The 2:26 Apple Watch review (with video)

Bani McSpedden is one of two Australian journalists to have experienced the Apple Watch.

For the past week, he’s been wearing it, using it, and putting it through its paces.

The Apple Watch defines a new generation of wrist wear.

Now, enthusiasts of traditional timepieces shouldn’t feel threatened, but they may soon find themselves thankful for having two wrists. — Bani McSpedden

    1. Yes, and the media have also said that they do now know why Digital Crown is necessary, though I would argue you have to be dumb to not understand that having a control that lets you operate device but still let you see its small display is one of the most obvious things ever.

      And there are others who like Patel from Verge who lump together Watch core operations with occasional pre-release issues with use of third party applications and make conclusion that the Watch is slow — which is ridiculous, since in its built-in functions is not slow at all.

      This is especially stupid since unlike iPhone, Watch’s pattern use is by far core functionality, not browsing Instagram on it and many other things.

      Finally, many totally miss the point that Watch allows you save time by not pulling your phone unnecessary, or greatly help when your hands are not free. Even though Watch requires both hands to operate it, you can still hold things in like “1.5 hands”, and still do it.

  1. For $349 for starters you’d think apple could handle making it water “proof”. Your cheapest watches are proof. Come on get real. Maybe there saving that for the next version. Think the call it apple watch s. Lol
