The push notifications works well, some 3rd party apps takes time to load at times..

Still alot of 'firmware updates' to go..



the apple watch cases are pretty lame i feel..

do u snap a 'case' on your tag heuer so it doesnt look like one anymore ? lol
Exactly. Cases are ridiculous.

Agreed. I haven't seen a case or third party band that makes the watch look good lol.

I agree, case makes the watch looks hidious but I have no choice. I work in a construction environment and I use a case. I am sure Apple is going to come up with 2nd gen watches and I will be selling my 1st gen away once that happens. Here is how it looks :

I'm getting the Sports model primarily for the golf GPS apps and also to track my activities. Other than that, I am doubtful it will be a everyday watch for me .

That project uses a rather smart technique... But I'm scared the gold coating will not last.

Backup as in back the kickstarter project? Im not getting an apple watch, so the kit wouldn't be of use to me.

As for the coating, the creator mentioned that the kit contained more than enough to coat one watch so you can keep leftover to re-coat any part that has worn off. It wont be very durable btw, since it can be removed with polish for any warranty exchange

Have to agree on this, I bought 2 spigen ones and both made the watch looked like crap.

Maybe some day when Apple comes out with a car people will put cases on them too.

OT ... Tag Heuer just announced their new smartwatch. Cost around USD1400.
Now that's something that I seriously need to get.
