  1. Workflow is excellent, I hope they make good use of the acquisition.
  2. https://www.amazon.com/Polar-Bluetooth-Sensor-Fitness-Tracker/dp/B00NOHWTO6 This is the one I own. It was considered the best when I bought it, but that was a couple of years ago. I'm sure there's probably better now? Maybe not. I don't actually do HIIT myself so I don't use it. But I did connect it a few times just to try it out with the watch
  3. The HRM/Calorie measurements have been very accurate for me. Matching gym equipment and my chest strap HRM. I know some have had issues during HIIT, but I can't speak to that. You can, however, connect a chest strap to the Watch and it'll use that over it's own HRM. Because of Healthkit, the health/fitness ecosystem on iOS and by extension the Watch are excellent. Apple opened Watch OS alot in 2.0 and 3.0 so third party devs can tie in pretty well. You can also share with friends. I'd expect this will just get expanded upon a fair bit again going forward with 4.0. Also I'm with you on the Jawbone stuff. They actually had great software for Up. Provided real insights into your data instead of just dropping it on you. Shame.
  4. Apple Watch is one of my favorite gadgets ever. I love mine. I think it looks great, I love the band switching. Notifications on the wrist with a nice app ecosystem and good health/fitness features. Battery is great (relatively, i can get 2 days no problem but not 7+ of a fitbit :P). It's the kind of thing that, IMO, you can't quite get unless you get one. For me, I couldn't go without it now. My tech-casual friends that have them feel the same way.
  5. Escape is in the same place, just on the Touch Bar. You can blindly hit it the same as the old escape key, because even if you miss the touch target it actually extends the length of the bar to the left. Was concerned about that myself but after spending some hands-on time with it it wasn't an actual issue.
  6. No delay for me. Games work great. I really love these things, they're perfect for what I wanted. Great Christmas gift
  7. I bought mine pretty much exclusively for walking the dog and going to the gym. For both of those use cases a wire is a massive PITA. I'm sure i'll appreciate them more in the summer, too, when I go for runs and leave my phone behind (music on my watch).
  8. Seen a tweet and ordered mine before the shipping times slipped by a month. Here next Friday.
  9. So, so much better. To me, reddit and Narwhal are the same at this point. It just does everything, with a very simple but feature rich UI while taking full advantage of the platform (splitview, pip on iPad, 3D touch on iPhone). Alien Blue was my previous reddit app.
  10. Loved it.
  11. Same TV as me. It's so, so good. I can't imagine me upgrading until either something happens too it or 4k HDR in a substantially larger size is way cheaper.
  12. Likewise, lol. There's some good stuff in 10.2 by the looks. Saved camera settings, star ratings, new wallpapers, performance improvements + new kernal, modem firmware. The OS remembers which notification panel you were on, so you can always slide down to widgets, etc.
  13. They're back! They've been added to iOs 10.2, believe it or not.
  14. The short term is filled with dongles so that the long term won't have to be. It'll be great when literally everything is connected with USB-C. Hopefully Apple switches Lightning out for USB-C. I could see them completely dropping the connector before that happens, though.
  15. It's everything, in a USB-C connector.
