When I first lost the weight over 5 years ago, I relied on a pedometer to make sure I would get over 10,000 steps a day. It worked and kept me motivated, but it was easy to lose and the battery would go rather quickly.
I eventually upgraded to a FitBit Charge and that was a big upgrade from the pocket pedometer. I actually had three FitBits over the last couple years. It was cool as it would vibrate on my wrist whenever I reached my goal of 10,000 steps. The only thing I didn't use the FitBit for was to track the sleep, which didn't interested me.
I've been using Apple's products for years. I use the Mac almost exclusively, I love my iPhone, so I thought I would love the Apple Watch. Unfortunately, it wasn't the case.
It's not that Apple didn't make a good product this time around, it's just that everything that the watch does, the iPhone does better. The Activity app, the reason I purchased the watch in the first place, worked for the most part. In fact, the steps were equal to the steps my old pedometer was recording. The Activity app also reminds you to stand for a minute for 12 hours of the day, another cool feature. This is a great feature for someone like me, as I sitting in an office.
