course, we are all entitled to our own opinions. If I may offer my experiences as a counterpoint: I have had my Apple Watch since May 6. I have found that my iPhone 5S spends much more time in my pocket. I handle and respond to, what feels like, 50% of texts using the watch. The Siri feature works excellent to send or respond to texts, and the suggested responses often are quite sufficient. Another feature that gets more use than I expected is the "Speaker Watch". I'm...
Real life example: We have Nest thermostats. My wife is a violin teacher. The thermostat for the room where she teaches is about 10 meters away in a different room. Using her iPhone she can adjust the thermostat without getting up and leaving the room and, thus, interrupting the flow of instruction.
Data point: Status: Processing Items: Delivery 4/24 to 5/8, 42mm SS Milanese. Order confirmation received 9 minutes after launch.

OMG! That apartment community is about a block from MegaWatt Computers! The used Mac Mecca here in Tulsa! 
Yes, much of the popular wisdom echos your sentiment. I really don't know what the Apple Watch will do. Does anyone? But, I remember when Microsoft had the funeral for the iPhone. By then the potential of the iPhone was starting to show. And, as you pointed out, this is the first generation. I keep seeing parallels with the iPhone. Perhaps I should ask forgiveness for that. But, it rings loud in my mind. I am still struck by the word "watch." Just like the iPhone, everyone...
I assume you're talking about the Apple Watch in general. I disagree. I was there when the iPhone was introduced. It was a bit difficult to grasp that the iPhone was actually a computer that could also make phone calls. Now, the Apple Watch is a computer that also tells time. I believe that the Apple Watch will follow the same trajectory as the iPhone did after introduction. We really don't know it's full potential. But, unlike the iPhone, software developemnt for the...
A bit off topic, but your comment led me to google "non-invasive blood sugar testing." This, as probably expected, seems to have a lot of activity and some promising technologies. I would not be surprised to see this type of testing appearing in wearables. I would definitely be very interested.
As I see it, for every incremental increase in battery capacity, we will see incremental increases in functionality of portable devices as in, "We just increased the battery capacity 20% in the same physical size! We can now power a display twice the resolution as before. Oh, and yes, you will still have to charge it overnight."
Ordered. 42mm Apple Watch, Milanese loop, delivery 4/24-5/8.
