I like it but I don't really NEED one. Which is why I don't think I can justify any other model than the sport one. I'm pretty certain I will end up buying one

I really like mine. Again I don't NEED one. But I wanted one.

I find the notifications are only 10-15secs behind my phone.

Initially had an issue getting haptic notifications for mail. But it's because of a setting (group by app) I had running on the phone which is on iOS 9 Beta 1 (I have a Dev acct).

But as soon as I switched that off they come through fine.

I've changed some settings and they seem spot on now. Handy for answering calls when phone isn't within reach. Unfortunately got to go give it back shortly

Apple Watch - who's got one?

So far with mine

This is quite a nice little feature.





M I C K E Y M O U S E. Mickey Mouse.



This shows thought too. A little pouch for the excess links.



All in over the past couple of days I've been very impressed and the battery life is a lot better than anticipated.

Took off charge at 0630 this morning and this is what remains.



The Siri dictation is surprisingly accurate and great for replying to messages whilst in the shower

Heart rate monitor is spot on too.

I've had my 42mm Stainless Steal Space Black since 21st May and I'm finding that I now use my phone around 75% less than I used to.


Ive also got myself a white sports band too, for those days, where I'm not wearing a shirt & tie.

Well the battery is really impressing me.

At 2300 before I went to bed I had this



At 0800 after receiving a few emails through the night I had this left (total time since last charge was 26hrs)



I then put it on charge to see how long it would take. I forgot to check at 0930 but at 0910 it was on 93%. So probably 1hr 20mins I reckon to charge it to full from 27%

Interesting! How hard are u using it? I'm waiting on my pebble time steel but I am an apple man at heart and not sure how compatible it's going to be for full functionality!

I use it a lot.

Texts and emails I read on it. I view BBC news on it. I use the workout app and RunKeeper.

I have been streaming music from the watch to my Bose speaker today for 90mins and I'm still on 75% battery at the moment.

I've also been controlling the Apple TV with it for the last 45mins and again hasn't impacted on the battery over normal.

I use Siri to dictate replies to messages etc

So I think the battery estimates by Apple are either conservative or they're quoting worse case scenario.
