⌚️ Apple Watch

One of my favorite Apple gadgets. It’s something I wear every day and I use to check time or weather, track my fitness, listen to podcasts or audiobooks, even make phone calls and send messages.

More than a year on the move or how Apple Watch rings help me stay in shape

Just yesterday I crossed the 400-move mark on the Apple Watch which basically means that for 400 days straight I managed to move enough that the Apple Watch classified it as “fitness day”. So I’ve been on the move for more than a year now, despite the pandemic, to hopefully stay in shape and lose some weight. It worked. And here’s how I did it:

⌚️ Apple Watch series 5 review - the always-on screen is a huge deal!

Apple Watch series 5 review - the always-on screen is a huge deal!

Last year both me and my wife upgraded the Apple Watch series 2 to 4. We skipped series 3 altogether as we were waiting for the cellular connection from our operator and it took them two years to figure that out. This year when Apple announced series 5 with practically nothing new… but just an always-on display - we had two different reactions - my wife thought “whatever” and I was like “finally!”. Now after more than 2 months with it, I have to say I totally stand by my first reaction. The “always-on display” is a huge deal, here’s why:

5 things I love about the Apple Watch series 4 after just a day of using it!

When the new Apple Watch series 4 was announced I knew it was time for me to upgrade. I’ve been using the Apple Watch since its official launch, and over the last 2 years I’ve had a Nike+ series 2 watch and I was pretty happy with it. I haven’t switched to series 3 because I was hoping that in Europe finally we’ll have an option to enjoy the watch with cellular connection.

⌚️ 👨🏼‍💻 Apple Watch Only – a day in my life with the Series 2 Nike Apple Watch

Monday, December 19, 2016 /applewatchonly/

Apple Watch Only – a day in my life with the Series 2 Nike Apple Watch

I bought my first Apple Watch in May 2015, right after its world release. Even though the first version of the watch wasn’t perfect – both the software and hardware left a lot to be desired – I saw a huge potential in this product. It later became my gadget of the year. I just really loved the way I could access lots information “straight from my wrist.” Today, after a year and a half, WatchOS 3 and Apple Watch Series 2 are available, meaning that the potential has increased significantly! In this post I want to show you how much impact this device has on my life in a simple day-to-day scenario.

Apple Watch 2.0 and thoughts after 4 months wearing it

I’ve been wearing an Apple Watch every day for the last 4 months since I un-boxed it and set it up. I quickly fell in love with it and now that the major upgrade to its operating system is out, the watchOS 2.0, I think I can honestly say what I think about this gadget and if after all these months I’m keeping it.

🎬 ⌚️ 📽 Apple Watch Q&A with Space Grey unboxing and Nozbe for Watch demo - Productive! Show #96

Tuesday, July 14, 2015 /applewatch-qa/

Unboxing on Periscope again, this time with my personal review of the Apple Watch as I’ve had it for 1,5 months. I’m giving my “old” Apple Watch to my wife as I’m unboxing and getting the new Space Grey 38mm one. I’m a fairly short guy with small wrist, so 38 is a lot better for me than the 42 watch - I tried both sizes in the Apple Store. In this video I take viewers questions and demo some Watch apps, like also our very own Nozbe app.

Question: Did you get an Apple Watch? Which one? What do you think?

Please post your comments below, thanks!
