    Walkie-talkie function sounds interesting.

    Also:
    https://www.apple.com/apple-events/june-2018/

    Or download the keynote as a podcast:
    https://itunes.apple.com/us/podcast/...413028137&mt=2

    WatchOS 5 segment starts at around 1:03 (it's over two hours in total; they cover macOS, iOS, watchOS, and tvOS). Kevin Lynch isn't yet the showman that Federighi is, but that's fine.

    WatchOS 4 already has Yoga and Hiking workouts, but Kevin points them out as if they're new. I wonder if they've either changed them or brought them to the front, out of the "Other" category, so you can pick them more easily.

    Still no jump rope workout, pfft.

    I like to think that Walkie Talkie solves the problem of people talking over each other.

    The little “ding” that Walkie Talkie uses means that we wouldn’t have to end our transmissions with “Over”, too.

    Not me. I’ve only got one AW.

    Rule number one of beta software: Don’t install it on your daily-use device.

    WatchOS 5/Beta

    Just downloaded watchOS5 beta 2 last night.

    Working fine except for a glitch I encountered during a swim workout. Hopefully it was a one time issue (see screenshots). At the end of the day, my calories and heart rate was logged and transferred, but the watch never logged my sets/actual cals/etc

    Anyone else experiencing other glitches?
