I've found that if you don't wear the watch uncomfortably tight (at least, what I consider too tight), the heart rate monitor is completely pointless.  I get that it needs to be tight to your wrist to work properly, and that I don't wear the watch that way, so I'd like to be able to turn it off completely, so at least it's not wasting battery life taking false readings.
Pleased they seem to be doing something about the measurement of standing activity. I've had multiple days where it has given me credit for standing more hours than I've actually been wearing the watch.
Same here. With the exception of day 1, when I played with it endlessly, mine always has plenty in reserve at the end of the day.On the 42mm, I'm easily getting 24 hour battery life.
 I have to admit, I was surprised by the size of the box when I opened the package.  I was shocked when I got the shipping info that said it was over 3lb, but the box explains that.  It's very thick plastic.  It's a decent approximation of the sort of box you would get with a premium watch, but at the same time, it feels cheaper than other watch boxes I've got.Regardless, it's a box - it'll sit in the closet next to my other watch boxes and never get looked at again. The...
Now that's true, but tomorrow's going to be interesting.  I'm off to England, so it will be given an "extended" normal use test by me since I'm taking a red eye from San Francisco. I'll let you know when it dies........
 Totally agree with you.  I'm really interested to see how the battery actually fairs when mine shows up this afternoon.  I'm expecting better than 19 hours.
This is good news. While I don't buy into the "Apple tax" nonsense when it comes to their devices, Apple accessories like cables always seem expensive when compared with third party options, so not being tied to a single cable for charging is great news.
Yeah I know.  I never understand the multiple pictures people post of various stages of opening the box.  Don't get me wrong, I think Apple do a great job with their packaging, but I don't really care that much.  It's the product that matters.
 All is not lost yet - you're in the same position as me in terms of what Apple are telling you, but mine seems to be on the way. Try creating yourself a UPS "My Choice" account (it's free). I ordered at 12:01 (42mm Stainless Steel, Black Classic Buckle), was charged on Monday and the Apple order page was changed to "Preparing For Shipment", which it still says.  I didn't get an e-mail from Apple this morning, but the UPS My Choice account shows a delivery expected by end...
Ha ha!  I know what you mean.  My wife and I adopted our child, and while we were fortunate to be at the hospital while our birthmother was in labor, we (obviously) weren't in the delivery room, so I did pace the halls like fathers of old! Actually my main reason for wanting it to arrive before I go on holiday is I know it will annoy my dad (who I'll be visiting) enormously if I have an Apple Watch and he doesn't!
