I am going to sell my Apple watch but was wondering why you have sold your Apple watch?
I'm on the bubble. I am going to buy either a Garmin 735XT or the next gen 920XT to replace my aging triathlon watch. These do fitness and activity tracking second-to-none. The 735XT looks decent as an everyday device-- not as attractive as a traditional watch or the AW, but it is not bad. If the 735XT becomes an everyday watch for me, I will likely sell the AW.
As I have been pondering it, this is what I would miss most from the AW:
Email notifications (I think everyone does message notifications, but I am not sure if the Garmin does email)
Dark Sky (Though, I think that the Garmin does have a weather app, and it may have notifications)
Hey Siri for starting timers while grilling
Ability to switch bands around (I have more than a dozen bands)
I bought a used AW about a month ago and I don't know if I could part with it. It has far exceeded my expectations!
I hope you find the watch you are looking for!
Someone offered my $1,000,000,000.
I think we have multiple threads on this already. I haven't sold mine. I will to upgrade to he Watch 2 maybe but other than that no plans to sell.
I sold mine for good price all things considered. But I regret it. I didnt think watch was essential when I had it. Now that its gone I know I made a mistake. But I will not pay Apple $700 again. I still believe watch owners are being treated as second category at apple stores.
There used to be a sticky at the top specifically for this, but I guess it lost interest and dropped off.
Topics like this should be less relevant once the AW becomes more useful on wOS 3 (you might want to reconsider selling lest you come crawling back; there have been quite a number of members who returned even on wOS 2).
… but one thing that would make me consider selling would be if an employer had a restriction against personal electronic devices. It's not unheard of here in the Washington, DC, area with some government agencies banning everything from personal cell phones to iPods and Fitbits.
That being said, I still love wearing it when I'm not doing work stuff. I enjoy not having to keep my phone on my person all the time. I'd keep it for logging workouts and staying generally connected.
I'm a hair's breadth away from putting my Garmin 410 on Craigslist, too, because even though the 410 gathers much more data than the AW can, I just don't care about the data anymore.
Dump the 410 and live on the edge with just the AW. The 4xx series was an aborted turd... Garmin abandoned it almost as soon as they introduced it. Those were probably at Garmin's lowest point of product innovation and value in the history of their sport GPS watches. A friend of mine has the 405 and his wife has the 410. They can't wait for them to die so they can justify replacements.
Shh! Don't ruin the resale value any more than it is!
I've had the 735XT since it was released, and am on my second AW (sold a SS after 7 or 8 months for a Sport). I go for weeks and weeks using the 735XT as a daily wear, but it's mainly to get 24/7 activity tracking to go along with my running and cycling. The smartwatch features are rough.
Lately I've been wearing the AW as my daily wear, and just using the 735XT for running and cycling. That seems to be the best compromise for me at the moment. Ideally, I'd love to have the activity data (steps, sleep) consolidated from the two devices, but I don't see that happening any time soon.
i bough one beginning of the year, then sold it. it wasn't until afterwords i realized how much i missed it. so now i have the same model again and WILL NOT be parting with it this time.
