 Then answer the question: If not android then who are these other phones you want supported?  Feature phones?   LOL.  I'm making mountains out of molehills about a product 6 months away or claiming to be some awesome Apple super-defender of the faith from day 1 of the iPhone but don't even have an iPhone.
 It is much easier to write on a bigger screen than a small one with your finger.  In asian language mode the usable writing area on the current iPhone is very small and occasionally fiddly. Yes, the larger 5.5 will be proportionally more popular in Asia (well, china and japan anyway) than here for that reason.
 They report share.  They like more share when they get it.  They don't chase share.  Any long term apple fan is familiar with this. They DO NOT CARE THEY CAN ONLY REACH 10% OF THE US SMARTPHONE MARKET.  Even if that were a true statement.  Because that 10% is the ones with the most disposable income to buy a luxury item.  Because you were whining about Apple only having 40% share in the US.  Who has the rest?  Android.  So if you don't want Android support because it...
 There are different luxury tiers.   Apple is about the Louis Vuitton level of luxury for iPhones.  http://stratechery.com/2014/iphone-6-louis-vuitton-chanel/ I like this article...it provides good insight that the tech articles do not.  What he wrote goes double for the watch.  The upper tier will be expensive but mid tier TAG Heuer level, not Patek Phillipe level. Maybe as low as Movado Master Level ($4000)...there are TAGs that run $10K.  I don't think Apple can get...
 A) because it looks like assB) because it generates so little power that it's meaningless.  Your solar powered watch uses practically no power. Smart watches with active displays (as opposed to eInk) are energy hogs.
 Lol...then you aren't taking any/many pictures every day.  I have 3 batteries for my Nikon.  I've burned through 2 in a day.  One sits in the charger (its a smart one so it won't fry) in case I'm stupid and forget to charge after using my camera after grabbing my camera one day discovering it had a half charge and the spare was flat.  I had to use my phone after a bit.
 Buy 2.  Yes, that's a half joking.  But it would work for you although you'd have to take it off to switch...
 A) Apple doesn't care about share.  It cares about great products.  Great products leads to sales.  Which leads to profit.  Large profits.B) Apple supports its own ecosystem first and if necessary will support another.  Supporting Google ecosystem is not necessary.  In fact it's stupid.C) The Apple watch will drive more iPhone sales if Android users need an iPhone and want the watch.  Which is your point here:  How does opening up the apple watch to Android help drive...
 I'm getting the 6+ for my wife who carries her phone in her purse anyway and taking her 5S.  If I need NFC I'll buy the watch.
 And a built in pony.  Definitely a pony or it would be useless. If they put all that stuff into the watch it would be iPhone sized.  GPS is a huge battery suck.  Turn on GPS and you can watch the battery drain as you run or ride without an external battery pack attached.  Unless you're not running very far.  In which case who cares? If you are biking then having your phone is a no brainer.  If you run, it's still not that big a hassle to get an arm band or belt.  I prefer...
