Most used features on Apple Watch?

Thinking of getting one but have a feeling I might not get a lot of use out of it for the price point. Will probably make better decisions if any Apple Watch owners share their experience! Thanks

What makes you want to buy it in the first place? I think when we understand what your intended use for it we can give you better advice.

I mainly use it for notifications, controlling music, cycling, heart rate monitoring, activity, checking weather and Pokémon Go.

I prefer and always use my AW for Apple Pay, unless I'm not wearing the watch.

Battery life for the first gen Apple Watch is not so good but in Series 2, it's a big improvement.
