    Blue Apple Watch

    Hello there, i am about to receive my blue Apple Watch with the dark blue sports band. But now I am not sure if the color choice was the right one. In my opinion the blue watch can be combined with only a few bracelets. What do you think? Should I return it and just get the space black model?

    Anyone using an Apple Watch 6 with asthma?

    Hey all, I was just wondering if any Apple Watch 6 owners out there have asthma, and if so - has the series 6 given any benefit over previous versions?
