Bought a Series 2 and have been using it for a few days. Replaced my Garmin fitness tracker band after I realizes I loved the notifications.

10/10. Would recommend to anyone with an iPhone.

I only like wearing mine at work so I don't have to take my phone out to see who's trying to bug me

The gps on the new one makes all the difference.

Both my wife and I like our Gen 1, will very likely upgrade to Gen two or might wait for Gen 3 as the GPS is not a necessity for me. My wife would replace her Garmin running watch with a Gen 2, that'll be a birthday present very likely.

I get a lot of notifications during the day (business related) so it's helpful for me instead of having to find my phone every time to read them

Also ties into my home automation/security and buzzes my wrist if any of my doors open, etc. Whereas I might miss it if my phone is in my pocket.

My wife loves hers.

Both my wife and I have a gen 1. She mostly uses it for fittness and I mostly use mine for work. It is really nice to review emails without pulling pulling out my phone.

I use it extensively when traveling as well for directions. I like that it quickly view the directions on my wrist.

The wife and I both have Gen1s.

They're pretty darned peachy keen.

I probably won't upgrade to a Gen2, even with the water resistance... maybe next year's model.

I'd like a round one for sure.

I have a moto360 and I bought my mother an apple watch for christmas last year.

They aren't life changing devices but they are handy and fun. I love getting texts on my watch, or being able to answer calls on my watch. The maps and directions are handy too, especially if you are in a car without a mount for your phone or gps.

When mine dies (got to be well over 2 years old now and I have not been gentle to it) I will happily buy whatever the new hotness is in smartwatches.

Just to really put a bug up somebody's ass, people notice a whiz angry silly smartwatch before they do an expensive traditional watch.

Can't even lift your phone out of your pocket?

What kind of feeble society are we living in??

So as long as you're on the same WiFi network, you get your notifications on the Watch regardless of where your phone is, correct?

I know you're kidding, but the serious answer is that in a situation where it's rude to look at your phone, it's easy to glance at your watch and see if whatever just buzzed is important enough to interrupt.

This.  Once I got used to the bifference between turn left and turn right buzzes I've used it to keep from being as conspicuously tourist when traveling.

Correct, if you are far away from your phone but still in WiFi then it will switch to WiFi on the watch

Cool, that's what I'm looking for. I hate carrying my phone around when I'm at home, but I hate getting bitched at for missing a call/text even more.

Do you have to buy an otter box to encase it so it does not get scratched?

This is the only reason I like mine. My hands are usually dirty at work so I don't have to get my phone out to see who is calling or texting me. I'm not a watch guy but it was a gift from my wife.

Since I got my 7 Plus it's much easier to keep it in my pocket and look at my watch.
Link Posted: 12/21/2016 6:10:23 PM EST
I bought one for my wife for XMAS. Hope she likes it.
Link Posted: 12/21/2016 6:58:38 PM EST
I really want one.

But one of two things would happen.
Either I would love it and it would become an everyday wear item or I won't like it and it will languish in a desk drawer for a decade before I tossed it.

Link Posted: 12/21/2016 7:18:14 PM EST
My wife wears her gen 1 all the time.

I still prefer to wear my assortment of dumb watches.
Link Posted: 12/21/2016 7:31:03 PM EST
I get notifications on my fitbit. Good enough. I don't need all of the other stuff. I just like having the notice so I don't miss calls and txts when my phone is in my pocket.

No thanks, Omega is better… How much is the series 1 going for these days?

As did I. It'll be here Friday. If she doesn't like it, I'll take it back and get a 42mm for me.
