On the eve of tomorrow's earnings call, Apple has reason to celebrate the latest news about its Apple Watch: A new survey indicates that 97% of Apple Watch owners are satisfied with their purchase, Mashable reports. The survey by independent research company Wristly polled more than 800 owners and found that, "contrary to speculation from what seems to be a majority of Silicon Valley tech pundits," 31% of users are "somewhat satisfied," while 66% are "very satisfied/delighted."

Mashable notes this is good news for the company just three months after the wearable device's debut, but it also points out that the survey is of early adopters who might not be willing to admit they made a mistake, and that the survey didn't compare results to those of users of competitors' watches. (A New York Times writer decided she was "breaking up" with her Apple Watch.)
