Hi All,

I plan to buy the AW4 LTE and use that as my main phone most of the time leaving my iphone at home.
I love to skate in the skatepark and wonder how much distance can i have with the bluetooth earpods from the AW4, as i plan to stream music via apple music. i want to leave the watch in my bag when i am skating due falling lots of time.

Thanks in advance.

It works very well except the BT strength doesn't seem to be nearly as strong as my iPhone. I have found that even putting my wrist behind my back can make the signal cut out.

Seems fine to me all round my house. I load Audible books on the watch as I don't always have my phone with me when I want to listen to an audio book. I leave the watch on a charge stand in the evening while I do house work and it doesn't seem to have any issues reaching the AirPods over two floors.

Wouldn’t want to leave my 500 dollar watch in a bag at a skate park. Should just look into a rugged case to protect it while skating. They come off easy when done.

awesome that was the information i was looking for! so it seems to be very minimal reach, i was hoping to be able to put the Watch in my bag and grind a ledge like 2 meters from it.
