    So my question is how close does your iPhone have to be to the watch, could I put my iPhone in my locker at the gym and still be able to use it to text or call or use the other apps?

      The iPhone and Apple Watch talk via Bluetooth 4.0. The approximate range of Bluetooth 4.0 is 330 feet. But as with all radio communication this will vary depending on walls (materials and thickness) and interference from other sources (devices, appliances, machinery, the sun, etc.)

        Actually that's not completely factual. The Apple Watch and iPhone will communicate with each other if they're on the same WiFI network. So if the gym has wifi, and both are on the network, they don't have to be in Bluetooth range.

          I thought about that, but I figured a gym wouldn't have wifi. But maybe that was a bad assumption. Plus, I'm not sure about the wifi connection in the first place. Even thought I have read that too, I don't see how the Apple Watch would get on a wifi network -- there are no controls to log into one.

            They told me in the Apple shop that Bluetooth and wifi can be used (but they don't always get it right!)
