For me the Apple Watch does exactly what I want and more - it's a remote screen for my phone, a silent and reliable way to get notifications and the bonus for me is the health tracking. Certainly not why I was originally interested in, but now consider mandatory functionality.
I was a bit disappointed there were no new health sensors and instead we got a compass - meh. I suppose if you often leave your phone behind, especially for the cellular watch users, it could be a compelling feature. Nice to see them still iterating.
The always on screen was a nice surprise - and that affects battery too. I'm amazed they think they can keep the same runtime despite adding a significant drain with the screen (even with the tricks it's still a significant new draw on power!).
