it's functional. nowhere pretty like watch os. And honestly that's what matters the most.
Yeah, mostly. Except for when they don't. This isn't the venue for a Garmin rant, so I'd just direct folks to the Garmin forums for a good read.

More works than doesn't which is why I'm still wearing a Garmin, but I'm ready to move on.

BTW, your Ironman reference is specious. Apple/Nike aren't aiming for that segment with this model. Can't say what they'll do in the future, but Apple hasn't typically gone much for the fringe use cases.

of course not but if your going to run a marathon with GPS and youre not a very fast runner there is a good chance that the apple watch will die on you.
What is the battery life WITH a phone associated with it? I know they say ~5hrs without a phone, but what is it with a phone nearby as you'd typically expect a 4hr+ marathoner to carry in a Spibelt or armband?

So it's not the best sports watch by any means.
Who's been claiming it is?
