My first impressions of the Apple Watch (after having it 24-hrs or so)

1. You do need to read the instructions - it's not an iPad where everything's so obvious. 
2. It's more thoughtfully designed than I thought. Some seriously clever design went into making a watch computer easy to use.
3. There are more apps than I was expecting at launch, and I've already fallen in love with a few (like the Delta app).
4. The sport wrist band is kind of a pain to put on. Once on, it feels great. 
5. I already want more watch faces designs. 
6. The movement and feel of the digital crown is just beautiful. It feels like quality. The pressure screen works really well, too.
7. The charging cable is really well designed, but the cable is like twice as long as an iPhone charging cable, which believe it or, seems too long (and takes up a decent amount of room). 
8. I wished it held a charge a lot longer. It hasn't gone dead yet, but when I saw it was low on battery, I took it off and plugged it in. I'm not used to having my watch off my wrist for two hours. 
9. I was surprised how much configuration for the watch is actually done on the iPhone, rather than the watch.
10. It's a lot more fun than I was expecting. You find yourself messing with it just for the sheer fun of it, and fun is...well...fun.

Now just waiting for my black sports band (not digging the white band). That's my first take on it. So far - super diggin' it.

P.S. No need to defend your choice of watch -- the title of this isn't "My Apple Watch vs. Your Samsung or moto Watch." Just giving my first impressions of this watch. There's nothing wrong this those watches, so no need to post a defensive comment. If you're not interested, or an Apple watch doesn't suit you, costs too much, whatever, there's lot of other stuff to read on G+ today.

It look like toy watch for 5$.
Seriously, there are better ones. Look at Moto 360, or LG Wartch R

Yes yes... i know... this is not for "the most amazing phone ever" :P

In 90-minutes come join me, RC and our special in-studio guest, Tamara Lackey. Of course, we'll be talking about the new Lightroom CC (and hopefully answering one of the biggest questions we're seeing on the Web today), and we're taking your questions LIVE on the air. It's going to be a lot of info and a lot of fun (so can you please share this?) http://kelbytv.com/thegrid

+Ray Ferretti yeah that was also the case when I upgraded from 3 to 4. But I was wondering if that works if I skipped one version in between. I don't want to buy an upgrade to 5. Instead I'm going to buy the LR6 full version. I hadn't the need to buy the LR5 when it was released.

This didn't work for me so Adobe had me go into my library and delete the cache folder in application support. That did it for me.
