Finally I also have this nice little gadget - it was hard, as a descendant of a family of a traditionnal swiss watchmaker valley, the Val-de-Ruz / Neuchâtel, to buy one. At least the material follows the tradition: Titanium and saphire glass.
I opted for Apple, as I am a big Apple fan since 1987 - but - oh! The software!! What did Apple do the last 9 years? Really? Missing such basic stuff? Because todady is WWDC I decided to write my wishlist for watchOS 10 and see what will be fullfilled - just for fun.
After the presentation of watchOS 10 yesterday, I updated my wishlist with «fullfillments». I am sad - just 2 were partially fullfilled.
|missing sport: inline skating, longboarding, rope-skipping (hey, it’s not sooo uncommon)||❌|
|hey, dear americans: biking is not just «training»! It is a way of transport like walking and stairs climbed and should be tracked automatically (a company of facebook could do this 10 years ago - so… please)||❌|
|the heart zone colours have no meaning. The should display aerobe, etc.||❌|
|it should calculate a human battery/stress level, as Garmin does it.||❌|
|the segments of a training should be displayed in the activity app.||❌|
|the trainings should display a map on the watch itself, not just when you run the same way every time||❌|
|the colors on the activity app should be configurable.||❌|
|hikings should be plannable with GPX files or similar and display elevation ahead||🟠 adding trails in Compass - but this is very limited|
|really? there is no drink tracking. I had to code it myself with short actions. At least this was fun.||❌|
|Apple Maps are completely useless for outdoor. The «Ultra» is an outdoor watch, right? Pluggable Map providers would be cool, e.g. the Swiss Topographic Institute.||🟠 adding Topographic Maps in USA 🇺🇸, hopefully soon in Switzerland 🇨🇭|
|or: as Apple is one of the richest companies in the world, they could sponsor a OpenStreetMap Tile server and integrate it.||❌|
Sleep Tracking is almost useless… Beddit 7 years ago could do much more, and it was even acquired by Apple. So what the…?
|Sleep tracking should not be dependent on a sleep plan.||❌|
|When I charge my whatch during «slow down phase», it should not count this as deep sleep.||❌|
|It should track if I sleep longer than planned…||❌|
|It should detect snoring either with iPhone or Watch microphone||❌|
|It should track naps during the day.||❌|
|Bike Blinker: When in Bike mode (deceted automatically, see above) and I make a left turning sign, the Watch should blink orange with full power.||❌|
|GarageBand light: Tuner and metronome||❌|
|The «Ultra» has a nice orange button. Please do more with it!||❌|
So, I am very curious for tonight!
I will fill out the table tomorrow.
