  1. Nice, it that a Martin? Dave...
  2. So far, using the Apple watch all day the lowest I've gotten it to at the end-of-the-day is 26%. That's from 6:00am - 11:00pm. Dave...
  3. Yes, the GBS is Black. I know it should be green, but its still a nice pen. Here it is next to my gen Omas & MB 75th Annv. Dave...
  4. BTW, these are the adapters I bought and they fit! http://www.ebay.com/itm/181767792378 Dave...
  5. MOAB, The large size is 167mm. Not sure if that's big enough for you, but they have different styles and some come in different sizes. You have to check each one on their size options. Dave...
  6. Of course it will fit. 1st he needs to buy the new strap adapters. Then you can get any strap for it. Just check Fleabay. :-) Dave...
  7. Well, Apple says its 'Waterproof' but only light water, like rain. So no Diving with this one! Dave...
  8. So, as some of you may have read, I bought the Apple Watch. I decided I wanted a heavier Shark Mesh bracelet, over the Milanese Loop bracelet that came with it. So I ordered a Strap Code Retro Ploprof Shark Mesh Band, Polished 24mm. This one has the 'Seat Belt' buckle. It takes a little bit getting used to putting it on, but so far I like it a lot! The bracelet is 83grams in weight, 4.0mm thick mesh & has 6 micro adjustable holes. I ordered the size I needed, 127mm x 145mm and it fits Perfect, using the middle micro adjustment hole. Its nice you can order 3 different sizes so you don't have to cut any links, hopefully. I think its well worth the cost. Ordered it last Tuesday, arrived today! Dave...
  9. Nah, I don't need a Face Time Camera in mine. So far, I got no complaints with my Apple Watch. I know newer models will come out and if / when a newer model comes out that I think I'll need, then I'll just get it. Just like any other Smartphone. Sell-it on the secondary market and move-on. No big deal! BTW, if Apple is already saying sometime in 2016, it will most likely be very late in 2016 or early 2017. Also the watch displayed in that ad (with the landscape timeface) is the new Watch OS2 coming out soon. It's called Nighttime mode! Dave...
  10. I have a Gen MB 75th Anniversary pen and love it. I also have a really nice Rep MB George Bernard Shaw limited edition Roller Ball. I found the Schmidt ceramic roller insert #5888 fits this rep pen. The inserts do not have any threads on them and the original insert on the rep Shaw pen uses them. I found that I can just push and screw-in the inserts and the pen cuts the threads in the plastic insert and it’s a perfect fit. The pen is nice & heavy, Very Smooth insert makes writing a breeze. I’ll try to find out where I bought the pen from. Dave...
  11. I too am very sorry to hear this tragic news. I can’t image going through this. MOAB, thanks for posting this, the gesture of offering the forums help & support. I’m sure Legend is very grateful to have friends and support during this time of tragedy. Dave…
  12. Wrist Shot: Yes, I tried the Pebble 1st just to see if this was something I'd really be interested in. But I quickly found the Pebble just sends a copy of a message to the watch, but you can't do anything with it. I guess if the Pebble even offered some 'Canned' replies that would be good. But they don't so I found the Pebble to be useless and wanted more. So I ordered the Apple and so far, its good (for me). Dave....

    Don't hate me: Dave...
  14. OK, I’ll probably get bashed in here for this by the ‘purest’ , but I’d thought I would give My personal assessment of the new Apple Watch (for me). So I’ve had my new watch for 3 days and so far, I’m glad I bought it. I’ve seen many posting on different forums on people bashing anyone who would buy one. They spout-off many different reasons like these: High Price – Well most of us in here have spent Way more than this on a watch, including me. I’ve spent 5x as much on just a Stainless-Steel watch (Super Franken 16610) and that does nothing more than tell time. But I don’t’ care, it’s what I like. The battery will die, then what – Just like any other Apple product, it will be replaceable. If not by Apple, there will be plenty of 3rd parties offering this service. I’ve already seen the Break-down video of the watch and the battery will be replaceable. I already have a Smartphone, why do I need a Smartwatch - Well for Me at least, I’ve already found that I can keep my phone either on my desk or in my pocket without looking at it. Now that may not be a convenient you want or need for the cost of the watch. But it is nice not needing to use the phone for most of my day. It will be obsolete in the next 12-18 months – Really, I don’t see why. Sure, Apple will come out with a newer model with more features, but so what. Don’t new watches come out every few years, or upgraded one’s. Do you feel you Must have the new one when it does? The way I see it, my Apple Watch will do tomorrow, everything it still does today and even more with additional 3rd party applications. So for me (so far) I love my new watch. Yes, to me it is a watch! I’ve loved watches all my life and I consider myself as a watch purest, but I also still consider the Apple watch, a watch. It’s a different kind of watch, but since it still tells time, it’s a watch. Plus it does so much more and for me, it’s worth having. We’ll see down the road if I’ve changed my mind in any way and if so, I will post another update. But so far I like it. I can control which emails I want to know about and then take a quick look at it, without pulling out my phone. I can reply too if needed. I can receive, send and reply to text messages without the phone. I can even make & receive phone calls. Now granted the speaker is small and not the highest quality sounding, but it is usable while driving and the person on the other end said I sounded just find too. Yes I know, I still have to have the iPhone with me (within Bluetooth range) but that’s ok to me. Besides, since the watch can’t do Everything the phone can, your still goanna need one. At least for now until technology improves more. BTW, I bought the 42mm Stainless Steel with the Milanese loop band. Dave...
  15. Way over-priced, but still a good looking watch! Dave...
