    That means putting on layers of sweaters, jackets, gloves, etc. That also means the Apple Watch will cease to be useful for several months, at least when outdoors.

    So far I had to put on a coat a few times as the weather gets cooler and found it to be a pain to try to roll up my sleeve to check a notification. However, since I still feel the notification at least I know when to check my phone, which helps.

    Anyone else feel the pain and/or have strategies to maximize their enjoyment of the Apple watch in the winter?

    Well North of you in Minnesota and it is much colder, but I love winter and it isn't like I spend a ton of time outside, but it isn't really hard to raise my wrist and see the time. :)

    Finding this out here in RI

    The watch covered by a hoodie sleeve is no fun

    This is not an issue in the Sonoran desert... the triple digit temps leave and the reasonable temps arrive.

    I've been wearing long-sleeve shirts for the past two weeks (even though it's been in the mid to upper 70s), and I actually don't mind having to pull up my sleeve to view the watch. However, I also like winter and layering clothes, so I might be a little biased.

    The thing I'm really liking right now... No more sweaty wrist! ;)

    Easy fix, just buy a diving strap and wear it over your sleeve :)

    Apple have thought of this. Simply swipe up on sleeve to reveal Watch.

    I don't use an apple watch, but is it really that hard to roll up your sleeve a bit? I've never had a problem seeing the time on a normal watch in the winter even when wearing heavy coats.

    Waiting for an Aussie to chime in and tell us how they are looking forward celebrating another Christmas at the beach.

    I suspect that most of the population of Westeros is unhappy that Winter is Coming.

    Not a good idea to brag this year. Hopefully your Apple Watch will hold up while you are trying to swim out of the floods we are going to get this winter because of El Niño.

    I spent a year in Sydney for grad school and did that once. It was amazing. Girls in bikinis and Santa hats.

    My sleeves are tight on the wrist so maybe it just depends on the type of jacket. It's much less hassle to just pull the phone out of the jacket pocket than it is to roll up and look and reply on the watch.

    Will still be excellent indoor and as a notification device as the vibration on the wrist will tell me to look at my phone.

    Someone tell Cali that winter is coming. It was 80 degrees today and been 90-100 in the last few weeks.
