just got one (late to the party). Anyone offer any good apps to have or accessories, I note it seems you can only purchase genuine charger cable ?

I just purchased one yesterday,
42mm sport with the new nylon band they announced at the event,
I must say it looks neat, but that's all it really is in my opinion a good looker,
I might not have given it chance by owning it just over a day,
But I'm going to take mine back to Apple even at the lower price of £299
I shouldn't of really bought it, but sometimes we have impulse buys,

Apple need to make it properly waterproof, that is a massive failing in my opinion. I'd love one as I'm a big Apple fan and could see myself getting a lot from one. Hopefully they'll address the waterproofing in later versions.

They seem to perform well in waterproof tests, including swimming.

It seems apple are overly cautious with the IP rating they gave it. Interestingly the iPhone 6s features quite a few similar waterproofing features, I'm guessing iPhone 7 may be IP rated too.

I swim with mine every week and have no issues. I did buy a catalyst case but decided to take the risk. I've been swimming without the case now for about 4mths and have not had any issues at all.

I agree they've been overly cautious.

I've had my 42mm Space Black Stainless Steel with link bracelet, since they were released last year. Not a day as gone by, where I not worn it. It's never let me down, the more I've used it, the I've more become reliant upon it like I was with my iPhone.

Siri learns with you over time, I use Siri on my Apple Watch to find alternate routes home when the traffic is bad. I respond to texts, Facebook messenger, emails too by Siri. I use the remote app to control the music on my MacBook to play it over various AirPlay speakers in the house.

I'm even able to stay updated on those annoying iPhone games, that become addictive. Lol.

I've only ever one low battery issue, because I didn't allocate it correctly on the charger stand I purchased and the watch lasted a full 44hrs before turning itself off.

Obviously I maybe a little bias, because I am an apple fan, who has owned various / numerous models iPods, iPhones, iPads, Macs & AppleTVs.

But the big question is, would I upgrade to any possible Apple Watch2...? Maybe not, I'm hoping they will offer an internals upgrade program because the design & size can't really be altered.

Who on here has found they now love or hate theirs?

Any ideas if they are penned in for an update soon?

I want a fit bit but wonder if this is worth the me extra money
