    All-rounder, but only for iPhone users

    Gert Wouters | 1 November 2017 | Automatically translated from Dutch

    • stability software
    • battery life
    • infinite possibilities
    • Screen turns on when it really needs to be.
    • quality glass of display
    • dated design
    • many health apps but no sleep tracker

    After two years of a Samsung Gear S2, I went to exchange my Samsung phone for Apple and the watch couldn't stay behind either. This is mainly because WatchOS supports many more apps.
    In fact, I use the watch as a remote control for my phone 80% of the time. This way you will always be notified with a very clear shock if some (WhatsApp) message, or telephone call or the like arrives. You can reply briefly to messages using a template. The funny thing is that those templates adapt according to the content of that message. It seems like that watch really gets your message.
    Although the device is not a 4G model, you can still accept an incoming call and make calls with your watch. You can hear the caller very clearly. Despite being in the open air, he also seems to have no problem with intelligibility. Cleverly made.

    If you have the intention to read the hour and you look at the watch, the display always flashes without error. This is another big difference with the competition. Professionally I am on the road a lot with the car. While turning the steering wheel, I hardly see that screen pop up. Read: battery saving.
    With my previous smartwatch, I had to charge daily because the screen popped up unnecessarily so often. During holidays that only became a day or 4. The cause should not be sought any further...

    If you start using things on your iPhone like TuneIn radio, the Watch automatically gives you the option to switch stations and adjust volume. Handy for in the car and while walking/cycling. A tap on your wrist and you're done.

    Why the Watch has supplanted the Gear S2 for me is for its navigation capabilities.
    As a walker you map out your route on "Maps", the navigation starts and by means of shocks on your wrist the Watch tells you whether you should turn left or right. Still learning to work/get used to it, but a great system.
    I also like to walk in (foreign) forests. ViewRanger topographic maps has been my helper for years, but you always have to pick up a phone to see which road you need to take next. That entire map is clearly visible on the Watch. Have a look, done. iPhone may remain in the pocket.

    I like to go swimming, but I don't do it well enough. With the Apple watch it is possible to keep an eye on the exact number of lanes with a swimming workout. It's amazing how that device can do it without GPS reception. If you stop 2 meters before the shore in the 25 meter pool, it is registered as such.
    Heart rate is recorded for every workout (walking, cycling, swimming,...). Even in the water it does that wonderfully.
    Are you going to take a sauna after swimming... turn off the watch, because the high temperatures of the sauna make it shut off. After cooling down, things start up again.

    Among those oodles of workouts that do exactly what you want them to, there isn't a single sleep tracker right now. Too bad, because they could implement this perfectly.
    Thus, the Watch goes off the wrist every night and I turn it off completely. The advantage: the battery lasts about 4 days without recharging.

    Still no drawbacks? Yes, classic at Apple: the glass of the display is of deplorable quality, just like with their iPhones. The bent edges are gradually starting to show small scratches from under the sleeve of the sweater and vest, etc. On that point, Samsung has done its glasses much better. That Gear S2 has been through a lot for 2 years and not a single scratch on the glass.
    In Apple's price range, I think something urgently needed to be done about this.
    Second disadvantage, personally of course, but where the design of the iPhone 6 to 8 is timeless, I think that watch box comes across as old-fashioned.
    Third disadvantage (perhaps also an advantage): they add such an idiotic magnetic disk as a charger. Always looking for how to confirm it again. Fortunately, there are plenty of docks to be found to insert that disc.
    Docked one can display a night clock. A very light tap on your bedside table and voila, a large green clock. Also personally, but when I want to check the time at night, I like a faint dark clock. With that thing you just put on a spotlight in the bedroom. So immediately wide awake. Worthless given that night clock.

    Not really a drawback for me: the watchfaces. You can customize some pre-installed faces with everything you want, but it's not pretty. So businesslike, so sober. With Android Wear and Tizen there are a lot of beautiful different watchfaces to download. This does not exist at Apple. Except for the funny Mikey Mouse face that comes standard on it, it's all pretty business-like. But as always: it does exactly what it's supposed to do.

    Once you have it, you won't want to be without it. Watch out

    Bram Wicherink | 30 March 2018 | Automatically translated from Dutch

    • You can be reached without having to take your phone out of your pocket
    • Very easy to operate
    • Electronic coach for sports activities, among other things
    • Fully customizable to your own taste
    • Amount of available applications
    • Reacting via the Watch is still somewhat limited

    You are looking for a smartwatch: an understandable choice. Since there are many on the market right now, you often don't know where to start. If I could give you one piece of advice, I wouldn't look any further than the Apple Watch if you have an Apple device. Curious why? Read on quick!

    Installation:
    Two weeks ago I got to close it in my arms - correction: on my wrist - the 42mm variant of the Apple Watch and I have not regretted it for a moment. You immediately notice that you have purchased a product from Apple: the appearance of the device is somewhat the same as that of an iPhone, but of course in a smaller form. Setting up and connecting to your iDevice is a snap. I chose to connect my iPhone to the Watch. You can get started within minutes. The cooperation between the iPhone and the Watch is immediately noticeable when the setup is complete: all applications that are installed on your iDevice are also included on your Watch, provided there is also an Apple Watch application for it.

    Receiving notifications:
    What I like most is the fact that you feel every notification you receive via your iPhone, as it were. You get a subtle vibration, so you immediately know that there is a new notification to which you can respond.

    Responding to notifications:
    Then we arrive at a point that I personally find a bit less strong: responding to notifications is not going well yet. You can only respond to a notification by voice, which the Watch then converts to text or possibly with a simple smiley (because a smiley sometimes says more than a thousand words :) ). Of course it is more than logical that a keyboard on such a small surface is not possible, only this could have been solved a bit better.

    To make calls with the Apple Watch:
    Calling is a big plus: you can have direct conversations via the Watch and this works just as well as with your phone, with the big advantage of course that you no longer have to take it out of your pocket!

    Sport and movement:
    You also regularly receive notifications when it is time to stand or move, so that you also keep thinking about that good intention for 2018 to continue to keep a healthy lifestyle. He also really tries to coach you and encourage you to do more exercise. A nice example of this is that it shows how many calories you burned yesterday, but that you can probably do better today! This way you stay motivated in a playful but above all fun way.

    Make it completely personal:
    One of the nicest features of this powerful device, I think, is making it personal: you can adjust a lot of things, from the clock to the application menu, so that it completely suits you.

    This beautiful watch helps me improve my health! R

    Mike | 12 March 2018 | Automatically translated from Dutch

    • Strap and watch feel very natural and are comfortable
    • Health functions are beyond expectations
    • Seamless connection with iPhone
    • Sleek and beautiful design
    • Max 2 days battery

    I am very happy with this purchase!
    I wanted to get a better grip on my health and sports activities and this beautifully designed smartwatch helps a lot with that. In addition to the visual stimulus, the Apple Watch also pushes messages to encourage you to achieve goals. Top! That's just the push I need every now and then. In addition, the watch also comes with proposals to adjust your goals in order to become healthier in the long term.

    I was also afraid that the connection with the Apple Watch would quickly drain my iPhone in terms of battery, but you don't have to turn on your Bluetooth separately! So that's no problem.

    Furthermore, the watch is lovely. Even wear it while sleeping.

    Finally, the only small minus. I use the Apple Watch a lot. And that costs battery. With a lot of use, it should be able to last for 48 hours. But I choose to charge it every morning to make sure it gets through the day. Charging is fast, so it's not a problem.

    I should have bought it much sooner!

    Nice piece of technology on your wrist, well worth the money
    • Long battery life
    • Motivation to move
    • Nice accessory
    • Many apps are still in their infancy

    Long doubted to buy an Apple Watch. Finally decided to buy one. First impression is good; battery lasts a long time (consumption is 30% per day), even when the Apple Watch is used intensively during exercise.

    However, some apps are still in their infancy. For example, you cannot yet create your own standard replies for Whatsapp, while you can for sending messages.

    It won't change your life, but you shouldn't look at it that way either. It is a beautiful piece of jewelry that you can style using unique straps and it is a handy tool for everyday activities (especially when playing sports).

    In short: recommended!

    • Quick and easy to use
    • Charge very quickly and the battery lasts a long time
    • You pay more attention to your health
    • If you have spotify you can't use the official app

    Now that I have an Apple watch I use my phone much less, so I often have a lot of battery left on my phone

    Top smartwatch
    • Beautiful design
    • Integrated heart rate monitor
    • Easy to operate
    • Still limited in apps

    Works perfectly with the iPhone. The connection always lasts and the battery lasts longer than expected. I'm on it for 2 days. Super easy to charge with the magnetic charger and can serve as a clock next to your bed.
