Had to revise my score for the right reasons

Look, I had a Fitbit for my first smart watch experience and I learned the app and found it to be very user friendly and the Watch I had (Charge 3) while basic by Apple standards, just did what it was supposed to do and without interruption.

When I got the Apple Watch I just thought it would be an easy transition for me because I’d owned Apple products for a decade at that point. It was NOT easy for me. It was so convoluted and made finding basic statistics an Easter egg hunt.

I’ve since more or less brought myself up to speed on the system and how it functions and I am revising my score to a 4 from a 2. Misses a 5 because I still feel the basics could be found on the iPhone app with greater ease if they wanted to show them to you without making the app an advertisement of its depth, which is objectively impressive but still daunting for the new user.

A mess

The integration between apple watch and iPhone is s royal mess. Some settings are controlled from this app, some from the health app, some from third party apps, some from the watch and some combinations of the above.
Worst, by far, is the Sleep ... function (it's not an app, though it has an icon on the watch's app list, what is it?). You set a fixed schedule that you will *never* diverge from. Well, occasionally it'll detect you have gotten up early (say, to catch a flight) and offer to suspend sleep mode early, but it's incredibly rare, and while your watch/phone are in sleep mode, they're pretty non-functional. The watch won't unlock the phone, so in mask times, you end up punching your carefully chosen password in under the watchful eyes of a dozen CCTV cameras.
For odd reasons I can't search for Watch and find this app on my phone, I have to dig it out from where I stashed it years ago when iOS installed it and I didn't have a watch, but that's clearly my fault.
The idea that everything on your watch is controlled from the watch app is fine, but it's not really implemented here, especially where third party apps are concerned. And the Sleep function, lordy what a abhorrent disaster!

Not great with Siri in the car, or while using phone.

I’m not sure if I’m missing something. But wearing my watch and using Apple car play for calls is difficult to impossible, when using Siri.
I can’t ask Siri to call ____, while driving. I have to say it into the watch, and it only has the call in the watch. To make a call through my car, I have to use the screen on my dashboard while driving. It’s not safe.
I also can’t use Siri on my phone while using my watch, and I can’t ask Siri to do something on my phone, through my watch.
So basically if I’m wearing my watch, Siri is useless for everything but the watch.
