When the Versa broke, I did consider the Versa 2. It seemed to have a lot of the same issues as the original. Then I saw that the Apple Series 5 had an always-on clock face and I jumped in. I wont give you the most technical review, as that can be googled quickly anywhere. What I can do is give the perspective of someone upgrading from the Pebble/Versa environment.
What the Series 5 brings that is the most significant is the always-on clock face. As a physician in patient rooms, the worst thing you can do is deliberately lift up your arm to get your watch to come alive to see the time or look at pages or texts (figuratively speaking, actually a lot worse things can be done). I have not once done this and not had someone comment that they thought they were wasting my time, so I just stopped checking my watch. Always on is a social must-have feature, or you are that douchy guy who is obviously checking the time while talking to people. On the Versa the motion needed to turn on was so poorly designed and deliberate that you would have to repeatedly and deliberately flick your wrist to see the time. I am so glad that thing broke. Other cool but less important features include a really good compass and women's health tracker. I'm sure that there are plenty of dudes out there like me who like to pretend to have a cycle and track it on our watches so...just sayin. Bonus.
Not going to get into all of the other heath features which are not new to this model. The fitness tracker is cool and auto-detects activity quite well. Apple still trails Fitbit in sleep tracking, though. The battery is new in some way. Tear downs show a new design which likely helps to account for the same battery life with the always-on screen. I want at least a week of charge though. Let's go, Apple.
Compared to the Versa, Fossil and others, this is just a polished, well made device. The quality is apparent immediately. The 40mm version is a thin, appropriate wrist size. IMO the 44mm just looks too big and bulky. The band is really comfortable and super easy to swap out. The connection to iPhone is perfect - no disconnects and really excellent haptics. I have yet to explore all of the apps and features but navigating the watch is no different than an iPhone with regard to gestures - swipe down for alerts, swipe up for control center.
- Always on display!!!
- Thinner than Series 4 - not as bulky
- Handsome, solid, quality build and feel
- Perfect iPhone integration and connection
- Great haptics
- Intuitive controls
- Really comfy band which is one touch on/off - no fussing with the band. Great design.
- Cost (relative to others)
- Battery life - charge it every night
- Screen scratches easily - get a screen protector
Final word: I am really glad that my Versa is sitting in a midden pile decomposing. I regret that I did not get an Apple Watch sooner - although always on was the deal-maker for me. Battery life is still low and there is now yet another device to manage charging for, but if you can deal with that then there is no reason to buy a different smart watch.
Update: I purchased a very handy nightstand device for charging my phone and watch. The watch is so easy to pop on and off and just drop onto the stand that the charging issue is really a non-issue, much to my surprise. Now when I charge my phone at night, which i routinely do, the watch drops right alongside it. Easy peasy.
Update #2: Still love the watch. I was playing with my dog on a tile floor when I heard a crunch. Lifted the watch to see a bunch of deep scratches on the glass. Checked online and replacing the screen is a $300 affair. I am going to try to polish it out, but for god sake use a screen protector.
TIP - Scratch removal: Not really part of the review, but I could not find any decent way to get the scratches out of the watch surface. After about 3 weeks and multiple different products and trials, practicing on old watches, I finally was successful with a technique using a Dremel, foam pad, auto sandpaper (600 down to 3000 grit) and Cerium Oxide. It was actually quite easy once I got it. Very smooth surface - not factory smooth, but smooth. Happy to coach anyone through it if wanted.
I used a Garmin FR935 for my daily commute, which is a short 6mi ride.
The accuracy of the Apple Watch’s GPS is a joke. It was one my wrist, the screenshot is in mid-ride, so it’s not like it didn’t have time to calibrate.
My Garmin (which was on my other wrist) draw a straight, firm line, while the Apple Watch was zig-zag-ing all over the place. This was not an isolated error. My whole ride was messed up.
I charge my Garmin once a week, as my Apple Watch’s battery was less than 10% when I got home from work.
