    Looking beyond the apple watch as a runner

    Hello, I am new to this forum (as a long time lurker), so if this post does not please some gatekeeping rules that I don't know of I apologize. On Christmas in 2021, I got a hand-me-down series 4 apple watch, and I loved it at the time. However, writing this 16 months later, my goodwill towards...

    Battery replacement - or new watch?

    I have a Series 4 which I’ve owned for 3.5 years now. It still does everything I need but, predictably, the battery life is starting to become a problem near the end of the day, with battery health currently at 81%. Apple will replace the battery for £80 (I don’t fancy using a third party...

    S4 freezes after an Indoor Workout

    Hi! Long time lurker/reader here, but first time poster :) Recently I've been experiencing a weird S4 watch issue and was wondering if anyone had the same issue or know of any potential solutions.

    I have an S4 40mm since released and works fine and satisfied when it comes to the feature. Current battery health is 74% and the battery lasts more or less 12 hours depending on what I do. And I usually charge during both breakfast and dinner every day which is slightly annoying and want to...

    This might be my first time posting in the apple watch forum and also please excuse my english in advance.

    Migrating Data From Watch Series 4 to Series 5

    Having only bought the S4 less than 5 months ago, I had no intention of upgrading to S5. However I was then surprised by the Always On screen and this week also won a competition which would cover almost 60% of the cost of the S5 with the sale of the S4 making up the rest . . . so it’s decision...

    The keynote came up on me too fast and I missed purchasing an Apple Watch band that Apple has removed today. It is the "Indigo/Craie/Orange Swift Leather Single Tour" from Hermes.

    Series 4 Hiking Distance Accuracy

    Yesterday, I hiked Mt. Bierstadt – one of Colorado's 14ers. I started and stopped tracking my hike at the same time on both my Apple Watch Series 4 using the workout app and my iPhone 8 using the GPS Tracks app. I have found the GPS Tracks app to be very reliable in the past. When I finished, I...

    How do you keep the sport bands from getting stuck?

    Hey guys, So I recently bought an OEM Rose Red sport band from someone and I just love the color, but the band is quite difficult to put on and take off. It almost feels like I have to force it in and yank it out. All my other bands go in and out with ease, so I’m not sure what I can do to make...

    I just bought a new Series 4 Space Black Stainless Steel watch about 3-and-a-half weeks ago. Every day when I go to bed, the watch's battery has been at about 60-65% remaining when I take it off at around midnight or perhaps later. Today, right before a meeting at work at 3 PM, I happened to...
