    In my opinion, the apple company is inventing too much new, although this is understandable, since they are trying to become the best on the market without question, because at the moment there are many other not unknown companies, regarding the watch, I had 3 watches, I don’t understand why add so much new, I think that this reset button is not needed, all models have many different useful functions, I think that should have been enough. ;-)
