Comments

Rudy vB: Hey, How can you resend a unsend heartbeat? I had no internet connection and tried to send a heart beat to someone. When I came home I cannot find a resend button or try again button....

Sky Is Falling: Met Brian at a In and Out Burger.. so impressive in person - now, I'm blown away by the editing, dialogue and overall presentation.. Brian, you are friggin' great!

Israel Garcia: Brian you've couldn't do any better review you hit everything right on, my wife purchase this for me and just like you said do I really needed.

Motivational Potato: i just meet brian tong really cool guy

Sean McClumsey: I can't find my broom.

Jason M: Great honest review. I've had my watch for two weeks now and feel similar about my experience. I am a runner and some of the integrated fitness features are nice to have for those reasons, But other than that when people ask me how I like it I tell them I love it but it's less of a necessity and more of a gadget play with. Hopefully there will be more development that makes the interface snappier and functionality more convenient over simply just pulling your phone out of your pocket

Joseph Blowington: A watch is an accessory that can never 5replaced by some new age digital gadget.   Analog will always be king.  Instead of laying down a grand on an iWatch that you might get 5 years out of if you're lucky, save up and buy a low end Rolex for 5 grand and you can pass it on to your kid, and his kid, and his kid.

ksmith610: Well, one thing that's kind of cool is that there is a pair of guns under those shirt sleeves! Lots of charisma and finesse in these reviews. Enjoyable.

mburke1211: While I think your review was solid in many regards, I do disagree on a couple of points. I've been wearing the watch for about a month.

In my opinion, your heart rate inaccuracy is primarily due to how loose you wear the device. While it may not take super accurate readings, my readings are within 5-10% of what I get from my chest strap monitor.

I use my watch frequently to reply to text messages. Siri is highly accurate for this purpose. When I'm active (i.e., kayaking), it's much easier to use my watch to reply than to take out my phone.

For those concerned about battery life, it's been a non-issue for me. I end a typical day with 40%+ life remaining.

Finally, the notifications are totally customizable to individual users tastes, so I think your point about intrusiveness is a non-starter. I find the notifications I've chosen to leave on very useful. I know, everyone has an opinion.

John Mays: I love apple and my iPhone and iPad are awesome but let's be real. I think we have been programmed to not ware a watch any more and let's face it, it doesn't take that long to pull my phone out. So not so excited about a watch. I will say it does look really cool better than any other smart watch but not enough to make me go out and buy one.

Christopher .Cruse: When we get independent apps I think that start to bring the game changer.  Though these apps will have use without the internet connection and have a logical use on a watch.  So far the most useful 3rd party app i've used is "Buy Me a Pie".  It's a simple grocery list app.  When you use the watch as you pushing around your cart you just lift your wrist and tap a selective item to cross out.

Ted Dibiase: Thanks Brian for saving me $$$.

Julian Okwu: Seriously? You've committed yourself to a review and you're not even wearing the watch correctly for it to function the way it's supposed to. Then you bash the fitness features and the accuracy of its heart rate sensor even though the watch is sliding up and down your arm? People call this a fair review because it's ultimately more negative than positive and that view is consistent with how you feel about the watch. To those of you who really want a fair and accurate review, this is not it.

Drag Racing Ninja: His watch has cracks at the edge of the glass and alot of scratches on the steal, im not paying 550 or more for a piece of shit like that that wears out over a few weeks!

xavi Bon: if you turned off most if not all notifications to your watch, then whats its purpose? 
tong, turn on playboy notifications thats all you need

Ebaad Needs Content: Was Brian really talking to his girlfriend

Tech1Tv: Good review, smartwatches are useless though.If i have a phone i don't need a watch

Tech by Anthony: I 100% agree on everything you said. Out of every Apple Watch video on YouTube this one is definitely true to what it really does and how you use it. I have the 42mm Apple Watch Space Gray Sport model. I am happy I did not get the other ones for more $$. Apple just needs to release more colorful and different bands because that is what really is going to make the watch, for its looks that is. I'm waiting for a black stainless steal milanese loop band.
