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!

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

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.
