    Now this is what actual review is !! Instead of showing how to open the box loud out !!

    I think my Apple Watch series 6 shows me more burned calories rather than what I have been burn during my strength training

  3. Allen Beaulieu on May 16, 2023 at 12:57 pm

    Great video, still would you tell me how to export the datas either from the watch or the phone for analysis?
    I would like to take a closer look at the data. I used to ba able to do that using a polar watch but I don’t know how to do that from apple products.
    Thank you

    great video!!

  5. Dead By Daylight on May 16, 2023 at 12:58 pm

    I got inflamation in my arm from my apple watch

  6. Poppy Kate on May 16, 2023 at 1:00 pm

    Mine won’t automatically detect when I’m working out ☹️

  7. Hesam Pirqadam on May 16, 2023 at 1:02 pm

    I m searching for a watch that can play music during the run. Any tip?

  8. Gary Traina on May 16, 2023 at 1:04 pm

    Can you add bowling?

    I have a question for you. I have a Polar watch and I want to change it maybe for an Apple. I like to see my heartbeat in % instead of BPM. Is is possible to change the heartbeat in % with the Apple Watch ? Thank you very much, very interesting video.

  11. Jona on May 16, 2023 at 1:06 pm

    Great video review. Lots of information to take forward. Been looking at the series 6 for a while now. In your opinion, would you say this watch is the best, overall for Swimmers..? I’ve been doing a lot of comparing of late! 🙈😄

  12. Prepare For Takeoff on May 16, 2023 at 1:07 pm

    I find the pool swim tracks inaccurately unless you are swimming breaststroke. Distance / laps completely off if not. Any thoughts ?

  13. Urbain Gwiza on May 16, 2023 at 1:07 pm

    Looking forward to your review of the Apple Watch Series 7 ! Would you say that the Nike Sport Band is the best choice for outdoor and indoor activities ?

  14. Robert Palmquist on May 16, 2023 at 1:11 pm

    I must have missed it. What app are you using to display the data tracked by the watch (the app with the maps and graphs)?

  15. Stephanie Eggers on May 16, 2023 at 1:11 pm

    Such a great review. I know I’m late to this but I’m looking into buying a smart watch now and your reviews are helping me answer questions I didn’t even know I had. The breakdown you did with battery drain was super informational, and coming from your video reviewing the Garmin Venu is helpful in making an informed decision. I’m incredibly grateful for how much effort you put forth in your videos. Thank you!

  16. Ray Cortopassi on May 16, 2023 at 1:11 pm

    You talk too fast. Can’t follow you 😟

  17. Jonny Bingham on May 16, 2023 at 1:13 pm

    How do you know though which sensor is the correct one? Let’s be honest – you don’t. It is weird to compare to your Garmin like the Garmin is 100% accurate. We are relying on our memory which can and does deceive us, and our "sense of what is right".

  18. sen fing on May 16, 2023 at 1:15 pm

    I wonder if they will ever be able to handle a "Pure Pulse" like Fitbit that is always checking vs. the 15 min interval when not in Exercise Mode on the Apple.

  19. Sebastian Aliaga on May 16, 2023 at 1:16 pm

    I have one question for you. Is there any app for the Apple Watch that can get all the metrics Gardien watches got?. For example. Body mass, energy an so on which are not available on native app

  20. JAMSAT SOLUTIONS LLC on May 16, 2023 at 1:19 pm

    Would you recommend for Swimming/Waterproof?

  21. filosvyz on May 16, 2023 at 1:20 pm

    My watch didn’t record my vo2 max… do u have any idea why that is so ?

  22. Brian Lusignan on May 16, 2023 at 1:20 pm

    Speak too fast, slow down to make sure the viewers are following your directives…

  23. moestluck on May 16, 2023 at 1:21 pm

    Nice video. Subscription for that!

  24. hockeytyme1 on May 16, 2023 at 1:21 pm

    Is there an app that will give me a email or downloadable detailed by second or minute line graph of my heart rate similar to what you have in your video?

  25. JB on May 16, 2023 at 1:23 pm

    I’m training for a marathon and particularly interested in AW6 battery life and accuracy. Ideally I’d like to just use GPS from phone tethered to AW6 like you mentioned to make sure it can last the marathon but I’m worried about accuracy. Were you able to compare accuracy using phone tethered to AW6 vs without and AW6 battery life difference ?

  26. Maestro Melcon on May 16, 2023 at 1:24 pm

    I love this video! I just ordered the Series 6 and love the look of
    this watch and don’t really want to cover it up in a protective case
    for this reason. I’m just curious as to your recommendations regarding
    protecting this with a screen protector or not.

  27. Bassem Usama on May 16, 2023 at 1:25 pm

    HUAWEI gt 2 pro vs samsung active 2 vs fitbit versa 2 or 3 which is the best watch for fitness performance please answer my comment as soon as possible 🙏 it will be very appreciated

  28. Joyce Ng on May 16, 2023 at 1:26 pm

    If I’m just walking, should I start that as a workout or just let my watch track it? & do you pause your workouts when taking your rests or just let it run?

  29. Jove Cvetanoski on May 16, 2023 at 1:26 pm

    does it support v02 max for running/cycling?

  30. p7reston777 on May 16, 2023 at 1:27 pm

    Wow that was an impressive review! I really appreciate your video!

  31. Sanidhya Shukla on May 16, 2023 at 1:28 pm

    You speak so fluently

  32. Raffi Cohen on May 16, 2023 at 1:29 pm

    I’m trying to find out if I need to spend the extra money to get the cellular version. I don’t mind battery drain however I want the Apple watch to be as accurate as possible when I go out for a run without my iPhone. Is the GPS version then enough? Thx

  33. Tony Tyler on May 16, 2023 at 1:30 pm

    just got my first apple watch and can’t believe i waited so long to get one, now i can’t see myself without one…meaning if i go back to android i’ll have to get a samsing watch

  34. Zully Hernandez on May 16, 2023 at 1:30 pm

    The detail and quality of this video is unmatched. Thanks for giving the nitty gritty in all those workout types!

  35. Bobby Blade on May 16, 2023 at 1:33 pm

    i cant live without my Fenix 6

  36. FREEDOM MATTERS on May 16, 2023 at 1:35 pm

    Battery Life 👎🏻 No decent Sleep stats 👎🏻 Twice the price of other sports watches 👎🏻 No thanks.

  37. Arley Cornell on May 16, 2023 at 1:37 pm

    This is an amazing review, super helpful

  38. Lernenz on May 16, 2023 at 1:38 pm

    great Video, especially because of the data. Damn good work:)
    But do you think there is a difference between accuracy of the heart rate between the SE and 6?
    Maybe there is one because of the configuration of the Sensors…

  39. Famously_Gifted on May 16, 2023 at 1:39 pm

    I love my red Apple Watch 7

  40. Michael Albrecht on May 16, 2023 at 1:40 pm

    What is the best running app for the Apple Watch in your opinion besides Strava

  41. Rishi Saravanan on May 16, 2023 at 1:41 pm

    do u know about hw 33 plus

  42. harvey on May 16, 2023 at 1:42 pm

    is that 40mm or 44mm?

  43. juan castro on May 16, 2023 at 1:43 pm

    Can you down load from Spotify?

  44. Arnout Boer on May 16, 2023 at 1:43 pm

    Hi there I am looking for a series 7 as replacement for my 945 due to changed ambition and requirements. But do want to know if I could receive an emergency call when doing laps in the pool on the LTE version. Assuming I have a subscription.

  45. Jonathan Marquez on May 16, 2023 at 1:43 pm

    Great video thanks

  46. dvracecom on May 16, 2023 at 1:44 pm

    How did you download the detailed heat rate from your watch for your comparison?

  47. Stephen Janes on May 16, 2023 at 1:50 pm

    When are you supposed to charge it lol

  48. Cgh R on May 16, 2023 at 1:50 pm

    I like that you’re very thorough but the main question from all the fit watches that you have the opportunity to review. Which one do you like snd use the most? Thanks please reply

  49. Daniel Swinger on May 16, 2023 at 1:51 pm

    I deliver for work and I get in and out of my truck about 15 times a shift. Will this track a lot of my drive before it recognizes that’s I’m driving?

  50. Daniel Jones on May 16, 2023 at 1:52 pm

    Thanks so much for this one again Des!
