oh, enable the Wolf Pack some more!

Per the the latest FDX FOM, shouldn't the Apple Watch be not allowed by the captain?

I'm holding out for a GPS version, whether that be 2, 3GS, whatever, but you're making it more challenging.

It would be nice, same with glucose and other sensors.
But historically Apple waits until THEY are ready for a certain feature to be present in software/hardware.
You can wait a while for the one you want.

Crew Show is GREAT on the Watch.

I am liking the Watch, and not just for my software.
Lets you keep you phone in your pocket more.
As one pundit said, it is a digital filter.
Just as connected, but bothered less.

I buy my wrist watches at Target, typically $10 specials. When the battery dies, it hits the garbage and I buy another one. We have clocks everywhere in the cockpit, I don't need one on my arm.

I don't wear one at all at home. Why would you? You don't have to be anywhere for the most part in this job on your days off.....

I imagine that we will look back and see that the "watch" part of smart watches is the smallest part of their functionality.
