I have an iPhone 5C, and I am someone who tends to upgrade to the previous generation based on whatever is the latest model of the iPhone at the time. For all intents and purposes, my iPhone is mostly my iMessage, tasker, fitness and notification device. Moreover, I am easily prone to missing calls and texts, but I hate enabling sound notifications and ringtones. The only times I hear ringtones are when I am listening to music and I get an incoming call. Based on these characteristics, the Apple Watch may fit my bill pretty well; to my understanding, any notifications you get on the phone also pop up on the watch. However, I have a few questions. 1. Are third-party companion apps for iPhone apps as slow as everyone makes them out to be? A fair number of apps I use on a frequent basis have some cool Apple Watch features that I can see myself using. 2. Long-term, can I expect an Apple Watch to outlast an iPhone in terms of wear and tear? 3. When an Apple Watch is paired to an iPhone and you get a notification from any app, what happens? Does the iPhone also light up, or is it only the Apple Watch that lights up to let you know?
