I was waiting for the second version and planning to buy, but when I tried it on yesterday it felt overly bulky to me. I love tech so lamentably decided to wait until Apple thins it down. What I am wondering is if they plan on doing so. Although Apple certainly prioritizes thinner products, with such a small device perhaps Apple Watch will be the exception and they will prioritize battery life and new features instead. If Series 3 adds cell connectivity I may reconsider waiting for a thinner watch as full iPhone independence would be very compelling.
I hate my Apple Watch. It has so much potential but it just never works reliably. 9 times out of ten I just get my phone out as I watch the little spinner endlessly loop on the watch. No matter if its trying to über, get directions or look at text messages everything is just hit and miss. I had high hopes for Watch OS3 but mehh it made bugger all difference.
I cannot find the swim app on my Series 1 watch running WatchOS3. Did Apple write a program that knows I have a Series 1 watch that is not Swim proof so the swimming part of the app does not show on my Series 1watch?
I have the original Apple Watch and I'm on a budget. I don't bike or swim but I do go to the gym. The Series 1 and 2 have similar processors , the only difference is the series 2 has the GPS functionality built in the processor. Is the speed difference in the series 1 worth the upgrade from my original Apple watch?
"When paired with a newer iPhone, the Apple Watch will track steps climbed. But on its own, it does not." Thank you for this review- I had the first apple watch but the tracking of my steps was so off that I started using a fitbit - I am not sure I understand if that has been improved with the 2 series and also do you have to have your phone on you to get your steps tracked accurately ?
