This week we discuss the Apple Watch and we examine what apps we used the most and how we use them. Are there any app favorites and could we be without the Apple Watch. Watch bands have become quite a popular thing to have and we have multiple ones.

Listener question: Chris asks How would you manage a fitbit in iOS? Fitbit has its own app ‎Fitbit: Health & Fitness on the App Store but all the health data is maintained in the FitBit app and not the Apple Health app. There are many 3rd party apps that will sync with the health app including: ‎Power Sync for Fitbit on the App Store

Dave has a new Samsung 32” monitor and is loving it for his Mac. 32" UJ590 UHD Monitor Monitors - LU32J590UQNXZA But did you know that you can use it with your iPad? The image is crisp and for a much lower price is a great option for a large screen with the iPad.

Is iTunes Match really needed at this point? This article talks about widespread issues with the service and many users were frustrated. If you have Apple Music at this point it may not be really worth it and a redundant service but those who dont subscribe like what it does if its still going to be around. We discussed this.
