RANDOM GUY, 08 Sep 2016did u even ****ing try it :/ yeah i tried apple watch at store, i did not liked the design,so if the new watch has same design and battery as previous, what is there to like.
Vito1, 08 Sep 2016The design and battery life is still terrible.did u even ****ing try it :/
-50m? wow but is the phone also good for -50m?
Bluetooth works only as far as 10m and in the water it might be even less... so what will I do with a watch when I deep dive and the watch has no connection to the phone (and is useless) ... ?
"WR50M" dos not mean that you can immerse it to 50m LOL.
You can go under shower or take short swim.
It is same as Volkswagen "fuel economy"!
Wikipedia: The International Organization for Standardization issued a standard for water resistant watches which also prohibits the term waterproof to be used with watches, which many countries have adopted. This standard was introduced in 1990 as the ISO 2281:1990 and only designed for watches intended for ordinary daily use and are resistant to water during exercises such as swimming for a short period. They may be used under conditions where water pressure and temperature vary. However, whether they bear an additional indication of overpressure or not, they are not intended for submarine diving.
ISO 2281 water resistance testing of a watch consists of:
1) Resistance when immersed in water at a depth of 10 cm. Immersion of the watch in 10 cm of water for 1 hour.
2) Resistance of operative parts. Immersion of the watch in 10 cm of water with a force of 5 N perpendicular to the crown and pusher buttons (if any) for 10 minutes.
itrpw, 07 Sep 2016so Apple cant claim its waterproof without stating the IP rating, I smell b$ here....It's time companies should bend to the stupidity of its consumers by accurately underlining the differences between water resistance and water proofing. Do it in comic sans font, too, since basic science was too hard to memorize after high school.
I don't know what's worse, the fact Apple knows their top head competitor are releasing an LTE enabled watch but price it three folds over without that key feature, or the fact the "Definition of Value" argument is still used. It's as blank as saying hot and dry is the same as hot and humid.
I think the new advances are great and will be attractive to a lot of users but I've been using Moov Now for my swimming and sport tracking and it's been great so I probably won't upgrade to this one. Also, it's funny because the Nike band is really similar to the Moov Now band. I guess the holes really are great for ventilation! Check out Moov Now!
so Apple cant claim its waterproof without stating the IP rating, I smell b$ here....
DonAlduck, 07 Sep 2016Features and overall everything inside the watch is a big welcome, but that ugly design is sti... moreSame here Donald TRUck... Never loved the design. Will wait for a new design, even if it takes ages...
Features and overall everything inside the watch is a big welcome, but that ugly design is still disgusting IMO.
Spike1, 07 Sep 2016Why...not round!!!!????Well because some designer fell in love with an ugly pillbox on a string, and some nutty boss approved it...
Must say the watch looks cool and has great specs, although a round face would have been nice.
There is no way to bumb battery life with that new hardware, so i would not expect more than day of normal usage.
Only plus I see here is backward compatibility with strips and accessories so it should keep wallet safe a bit...
