Now you can use Runkeeper without your iPhone thanks to Apple Watch Series 2 upgrade — The best reason to buy an Apple Watch Series 2 is so you can track workouts without carrying on iPhone. The watch’s native Workout app logs runs, swims, and bike rides with help from built-in GPS, but if you’ve been tracking exercise with a third-party app for years, switching is a pain. Runkeeper just updated its Watch app with support for the Series 2 so you can log your runs, no iPhone required.
Tim Cook denies that Apple Watch sales are tanking — Apple CEO Tim Cook refutes the data from the IDC research group that says Apple Watch sales dipped 71% year-over-year from 3.9 million units in the this quarter of 2015 to 1.1 million units in the third quarter of 2016.
In an email to Reuters, Cook wrote that said the gadget’s sell-through — a measure of how many units are sold to consumers, rather than simply stocked on retailers’ shelves — reached a new high in quarter three of 2016.
