James Gale Managing Editor The Apple Watch has been key in my re-acquaintance with health and fitness. This wonderful wearable has become my trainer and my motivator. I get genuinely cross with myself if I don’t close my three rings every day! By coupling the Activity app and MyFitnessPal, I have managed to get myself somewhere close to fitness. Martin Smith Group Senior Designer Most of my activities are cycling-based, so I use apps like Strava, Zwift and Garmin Connect on my iPhone, iPad and Macs to record or analyse training rides and races. I also use my Apple Watch for Swimming workouts and Running. The Watch has been a really useful piece of wearable tech. I definitely wouldn’t be without it. Alyssa Falcon Staff Writer I’m a runner.

Apple Music: 40 million tunes, bands from all over the world, a wealth of music to; what? What does anyone do with that many songs, albums and bands? I can spend hours with Apple Music, not listening to it, but picking through it all, never settling long enough to play anything and if I do start up an album, I’m usually distracted by something else before the first track is halfway through.
