I don't have an Apple watch, though I probably have every other thing Apple makes, so I have no idea it's true functionally, but here's a new TV spot that shows how Apple sees it used by people. Clearly, fitness is a big market but not the only. The functionally may be oversold here (don't know) but as usual with Apple ads, it's nicely human.

As noted above, Verizon is charging $10/month, with the first three months free. I’m debating it. It would be nice not to have to be married to my phone.

Ditto only mine isn't the s model. The Fenix 5 is everything I want in a smart watch and nothing I don't. Was going to do a 2nd gen apple watch but passed and am glad I did.

yea, my only issue with the normal 5 is the size, the 42mm "s" model is perfect for me.
