I can't get what the Health app on Apple Watch (Series 1) adds to what the Health app on the iPhone already does, since I have my iPhone in my shirt pocket wherever I go. I know it can measure your heart rate. But does it add useful information to the Health app that the iPhone doesn't already give me?
I also don't get why neither Watch nor iPhone will sync active energy calories properly to MyFitnessPal (where I log calories) even though it syncs the steps properly. So I have to use MapMyRun to sync workouts. If the Health app synchronized calories properly, it would be better because it constantly monitors.
I sometimes wonder if I should upgrade Apple Watch to a newer version than series 1
So far I've definitely found some useful things with the watch, including: (1) using it as an iPhone camera remote (it's cool), (2) on the train I can hop around music playlists without taking the iPhone out , (3) it is easy to dismiss and trash certain emails and messages, (4) it is easy to track the weather.
