I've had my Apple Watch a few weeks now and really like it. It's a first-gen product and has room to grow, but it's a WATCH. I like the same stuff everyone else likes, but I thought I'd throw another benefit out there.
I touch my phone WAY LESS when I'm at work. I think of my phone as an expensive Petri dish. I wipe it down constantly, but it's got to be worse than doctors' ties used to be. Since I've had the watch, the phone stays in my pocket almost all the time, so I'm touching it a lot less.
Also, when I get home I just wash the watch. You can shower with them. I scrub my hands and while I'm at it I soap my watch and rinse it right off.
It's got to be a better way.
