    "I am a small female and the 34mm watch is the perfect size. I did not want the bulky-ness of its competitors. I would have actually preferred if the watch was even a little smaller. The band has proven to bit too long and the arm fastener does not keep it in place. The material of the band is really soft but it does catch a decent amount of lint over time. Overall very nice looking watch and extremely light and comfortable. It does not bother me at all when I sleep. - The hour and minute hands are controlled automatically through the app. I had zero problems setting up the watch and have had zero issues with connectivity to my iPhone (running iOS 10). - I have showered with the watch and had no condensation (as customers have experienced before Nokia bought Withings) - Sleep tracking does not seem very accurate; so far has not been able to detect that I was awake despite pushing the button to check the time... EDIT: Even after 2 weeks of wear, the watch does not provide accurate sleep data"

    "Simple, grade school level learning, which is exactly what I needed to learn to read music. It gets pretty deep into different notes, what they mean , why they look like they do, etc. I found it quite interesting and helpful as I've been wanting to learn to read music since I'm self taught on the guitar."

    "Let me start by saying that I am first time Fitbit and Apple watch user. I couldn't find a lot of reviews comparing the two, so I decided to purchase both and return one of them. Which one is better? Well that depends on what you're using it for. A little about me: I'm a 29 year old guy who works out 3-5 days a week with weights and runs 2-4 miles a day at an 8:30-9:00 minute pace. I work as a Resident Physician in a busy ER and originally wanted a pedometer see how much I walk in a given work day. Appearance and build quality: Winner- Apple First up was the Fitbit charge 2. The packaging was great, very "Apple" like, but the build quality of the device left something to be desired. The band is made of a comfortable silicone and the display appears to be a "cheap" appearing plastic. While the device won't impress on looks, it is somewhat low profile and and comfortable on the wrist. The screen itself isn't the most responsive, but it works well enough. The display is bright and easily visible. I did not have trouble seeing the screen outdoors."

    "Dolmetsch Online is an invaluable guide which I use primarily to read sheet music. The website contains dozens of helpful links, of which I've bookmarked more than a few. I'm a part-time instructor on the side and I always encourage students to refer to this website to help them learn to read sheet music. There is such a wealth of free material that it would be foolish to not take advantage of this great resource!"

    "Oh boy, I am familiar with r/music and this is not the place to learn sheet music. It is more about posting individual songs and circlejerking over artists. It is probably the last place I would go to learn sheet music."
