just catching up on the apple event, they seem to be making a big deal about the watch being able to monitor blood oxygen

Samsung phones have been doing that as a standard feature for a very long time already.

i didn't even know this wasn't a feature on the apple watch, did samsung have a patent or something

seems the major benefit of having it on the watch is it can just alert you without you having to check. still, i'm amused this wasn't a standard feature already considering it's also a standard feature of a lot of heartrate monitors

seems the only other thing they go on about is hey new ipad air. it looks fine i guess. i am not the target audience for ipad so it's really not that interesting

if the apple watch didn't require the iphone to set it up, and features that are locked behind needing an iphone, i'd probably actually be interested in it

we're at the 6th version of the apple watch now and you still can't just use it completely on it's own

@Violet do you want to know the answer?

@moiety i'm not sure I really care that much honestly, still don't really plan on grabbing an apple watch until they completely untether it from the iphone

@Violet It's tying us to our current iPhone, too. We really want a PinePhone.
