    Its an around the house / working on the car / going to the shops in smelly shorts and T-Shirt I've slept on watch, and a working out / exercise watch. My Luminox was my old beater, and it was just a bit too crap for me to ever like it. The Apple watch is actually rather good, the rubber strap is great, one of the best I've worn but the bracelet is something else, it makes the bracelet on my 116520 Daytona feel cheap and rough by comparison, the only bracelet I've worn that had a better feel was an AP Royal Oak.

    As an exercise watch, does it give heart rate, calories burned and GPS? Might have to buy it if it does.

    GPS is via the paired iPhone but it learns your runs and remembers them after you've done it once. Does give heart rate, calories burned and a lot of other cool stuff. The Apple TV remote app I use constantly, same with the Samsung TV remote app, banking details and stuff is really helpful too as is texting and phone calls from it.

    It won't make you look as cool as an 2447SN, if anything people will think you're a wanker for wearing one and talking to your wrist. But In my case I already was one before I bought it so there was nothing to lose.

    Must add some extra info to be complete that I actually have two bezels for my Aquaracer 500M WAJ1110, the original black rubber one and this rosegold one as pictured. I do sometimes switch them but to me the rosegold one looks best!

    I'm wearing my Apple Watch less than I did in the first week weeks- it's not a hardware issue (agree 100% on the quality feel), just that the apps are not that compelling. Let's see what the next OS update brings...after all, the first iPhone launched without an App store, which is pretty amazing when you think how much third party apps are part of iOS today

    I wore mine for 14 days, then returned it. I really wanted to like it...but its really just a remote for the iPhone. I am a heavy iPhone user and receive hundreds of emails a day, I ended up going straight to the iPhone vs glancing at Apple Watch. I may try it again later, but honestly its hard to give up wrist time for my vintage watches and so I wore both.

    It's a Rado Diaster Origional Diver.
    The bezel is tungsten-carbide. Case measures 38.6 mm x 46 mm.
    Internal rotating chapter ring.
    I bought it a few weeks ago at Kirk Freeport in the Grand Caymans. This was one of the few good things that happened down there. It rained every day.

    I like it- very 70s feel to it..nice chunky case.

    At least you'll have the watch as compensation for the rain!
