“Every once in a while, there comes a bit of tech that lets you do what you’re already doing, but in simpler and more effective ways,” Michael deAgonia writes for Computerworld. “After using the Apple Watch for a month, I’ve decided that the watch is that kind of product. If you’re already in the Apple ecosystem, chances are that you’ll want one.”

“I consider the Watch a breakthrough product — but that doesn’t mean it’s for everyone,” deAgonia writes. “It’s a relatively expensive accessory for the iPhone rather than a necessity, and as a fitness tracker, there are alternatives that are much cheaper yet do the same things — some even offer features the Watch doesn’t include, like live UV sensor and proper water-proofing.”

MacDailyNews Take: Beyond water, food and shelter, absolutely nothing is “for everyone.”

“Overall, the Watch is well-designed, well-executed, fits perfectly into the Apple digital lifestyle, and offers access to an entire ecosystem of apps, hardware accessories, and media that Apple has spent over a decade building up,” deAgonia writes. “Over all, after a month of use, I’m very positive on the Apple Watch, but the folks at Apple have a much larger audience to convince. Time will tell if the combination of functions and fashion will be enough to lure even more users than the rush of early adopters.”

MacDailyNews Take: After six and a half weeks with Apple Watch on our wrists every waking hour, we’ll never give it up. It saves us far too much time!

The top issues are, in no particular order: Third-party apps are sometimes slow (but, that’s about to change with Apple soon to allow native third-party apps), the display is difficult to see in direct sunlight, the Watch should recognize repetitive motions (sit-ups, for example) and not turn the display on and off with each rep, email should have a reply option, and (a very minor quibble) the app icons should display the app name when dragged while the apps are in “jiggle” mode for rearrangement (icons alone sometimes get confusing as to what’s what). Other than that, we have no issues of which to speak.
