  1. I’m using the original Apple Watch since day one. I never use apps to be honest. I only use the timer, and check how many degrees it’s outside.

  2. Wow they really undersold the new OS during their keynote. I am much happier now that they added so many refinements. BUT still no watch face store is just sad 🙁 At least let us add more complications and let us change the color on the Photos watch face so we can customize our own face even more :'(

  3. So all Watch can messure VO2max now with watchOS 4? If I remember right the sensors are build in but they didn’t used them. Great news if it really works on all the watches.

  4. Lol the pairing one I found and put it on macrumors.i know i probably wasn’t the first one. But it was a fun find. Not many people restore their devices on betas I do.

  5. Hi, Jeff! I like it, very useful changes! Please tell me what series of watch are you using first or second? I hope new the new interface is not gonna lag so much on my watch series 1
