Three essentials

I usually have three pieces of technolgy thar I cannot or would not replace with anything else. In number of hours I use them each day they are:

- Apple Watch with LTE
- Microsoft Surface Pro
- Apple iPhone X

And my greatest affection belongs to that watch. I wear it 23 hours each day. Not on the same level, but quite important is Surface Pro. And the iPhone X stands for any dual camera iPhone (7 Plus, 8 Plus or X). You have to have an iPhone for Apple Watch. I could go with a 2016 7 Plus, but not an older watch without LTE. I also keep trying other computers than Surface Pro but always come back.

I started using a Surface Pro for work and may have been influenced in my decision to get one by you ;-)

Overall a very good machine, especially since I travel a lot and it’s light, but good for productivity.

Two issues though:

1. Touch on Windows sucks and is not very precise on Surface. So seems to be both Hardware and Software related.

2. face recognition is awful. 8/10 times i have to use my pin as the camera wouldn’t recognize me.

Not having a surface pro I would replace that on my list with the Apple AirPods.

Touch works for me in some programs and not in others. Explorer is a joke. Windows Hello works 8/10 for me.

Declan. Airpods are great but they are not essential to me. Sometimes I am not using them for weeks. Just today I wore them outside and it was difficult to deal with outside noise. Tomorrow I am going to use the PLT 6300.

It takes one hour to charge the watch for 23 hours?

@Karsten: Yes - using Udoq, i.e. Superfast.

Karsten, yes. And udoq uses the standard charger. It would take somewhat longer from zero, but the battery is never depleted when I put it on.
