Default Apple watch

I finally gave in and bought myself the latest version of the Apple Watch, mostly to use for monitoring my exercise statistics. I still have to take my iPhone because it pairs with that to record my stats, but now that I can set the armband with the phone face facing backwards and not getting in the way of the inside of my elbow, I'm happy. My Walkmeter app will run on the watch as well, and will sit on top of the other apps while I'm out on my walk/run, so that's good too. It was a pain having to hold my phone in my hand and unlock the phone screen to access anything, and put it on the ground while I unlocked and locked my front gate.

I also like the stats screen which holds a lot of info, and more of my health stats go straight to the iPhone app.

So far, very happy.

It helps with the exercise.

One really good thing is that it is comfortable to wear. Having had a horrible experience in many facets with a fitbit I bought about five years ago, I have been very hesitant about getting the Apple watch, but it's very comfortable to wear.

But oh, it's a nag. It keeps reminding me to get up and move around for a minute every hour, and that is really good for me. I turned that on when it was offered and will keep it on. If it does nothing else, it will make sure I go to the toilet more often while binge-watching television series.

I have a device that does that as well, and it cost me nothing. It's called "bladder", and it can be VERY insistent.

Even so, I can still put it off longer than I should …

In all seriousness, you do want to be careful of that. Look up "urge incontinence". It seems to be a fairly common problem among female teachers who can't take "bio-breaks" as often as they'd wish.

And with that, before this gets too, too "bio-gruesome", I will shut up. ;-)

Thanks, Steve, I'll look that up.

And I agree, I need to stop this also.

I wonder if the Apple watch can be attached to a device that goes on the finger. Then you can have a record of your overnight pulse, peripheral oxygen, and respiration rate.
