Watch Series 4: What price 'freedom'? About as much as you'd expect from an Apple product

Re: Just seen the TV advert

I may have a bit of Apple kit about, but I'm still completely unconvinced by the Apple Watch

You're not the target market. It used to be the case that people looking to exercise worked out for themselves how long they needed to exercise, and could tell from their own body when they were "in the zone", as well as measuring progress by what they achieved in terms of distance, time or weight, using no more than their own ability to count and a simple clock. Now there's an entire generation of fairweather fitness freaks who do exercise, but without seeming to achieve that much, and seem incapable of doing so without a device to inaccurately guess their pulse, temperature, blood pressure and then present that inaccurate information with pseudo precision via a digital wrist display.

Each to their own. And all credit to Apple for making stockholders richer with this finely crafted product.
