Apple Watch owners! Would DH like an Apple Watch for Xmas?

I know you don't know him! He does like watches and wears different ones. He uses an iPhone. He is shockingly bad at remembering appointments and kid pick ups. He is a lapsed cyclist who needs to do some more exercise. He quite enjoys using Alexa type tech at home.

Do you think he might enjoy the product benefits or are they really just gimmicky? I fear it would be a 5 minute wonder.

Can you tell I am not super techy?

Thanks for any advice!

My DH is techy and a massive Apple fan so the watch has been a huge hit for him. Much like your DH, his memory is shocking regarding appointments and dates in the diary so he loves being reminded AND it tells him to move his arse on a night if he hasn’t done enough exercise so it prompts him to walk the dog an extra half hour or whatever.
I think it’s a super thoughtful gift and if I could have gotten him it as a surprise instead of him buying it the second it was released I would have jumped at the chance.

I'm an Apple fan. I bought an Apple Watch for myself last Christmas. I have lots of watches but since I bought this it's the only one I wear.

Love it.

You just need to search for the right one. Does he need GPS? Will he be diving to 30 metres? Will he want to make calls if he's left his phone at home? I didn't so bought a Watch that didn't have features I wouldn't use. Makes a saving.

How big are his fingers, and how good is his eyesight?

I need reading glasses, but can’t wear them walking about, so I can’t read the watch face very well.

I also find the little dots too tiny to use - fat fingers and eyesight as above.

He travels a lot, but does not often forget his phone. He does not wear reading glasses but probably should. He also has sausage fingers!

His phone is a company one, so does that mean he would need to set it up with that? Probably no go if so as he would get messages all bloody night from different time zones!

Certainly diving is not essential! I think he would need the bigger one as he is pretty chunky
