This is one of the best informed review of the Apple Watch on youtube. Job well done Eric. Keep the video coming.

Tip for tracking swimming: You can press the side button + crown at the same time to pause the timer, the watch doesn't have to be unlocked for that so you can pause it and spin the crown to end the workout.

I’ve been debating about getting an Apple Watch but wow your review is really straight forward no BS lol. New Subbie.
& I’m unset there’s cool things in the watch we can’t use yet
Nxel
This one, Garmin 645 or Fitbit versa? I like GPS and heart rate tracking during sleep. Thanks!
Abdulla Fit
So I don't need my chest heart rate monitor in the gym for weight lifting ? Thank you for the amazing review 💙

Wow. That's really surprising and honestly a little bit sad if Garmin and Fitbit optical wrist HR are outdone by Apple. The "Swiss Army Knife" of mainstream smartwatches isn't supposed to beat the specialists at their own game! As mentioned by others, I'm really curious to hear if you have a better/worse/equal experience with the new Polar Vantage sensor when it's out.
Harry Bizzle
Thank you. So good to have someone who actually knows about fitness features properly review the watch.

I’m looking forward to your review of 3rd party running apps. I’m looking for something which gives me all the data I get with Garmin connect and my Forerunner.
Jonah Ahearn
Heart rate chart unavailable is because you didn’t swim for long enough for it to gather the necessary data for a full graph
Bill Campbell
Great review from being informative and well done. The series 4 is my first Apple Watch obtained for helping with recently diagnosed heart issues. My doctor was pleased about it too. Aside from that though I just find it to be a very cool gadget. Looking forward to your further reviews. The atmosphere of learning and even an entertainment value is very good. Thanks.🙂👌🏻⌚️

Awesome video! Thank you. Makes me glad I decided to order one.

Thank you for the very detailed review from a person who works out. These were all the questions I would ask pertaining to the data the watch pulls.
Sneaky Ray
Can you turn off sleep mode? I want it to never sleep just like a real actual watch

Witch is the best application for the gym workout.?

Tic Tech Toe
How does the Series 4 compare to Samsung Watch/Gear Sport?
How does the heart rate sensor and GPS compare?
Unique Xtha
Doesn’t it count steps while running ???

Whats your take on the recently announced (Feb 200 Galaxy Watch Active ?
mike419100
Very impressed with your comprehensive - no BS review!
Jorge Sedano
Hi, I had a question... When you use the watch for weight lifting do you pause the watch in between sets? During your 1 to 2 minute rest? Thank you and great video!
This and That
At last! been waiting for this!
Brian Lancaster
Great job, looking forward to your other reviews on this watch!!
Kuko
It’s a reachable review loved it
Bflo23
I'll get this watch when it goes on sale for black friday 2019. I was debating to get the Series 3 now for cheap but the Series 4 seems much better and I can wait.
Osama Madlom
Fantastic video, you don't get the recognition that I think you deserve, keep up the good work!!
episode04
Great video, probably the best ive seen related to the heart rate... would be good to do a comparison video between the series 3 and series 4 when it comes to the gym lag times.
Jeremiah Pierucci
I've used just about every tracker out there and I completely agree with you. Best optical heart rate monitor yet.
Kyle Gray
The watch automatically breaks down laps, so the issue of time having added seconds isn’t an issue
Ben Hernandez
I use the scoshe rhythm + with my series 4. So with this would you suggest I just use the watch instead of the external heart rate monitor? Love your videos
MyMd1111
Which apps do you use for weight lifting???
Pilates Bumps Beyond
No yoga or pilates ?
子興
may i ask the size of watch you uesd is 40 or 44mm ?
Trey’s life TM
Should I get space gray
Gwilym James
Looking forward to a video with your preferred workout apps. There are a few apps like run gap that let you push to multiple apps at the same time.
klif estorco
Battery Life??
Carlo Timpano
Hi Techy are you still using the Amazfit Stratos?
Christian Timbol
Series 4 still not available in the Philippines! I’m so excited with this Apple Watch. 😀
Chianna Nicole
Would you say the calories burned and the heart rate reading for the series 4 is just as accurate as the apple watch series 3? those two are all i usually care about
Matthew Walters
If I sell the ionic and buy this will I see a big difference?
Ashley O’Neal
Dying waiting for your favorite workout apps for Apple Watch series 4! Great review by the way
Andras Kiss
I bought same watch, but little bit disappointed after Fenix 5x, especially battery time, only plus fancy screen.
lior razli
any way to syc activity in with garmin connect app?
gregr209
Really looking forward to the weightlifting app segment you said you will do for the Apple Watch. I always just use the strength tracking built in mode when lifting weights but have always felt there were other more useful apps out there to use.
Kendra Orndorff
So sad, I am unable to upgrade to the series 4... will have to hold onto my series 3! Great review Eric! Thanks!
PatrickNSF
Great review! I'm curious if you still use the Fenix 5X as your daily wear watch, or if you've switched to the Apple Watch.
D M
There seemed to be an unusually long delay from 112bpm to 139bpm. This is why I gave up on wrist heart rate. I use a chest strap and my watch shows changes in HR in real time. The optical was always delayed and even more so when recovering.
jose canales
Work with a forklift and it tracks a stupid amount of steps for me granted I do walk around maybe 50/50 on foot and the lift and I leave work with 12k steps there’s just no way
Remo Füeg
Would you say the sensor on the applewatch is more accurate than the polar oh1 ?
ZAHTAE33
Do you have a fitness channel?
GEORGE VRONTAKIS
Hi, great video. I have a question. Is there a way to complete turn off the heart rate sensor and gps and auto enable them only when i use the workout app? Thank you in advance
Chad Shawver
What is a good third party app for running that will show more metrics?
MrRedot06
Very detail and good review, I’ll stay with Series 3 👍 peace
chris worth
You make me want to work out. I’ll follow for that reason alone
fofo queen
I need help
should I buy Apple Watch 4 or garmin viovactive HR or fit bit blaze?
Terry Shiu
Will the watch fit if you put boxing gloves on?
Larry Silverman
A key point to the heart rate accuracy is the choice of straps, with the sport loop having the necessary adjustable settings for a snug fit. Excellent review.
RED LINEAGE
Still ECG haven’t suport in mu country indonesia
Joaquim Quintaneiro

Paolo Fine
The best review of the Apple Watch 4 for fitness
naimouu

Kio Milenium
I can't wait for the "third party apps" follow up, mate :-}
Can I use an Apple Watch just with a 12.9" iPad PRO (Without any iPhone)? I'm very tempted to get a Series 4
Lammert Vos
Are there a lot of differences between AW3 and AW4? Or is the AW3 also very accurate (during running, strength training). Thanks for the review!
Maky
Hello!

I have a question : )
I was interested in buying the original Apple Watch for measuring my heart rate during my High-Intensity cardio sessions. Unfortunately I was told that it was not only inaccurate in measuring heart-rate but equally importantly it did not have a 'Continuous' heart rate sensor/feature.
After viewing your video I see you mention it now has an accurate heart rate sensor however I did not clearly see you mention if it has the ability to Continuously display heart rate or it only measures when you flick your wrist?

Thanks for your review.
Ira Bliss
I just want to say that the fall detection works like a champ...in fact it save my life! I fell so hard , I cracked my skull so hard that I needed 36 staples in my head.......note I had multiple skull fractures prior to this..
, from being hit by a car, on the expressway , as a pedestrian!,.( I have a T.B.I.)
I was hurt so bad I couldn’t even get my bearings to think where a phone would be.?
....I didn’t have to do a thing! My wrist vibrated and said fall detected,calling emergency services in 5,4,3,2,1. And boom I am on a 911 call!

So 5seconds not a minute.....the blood was pouring from my head.....I couldn’t even think straight to do anything....I,e. Mess with trying to make a call etc.

Yeah. I. Would not be here if it wasn’t for the watch.......because I have the watch I can continue to live ALONE. The watch expensive? Are you kidding me? Price Life Alert or another Help I’ve fallen and can’t get up”.service ! that is way more expensive in the long run.....

This watch is BOMB,!!!!! It works great as a phone! Please I spread the word.....this is a must have for the elderly...You don’t have to be a geek to use it for a fall detection....just charge and wear it.

P.s. incidentally ,I’m pretty cool, and it still worked for me.....dang maybe those people are righ, I am. A geek? Ha
tha_realness
@5:12 the heart rate graph doesn't look any better than on S3 for example. There's quite a few gaps in between so apparently it lost track of heart rate there... Unless the reviewer was pausing the workout in between sessions?
PepeTheFrog
Can the apple watch series 4 track my heart rate constantly 24h a day? Or does the apple watch has a limit when its about tracking the heart rate? Cause id like to track my heart rate the whole day and have a nice little overview how my heart rate was during the whole day.
Daniel Atkins
By far the best fitness based reviews. What you cover is exactly what people want to actually know but it always seems to be brushed over or not reviewed at all in other reviews. Thanks for your hard work!
John Walton
Just the information I wanted. Great reviews.
David Corsi
Question: Do you like the Sport Loops for workouts? It seems so but I worry sweat leaving it wet / smelling and you swam with one and doesn't that leave it damp for hours? Thanks.

What apps do you pair / use with your Apple Watch? I have Strava but haven’t used it in ages. Thanks
Jhoan Palacio
Fitbit Ionic vs Apple Watch 4. Which one should I get. Specifically for fitness.
John Manley
Best OHR so far? Wow. As an android user I'm feeling a bit jealous. I'd have to leave Project Fi and buy an iPhone and get this watch. Too high a price but I'm liking what I see in the AW4!
