That's a cool feature, I think.

Article headline says "for vlogging", but you do whatever you want.

if you buy for just that, yes

if you're trying to be funny, you're not

if you look at all the things the apple watch can do, it's a great deal, and the only serious choice for a smartwatch

But I bet people who get one don't even use half of what it can do. And that's probably the same case with smartphones.

I love my Series 4. I mostly use it for exercise tracking, timers, and a handy way to tell my Hue lights to turn on and off. I have used it as a viewfinder for my phone a few times though. It also works as a great remote control for my podcast app.
I'm sorry Dave...
