Default the sw2 is evolving right infront of our eye

Look at it now. Custom watch widgets. We can make custom backgrounds. We have a pedomater. We have a seconds widget that counts up to 60. Numerous new clock faces. I mean heck, I have a green digital clock widget. I mean we have seen this evolve into a much more fleshed out smart watch in a 2 month span it's been amazing

I belive the smartwatch 2 Will age much much more gracefully than any other smartwatch.

Its getting customization like the pebble , but with a touch screen thats even colored!

I agree. It's come along nicely. Hopefully it continues for awhile longer.

I must say, being able to control my music directly from the watch face is the best part for me. Now I really like my watch.

It does: Walkmate with widget on the smartwatch...
Although the pedometer isn't integrated in the smartwatch, it does use the app installed on your phone and it works pretty well.

I agree, the SW2's pedometer widget works rather well. I use it daily.

Why would a smartwatch need a pedometer?? If you have your phone in your pocked why not let your phone do it? And if the sw2 can utilize it and display it on its screen why not use that?

The only thing I hate with this watch is that it has no multitasking so whenever I'm using certain apps like pedometer and exit the app to change music the pedometer will restart at 0

Walkmate doesnt work at all for me - on my feet all day and says 85 steps. I use remote widget to push my S health info to watch. works much better.
