    1. Pair their phones with more than one of their wearables.
    2. WIFI available with the LG Watch Urbane, Moto 360, Sony Smartwatch 3 and the Samsung Gear Live.
    3. Apps can now stay visible until you dismiss them.

    What's not to like?

    There's that multiple options screen for mute again.

    Urbane peeps, do you have that same screen (pictured on the R above)?

    Drawing emoji comes in handy sometimes and is fun. If there's a way to get them to work by speaking commands, I never figured out how to do it, but drawing one it quick and simple.

    My point was those with the device if you are seeing issues or bugs or if a feature is not panning out like it was described.

    Example:

    I have the Asus zenwatch and like the new interface but dislike that it will not have WiFi capabilities.

    That was an example, I will have my feelings later after using it a week.

    I found gesture controls to not be useful enough that I want to keep them on all day. I'm also not a fan of tilt to wake, which would make the gesture controls a bit more handy in situations where I actually needed them.

    I did some testing with the wifi, the results of which can be found within the posts in the following thread.

    Lock screen seems buggy on the zenwatch. Went to unlock it and would not recognize my touch input. May be because the backside was not getting great skin contact as I like to wear my watch a little loose.

    Worked fine when I first turned the feature on. But 35 mins ago my alarm went off and I was trying to unlock my watch and it would not unlock.

    Why would you lock your watch?

    Because I can .

    No, I wanted to test out all the new features so I could know which features worked or didn't.
