    Hey guys, posting part 3 of my Smartwatch Series. Not WatchOS, but itís using it with my iPhone and may be interesting for you own comparisons with WatchOS. Let me know what you think.

    Good through review, Doug. Others should go into depth as you did.

    Many only show how you manually adjust a watch, and not use the app. You did show pairing, but not how to use the app.

    The app is minimal, everything I showed was everything you can do with the app, pretty much just setup, the watch faces, Tiles, and notifications.

    My next will be aftermarket watch faces with Watchmaker.

    Re: Wear OS full walkthrough

    I really don't like how some destructive actions, like removing tiles (~10:00 in your vid), don't require confirmation from the user.

    Not a fan of how Battery Saver (11:50) restarts the watch, either.

    Do you actually use the wrist gestures (21:00) to scroll through things? Looks like it would be awkward...

    25:30 -- Will we get to see what the keyboard looks like?

    31:40 -- Did I hear you right, that the Google Play store's Uninstall button doesn't uninstall the app?

    Never did try Watchmaker for faces for Galaxy Watch. Might try it out afterwards.

    Thereís only 7 tiles to choose from right now, and adding them back is so easy.

    The battery saver restart is annoying, but should really only be used when battery life is almost dead but you have a while before you can charge.

    I think that wrist gesture is more gimmick then function. I only used it twice, once to see what it was, the other to show in the video lol.

    Iíll definitely show the keyboard in the next video. Itís more responsive and accurate then expected. I didnít get deeper into it because with iPhone, there are really no features on the watch to use it beside password protection.

    That MUST be a bug, because when I tried uninstalling apps, it would take forever and the app was still there when it was done.

    Itís a really cool app, complicated as hell to figure out, but once you do, itís a great way to customize your watch.

    My point is, since these tiles are basically apps, the actions to remove them should follow the UI convention that's used almost everywhere else. Prompt the user for confirmation so that, if they mis-swiped and removed them by mistake, they won't have to go back out of that view and re-add them again.

    That (the Uninstall button in the store) MUST be a bug, because when I tried uninstalling apps, it would take forever and the app was still there when it was done.
    C'mon, Google. How long have they been making Android again?

    They arenít really apps though, you donít configure them, just add them. They more along the lines of info you would find in a widget, and itís so easy to add them back in.

    Thatís the thing that keeps me in the Apple ecosystem. There are always simple overlooked bugs that take forever to patch.
