    Apple included everything I wanted in the Series 2, especially the waterproof and the GPS. I do however, have one question, for anyone who gets their series 2 tomorrow, can you verify that the watch will or will not track flights of stairs?

    My wife and I work together and take a break about once every two hours and do about four flights of stairs. Right now, we always take our iPhones so we can track that, as the current Apple Watch only tracks steps and not flights of stairs.

    Thanks and everyone enjoy!

    I can't say definitively but I would bet that they do not track flights of stairs because they don't a have barometer.

    Anyone tried this yet? I've got the Nike+ version coming next month. Not going to change my pre-order, just more curious than anything. Hate to lose my daily flight counts, but then again, I hate brining my phone with me all the time.

    do you have the workflow app? i have a script i built for using the stair stepper machine at the gym, to add those in manually. if you know its four flights of stairs, you could probably come up with something very simple to add those in a single tap on your return to the phone. you could even add the script to your watch.
