Day 1: Apple Watch battery was draining at an alarming rate. The location services icon was active on my phone which makes me think Runkeeper or Strava were running all day. After a reboot of the phone and the watch last night, the location services icon wasn't running anymore. I did get to try it out on a run yesterday. Worked just as I'd hoped. Quickly told me the pace and distance while allowing me to change tracks or search through my music on the run.
Day 2: Battery life is much improved today. The location services indicator is off and battery life is at 87% after 8 hrs of standby and 50 minutes of usage. The watch is super comfortable and feels very high quality. I think it is still mostly a parlor trick at this point other than functioning as a portal for running and cycling. The dictation for a quick text is very accurate though a hair on the slow side. It might be quicker to just pull out your phone and type in the text. The canned responses make more sense than custom responses. Since my car doesn't have navigation, I'm going to try the nav feature on the drive home today to see how practical it is in the car. As far as glancing at incoming texts as you drive, it works great. The required two hand operation means you won't be doing much input to the watch on the fly while driving. +Toshi Clark #apple #watch #sport
