This is my second Apple Watch, and well has it been great? Well, let’s find out.
This watch significantly improved over the first generation with a faster processor and better Bluetooth. The ability to track flights of stairs climbed and have LTE connectivity. In addition, this was the first watch to feature a cell phone on your wrist.
So it was a relatively quicker watch than the first one I had.
It started well.
Yes, this was a step up from my first one; I opted not to get the cellphone option. Just more money every month. It was nice. It was doing the things I wanted it to do. I picked this up on Nov. 22, 2018. Yes, that was about five years ago. What the heck? That has been a long time since I have had this watch.
It worked well for a long time, and then issues started.
Here are some of the problems I have found with the Apple Watch.
- Updates failed.
- Yes, the updates would fail, and I would have to unpair my watch and start over. Sometimes it took a couple of hours.
- It started to get memory full. When I never had any music or photos on the watch. But that is where they said my memory was.
- Due to the issues above, I have to unpair it every couple of weeks.
The last software update was 8.7.1, which my watch is sitting at.
It is a good watch; it does have its issues. But the headache of the updates failing all the time. You don’t have to worry about that now. I have to deal with the you are out of memory. I have to unpair and pair again.
Time for a new one
I think it is time for a new watch; the wife, on the other hand, says no. You have enough tech. Series 3 has been good, but I have had issues over the last two years. So, it is time for a new one. But I guess it is time to wait for the blood sugar reading. Hopefully, it will be soon.
