5. Make a call
6. Where am I?
7. Wider market

MacDailyNews Take: Being able to use Siri would be useful for those times we’re without out iPhones (on runs, etc.). We can’t wait for Siri to be able to do things offline (first in iPhones and iPads and then, someday, in Apple Watch itself)!

  1. Once again, there is nothing here that cannot be done without LTE, as long as you don’t leave the iPhone behind. So an LTE Watch is only of value to those who do: i.e. the ‘fitness’ hobbyists (folks, ‘fit’ is NOT the same thing as ‘healthy’). So an LTE Watch will only be of interest to the ‘fitness’ crowd — unless I am missing something?

    1. That’s sort of the whole point – you would no longer be required to have a phone nearby. Very cool for those that like to wear watches (I don’t, so it’s a moot point for me). The battery life, though, that will be the real question!
