Anyone know if Apple fixed the LTE on the watch?

Apple released a software update that fixed the issue everyone was reporting on, namely that the watch would connect to "captive portal" wifi networks (e.g. starbucks where you have to click through) and have a wifi connection but no real connection to the internet. Now it only relies on wifi if it can get to the internet. So, if you have your phone on you, it uses that. If you are in range of wifi you've connected to before and that has internet access, it uses that. As a last resort, it connects to LTE.

I have one and the LTE mostly works. I routinely wear it to the gym and on outdoor runs without my phone. It sometimes takes a minute or two to acquire a signal if you go somewhere without coverage. I'm guessing this is a tradeoff for battery life (check network less often = more battery), and probably depends on network/signal strength to begin with. The only place this is really an issue for me is the first floor of my old, concrete-and-stone gym, where I sometimes don't have a signal (I could fix this by connecting to wifi but haven't gotten around to it).

For a tiny little internet-connected computer+health monitor/coach on my wrist, I'm very happy.

Hybrid watch strategy looks like it's coming together

I'll probably regret not seeing the forest here.

(%'s held @ cost, PV allos are slightly 2 significantly higher. includes a slowly dwindling cash pile.)

FOSL seems to be executing extremely well against their strategy.  They are first to market with fashion first connected watches.  Apple and other manufactures are tech companies essentially trying to strap phones onto wrists, and their approach to women's watches is to Shrink it & Pink it.  Only a subset of the functionality is actually useful for the mass market.  FOSL is focusing their offerings around fashion with only the essential functionality.

FOSL is also defining the hybrid watch market.  They are basically the only player in this space.  It is growing slowly but there is a long runway for this offering.
