I am using my Apple Watch on a daily basis. It adds the convenience of having all notifications on the wrist. I have never missed another call or an appointment since I wear the Apple Watch. I also use it for running. The GPS and Altimeter are tempting new additions in the Apple Watch upgrade. I might have to trade up.
The unveilin of the new Apple Watch could be during the iPhone 7 event on September 6.
