Apple Watch – yes, it is one of the gizmos Apple brought to market…So we, the trusting consumers thought “well, lets give it a shot – after all it is coming from the company that makes so many great products…”
Well, as you can tell from my several postings so far, it has been less of an impressive gadget – actually borderline a disappointment!
Why do I say that? Well, here I go with my latest gripes:
- Siri is not there – whaaaat? Well, Siri is not waking up when I make the famous call “Hey Siri…” no one answers….
- I am supposed to be able to answer SMS with voice and convert to text or send as a voice response. 8 out of 10 tries DO NOT WORK! Just had that experience 5 minutes ago…
- The exercise calorie measurements – as I reported in the earlier posting, they are just wrong. I am biking for 1+ hour and the watch measures 600-700 calories (mountain biking) but close to 200 are shown as “at rest calories”…. Now, how that can be? The watch / its software knows I am exercising – I specified manually that I am on the bike….
At any rate, these are simple BUT very irritating and just plain not thought-through things…Poor software….Period!
