I’ve had it for about a week. Here’s what I’m thinking so far…
While the rest of the world thinks that any news on the Apple Watch is passing, passé… I beg to differ. I received my Apple Watch on 2015-05-19. I waited a few days until I was able to have a personal setup session with Apple at the Apple Store Main Place in Naperville, IL, before I started wearing the device full time.
The thought for me, was multi-purposed –
- I wanted the full court press from Apple for myself
- I wanted my wife to have a pampered experience
- The Apple Watch is new and like the iPhone of 2007, a bit unknown
- The Apple Watch is a complex device, requiring knowledge of and familiarity with
a. its own UI
b. Apple Pay,
c. Notification Center, and
d. the iPhone and Apple Watch App Stores
I consider myself to be somewhat of an expert when it comes to smartwatches and other wearables. After the Pebble Steel, the Microsoft Band, and the Fitbit Surge, I’d better be. I’ve got the Apple Watch as well as the Olio Model One and the Pebble Time to consider as well before my wearables roundup is completed.
