    I barely wear it these days. Better battery life, faster performance, and more useful features would be nice to have on the Apple Watch 2.
    Are you selling yours

    I've had mine for just over a month, so maybe I'm not entirely entitled to post here, but so far the experience is positive.
    True, battery life is not so great (after a day there is a 30% left most of the times, so I can't really keep it for another day), and third party apps usually are slow.
    But for notifications and health/sport tracking it is fantastic.

    I use mine daily for both running/exercise as well as productivity. I like it, but I don't love it. Personally, I don't think what it offers is worth the price. My Pebble Time was cheaper and handled third party app support (i.e., RunKeeper) much more reliably than the AW. The AW is can't reliably launch third party apps and that is so disappointing bc it was a big draw. I hope the next iteration is better ..... Although, I'd probably wait before purchasing. I still don't like the price point for the features.

    What I do like is that they have two different sizes to accommodate different sized wrists and it is much more attractive than other smart watches and fitness trackers out there, IMHO.

    Ok, so I just had to unpair and re-pair my watch to my phone. For some reason, it kept disconnecting from my phone. I turned it off, hard reset it and I turned the bluetooth off on my phone. It's very strange. Has this happened to anyone else?

    been wearing it every day for over a year now and it still manages to absolutely delight me at times. Had one of those eureka moments just a few days back, when my watch alerted me to leave now for a meeting and one tap and a force touch later it had opened up maps and started navigating me to the place. Did not have to touch my phone once all the way from home throughout the car journey - this is the space the watch should occupy in my life.
    Aside from notifications it's also become completely indispensable for the gym for me. Love to leave the phone at home and unlike 99% of the other gym goers not stare at my phone the entire time. Tracks and archives my workouts, plays my music and that's all I need.

    Goes without saying I have heaps of software suggestions to improve the experience, plus it needs to feel snappier (hardware) eventually... but we'll get there and until then I'm not taking off this iteration, it's off to a solid start and I'm pumped for what's to come.

    Schedule alerts are worth the purchase price and then some. Watch has kept me from missing meetings in hectic work environment. Turned off most alerts except calendar, text, and fitness. Emails can wait- yet option to see alerts for email VIPS is also great.

    I've admittedly underused other features (Hey Siri, navigation) on watch and phone alike. Will definitely get the version with some standalone functionality - whether that's watch 2.0 or a later version. Will seriously consider Hermes next time- came out 3 weeks *after* I bought first one */sigh/*

    I use gmail and only have the primary inbox pushed. Works well

    yep, I've had a very similar issue once and had to unpair the watch too. Great inconvenience because it meant that all my recorded workouts and basically everything in the activity was wiped.

    That's definitely something I wish was fixed, where the data was stored in the phone and/or iCloud so you don't lose it. Did you restore it from a backup?

    hmm.. I think I did, but I could swear I didn't get any activity data back. Maybe somebody else can confirm that!

    iCloud backup or iTunes backup?
