Very good to be a watch
If you see the product for what it is, you will be satisfied. Do not expect a thumbnail of your iPhone on your wrist, but look at what it is.
I use it mainly for:
-Make Time and date
-Make Weather and temperature
Quick controls are primarily used to these things:
-iMessage - Answer quick notes
-Bring Timer using Siri
-Styra Music (Apple Music)
-Skumma Through email
-remote Control to Apple TV
I do NOT watch for: (but the things that go to make)
-Svara The phone, in any case I do not sit without a headset in the car
-Svara On long messages
-Shoppa From ASOS
-Fjärrstyra Camera on the mobile phone
Pros and Cons of the Apple Watch Series 2:
+ More information than a normal clock
+ High-quality stainless steel and sapphire crystal
+ Siri is much more useful here than on the phone
+ It does not extend for the phone as often
+ Easy to change the band, even to shorten and lengthen link bracelet for yourself
+ Can play locally stored music to wireless headphones (without phone)
-Do Loaded every other day
-Blir Not motivated to exercise more, as it only sends reminders to move and breathe
Lacks apps and functionality
-Will Become out of date (unlike other clocks)
Mean poor selection of Home Kit -products
-App Developers have not created smart features that are good right on the clock. Tex, you can not watch Snaps (Snapchat) on the clock, but you see that you receive a snap
The time is very good, but lack the "key-features". I miss apple pay. Something kind of access to doors, such as car and home, so you do not need keys anymore. (Where is the Apple Key?)
You get used to fast at this and would rather not be without it, but at the same time, there is much potential for improvement. Setting a timer with Siri is very obvious and works perfect, but Siri overall need to improve to be used even more. Tex "Put on Die Hard 3 on the Apple TV" will not work. Siri does not understand that we pronounce "Die Hard" in the same way as in the US, so you have to talk Swenglish with her. She will not understand that the image must be sent to Apple TV. Sure you can impress by putting on their TV with its Apple Watch and also control the content, but we are not quite "there" yet.
When Siri become better and when we see more products branch contacts linked to Home Kit will watch become more relevant. Sure, you can buy Eve Energy for 500 bucks for each lamp at home, but it is not reasonable. To upgrade their home with equipment for 10-30000kr to only be able to turn off the lights with his watch feels a little "overkill".
Yes, there is the Philips Hue also, but what if you have a lamp where the entire design is based on a stylish light bulb?
Apple needs to get moving at Home Kits products themselves, develop Siri and begin to create their own apps that makes the clock gets even better or perhaps just drop existing in Sweden (apple pay * cough *). Perhaps even able to read blood sugar levels? "Take an apple"
Are you in Apple Ecosystem and like the past, you will probably be happy with this, but it's definitely not for everyone.
Side Note: Looking forward to test golfapparna summer. Bought Stainless Steel
Very happy with this. The screen is very good and it is difficult to "tap error" despite the small size. The time feels a little heavy that contribute to the feeling of quality. I'm not even monstrous fan of such sports belts when the skin does not breathe through and I get sweaty and clammy, but it's just to order new belts in other materials on eBay at a fraction of the price Apple takes.
Battery life is very good, 1 day (15 hours) use (without GPS active) uses about 15% battery.
WatchOS still has its shortcomings, but much of this is due to lack of development of third-party app provider doors. All in all, I believe that this is a good buy for most people, but those who are irritated iOS / iPhone's limited operating system should perhaps go for something else.
Having now had time to play with my watch since it was released on Friday, 16 September. I was one of those who chose not to buy the generation 1 because it could not stand water.
Is very satisfied with the display, good visibility and clear in sunlight. The functionality, especially built-in GPS, heart rate monitor, etc. is really good and works perfectly. Like it reminds you if you sat still long. It also works really well to take calls directly via the clock - for those times when you do not have your phone nearby.
Battery life is "okay". If I get up at 07, I have about 50% percent battery left forward noon at 17-18. So expect to charge the watch every night. Siri feels a little slower on the clock than on the phone.
