The short hand is hours. The long hand is minutes. The fast hand is seconds.

You got this. :thumb:

:lol: Thanks. Do you have any case or screen protector on yours? I'm thinking of getting one but don't see many options that are good for swimming as I plan on using this for that as well. I hear some trap water in them, etc.

Mine is the space black stainless steel with the matching Apple link bracelet. The case on the stainless steel is DLC coated so it’s very hard to scratch for the most part. The glass on the stainless model is sapphire witch is also highly scratch resistant so to answer your question, no I don’t use any kind of case or screen protector. If I were to use it while swimming though I’d switch to the sport band that comes with them since the link is not made to be swimmer in.

I got the sport band for that reason, and as I shared previously, was to use this primarily to track my workouts so I knew I'd be getting it wet. Not having much luck researching reviews for protectors that are good for swimming unfortunately.

Personally, I don’t think I’d bother. Adding extra bulk to it would annoy me.

I've never had a cover on my apple watch. I snagged it opening a door over the weekend, broke the band, and it fell face first on the concrete getting a small scratch on the face, so I probably should have, but even now I have no plans on buying one.

I also upgraded my wife and my iPhones last night. We were planning on holding off and getting Pro Maxs, but I realize I spend most of my time at home where I have my laptop and iPad next to me and I don't have any real need for the bigger screen, so we each grabbed a blue 12 Pro. I regret not thinking this through earlier and preordering it. Now I need to wait until Mid November.

Have a picture you can share? Curious what a swan dive face first onto concrete does to it.

It’s not as bad as I would have thought. Just a small scratch on the bottom of the screen that can be seen at certain angles.

Thanks for posting. All things considered, that's not bad for eating concrete.
