“I’ve already had a little bit of wrist time with the Apple Watch myself. To be specific, I’ve been trying a 42mm stainless-steel model with a fancy chain-link “Milanese loop” band that Apple loaned to me,” Harry McCracken writes for Fast Company. “I’ve learned quite a bit already that I didn’t get from attending both of Apple’s media events and getting brief hands-on demos at them.”
• The hardware’s fit, finish, and general cleverness is exemplary
• The size is right
• The screen is delightful
• It has trouble waking up

• You only want to touch the screen a little
• Apple Watch etiquette remains an unresolved issue

MacDailyNews Take: A good article – recommended – but we’re not having any issues with our Watch displays coming on when we want them to. We would like for some way to STOP them from coming on – like when doing crunches with arms crossed (off, on, off, on, off, on). Anyone know if there’s a way to lock the Apple Watch’s display off?
