Apple Watch has abysmal battery life, features that work only half of the time, bugs in software and baffling UI choices.

      When it comes to watches, I mostly go for aesthetics, and smartwatches don't really do it for me on that front. Since most of the features are just duplicates of what a smartphone can do I'm not convinced the annoyance of overnight charging is worth the trouble.

        Apple watch owns all.
        1. With apps like Soundhound / Shazam you can id songs without having phone around.
        2. Voice call / sms / whatsapp
        3. Notification silent / tap no need to take out your phones.
        4. Can pay without internet.
        5. Navigation
        6. Health
        7. Tell time
        8. Unlock doors /garage / homehub.
        9. Walkie-talkie

        When you walk out of the door without your phone, no wallet, with just a AirPods in your ear.. you're all set.

        No one watch implements better than Apple watch. Thats why you see no android users talking about it.. because it simply bad on other platform... you rather get a budget android phone and strap it to your wrist.. that's how bad.

          just don't find them convenient and I find them as extra technology waste becoming obselete in 2-3 years. they make sense only if you have an active lifestyle and need to track regular workouts. otherwise,I prefer a classical watch that lasts fo 10-20 years.

They have improved so much the past year and their Fit Band is very good :) Design, battery, display. Comparable to the Mi Band :) you should look into it.

              A band is more than sufficient.
              If you want a watch to do everything your phone does, GET ANOTHER PHONE! It will be much cheaper and waaaay more useful, for the small price of carrying two phones.

                  My first Smartwatch was in 2007, Sony Ericsson MBW-100, had also the MBW-150, Live View, Sony smartwatch 1, 2x Sony smartwatch 2, Samsung gear S3 and Samsung Galaxy watch... both I still use.

                    Still using my Pebble Time though the battery life is getting shorter when connected to my phone.

                      Still rocking a mi band 4 that I barely use as a music controller or a f91w in black and gold because 80s.

                        I work with my hands and it sure is nice to see notifications quickly with out getting my phone out of my pocket. Also nice to track workouts and try to improve previous times. It's great for motivation.

                          I love my TicWatch Pro3. For me it's the sweetspot between the variety of apps and functions of a proper smartwatch and the battery life of a smartband. Plus the FSTN display is extremely useful

                            T56+. It can stay for more than a week without charging. I just love it's battery life and high quality display.

                                  Not sure into which category Garmin Forerunner fits tbh... it doesn't have apps but it's quite powerful still and I think it's the best device if practicing sports is concerned... 🤷‍♂️

                                        As long as I can customize its interface and change themes. As long as I can use music player for my local music. It is enough. Currently using Mi Band 6. Very durable. And cool. Long battery life too. And beautiful screen.
