Really wanted to like it but I'm just so unmoved. None of the functions are things I care about having on my wrist, as opposed to on the phone that I'm required to carry in order to use the watch in the first place. Can't see it ever getting to "must have" status like ipod/iphone/ipad. For this reason I feel like Jobs wouldn't have released it (nor would he have brought out U2 to perform in 2014).
I'm thinking someone will make an accessory that will allow attachment of a conventional watch strap or bracelet. The smaller version could be integrated into the bracelet of an existing watch, or made into a buckle.
That said, it's a phone remote. It needs to be thought of as like a remote PTT on a walkie-talkie. It's a fuelband replacement, a remote for your headset so you can stop touching your ear like Daniel Craig has been demanding, and there will be other niche uses. Emphasis on niche.

Marc Newson. If Ikepod made a square watch it would look like this.
