My review of the Apple Watch - Day 6

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.
