Looking forward to seeing what this next Watch revision will look like. I've been thinking about getting one for a while now.
I got on board with the 5 (didn't care for the not-always-on screens on the previous gens), and it's been outstanding as a fitness tracker and fitness motivator.

Man, these production values are so slick. There's no way they ever go back to live conferences, is there?

Production levels are off the chart....

Edit: my Garmin already does this. Nice, Apple

Edit: I hope they improve metrics for exercises, it's pretty poor right now. Also, there's no way to set HR zones or do interval workouts.

They just keep adding sensor functionality to this thing. Is there any other watch/consumer health wearable device remotely as sophisticated?

Always-on altimeter. Combined with the blood oxygen sensor, this is great for hiking.

Holy shit, this is huge depending on pricing. Smartwatches for kids are garbage, but this could be a game changer.

the series 6 is nice, the blood oxygen sensor is really helpful, but i'm still content with my 4. i probably won't upgrade my watch until the watch itself can do things like stream podcasts/music without the need for the phone to be in bluetooth range. i do like the new bands though, i might pick one up.

i like apple products, but i would never pay my own money for them because of how expensive they are.

no power adapter with apple watch
i can understand not doing it for the phones, because those chargers are everywhere, but it seems like with the watch that's a required accessory. did i miss something? are they only excluding the brick or just the wireless charging cable?

I figured the Apple Watch SE was going to be replacing the 3, but the 3 is actually staying around at the same price it was already at. Not even a price drop, that's kinda dated. But the SE is decently cheaper than the 6 with most of the features you'd want.

Whoa, neat. Fitness+ workouts on Apple TV/iPad/iPhone synced to your Apple Watch with real-time metrics.

Apple One Family looks like a damn good deal.
As someone who pays for Spotify and Apple TV Plus, I feel like I should give it a look as I could pay the same and get more. I like the price but I am not going to switch to Apple for my daily driver. Can anyone comment on Apple music for Android?

Apple is cashing crazy from COVID-19 lol, along with the wall street shills benefiting from lots of old people dying.

I bet they just hope everyone in the US is anti-vax and the pandemic can last forever.

Yes! This better mean Touch ID is back in iPhones, too. I can finally upgrade from my 7 Plus.
