Apple Watch - Day 6
OK – enough is enough. What did the Apple Watch actually do for me?
Gave me instant notifications when I got an email. I don’t actually want this.
Messages – yes that is great – I knew straight away when I got a message. But replying from the watch was pretty much a waste of time.
Navigation using the Maps App was of no use to me.
Other than that?
- I am not interested in how many steps I have taken.
- I am not interested in how many minutes exercise I have achieved when I have not done any anyway.
- I do not want to be told to stand up.
- I do not want to be told when to breathe.
- All those notifications I found irritating.
- The music function was of no use to me.
- I want to know the time and the date. That is what I need from a watch.
- What is the point of a bedside clock with a blank screen?
I do not need an Apple Watch. If I don’t need it I don’t want it. So I have sent it back.
Sorry Apple - lovely gadget – but I really had no need for it. I just didn't get it.
This is not an anti Apple thing – far from it. I have an iPhone 7 Plus which I use all the time and is fantastic. I have an iPad Pro which has revolutionised the way I work. It has made my photography business pretty much a mobile entity I can take with me anywhere.
But the Apple Watch? Sorry but I don’t get it at all.
And as for the price? £300 is a lot of money for something that did very little for me.
Thankfully the returns process was nice and straightforward.
I am looking forward to spending my £300 on something else.
