I use this on any long-haul trip. It has a carabiner that I connect to my backpack and use the Apple 1’ charging cable to connect to an Anker battery pack.

For anyone who doesn't need this level of protection or only needs it temporarily as protection against scratching or scuffing I bought a couple of Under Armour wrist sweat bands which do a great job and don't look out of place. I keep one in my pocket book for when I might need it.
They're mens but fit my wrists snuggly and are thick and washable.
Lol! Thanks! It’s a Kavu Rope Bag! I take it literally everywhere. It was hard to track down the color but I got it here on Amazon!
Apple needs to release just the "hockey puck" part of the charger, like this, but with a female Lightning port, and a keychain with a male Lightning shaped jack that has side pins to keep the puck from falling out, similar to the old 30-pin connectors.
Everyone who uses an Apple Watch has to be using an iPhone, so why not make an Apple Watch charger with a female Lightning port, or even a male connector like the Apple Pencil, so that the Apple Watch can charge from the iPhone?
Archer Watch Straps - Canvas Watch Bands for Apple Watch | Multiple Colors, 38/40mm, 42/44mm https://www.amazon.ca/dp/B082MSY7N1/ref=cm_sw_r_cp_api_i_XyzgFb1D29AJ5
Archer Watch Straps, found them on Amazon. They make them in a few different materials and a ton of different colours. Mine is the canvas, and was about half the price of the Product Red bands from Apple. I’m quite pleased with it. The red case is a Spigen.
Indigo sport loop on Amazon. Hibiscus is also (slightly less than) half price.
I couldn’t tell from pictures exactly how purple or how blue it was. In the end, I think it’s too purple for my tastes. But, maybe this picture will help other people.
Its a protective case. If you don’t want the aluminum frame to be scratched.
Dude get an Apple Watch ankle strap for basketball! That’s what I got and I just keep it under my sock and it tracks everything normally.

Naw. The purchased one is cheaper and it's made of TPU so it's soft and flexible.
I printed on in PLA and was always worried that it would scratch something.
Plus I have to say that there are better stands - the watch sometimes doesn't connect with the magnet.
This Spigen stand gives a much more reliable connection to the charger and it's only $8.
I sent in feed back (https://www.apple.com/feedback/watch.html) about the change in feature. I never had battery life issues with 1.0, and am rather disappointed with the change. Really hard to get a valid record of heart rate if it only records the resting heart rate.
Mind that this is US Amazon… And the price has gone up to $14… I got it on an Amazon lightning deal for less than $10. I used it on a short weekend get away and will have it over the holidays for a couple of weeks… You use it with your USB charger so basically this is just a USB magnetic link for your watch to any charger of your choice. It charges very very slow mind you, but I almost prefer that because it will still be charged overnight and that way it does not overheat as I’ve heard some third-party models will.

Pretty much an Apple thing. Famously, it's something Steve Jobs picked up from his Father.
> Paul Jobs was a mechanic, good with his hands and intelligent with his work, which largely focused on cars and then constructing metal parts for laser assemblies in Silicon Valley.
> “I thought my dad’s sense of design was pretty good,” Jobs told Isaacson, “because he knew how to build anything. If we needed a cabinet, he would build it. When he built our fence, he gave me a hammer so I could work with him.”
> Fifty years after the fence was constructed, Jobs showed it to Isaacson, still standing and recalled a lesson about making things of quality that he learned from his father. Touching the boards of inside of the fence, he said that “He loved doing things right. He even cared about the look of the parts you couldn’t see.”
> He said that his father refused to use poor wood for the back of cabinets, or to build a fence that wasn’t constructed as well on the back side as it was the front. Jobs likened it to using a piece of plywood on the back of a beautiful chest of drawers. “For you to sleep well at night, the aesthetic, the quality, has to be carried all the way through.”

"upcycled a Huawei watch box as an Apple watch charger".
"repurposed a Huawei watch box as an Apple watch charger"
Plain old English:
"used a Huawei watch box as an Apple watch charger"
Regardless, I think it looks pretty cool, although I'm too lazy to deal with that everyday. I just slap my watch on a $10 Apple Watch charging stand for 30 min a day and call it done.
I use Skinomi screen protectors because I don’t want to be like one of the many people who post in this sub every single day saying “I scratched my screen after just 4 days”
Your welcome :)
EDIT, let me add more info/review. YES these work.
I'm even able to ride my Motorcycle at 70mph and they still stay on it's insane.. i Run with them, do everything and here's the best part, with these things on they don't hurt your ears anymore.
So your next question probably is.. well how do you carry these around? Asking the important questions people.
I've also got an answer for that, I use THIS (it's awesome because it keeps everything together for me on my car keys.
Some figures to put things in perspective:
---Moto 360 sold 500K in all of 2014
---Pebble sold 700K in all of 2014
---LG sold 420K in all of 2014
---Samsung sold 1.2M in all of 2014
Apple has so far sold over 7M since release

I ordered this band. I am currently deployed in Iraq with my Army Aviation unit and this has held up to a lot of abuse. I feel qualified and obligated to deem it as “military-grade”.

I almost bought that exact one as my “fancy/date-night” band. Lol.
I don’t think it’s that bad, but I wasn’t in love with it either. I felt like my fancy options were limited as it were.
I ended up buying these bling bands to add to my sport band. Really really love them!
And this fancy one for date night band which looks really nice and matches the rose gold perfectly.
I got this one about a week ago and it worked well for me. I had a lightning charger one for years before and it was metal so I assumed this one would be but it’s unfortunately plastic. I should have done research and I would have gotten the one by “Sokos” on amazon because it’s aluminum and $17 more probably would have been worth it. But I can’t speak for the Sokos one since I don’t have it. The Conido one linked above uses a USB-C for power to the wireless charging and came with a lightning for the AirPods, you must supply your own watch charger. The Qi is adjustable for the different phone sizes and charges in portrait and landscape. This is my first wireless charger so I don’t have anything to compare it to, but it does seem to be slower than lightning which is fine for me because I only charge over night.
Both my boys got these last year

I agree with OP on the reversibility. Amazon product page for watch band shows the pins on the outside in order to reverse. It does seem like a last minute addition to the band, though.
Sorry to butt-in, I know y’all are over here being insufferable dinks at each other, but the honest answer is, I occasionally toss my link bracelet in a jewelry cleaner. The watch itself gets the occasional pass with an alcohol wipe and a microfiber cloth.
It’s fine that you wear your watch in the shower, but don’t kid yourself that it’s getting “cleaned.”

It's a Platinum Leather band
Edit: eBay seller appeared to have sold out. I found it on Amazon for the same discounted price HERE.
Not OP, but printed a generic dock that fit the stock charger for $5 at the library. A similar one can be found on amazon for $11. They both do the job well.

Probably but who knows.
I'd like to think we (as humans) will be able to use the computational power we have to do something more important than find new ways to incite ad clicks. There are a lot of people who come from interesting backgrounds and that have a lot of money funding work on extending the human life.
One of these people is Peter Thiel, in his book Zero to One he has some interesting discussion on the reasons we die. He breaks it into the macro (world/society level events), micro (local car accident) and microscopic (cancer + other hard stuff). If you cure micro theory is most people could live about 2000 years before some other cause eventually catches up.
I'm not saying any of this will work but it's more likely than stumbling around in the woods looking for some fountain.
No one of those is a 42mm while the other is a 38mm. They've been scaled to look like they are the same size which is why it looks weird.
Compare for yourself:
Exactly the same size buttons.
This happened to me, though I caught the watch. A screw fell out and the lug came off. Now I tighten the screws once a week. You can also try using loctite, but I’d still get in the habit of checking them.
It was this band. https://www.amazon.com/dp/B016F00CAQ/ref=cm_sw_r_cp_api_rqxRBbQS6NBAZ
Because posting it here doesn't actually solve anything, so if people don't share your problem, it's just clutter. It's why /r/Apple has already banned technical complaints or support questions.
Send a note to Apple watch's feedback team instead.
"Any activity performed at the level of a brisk walk or above is considered exercise. And Apple Watch keeps track of how much you do each day, even when it’s not in the context of a dedicated workout. You close the Exercise ring when you reach the globally recommended 30 minutes of exercise per day. And you don’t even have to do it all at once, which means you’re more likely to fit it into your day."
I am in the same boat with spotify, I used this app https://freeyourmusic.com/ to transfer my playlists yesterday. It was worth paying for the upgraded version that does more than 10 songs. It matched 95% of the songs I transferred.

So I know this won't be for everyone but browsing amazon I came across this and figured it'd work great for me. I love the look of leather bands but wearing them gives me some skin irritation problems. The material is super soft and flexible. Fits great and really comfortable. Thought I'd share for anyone else interested.
HERE it is. Came out to $11 with shipping and took a week to get here in FL.
Exactly what u/rajrdajr said, without a developer account ($100 a year) you can still sideload apps but they expire rather quickly. You're going to want to use AltServer (https://altstore.io/) if you'd like to keep sideloaded apps for longer, but I'm not sure if it works for Apple Watch apps?
That's weird. Apple's press release only mentions b and g.
It struck me as a glaring omission. Wonder which one is right.
I feel the state of the app is as intended. this way there is a lot more reason for consumers to pick up the Pokemon Go Plus accessory that basically allows to have it run in the background.
always seems like one brand's will disappear and then get replaced with a brand with an entirely different name selling the same exact bands in a few days. the newer solo loops seem like the more popular knock-offs these days, but i searched and still found a few sport loops like these.
Thanks! It’s the amBand off amazon, super comfortable!

Well then I will add a third to the recent PSA.
Owned this Leather Band from Amazon for the first two months after buying my Space Grey Nike+
I too was a lucky individual in that one evening as I reached and pulled to take it off, the one end let loose similar to the picture above. Mine fell onto a bed and then the carpet so no harm was done. I also inspected mine regularly and didn't notice the band looking especially weak, so yes please be careful.
It has been mentioned many times on this sub. It’s really great and doesn’t collect dust in your pockets which is a common issue with the other ones on Amazon. Had to wait almost for a couple of weeks because it ships from China but it was worth it, I love it.
I ordered these dot covers on amazon : https://www.amazon.com/dp/B076DL3X2Z/ref=cm_sw_r_cp_api_312yAb3D3AMDK
The red dot has started to grow on me maybe a little bit but I’d still prefer it wasn’t there on my SSSB S3. I had a couple issues getting the stickers off the paper and ruined one , 2nd one went on ok. It’s not 100% perfect but it’s almost impossible to notice. These things are way over priced but I wanted to try them out.
I bought this Optima Band Organizer off Amazon after another poster on here showed theirs off. At first I thought I had just enough bands to fill it, when I realized that it had a whole other side hidden behind a separator panel!
I have a rose gold traditional link watch band from amazon. (Gift from family so I can’t give you the link) But you can remove links so it’s the right size. I also like it because it doesn’t feel so sporty so it goes with nicer outfits.
This is from Apple's own battery life pages:
"Apple Watch battery performance claims are based on test results from the 38mm Apple Watch. A 42mm Apple Watch typically experiences longer battery life."
> "I've dropped my non-plastic Android phones before without screens breaking or anything."
Then you got lucky. There's nothing inherently different between metal/glass in an Android Phone and metal/glass in an iPhone3 or iPhone4.
> This is so wrong. It's 100% apples fault for having apps run on the iPhone then on the AW.
How is it Apple's fault if a Dev writes inefficient code inside the Dev's app ?...
> "Is it confirmed on the AW? I haven't hear or seen anything in that if the watch has wifi,"
Yep.. pretty much everywhere, up to and including the official website: https://www.apple.com/watch/apple-watch-sport/silver-aluminum-case-white-sport-band/
> "you can get any notification from your phone if it has data (even if you're across the globe)."
I'm not sure I ever claimed that. ("across the globe").. but generally speaking, most Android Wear watches cannot do this either. (some exceptions can.. but most cannot).
> "And subjective. It just astonishes me that Apple is known for the easy to use phone, but then chooses a clunky and hard to navigate UI."
I haven't found it to be "clunky or hard to navigate". But then, you're probably saying that because you've never sat down to use it.
> "The Smartwatch 3 runs the same software. Android Wear supports mobile payments. Only the SM3 has NFC built in."
OK. but that still doesn't alleviate the problem of hardware-fragmentation. This problem doesn't exist in the Apple Watch world. Every Apple Watch can do NFC.
> "The stock camera app on Android (equivalent of the stock camera on ios) allows you to use it as a remote shutter (and view the viewfinder, afaik)."
I'm not sure what you're describing here,.. but AndroidWear (as far as I know) cannot be a viewfinder for an Android phone unless you use a 3rd party App. On Apple Watch it comes built into the OS.
> "why is it that Android and PC's (windows, not personal computers) have way more market share?"
Because they're cheaper.
Apple good enough?
> Accelerometer. The Apple Watch accelerometer measures total body movement, counts your steps, and calculates your calories burned throughout the day.

I like the Barton Bands, have several of their bands for other watches and just picked up a blue leather one
Not the cheapest or the most expensive, but quality bands. Haven’t used the other ones mentioned so I don’t know how they compare.

I found Moko lugs in space gray on amazon here which comes with a pentalobe screwdriver. It works well enough for the Moko lugs but caution! They will strip the threading on the Apple connector screws. This happened to me so I swapped out the band at Apple. Having learned my lesson, I took it to a watch repair place but that didn’t work either because they wouldn’t touch it as they didn’t have the [proprietary?] Apple pentalobe screwdriver. In a last ditch effort, I went back to the Apple store and explained that I felt the clashing of the connector and watch case is a dealbreaker for me purchasing a product made premium due to its attention to detail. I reached the right person who went in the back to perform surgery on the band and came back with the connectors removed. I then came home and attached the darkened lugs on the Ceramic case.
Still, the effect is less than perfect as it is not a match. Also the leather is nice but not a perfect match on the Ceramic gray, which is an admittedly difficult watch to match bands for. It is a beautiful case and beautiful material, but I am resigned to admit that the band it comes with is the nicest it pairs with: a premium upscale-feeing version of apple’s most basic band, The gray sport band.
I ordered this band on Amazon about two weeks ago specifically because it was the only listing that said its 38/40mm version was the same length as the official Apple bands. I compared it to the sports loop that came with my watch and it's the exact same size.
It scuffed on the magnetic clasp after about a week, but other than that it's been great. Never come undone on accident or anything and I've worn it daily, both to bed and under sweaters that rub against it. It was $7 when I got it (looks like price went up a couple bucks) but it seems well put together and worth the money. It seems to be 90% the quality for 6% the price.
Anyone who wants one this is the one I ordered from amazon.

I have a fairly significant hearing loss and depend on hearing aids. Regular alarm clocks haven't worked for me for decades. I use this (https://www.amazon.com/dp/B000OOWZUK/ref=cm_sw_em_r_mt_dp_U_HInGCbS07FZC8 ) and it is awesome. You slip the hockey puck (The Rumbler) under your side of the mattress and the powerful vibrations really resonate through the mattress. Wakes me up easily. I leave the beep beep on silent and only use the rumbler.
But yes completely agree with you, my Watch has been a game changer for an on-body alarm.
Congrats! If you're considering adding other types of pre-configured actions, Tasker may be a good source of inspiration: https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=net.dinglisch.android.taskerm
It's one of the more popular Android Wear apps, and I don't know of an equivalent for Apple Watch so far, so I think there's an unfulfilled need. Pre-configuring really common actions seems like an ideal use-case for a device like the Watch.

https://www.apple.com/watch/apple-watch/ LINK BRACELET
Crafted from the same 316L stainless steel alloy as the case, the Link Bracelet has more than 100 components. The machining process is so precise, it takes nearly nine hours to cut the links for a single band. In part that’s because they aren’t simply a uniform size, but subtly increase in width as they approach the case. Once assembled, the links are brushed by hand to ensure that the texture follows the contours of the design. The custom butterfly closure folds neatly within the bracelet. And several links feature a simple release button, so you can add and remove links without any special tools. Available in stainless steel and space black stainless steel.
For in the city I just use the walking feature on Maps since I kind of know my way but for the ‘adventure’ rides I use Komoot. Apple Maps has cycling directions since iOS 14, but only in selected regions. I hope they expand that in the near future tbh
Consumer Reports tested them and found the heart rate monitor was as accurate as their highest-rated dedicated chest-strap monitor. http://www.consumerreports.org/cro/news/2015/04/first-test-results-of-apple-watch-and-apple-watch-sport/index.htm
Your best bet is to buy a 3rd party milanese loop like this, but not necessarily this one because I can't comment on quality.
Do not go with the silver clashing with the grey, that looks awful! I had a sgs one myself and I wanted more options so I traded in for the AWS, which still looked kinda cheap to me for formal events. I ended up splurging big time for the SS (even though I'm not made of mine) I have zero regrets and it looks amazing and formal with the Milanese loop. I figure that if V2 is a big enough upgrade then I'll sell this at a loss and use that money to fund for a good portion of V2.
Based on the shots it looks like it has video > live photo converter.
Probably doesn't work with GIFs but just found this site:
Which looks like it could be used to convert the GIF to video first if needed.
An easy way to do this is buy this band for 20$ and use the things that go in the Apple Watch and put on whatever band you want. I have the band, it’s actually really nice.

Here you go. I bought it from Best Buy but it's cheaper on Amazon. https://www.amazon.com/Clockwork-Synergy-Watch-Bands-Apple/dp/B01LDHUA0I/ref=sr_1_1?ie=UTF8&qid=1478787337&sr=8-1&keywords=clockwork+synergy+apple+watch+38mm
Ever since having a Pebble I have always put a gadgetwrap on mine.
When I bought my Apple Watch last week I went straight to Amazon and bought an Armorsuit for it. They are JUST like the Gadgetwrap but it folds over the screen! I hate the ones that just cover the front of the screen and when you swipe with your fingers you feel the corners and such. This one wraps over the edges so you don't get that and I LOVE it! Very cheap to for a 2 pack with lifetime warranty.
It’s this one from amazon. Pretty cheap too, about $18.

If it doesn’t have to be an exact replica this one is rated very highly on Amazon and Made by JETech. Im not sure if anyone here bought it but I was looking into getting it:
For those of us in the U.S. i think this is the same box from Amazon.
I hope one day get a red iPhone too! So they can match. here is the link on amazon where I bought it.
it looks like they have a very similar model on the Amazon US: https://www.amazon.com/Fullmosa-Compatible-Genuine-Leather-iWatch/dp/B07CPV69DB
Thanks for the recommendation! I think I'll pick one up too :)
