Money spent better elsewhere.

I prefer a real watch, but used the wellness reimbursement for an Apple Watch and actually like it more than I thought. Like being able to track my workouts and like that notifications get pushed to it so can check things quickly. For classy events I always go with real watch

So many ple wear Apple Watch n Fitbit and automatically think it will help them get fit. You need to put in some sweat. Don't need any watch or bit for that

Lol not expecting the Apple Watch to burn calories for me D2. But I love the data and analytics that come along with it. And I went with the basic aluminum case with the black band, I thought the Nike edition was too flashy.

Yea was thinking of getting it for workouts and such. Because the new series doesn't require you to have your phone. And now it's water proof!

I just ordered mine after much deliberation and I'm hoping I like it 😐

I also got it for the workout / health tracking capabilities but like the integration with iPhone and all of my other apple stuff

Ey1: did you get the Nike one? Thinking of getting it for running

Ey1: does yours give you push notifications to go workout? Or is that only the Nike one?

I think the only difference is the appearance and they all use the same OS, but I could be wrong. I haven't actually received mine yet, 3 week wait time 🙄

I used to be a top performer before rona but have been so unmotivated for the last year of WFH and my performance is tanking because of it. I know some people love this life but I absolutely hate it; I chose audit because I enjoy being onsite at clients and thrive on the team camaraderie of audit rooms. WFH was okay at first, but the longer I'm stuck sitting at the same desk in my house alone all day the more meaningless everything feels to me. I don't know what the solution is, but I'm so tired
