Tim is a free­lance tech writer and long­time iPhone user, and has a per­sonal in­ter­est in the new gen­er­a­tion of in­te­grated wearable de­vices that aim to re­li­ably mon­i­tor and im­prove over­all health and fit­ness. His reg­u­lar ex­er­cise rou­tine in­cludes run­ning, cy­cling, bad­minton, CrossFit and strength­train­ing, and he is a reg­u­lar par­tic­i­pant in Bath’s an­nual half­marathon. In the course of these ac­tiv­i­ties he has tested and re­viewed a num­ber of wearable mo­tion track­ers in­clud­ing the Jaw­bone UP24, Mis­Fit Flash, Garmin Vivoactive, Fit­bit Charge HR and Fit­bit Surge. For this fea­ture he tested the Ap­ple Watch over a num­ber of weeks in or­der to com­pare his ex­pe­ri­ence with other mar­ket-lead­ing wear­ables and eval­u­ate the pros and cons of the Ap­ple Watch when used solely as a fit­ness de­vice.
