"There's a built-in speaker and mic to receive calls, Cook says. Read full emails on the watch itself."

I will never hold a phone conversation on my watch.

Well if they are showing her running a HM, I'm going to "guess" that the battery will last at least 2 hours with use. Now don't know how much use that actually is, but that is good news. For a full it would need to last at least 4.5 hours (really for the weekend warrior) for like 5+.

(seems that would take forever if you don't have a grid view).

Using apple pay on the watch:

"Just double-tap the side button to pull up credit cards to pay with Apple Watch. Don't even need to touch the credit card reader, says Apple. Just hold your watch near the terminal, wait for it to beep and vibrate, and you're done paying."

Re: Will you be getting iWatch?

My current bank for my checking account is not supporting Apple Pay. If they don't by the time Apple Watch ships, I'll likely change banks.
