Apple Watch Series 2

Product Review

I have the Apple Watch 42 mm version series 2 in space grey and black. I also have an iPhone 7+ with the latest version of the iOS. If you do not have an iPhone 5 or better running iOS 10 then the Apple Watch is not for you. As per Apple’s usual packaging, the box is special and it comes with two band lengths, small and medium. If you have large wrists you can order the extra large band. I have two holes left on my medium band.

Setup was easy. Just use the app on your phone to pair it and you are done. Of course you can start to customize it with different watch faces and so on. I use the activity monitor that showed me the Time, Calories burned, and Standing time. If I do not stand or move it vibrates and dings to tell me to stand up.

I then started walking and it was recording my steps. I use a Withings Scale and Blood pressure cuff that work with the Withings app on my phone. The watch will synchronize my steps to the Withings app and also the Apple Health app. On the watch when cycling I use the Workout app, and select Outdoor Cycle. It will then record all sorts data like speed, distance, elevation and my route just to mention a few things. If I wanted to listen to music I could with the wireless AirPods. But that is not my thing. There is also an option for an indoor workout, good for the gym in the winter. Battery life is amazing in that I charge the watch every couple of days. It tends to use about 30% of the battery per day.

I am also sharing my data with my staff and we have a lot of fun with it. When I cut the grass with a regular lawnmower I tend to burn more calories than any of the staff. Good thing for me as I can afford to reduce some. It’s working by the way. It is a real motivator every day in that it gives you immediate feedback of what you are doing.

I never thought I would wear a watch again but after 25 years without one I can say that this is a real benefit to my life and health.
