Hmm, What Is Apple Doing?


#1587

I’m more interested in fitness and health monitoring. Music is a plus.

Fitbit dropped to $6 range. Guess not a good idea to buy a Fitbit

What’s the killer app on Apple Watch? What’s the top 3 reasons you want to wear it?


#1589

Everybody wear it for different reasons. Other than telling time and ad hoc phone calls, my use cases are:
a. Apple Pay
b. Alarm
c. Notifications (from message, calendar, …)
d. Stock price
e. Health apps such as breathing, walking, standing up…
f. Weather
g.Turn2turn navigation

I don’t listen to music with the Apple Watch.
Lately, I have seen many people wearing Apple Watches and AirPods.

How far can you keep your phone from your watch? Can the watch function without
iPhone?


#1591

First - Around the whole house, guess is 20-30 feet.
Second - My watch is the first version. The latest version can function without the iPhone.

After losing my iphone two times, and recovered later, I purchased Apple watch and Airpods. OMG, they are too good for me ! This is a major change in apple product.

First, Apple watch has two models one with CIM card and another without SIM card. The w/o sim connects through bluetooth and limited distance.

The other one, with SIM works as a clone iphone which I bought. Now, I switch off my iphone and use only apple watch with airpods.

I can not explain the usage, but they are too good for me that I do not want to get rid off. The apple watch software needs improvement, but that is fine as of now.


#1593

Do you need a separate phone service for Apple Watch with SIM card? I like to have a watch with good independence and a SIM card, but it make no sense to pay 2 phone bills


#1594

Apple watch with SIM card needs data plan. There is an additional $10/month and this SIM will have same iphone number (clone one) and you can use this apple watch as if it is iphone except the small 42 mm size.


#1595

That’s decent. Does it accept text message as well?


#1596

It is replica of iphone, you can do anything iphone can do.


#1597

Apple is rebuilding Maps from the ground up

Are you slumming with an android or have an iPhone?


#1600

Slumming is best done with iPhones.

In Woodside that status signal is a kitchen coop in the front yard…In most of the Valley I am sure a Tesla indicates wealth… An IPhone means nothing…


#1602

Bullish sign for Tsla when even @Elt1 said something like that.


#1603

You can’t carry a Tesla inside a building or post picture of your house everywhere.


#1604

I am staying away from tesla. Not because i am not wealthy, but always had something against dumping so much on a depreciating asset. Probably that’s why i am not super wealthy :slight_smile: maybe should force myself into buying a tesla. fake it till you make it.


#1605
  1. you should buy Tsla the stock NOT Tesla the car

  2. your biggest depreciating asset is your primary residence.


#1606

A Tesla is a status symbol.Comparable to the chicken coop mentioned…Not my thing. For people that are insecure about their status…like Mercedes used to be.
