It’s one year that I’ve had my Apple Watch, and people still ask me “How is it?”
“I love it”, I always reply.
It’s as simple as that. It’s the best watch I’ve ever owned because it’s the one I *enjoy* wearing the most. Other watches just tell time (and maybe the date); this watch does that, plus gives me weather at a glance (that’s important in London) and is my credit card, on tap, on my wrist, always.
Yes, the watch does many more things, but those are the incremental functionality over and above a dumbwatch that have me hooked.
Haters ask “But would you turn around and go get it if you forgot it?” Well, no. But then, I wouldn’t go back for my snazzy Swiss time piece either. It’s a watch – not my primary communications device (aka iPhone).
Will I buy a new one when they come out? You bet. And they’re only going to do more things better, while getting faster, sleeker and sexier.
So, if you’ve been sitting on the fence, I’d say go buy one. And a year from now you’ll be glad you did.
I hear your final doubts: “But will an Apple Watch make me younger, thinner, richer and more popular?” Yes, it absolutely will. It also offers a time travel via a secret key press combo. But I’ll save that secret for another post.
Until then, go get your watch on.
