Update: Apple has just released Watch OS 1.01. They list these changes:

  • Siri
  • Measuring stand activity
  • Calculating calories for indoor cycling and rowing workouts
  • Distance and pace during outdoor walk and run workouts
  • Accessibility
  • Third party apps

So it looks like it already got some of these new features in this first update. Hopefully we will see the rest I am talking about soon too. Apple has also added language support Brazilian Portuguese, Danish, Dutch, Swedish (I really hope that this means that we soon get Apple Watch here in Sweden), Russian, Thai, and Turkish.
