Product Review - The Daniel Wellington Watch | That Dapper Chap onsale watches review

Product Review - The Daniel Wellington Watch Craig of That Dapper Chap reviews the Classic Warwick watch by Daniel Wellington. PRODUCT Daniel Wellington were kind enough to gift me the Classic Warwick watch, this will be the focus of this review.  Established in Uppsala in Sweden, just an hour’s drive from Stockholm, there is a story about how the watch came to be and their website states: “Filip onsale-watches-review-rid-0.html. rolex replica daytona 18k gold Tysander, the founder of Daniel Wellington, met an intriguing gentleman from the British Isles. The man had the inspiring ability to be gentlemanly but still relaxed and unpretentious. He had an impeccable style, and loved to wear his watches on old weathered Nato straps. His name? Well, Daniel Wellington, of course. A strong friendship emerged between the two, and our founder was inspired not only by the man’s many great life stories but also by his class and timeless style of fashion”.  I’m not sure how true this is as is reminiscent of The Great Gatsby story. A part of me likes to think it is, but only the people at Daniel Wellington know the truth about that one. The Classic Warwick by Daniel Wellington Daniel Wellington watches are manufactured and sent from Sweden and they are available at a few outlets but they do sell from their main website. They offer a range of mens and ladies watches and most come with interchangeable straps. Others are fitted with a leather strap and ea ch watch is available in silver or rose gold. The men's watch measures 40mm by just 6mm, making it a very thin watch. They are also water resistant, but they recommend that you avoid all contact with water.  All of the faces are in eggshell white which gives a very clean and crisp look. The ‘Classic’ range are named after British towns, and mine is the Classic Warwick with a green and blue Nato band in rose gold. They also now have a new collection called ‘Grace’ which has Roman numerals at the 12 and 6 and a slightly different strap consisting of leather and cotton. The DW Grace Collection PRICE Prices range from £149 for a Classic with a nato band to £179 for one with a full leather strap. The Grace collection are also priced at £179.  As we all know, we can buy a watch for as little as £20 with the top end being stratospheric. So, if you’re a guy on a budget, as I am Daniel Wellington may be a good choice for you.  F or me the price is reasonable. I’d see it as gift level, birthday, Christmas or maybe a wedding gift. It depends on how much you have in your wallet, but in my opinion the price is good for the quality of the watch. Some of the range of Daniel Wellington Watches PACKAGING & PRESENTATION I love the Daniel Wellington packaging. Mine arrived in a beautiful leather gift box which makes it feel like a real luxury item. In the box there is a manual, instructions and a 2 year guarantee. It also has replacement pins should you misplace yours. The beautiful Daniel Wellington leather presentation box PERFORMANCE With its preppy look, the Daniel Wellington watch is thin, I agree with their description in that it is 'elegant' and is suitable for every occasion.  The one thing that a watch should do is tell the time, and I found that it has impeccable timekeeping, in fact I use my Daniel Wellington to set the time on my other watches and clocks. Being thin the watch is also light and easy to wear. I find that it doesn't get in the way and it's a watch that you don’t ‘know’ you are wearing i.e. it isn't cumbersome and heavy. The strap is good quality too with the hardware matching the gold colour of the watch. This is a simple watch with lines instead on numbers, no frills, no dials, no buttons or other fancy bits which distract from its minimalistic design. PERTINENCY This watch is very ‘now’ the preppy style is very on trend as are watches with interchangeable straps. Since Timex introduced its Weekender with its selection of different straps other brands have latched on.  If you’re a trendy guy who cares about the details in his daily look this may be one for you to consider. There are many many different styles of strap on the market that fit this watch. This gives you the ability to match the watch to whichever outfit you put together. As I stated earlier, the watch is light and easy to wear, it’s not a watch that shouts ‘look at me’ it's way more discrete and subtle than that, so if you’re looking for a statement watch, this isn’t it.  However, your friends, colleagues and family will notice when you match the strap to your outfit. I often get comments to that effect.   My DW with a blue themed outfit PRO’s AND CONS As previously mentioned, the watch is lightweight and easy to wear. It doesn’t get in the way and it’s easy to forget that you’re wearing it. For me that’s a big plus. I would like to have a choice of face colour, the same way as you do with the Timex Weekender, maybe a cream, grey or black face. The interchangeable possibilities with that would be huge and I for one would be tempted to get all the colour faces! Instead of numbers the Daniel Wellington has markers in the form of gold lines. I'm okay with that, but some people may find it difficult to read the time, having said that I've never had an issue. Another enhancement may be a light. Unlike other watches it doesn't have one, so on occasion I have had to refer to my phone for the time as I couldn't see my watch. It’s a simple function and one that I think may enhance it. The very fact that you can change the straps to match any outfit and even make your own straps or have one-off straps made is a huge bonus as it makes it very personal to you. PEOPLE I often get comments on the watch, this is usually more to do with the strap due to the more sedate design of the actual watch face, as the strap is most noticeable part. The vast majority of people were complimentary of its appearance using words such as “clean looking” and “classy”. One person did say “It’s a little boring” and for some people it will be.   Another picture of my DW as posted to Instagram PRECIS Overall I’m a fan. The Daniel Wellington watch is cool, trendy and classy and the whole strap thing will get me every time. Its simplicity makes it appealing and it’s as noticeable as you want it to be. Play it down and wear it with a plain brown leather strap or get it noticed by popping on a bubble gum pink Nato band. Your choice!

What is the Apple Watch 2?

The Apple Watch 2 (or Apple Watch Series 2 to give it its official title) is the second version of the most successful smartwatch around. It’s since been replaced by the Apple Watch Series 3 but is still widely on sale.

The original Apple Watch was Apple’s first draft at a wearable, and plenty bought into the promise of a phone on your wrist. At Trusted Reviews we liked the look of it, but struggled to understand its purpose: It had health and fitness elements, but they were limited, and it didn’t offer water-resistance. In addition, the watchOS software was tricky to use, glitchy, and just didn’t do much. Interesting third-party apps were lacking at the time, too.

There are clear parallels to be drawn between the Apple Watch and the very first iPhone that was released almost a decade ago, which evolved into a superb product.

While the iPhone 7 didn’t meet our high expectations of it, the Apple Watch 2 has. All our concerns about the original have been addressed: watchOS is now intuitive and useful having had a number of updates; there are plenty of compatible apps; and the Apple Watch 2 is now properly water-resistant.

Apple recently released the  watchOS 4 operating system update for the Apple Watch 2. This brought with it a number of refinements and improvements, including a new Siri watch face, which uses Siri’s artificial intelligence to proactively bring useful information to your attention. There are also new Toy Story-themed watch faces, joining Mickey and Minnie Mouse.

Then there are improvements to the Activity app, including monthly goals and the ability to add additional exercises to the same workout, which is useful for triathletes and circuit trainers. There’s also new support for High Intensity Interval Training (HIIT). Apple announced support for a raft of new activities and sports at its September 12th announcement, where it also unveiled the Apple Watch Series 3 , including activities such as baseball, bowling and functional strength training.

A new Heart Rate app is also designed to make even more use of the optical heart rate monitor on the back of the Apple Watch. The new dedicated app will let you see your recovery and resting heart rate, and the Apple Watch will now also keep an eye on your heart rhythm, as well as letting you know of an escalated heart rates when not exercising. This is all part of a new Apple Heart Study , which could make strides in gaining better understanding of heart conditions.

There’s also going to be support for person to person Apple Pay payments, allowing you to use your Apple Watch 2 to send money to friends and family directly, with the money being held in an Apple Pay Cash wallet ready to be used just like a standard Apple Pay payment.

Apple Watch 2 – Design

The Apple Watch Series 2 looks almost identical to the original, and I don’t mind that at all. This remains my favourite smartwatch when it comes to looks, particularly since it isn’t as chunky as rival watches. It helps that I prefer square watches; those who prefer round ones might not be as kind.

The Watch 2 is a fraction thicker than the previous Watch, but not enough that you’d notice without seeing the two next to each other. The square screen with rounded glass edges make it simple to swipe up, down, left and right from the edge to provide additional shortcuts, and the rotating Digital Crown still works well as a method of zooming in and out, and general navigation.

The button just beneath the Digital Crown has been re-appropriated from a useless shortcut to contacts and on/off switch to a much more engaging way to scroll through the new apps dock (more details to follow).

You can opt for either the stainless steel or, slightly cheaper, aluminium chassis, and one of two sizes: 38mm and 42mm. The Series 2 is available in a range of colours: Gold, Rose Gold, Space Grey and Silver. This time there’s no expensive gold-plated model.

Instead, Apple has created a beautiful white ceramic smartwatch. The ceramic cast is treated at length at high temperature before it’s polished smooth. Not only does it look super-attractive, it’s four times tougher than the stainless steel model.

Standing out from the crowd does come at a price, though. The ceramic Apple Watch Edition costs more than three times as much as the standard versions – the 38mm one setting you back a cool £1,249.

Suffice to say, it isn’t necessary to spend such an amount for an Apple Watch that’s “tough”. I’ve dropped my aluminium Apple Watch on several occasions and regularly whack it against door frames; it doesn’t have a single scratch on the screen or body.

The headline feature for the Apple Watch 2 is water-resistance. Not only will it survive a brief dunk in the bath, it’s now fit for the sea. Apple claims it can withstand up to 50m of water – although we wouldn’t advise that you go scuba-diving with it just yet. It’s meant to survive the rigours of arms swinging through water, as opposed to being plunged into the depths.

An Apple representative explained to TrustedReviews that the Apple Watch 2 is fit for swimming in a pool for as long as you want, but can also deal with seawater. It was tested on hundreds of swimmers before release, and it provides accurate exercise readings as well as surviving the wet stuff without any bother.

The screen locks when under water and so won’t be usable, but it will continue to track activity. Once out of the water, the Apple Watch Series 2 performs a little party piece to rid the water from its speaker grilles: it plays sound at various volumes and frequencies to expel liquid like a clam.

There’s a wide range of straps available for the Series 2, both from Apple and third parties – with an even bigger selection on offer than before – and they’re the best way of making an Apple Watch “yours”. As well as the relationship with luxury brand Hermès, Apple has also joined forces with Nike to launch the Apple Watch Nike+. This comes with a special strap, with compression-moulded perforations to make it more breathable – ideal for athletes – along with some exclusive Nike watch faces and apps pre-installed.

For those who intend to swim regularly with the Apple Watch 2 I’d recommend a silicone strap, rather than the metal or nylon options. The Sports strap doesn’t retain any water, so you won’t be left with a damp wrist all day after a brief plunge and are more comfortable as a result.
