Re: Old skool

The 2 apps I used most were WhatsApp and Fitbit. The former would lose contact with the Charge several times a day, saying that the phone could no longer make a connection to the watch and the phone needed to be restarted; interestingly, the phone still showed the watch as connected and de-installing and re-installing the app would fix the problem, but having to re-install the app or restart the phone 3 or 4 times a day is not practical.

WhatsApp would go for days without noticing that news messages had arrived, then you got a bunch of messages all together... Not really useful.
