Especially when you buy a new “something”. When you had an old “something” but you sold it on eBay.
And that “something” is an Apple Watch.
I really have no excuse– except that this is the newer model that’s waterproof to 50m and has better GPS.
And I like the band.
I blame Kyle as he keeps taking me into Apple stores during errands and the watches are just there– you know? Beconing. All shiny and techy.
So this time I succumbed.
I think my issue last time was that I had great expectations for how the watch would integrate into my life and maybe replace my phone and do all sorts of cool stuff that I hadn’t dreamed of yet. And it just… didn’t.
It was kind of clunky and the interface was a tad clumsy and it just didn’t do anything very cool.
So I grew disappointed and I got rid of it.
This time I look at the watch as a time piece/fitness tracker. That can also check texts, emails, and answer a phone call.
Oh- and sort of browse through Jack’d profiles– if one was into that sort of thing.
This is also the Nike version with running app integration which I hope to use as I’ve started running a bit. I’m also hoping it works as a good carrot for my overall fitness goals.
We’ll see. Time will tell.
