    So I swore for the longest time (after trying android wear for a while) that smart watches were silly gimmicks. Toys if you will. Relevant info here: I知 a giant child, and a tech geek.

    I bought a series 3 with cell last night. 🤣🤣

    What are the must have apps and such? What do you use your watch for?

    I mostly use mine for notifications (mainly text) and also tracking steps. I値l be using it for golf, and will be looking at fungolf and golf logix apps this year.

    I've been contemplating one as well but probably series 2. It seems like the notifications and GPS for golf would be nice.

    I used GolfLogix today and it worked remarkably well for F/M/B, but no club tracking info on the watch. So I scored with my phone and checked yardage痴 with my watch.

    Do you have to have the cell plan to use GolfLogix?

    No. You have to have your phone running GolfLogix for the Watch app to work right.

    I've been using mine for about 2 weeks now and am enjoying it. I wish there were some better watch faces available or more customization but I bought it mainly because I like wearing a watch and it works well with my phone. I find that the activity rings are helpful for motivation to get some daily exercise and the heart rate monitor is decent. Messages and notifications work pretty well on the apps I allow to do that. I have even taken a few phone calls when at home on the watch and it seems to work pretty well, but not something I would do in public. I do wish the charge lasted longer than 2 days however, thats all I can get out of it and thats not really using it to do much. I definitely am interested to see how Arccos works on it as well as affecting battery life.

    I still have a series 2 and trying to decide if I really 'need' a 3. I like not having to carry my phone around and can take calls just from the watch.

    I知 with you on the battery life. I壇 love to get two to three days out it.

    I knew going in that I was going to be charging it daily and this far it hasnt been an issue for me. I have no trouble getting through a day. Including streaming music and pretty heavily using it for notifications and such. I typically charge it every night while getting ready for bed.

    I went from the SS series 0 to the aluminum series 3. Love it and wear it all day every day.

    As an aside, I'm trying to figure out better golf apps to use with the watch. I am using Golfshot, and it's OK. ^^Looks like I should check out 18birdies.
