But why? Can you imagine trying to type on that thing? You'd be better off resurrecting a real motorazr or a BB Pearl.
My logic is infallible. Resistance is futile.

Meh. The cellular Apple Watch would do fine for me for not wanting to lug a phone around.
I'm actually really warming up to the idea.
A massage doesn't always have to lead to sex, but if it doesn't then you're doing it wrong.

It's not all it's cracked up to be.

Oh, I'm sure that it is nowhere near the usefulness of a phone. But if all I'm wanting is for the wife to be able to text me then it'd have me covered. Which really is about 60% of my phone use right now...

The other 40% is porn, and I have no illusions of getting that on the watch. Though it is nice to be able to track the "workout".

Falling a couple of calories short of your daily goal is as good a reason as any to have a quick wank, I quite agree.

Those aren't my goals, those are the phone's goals. It fails daily.

And as for watch as phone... it's pretty irritating when the darksky app can't get weather information because my phone isn't close. It's also irritating that it takes a long fucking time to load weather data when the phone is close.

And responding to texts with one of Apple's six canned responses doesn't really spark joy. That weird 3D heart got old before I sent it. And using Apple Watch's messages app makes me feel like Snapchat has a more intuitive interface for responding to messages.

And the speakerphone part where you can make two way calls and the whole room can hear you and the person you're talking to? Awesome.

I also love it when bending my wrist activates Siri. Nothing is more irritating than straining to fasten something in a hard to reach place and having Siri say, "What? I didn't catch that." Thinking I could outsmart this device, I reversed the watch so the crown is on the other side. Now, when I look at the watch to see what song is playing, my shirt sleeve invariably adjusts the volume.

I wish I could turn Siri off.
I turned off the emergency calling because I once called 911 while riding my motorcycle. The gloves trigger Siri every day.
I wish I could train it or just plain tell it to not record activity at certain times. My commute via the same said motorcycle, to and from work, registers more than 3/4 of my days required activity.
I’ve got custom responses for texts. They’re fine.
I wish it would make up its mind on when it would show notifications. Sometimes on the Mac. Sometimes in the phone. Sometimes on the watch. Some 2FA notifications via SMS only ever show on my phone for some reason. They never reach another device.
The calendar is almost always out of sync. Heaven help me if someone changes a meeting invite.
I only ever do speakerphone if I’m alone or someone else needs to participate. Otherwise I just won’t take the call if I can’t do it privately. This is where the AirPods have been golden. They’re easy to keep on me. I can answer with speaker and typically have a pod in before the other person realizes. I can do this because I only ever use my AirPods with the phone. When I also use them on a Mac then I never know what they’re gonna do. So they only ever connect to my phone and they meet expectations on connection speed and reliability.

Still, I watch people on their Android watches and they’ve just got different pain points.

I am impressed with both my phone and watch with how far I can throw them without breaking them. I get temperamental with them. More than most folks.

But it does help more than it hurts. So I do like it.

I also realized that a lot of my problems on the watch were due to me manually curtailing location services. Dark Sky was a huge source of frustration. It just wouldn’t work. Then I granted it location access whenever it wanted and it magically started working. Whatever.
