    Still Square still garbage still giving us things that we don't need versus what we do and promising it can do things that through an update which probably won't happen so just looks like a garbage Square Cheapo sports watch that you used to be able to buy off of wish from China in and around the time that the first Galaxy watch came out. These watches are starting to look just as garbage every release just as their phones are.

    It has been kind of almost 2 years now Amazfit bip has been having all time on display at only $100 and with 25 days battery backup.

    This idiot watch is catching up now with 18 hours backup. The battery is the only biggest reason for me to not even consider this watch.

    I’m still in love with my series 4. I personally don’t care much for an always-on display or sleep tracking.

    I don't see any big differences with the watch's I don't really see a point? What's changed a clock ? Thats it and a emergency call ? That's it ? I don't see that been worth it. Stick with the series 3.

    I’m probably the minority here, but I’m disappointed that the Watch 5 still comes with a USB-A magnetic charging cable and 5W adapter. Sure, the 18W is bigger, but at least you’d have an extra fast charger for your iPhone. Plus, you’d be able to easily charge your Watch out of the box on your iPad Pro and/or MacBook.

    ok, Apple says 18-hour battery life so if I really need the compass for backpacking or hiking I have to pack more weight ( Portable Charger) yeah I know Apple isn't an outdoor company and it shows.

    Rumour has it that apple watch series 24 will be grafted directly into your wrist. The product will be on sale in newly opened apple stores in hospitals. 🤔

    previously in Apple: customers stick with their old watches and don't upgrade; the watches are too tough.
    yesterday: presents new Apple Watch with always-on display.

    If you need to know what direction you’re in just look toward the sun. It always rises in the east and sets in the west. Around high noon you’ll get a general idea of which direction you’re lookin.
