    Who wants to fiddle with little knobs, squinting at a microscopic interface, when you could just ask the watch what the weather is and have it tell you.

    I’d expect this solution from Samsung or Blackberry, not a forward-thinking company like Apple.

      This is totally my personal opinion, but I don't think audible interactions are the answer for a watch. The only reason I wear a watch is to keep track of the time in meetings without looking rude by pulling out my phone. The last thing I'd want is my watch blurting out the time or weather in this situation.

      I also never use Siri, because I feel like an idiot talking to my phone when there are other people around.

      An on-screen interface 100% required for any smart watch that I would purchase.
