Running with Apple Watch

Today I went running with the apple watch.  I used the activity app and thought it was a good experience.  I went this morning for 35 minutes.  I found that the activity app reads my heartbeat every 5 seconds when using the app and every 10 minutes normally.  After the run, my battery life was 93 percent on my watch (I have the screen brightness set on medium).  I was impressed with the app.  I have always used the Nike+GPS app.  I will give that one a try on Monday and compare the two.



Apple Watch on Launch Day!

My apple watch came in today!  I have enjoyed playing with it so far.  I’m sure as I use it for the next few days, I will have more impressions of the watch but as of right now, I really enjoy it.  The interface is a bit different than the iPhone and the side button will take some getting used to.  I have been impressed with its capabilities.  Tonight, I tested listening to music on my wireless beats (paired to my iPhone) while controlling the music with my watch.  I also was able to control my Apple TV using the remote app on the watch while listening to the my beats.  I have multiple Apple TVs and I like how easy it is to switch between them in the app on the remote.  Here is me pulling it out of the box.  (The box is a nice plastic box and velvet lined.



When pairing it, the setup is on the phone.  I love the logo they display.



Here is a picture of my watch tonight as I go to bed.




I am excited to take it out for a run tomorrow 🙂



Beats Wireless Studio

Beats 1

I love my beats headphones.  I have white and silver mac products so I went with the matching white headphones.  I bought the Beats Wireless Studio with Adaptive Noise Cancellation.  The noise canceling is really nice on them.  I recently was on a flight and the noise canceling cut out the sound of the plain.  I like that I can listen to them both wirelessly and wired.  I sit near an AC vent at work and these headphones block out that noise well.

The one thing that I don’t like about them is the fact that when the battery dies, so does the music.  I cannot listen to them once the battery is dead when plugging them into my device.  I think it is too bad that the speakers are tied to the battery and there is no way to bypass the noise canceling and continue to use the headphones like regular headphones.  Other than that, I love them.  They are super comfortable.  I bought mine at best buy.  I tried on each pair of beats and these were the most comfortable to me.

iPhone 6+


I got my iPhone 6+ today in the mail.  I love apple products.  I like their design and style.  They look clean and modern to me.  I have friends who feel the same way about their androids.  I think both types of phones are great and each have their own pros and cons.  I’m not here to tell anyone what to buy or which product is better than which other product.  My family uses apple products (including my grandma who just upgraded to the iPhone 6:) ).  The biggest features I look forward to Apple Pay, the upgraded camera and battery in the 6+.   I will keep you updated on how these features work.
