Watchface customization: Open or Closed?
I wonder if Watchface customization for this watch will be closed and only limited to those offered through the App Store, or if it will allow other apps to use the API (if there even is one) and 'theme' the watch, like those Watch-making apps for Android Wear ones or Pebble ones.
At least from the preview, though, the animated ones do look better on the Apple Watch than the ones I've seen on Android Wear (not even going to mention the Atari-looking ones from the Pebble).

Re: Watchface customization: Open or Closed?
I really hope they do. Just today I read that Android ones already have 1000 watchfaces, and that's only the ones published to the Play Store. I know letting the API open also opens the door to crappy watchfaces (trust me, out of those 1000 for Android Wear some are more crap than a first grader trying out MS Paint for the first time), but it also lets people do amazing things.
