    Great looking shave and photo Evan. You’re getting the Hawk dialed.

    Same watch here Jeff. I was thinking on the Watch Series 6 for the same reason. Lifelong 'chronic asthmatic bronchitis' sufferer. Have a pulse ox meter on my desk and in the travel bag. $30 for a good one on Amazon, others even less. My asthma is well controlled these days, light prescriptions (as dosages go) help immensely. But....was a test subject in the 70s for sure while doctors 'practiced' medicine trying to see what did/didn't work. Warning label precautions, yeah, been there.

    My bigger problem is that I'm so used to it....sometimes I don't notice the slight degradation of the pulse ox measurement falling even 1 point (I just muscle through it). And when I finally do, sometimes it's tough. That's why I keep those around.

    Moving in the right direction is awesome Evan! Great setup for the G7DC.

    Very nice! Love the color contrast.

    I am not going to go into a biblical discussion. I will say that nothing surprises me any more as far as what any man is capable of doing.

    Wow....another great timepiece! I'm way too rough on watches for a wood one (or a nice dress one). I'd say at least once a week I have to check whatever watch I'm wearing to see if it survived smashing into a door frame, door end, falling off the desk/counter onto tile, breaking the band and it hitting the pavement....etc....ad nauseam constantly. Sure....should probably take it off, but there's countless times the watch has been verifiable body armor! :happy102:

    Wow..figured this issue out finally. Apple won't show a day/date option for a complication....if you don't use (or at least have installed) their calendar app. Which....I didn't, I use a 3rd party calendar app, and mirror notifications to the watch. Now the Apple calendar app is installed on my iPhone, but....disabled and hidden (but still gives me the Watch complication option). Weird, but works.

    Glad you figured it out. I never used that Face but just installed it after updating to watch os7. It’s a really cool setup.

    what is you next plan for shaves now you've reached 100 on each open blade?:)

    The complications can be endless once you consider an app on your iPhone could have a matching watch app. Some apps can be a complication, others have to be in 'the dock'.

    Information overload (still like it tho'). Another huge side benefit I've found.....a vibrating smart watch to wake me up, or the light beep from my Citizen watch, is SO much nicer than any desk/nightstand clock alarm.

    I need to correct you. I am over 200 shavette shaves and over 200 straight shaves which is over 400 open blade shaves. Specifically, I have completed 201 shavettes and 206 straights for a total of 407 open blade shaves.

    well gents i am going to profess.i have used the schick razor now for 5 shaves and i am totally impressed with it's performance.the blade has stood up well and it's not the blade it once was in the fabled 70s .true bbs shaves,comfortable and efficient.my only slight stubble comes from protecting a vulnerable area,which has since improved.had i been a newbie this set up would have scored a 10.fabulous safe shaves with fantastic results..of course if i were a newbie it would have taken longer to build the skin tolerance up ..is the "G"as good as an "E".don't know.is a new sc as good as a ranger tech? if you are in the sweet spot i guess that's irrelevant.schick injectors are fantastic razors and i am glad i gave them a second chance.:)..cheers gents..

    The alarm on the Apple Watch is fantastic. I like being able to set my phone on silent all the time and have the notifications for mail, messages, phone calls etc come through the watch. This setup allows me to avoid looking at my phone constantly.
