The Apple Watch is more than a timepiece and a fashion accessory. The watch is designed to be a very personal assistant, from paying for groceries or a coffee to keeping a detailed record of your daily physical activity. Author Scott McNulty has organized the book around events and activities, showing how to use the watch in various settings. The book starts off with an essential “Apple Watch 101” section that gets you up and running quickly. You learn the watch’s gestures and presses, how to use the digital crown, and how to change the band, for example. Scott then looks at how to use the watch in different settings. At work, how to set tasks and check email. After work, how to meet up with friends, find a place to eat, and get directions. At the gym, how to monitor your workout activities and monitor your heart rate. And you don’t have to be at the gym. Learn how to use the watch to track your daily physical activities, from how much you walk each time to gentle reminders to get up and move if you’ve been sitting too long. Organized around your life, this book will help you get the most from your Apple Watch. Readers will learn how to: * Set up the watch and pair it with their iPhone. * Manage messages, calls,notifications, and mail. * Make sketches and use as a walkie-talkie. * Monitor their workout activities and set and achieve goals. * Use Apple Pay. * Listen to music, using Maps, take photos, and more.

The world of watches is in transition; so-called "smart watches" are playing a larger role. However, classic timepieces with mechanical movement will not disappear from people's wrists, because the ticking of a mechanical watch has been and will continue to be the heartbeat of human culture. After the success of The Watch Book in 2015, the new follow-up volume, just as beautifully done, is a must-have. Informative text and many pictures highlight 22 additional watch brands and show their unique features and quirks. However, this book includes a much broader spectrum of timepieces than the previous volume: along with many watches that fall into the "affordable luxury" segment, there are timepieces from the chronometric crème de la crème. Along with longstanding traditional brands, the book profiles newer ones whose unusual designs and exclusive technical developments have contributed to the history of the watch. This volume also includes a helpful glossary of important terms, making The Watch Book II an absolute must for both timepiece experts and collectors and those new to the world of watch artistry.

In Zimmer 217 ist etwas aufgewacht. Etwas Böses. Brady Hartsfield, verantwortlich für das Mercedes-Killer-Massaker mit vielen Toten liegt seit fünf Jahren in einer Klinik für Neurotraumatologie im Wachkoma. Seinen Ärzten zufolge wird er sich nie erholen. Doch hinter all dem Sabbern und In-die-Gegend-Starren ist Brady bei Bewusstsein – und er besitzt tödliche neue Kräfte, mit denen er unvorstellbares Unheil anrichten kann, ohne sein Krankenzimmer je zu verlassen. Ex-Detective Bill Hodges, den wir aus Mr. Mercedes und Finderlohn kennen, kann die Selbstmordepidemie in der Stadt schließlich mit Brady in Verbindung bringen, aber da ist es schon zu spät.
