    I've got a fitbit and it's fine but the stats are a bit lacking. I'm getting back into my running and want something that gives me more information about my health, exercise etc. I've heard the Apple Watch 3 is quite good now and is particularly good for exercise and reporting on your stats.

But now I'd like to be able to cast to it from my phone or other bluetooth device, or play directly to it from any device on my network.

    Our application is out for limited beta testing (1 user) and the saved files are typically 2Gb.
