A lot of cool tech but it seems extremely unnecessary.

But then again, I said the same about iPads and see how that turned out lol

Maybe I’ll consider the third or fourth iteration, if people identify a cool and unique use-case for it.

And it has to be cheaper too. 3,500 dollarydoos is just too much.

I think that the battery solution is just goofy and very un-Apple. Steve Jobs would have fired the person making that suggestion.

Are you perhaps allergic to the material on the strap?

Might be worth trying a different material and see how you get on.

I think the main issue is that the case is way too big. I tried moving it around and wearing tighter today but it actually gave me a blister.

I will try wearing it a bit higher, with the right edge of the case exactly on my wristbone and see what happens.

By case, do you mean a case you put your Watch Ultra in, or just the body of the device?

Hmmm. That’s a shame. I don’t know what the comfort of the Ultra is like because I have a Series 7. But that’s very comfortable (to me).
I had a similar issue with the S7, but not as bad as this one. I gave that one to my gf and she repeatedly complains about rashes as well.

Moved it a bit but still no luck, I have a rash and a pimple on the spot I placed it.

I will revert back to my old Garmin and sell this one. Shame!

So I went back to read the damn instructions for my Watch on how to wear it and it’s much better now, although I still need to buy a band that’s more fitting for everyday use.

I got one for my birthday... the use is pretty much a media player(it does play games too). A media player instead of the one built into TVs or instead of connecting a computer to the TV. If one is in the apple system it makes sense, otherwise one can use any other media player, or even build one with raspberry pi.
