Anyone got one?
I wish. Like the look of it, like the idea of it, but would have no idea what to do with it.
I'm considering getting one for my birthday. Got a mate who's got one said its good.
Reviews have also come out pretty good without being speculator.
Dont do it
Apple are the worst.
Bringing out software updates to make older devices unusable forcing you to upgrade to the newest model.
Android every single time.
From what I can gather the Apple Watch is considered a bit of a flop.
I almost bought an Android smartwatch last year but then I came to my senses. I want less interruptions and notifications, not more. Also, I know I would soon get fed up with having another device to charge every night.
Bang on Dave
Would an android watch connect with an apple phone?
I have one. I like it but I wouldn't recommend one or say that it's worth the money.
At best, wait for the second edition to come out then make a decision.
I just don't know why you would want a powerful computer on your wrist - if you have a smartphone already it just doesn't make sense?
A solution to a problem that never existed. Drains the battery on your phone, but saves you having to take it out of your pocket. Which is a massive effort....
I quite like the changeable clock face, I think they look really smart. But still not convinced it's worth £300. If it dropped to £200 I might be tempted.
I don't have one, but my wife does. SHe bought it, and returned it, then regretted returning it.
However, having said that, my wife works where her hands are busy all day, so for texting etc she thinks it is great. Text comes in, and she can tilt her watch toward her and read the texts, then dictate into her watch to reply. So, in her instance, it is handy. She also wears it when taking the dog for walks as it records her steps. For me, nah! Prefer my watches swiss.
I think the battery issue has been overstated. I've never really noticed a drain on my phone and the watch battery isn't too bad either. I charge my watch every two days which is about the same for my phone.
As I said before, I do like it. I've collected a large number of straps which I change regularly (3rd party ones as the Apple straps and very expensive) and I do change the faces regularly.
I couldn't recommend it to anyone else though as personally I wouldn't buy another one.
I've got one and it is handy for my use. I do a lot of driving with my job so it is incredibly handy for texts etc. I also keep my phone on silent with no vibrate at all times so always usually miss phone calls. The watch vibrates and notifies me much more subtly, which is great for me.
I personally would wait until September when i assume they'll bring out the second generation at their annual conference.
Overall i would recommend.
