OK, now a bit of reality here. Has anyone even seen the size of these watches. You need a needle to get to use it, the icons are so small that you would never get the right one. I don't know about others, but I have to use a stylus to use my mobile phone to type or use all the icons, so I know I would be useless using the iphone watch. Also, you have to have a BIG iphone so that it syncs with it, and uses the sim card with the phone. Ok it can take your pulse and lets you know that you have fallen down, and lots of other fancy things, but I think I will wait until our devices come up with this sort of stuff before I go rushing off to get the iphone, new one now worth nearly $2000, so it could be an expensive exercise.

Here's a link to a great review from the New York Times.... you know the fake news. https://www.nytimes.com/2018/09/19/tech ... ealth.html

The most interesting part maybe this: "There is one demographic that may be more interested in the watch for health reasons: the elderly. Apart from the electrical heart sensor, the new watch can detect when its owner has taken a nasty fall. The feature is turned on by default for people 65 and older (based on the birth date they entered into the watch’s software), and the watch will automatically call emergency services and send a message to your emergency contact if you remain immobile for a minute after a fall.

I struggled to trigger the fall detector. In the name of journalism, I took several dives at home onto my mattress, a couch and a dog bed to try to get it to work.

I also headed to a rock climbing gym, where I climbed up six walls and fell onto a padded mattress onto my side and onto my back. No dice. Last, I clambered atop the gym’s tallest wall — about 17 feet high — and dropped down. When I landed, the watch vibrated and chirped. Alas, it was only a notification alerting me that someone had liked a photo on my dog’s Instagram account."
