    Now that you guys have Apple Watches, are you turning off your IPhone as a Data point in the health app? I know both devices have similar sensors, but I'm assuming the watch is more accurate since its on my wrist and not in my pocket. Also, I never place it down like I do my phone?

    I was wondering the exact same thing (my watch arrives tomorrow). I was also wondering if not turning off the phone as a data point would result in duplicate data, but I'm assuming Apple anticipated that issue.

    They're both added automatically. You don't want to remove the phone - the App will sort out duplicate information, and each device has sensors that the other does not.
