“The Apple Watch, of course, really does do a lot more than any old wristwatch – and as I’ll explain below, the device has so far really changed the way I’ve been using my iPhone,” Chris Smith writes for BGR. “If you’re willing to invest in one, you’ll soon see that investment pay off. The Watch already saves me time each day the more I use it. It only takes me a few short seconds to check notifications and glance over weather, calendar, maps and health and other quick info without having to whip out my iPhone.”

“The Apple Watch is better than any other smartwatch I’ve tried,” Smith writes. “Apple did not compromise when it comes to design, and the images you see online don’t do it justice. You just have to touch and wear one to really understand. It’s light and comfortable and once you put it on and integrate it in your daily routine, you won’t want to take it off… I hate that the stainless steel model scratches, as mine did after only three days of use.”

“The Watch is a major technological achievement. The S1 chip inside it is a marvel of technology and future generations will make the device even more powerful,” Smith writes. “The thing I love most about the Watch is that it really freed me from checking the iPhone as often as I used to. I have everything I need coming in right on the Watch. The device will tell me when the important people in my life are looking for me, and offer me ways of quickly responding to their pings. It’ll tell me when I’m needed at work, and it’ll deliver updates on my health and fitness life on a regular basis. And of course, it will tell me what time it is. For everything else, entertainment included, I have an iPhone and a computer.”

MacDailyNews Take: In his full review, Smith recounts his dislike over “having to charge it when I least expect it…seeing the battery go off in the middle of a fitness session, at which point the device will stop tracking fitness data… [and] wondering whether there’s enough battery to wake you up in the morning, and worrying about packing a second charger.

The reason for this is that Smith is wearing his Apple Watch “all the time,” including “while sleeping.”

That’s just silly.

Take your Apple Watch off at night. That’s when you charge it. We’ve never ended a day, however long, with the Watch in the red. Apple Watch’s battery life is excellent. You simply charge it regularly and there’s no better time than when you’re asleep.

This is the daily Apple Watch use cycle that Apple intends: Use it while you’re awake, recharge it while you recharge, and you’ll never run out a power during a fitness session, worry about it not waking you up or about packing a second charger.
