Battery life and some function could be made better

published

I have been using this watch around 6 months and mostly i like it. Fitness track function and synchronisation with mobile is great. but the battery life is the worst part of it. if you keep your most of function on, you hardly get one-day battery life. i am able to wear it because i forget to charge every day. so battery life could be made better. i don't know why apple watch has no inbuilt sleep track app? why it removed google map from apple watch os ? there are very limited watch faces to download. so i wish these are the things to be improved

Purchased in December 2019 at JB Hi-Fi for $699.00.

I use this watch every single day!

published

I never thought I needed a watch as my Iphone has capabilities of everything! However, this watch quickly became an every day must have as I soon depended on it for everything and less so from my phone. It’s only downfall is that you aren’t able to go on Instagram or Facebook of see more messages, you can only get notifications or reply to direct ones. Battery life could be better as I need to charge it every night, but that’s not a drama.

Apple Watch Series 5

published

I purchased my Apple Watch in Oct 2019 and have loved it ever since. It pairs perfectly with my Mac and iPhone. The watch is great for tracking my exercise and also makes life easier with its reminders and ease of use. I do however think that the swimming tracker element of the watch needs to be improved.

First time with Apple since the iPhone 3g!

published

I purchased an Apple Watch to replace my Fitbit Versa due to wanting notifications. The fitness aspect is very similar to the Fitbit however the application and integration with the iOS ecosystem is where it shines.

I mainly use messaging notifications and it excels at this.

Build quality wise, I haven't had any issues. Battery lasts for up to 15 hours for me and I usually charge it overnight.

Apple doesn’t sell such a product anywhere. If you want to use an Apple Warch, you need to have an iPhone. Apple Watches won’t suit your use case, sorry.

I am using my second Apple Watch after upgrading early this year. The watch does almost all that it claims very well - but does NOT give an accurate heart rate, contrary to its claim. That aside, it’s a wonderfully flexible watch. It is able to make and receive phone calls if you don’t mind others nearby hearing your conversation. However for the phone function to operate you need to purchase the slightly more expensive watch with a ‘chip’ insert. Hope this assists.

Can you use all the apps with the gps only model

Yes you can. It runs the same WatchOS, therefore meaning all apps are supported from the GPS+Cellular model.
