    Picture iOS 2.2 multi watch swapping made perfect - how to wear both at once and still look "cool".

    I'm the fella who went with Apple as a tool for crippling arthritis - and still believe it is the best device for people with useless hands, and a need to access phone, text, email, and such when they can no longer handle a cell phone. (and it's so much cooler than that "I've fallen and can't get up" old lady.)

    I have a second Apple Watch arriving Monday (Couldn't get used to a right wrist watch in any format.) Since iOS 2.2 now allows for multiple watches paired to one phone? It's now a single button switch over to swap from one to the other (instead of 30 minutes of re-programming). I just found this brilliant idea on a watch forum. If I keep the "under" watch in power reserve mode? I can use my watch for pretty much every energy draining feature I now have turned off - phone calls, animated screens, etc...and when the battery hits say 20%? Just switch to the second one and carry on. (and since I make watch straps myself? I can cobble this together in no time...pun intended.) This changes everything.

    I'll assemble it in alligator and post photos once it's done. Freaking brilliant!

    What are you doing to drain the battery below 20% every day? Mine rarely touches 40%.

    Phone calls. They're battery killers. (I have about 10,000 insurance clients...my phone rings a lot. But, at least it's a different iPhone - I get Google voice texts and email notifications and return calls from my second cell with the caller ID blocked, so I'm not continuously interrupted all day.)
