Anyone here ever consider getting an Apple Watch for fitness and functionality? If so worth it?

Without a doubt apple watches are 100x more functional than any mechanical watch, mechanical watches are pretty much agreed to be outdated tech all things considered. Apple watches are IMO totally acceptable in the workplace these days, so if you want the functions go for it

For me, though, I never end up really wearing mine because there's something I just love about having a small machine that stores energy from a spring to tell the time. Watches are just too damn charming to me to give up for a more functional wristwear. In a weird way they remind me how creative people used to have to be to do basic things like know what time to meet up

Definitely. Have not been wearing my other luxury watches ever since getting an apple.

If I didn't work in a SCIF.

I just caved and got it, I only wear it when I’m exercising. Any other activity, work, pool, dinner requires my trusty Sub.

I love my luxury watches (Zenith, GS, Nomos, and a few micro brands), but been trying all kinds of smart and hybrid smartwatches.

My two favorites are:

1. Garmin 945/Venu - great battery life and fitness tracking, including sleep. Passable smart notifications - lets me know when my next meeting is, who's calling, or texting.

2. Skagen Hybrid - never needs charging but chews through a battery every two months. Great step counter etc and also has limited notification support.

My main pet peeve with Apple watch and WearOS is their abysmal battery life (AW series 4 and Tag connected). Love having the assistant on my wrist and have the most awesome screens and watch faces, but the lack of sleep tracking and the just about 1 day battery life doesn't cut it.

Downsized now to just a Garmin Venu and it stays on my wrist all weekend and most weekdays.

Sorry, transferring to the US and I'm a bit confused regarding the FINRA exams.

Are we required to take the SIE, Series 7, Series 63, Series 79?

My offer letter says my employment is contingent on the Series 63 and 79 registrations. It also says Canadians will need SIE/Series 7 top off and I'm Canadian. But it looks like IB just requires the SIE and 79..? HR isn't very responsive.

TIA
