    No, it seems it was limited to the series 4. Just another one of the advantages of not buying the latest cutting edge device. I suppose the same could be said about the latest macOS or indeed any new tech. Better to get the previous model or version that has already been de bugged, road tested and proven reliable.
    I'm just about ready to upgrade my iPhone 7 to the iPhone 8

    WOW!!! You must have a bunch of spare surplus cash burning a hole in your pocket or some tiny new feature that you just MUST have:

    It's really just a matter of life span. My battery is down to 86% of new capacity so it's either a new phone or a new battery. Mind you I usually buy my next iPhone model as second hand. It's easy enough to pick up a good one here in Bali if you know where to go.

    I gather you know about Apple's new battery replacement plan if it includes you:
    Apple’s $29 iPhone battery replacement program: Everything you need to know

    Sure a heck of a lot cheaper than the cost of a new iPhone 8.

    This little watch continues to surprise me. It gives you the option to reply to text messages and I have simply chosen pre installed responses in the past or dictated a response but yesterday I noticed the little symbol which I realised was a keyboard icon in a sort of diagonal position. So I selected that and was presented with a sort of grey box with a space button at the bottom. So I drew a vertical line on the screen with my finger and an "I" appeared in a text line at the top. Call me simple but I was amazed. I found I could draw letters almost as fast as writing and they are converted to text in the reply line above, including full stops.

    I'm sure I saw this option at some time but did not realize what it was for, probably in the first week or so when I was busy setting up all the other features and meant to get back to it but didn't until yesterday. It just goes to show it's good to check out the "Hidden Features" type articles that abound on the web. It can take a long time to discover them all on your own.

    There is one thing that puzzles me though:
    I definitely did not like the "Honeycomb" app view. So one day when I had accessed the grid view by pressing the crown I tried force touch (I try force touch on everything just to see what happens) and to my delight discovered I could change to list view. What puzzles me is that the App Layout preference in the iPhone Apple Watch app remains on the "Honeycomb" view. I though I would be able to change layout on the iPhone watch app or that at least the iPhone app would reflect my choice on the watch but no.
    Is this a glitch or have I overlooked something?

    No glitch that I am aware of. At least I have never figured out how to change it. I love the list view on my Apple Watch. I have slept with mine but decided there was really had nothing exciting to see in the data - sleep deep, get up every 2-3 hours to go to the bathroom, back to deep sleep - not exciting. I do swim with mine to keep track of my time and laps.

    Recommend using Onyx to clean your Mac.

    Yes I finally summed up the courage to swim with mine last week. I did clear the water twice just to be sure though.
    I'm using the Pillow app to monitor sleep because I used to snore a lot but that seems to have resolved. After monitoring for a couple of months i gave up. I get about 7 hrs with quality 85-95%. Not much to see there.
    Glad you like yours. I'm loving mine.
    PS. I don't get up for toilet at all.

    I think I'll just let the Medical Doctor members reply or comment to these comments in case there may be a medical condition for either case or situation.

    Trying to get back to the thread...

    The iPhone app for the  watch shows a list view when I tap on "My Watch" and scroll down. The layout screen on the iPhone shows the honeycomb because that display is where you can move icons around easier than trying to do that on the  watch itself. The list view on the  watch is always alphabetical and pretty much matches the "Installed On Watch" list on My Watch.
