Apple Watch - Who has one?

Anyone have an Apple watch? I need a new watch and considering several options, Apple Watch is one of the choices I'm looking at.

I primarily use a wrist watch for sports, lap timer, etc. It would also come in handy to check emails and txt's while I'm on the field without looking at my phone.

Thoughts?

I have one and don't like it. What kind of sports would you use it for? If that's really the primary purpose, you'd probably be better off with a Garmin.

if you have an apple phone, it be the perfect(really only) choice.

I have a moto 360 I got a year ago,







and once you go from dumb watch to smart watch, pulling out your phone to check messages turn into what birds and peasants do.

You just casually glance at the watch to find out that someone liked your instagram photo, or glance at the messages sent by your wife saying she needs eggs and milk while driving home.

changing music in the car is cool with your watch, and changing tunes playing out of the bluetooth speaker via your phone through the watch is cool at pool parties when that wack song you downloaded starts playing loud from your phones music collection.


If I dont wear it, I get motherf*cking phantom vibrations yo,


phantom notification vibrations..

Not an Apple watch, I have a Garmin Vivosport. The only reason I bought it was because it was very low cost out of pocket through a program at work.

So far I like it, but wouldn't have paid more for it. Great if you are into sports (running, hiking, walking, swimming, golf, etc....).

Is this the V2 watch or the first gen? Can you take a pic on your wrist? Curious to see how big it is...

Seems like we've done this before.... no?

Anyhow, check out the Garmin Fenix 3. I got this as a sports watch and since i received it, i haven't taken it off except to shower. Downloadable faces, LOADS of sports, exercise activity recording. Monitors sleep, step count, can work as a bike computer, works with other apps. (myfitnesspal for calorie consumption) Looks good, easily change out watch bands. Can get it with sapphire crystal face for added durability.

This is my actual watch using a Natostrap as a band.

Apple watch, lol.

My wife bought the cheapest one for $300+. Dropped it within 2 weeks of owning that thing (like she does with all of her phones). Stupid glass design with stupid lack of any sort of bezel leads to absolute destruction if you happen to drop it or knick it on anything. Glass was destroyed, apparently difficult to fix, so she never paid to fix it, still sitting there, broken to this day. That was a good use of money.

I swear they design these things to fail quickly and often. Why else would you NOT have a bezel of any sorts around a curved glass piece like that? Ridiculous.

Should have checked the return policy. I'm sure Apple would've worked out a fair deal for you; new iPod shuffle or at least some wireless headphones in exchange for your wife.

Meh, she does this all the time. She saves her own personal money (not our combined money) and blows it all on stupid phones or watches that eventually get destroyed or break. Her fault for not looking into what can be done to recoup that money, but she's completely stupid with money so I am not surprised. I stay out of that situation entirely.

Example: Bought new Iphone 6, buys plan so it covers replacements if anything happens (FINALLY something smart!!!) Proceeds then to buy this super strong glass protective screen that will crack instead of your actual glass cracking if you drop it. She drops it, cracks glass protective screen, saves phone. WHY ARE YOU CONCERNED WITH SAVING THE GODDAMNED PHONE IF YOU HAVE A FREE REPLACEMENT POLICY!?! all she did was spend extra money on the expensive screen protector, only to get denied a replacement since it saved the phone. Now that's smart.

Guess you picked a winner, eh? My wife uses those glass protectors to protect it from scratches because sometimes she just tosses it in her purse and doesn't want her keys and other junk scratching it.
