    When You Got Your Apple Watch.....

    When you received your Apple Watch, did you find yourself wearing only the Apple from that point forward OR did you tire of it eventually and revert back to your conventional watch (auto, quartz, etc.)?

    Maybe you alternate?

    Re: When You Got Your Apple Watch.....

    I wear my first-gen AW all the time except for:

    - Going to the office -- but that's only a couple days per week. No personal electronics on-site. I wear it during working hours while I'm teleworking from home, though.
    - When I don't want to be interrupted by anything at all, or when I dress up and pretend I'm "classy", whatever that means.
    - When it's charging, which only needs to be done for an hour or so.

    I won't wear it when going swimming or to the sauna. Sometimes I wear my other watches at home just for fun; and when I'm at my computer, all my notifications come in on the computer anyway, so the AW isn't all that necessary (neither is the phone, for that matter).

    Longer writeup here, which I posted almost a year before my current job:

    Basically wear it outside of where I live and others inside.

    It's been my primary since I got it, I rotate my others from my collection from time to time, but I find it so valuable for calendar reminders and notifications that I actually feel phantom taps sometimes when I am not wearing it.

    I wonder if, when I get a 7750-based watch, will I feel the famous "wobble" and think that someone is texting me?

    Re: When You Got Your Apple Watch.....

    Thanks guys for the insights (and the link). Great write up.

    I am attempting to get either the Apple or the new Fenix 5. I had a Fenix 3 and and Apple Watch (1st edition) before, but kept neither long enough to appreciate them.

    I do a lot of weight room workouts but really enjoy walking on the weekends with the wife. Will the Apple Watch GPS give me mileage info and a map to see where I've been?

    You guys aren't bothered by frequent charging? Probably something I would get used to quick enough I suppose.

    DougFNJ...do even the g-shocks not see much wrist time any more?

    Thanks again for letting me bounce these questions off you guys!! :)

    The Series 2 will log a map for you via its built-in GPS; the Series 1 and first-gen (informally nicknamed "series 0") will need the phone to record location. Either way, you'll be able to see it in the Activity app on the phone later. Exporting map data from Apple's format is a little awkward if you want to share it via third-party services like Garmin or Strava, but sharing among other AW users should be easy.

    Recharging it is part of my routine now. I drop it on the charger for a while in the evening, then put it back on my wrist before I go to bed. I'm not tracking my sleep -- I already know I've got some sleep apnea -- but I use it as my alarm clock. The way it taps my wrist, and its sonnerie-like "ding," reliably wake me up without annoying the hell out of me like a buzzing bedside alarm.

    [adding on] It's 9 PM now, and the battery is at 61%. I think I last had it on the charger yesterday evening. Because I'm going to the office tomorrow and will be wearing a regular watch, I won't bother putting it back on the charger until tomorrow morning.

    I have far too many watches, mainly mechanicals. I do notice that I wear my first generation AW at least 2 days per week, making it my most worn watch, and that is up against Damasko, Zenith, Rado etc.

    Wow! I didn't realize that battery was that good BarracksSi. I think I could get used to the charging if I give myself a chance.

    If I pick up the series 2, when I use the GPS will it show mileage? For instance, when I see the map will it show me with a mark of some sort where mile 1 was and then where I completed mile 2. Guess that's what I am looking for.

    MrDragon007....good to hear you get some wrist time with yours. I have a number of watches as well.

    Re: When You Got Your Apple Watch.....

    Heh heh Worker, I sold most of them off and keep a few in the arsenal for specific duties. Frog is my beach watch, Rescue is my yardwork watch, my Speed Watch is my collectible.

    The GPS does show mileage, but it will not show where you hit the mileage. Here is how it all looks....
