Will I be able to create, edit or complete tasks on my watch even if my iPhone is out of range?

No, unfortunately not. Currently, our watchOS app requires that the Apple Watch is in range of the iPhone in order to be able to update information and create/complete tasks.

Will I receive reminders on my Apple Watch?

If you have Mobile notifications enabled in your Reminders settings, and your iPhone is locked or asleep, you'll get notifications on your Apple Watch, unless your Apple Watch is locked with your passcode.
