Heart rate monitoring was disabled in Russian version, because photometric sensors were designed to monitor blood, not alcohol ;).

So if I ordered one of these in Constantinople, it'd be waiting in Istanbul for pickup?

Still no love for Austria.
But I can understand Apple's reasoning - a launch in a massive market like Austria would probably overwhelm Apple's supply chain.

Correct, although why they changed it, I can't say.

I've been doing a lot of thinking. I've decided to get an Apple Watch.
Ive heard a lot of hate! A lot! A lot of people say they regret it. But I don't care. Because the people I've talked to in person that have one have all loved it.
So you know ... Don't believe everything you read on the Internet.
