“Whenever a stranger notices that I’m wearing an Apple Watch, the 1st thing they usually ask is ‘do you like it?’ I always find this question to be a bit awkward because I guess if there was something as personal as a watch or other wearable item that I didn’t like, I probably wouldn’t be wearing it,” Terry White blogs. “It’s like saying, hey those shoes you’re wearing, do you like them? However, I get it. It’s a hot new tech gadget with a lot of hype that they’ve heard something about or perhaps are interested in possibly getting one and it’s probably the first question that comes to mind. To answer the question for the record, YES, I love it!”
“I no longer display the battery status on my watch because since day one battery has NEVER been a problem for me. Not one time in 45 days have I run out of juice,” White writes. “I think the lowest the battery has been when I put it on the charger at night was 30% left. It actually averages between 40%-60% left each day.”
“The Apple Watch is far from perfect, but for what it is right now as a 1.0 product it’s GREAT. It does the things that I bought it for and if I had it to do all over again I’d buy it again,” White writes. “For every day use it has been a natural fit into my lifestyle and for travel it’s been great to have the things I want to know about the most at a glance.”
