Not surprising
I have the watch and I like it. It is good for keeping me informed on incoming messages (IM's, Texts) when i drive and some other productivity issues. However..... there are still performance issues. The updates on non Apple apps are not great. It is hit or miss that they update information making them less useful than pulling out your phone and checking on the Info screen. The Apple apps continue to update flawlessly. On the ergonomics front, the watch faces are boring and limited. Even after a year there are very few third party "complicatins" available on the faces and all the complications are limited.
