“I’m writing this to you with my Apple Watch back on my wrist after one long week without it,” William Gallagher writes for MacNN. “Don’t ever make me do that again.”
“I’ve learnt some things along the way, there have been surprises, and there have been lessons — but I’d have given all that up just to put the thing on and get back to work,” Gallagher writes. “That’s what it felt like: it was wrong losing it, I wasn’t working normally without it. All that from a device I’ve only had since May.”
“If there is a benefit to having gone without the Watch for a week — no, scratch that, there is no benefit. Zero. It was all bad. Nothing good,” Gallagher writes. “Except that I do get it now: I get that the thing about the Watch is how well and completely it fits into your life, and leaves an impression. It’s not one particular app or one particular feature, it is the Watch complete.”

MacDailyNews Take: Apple Watch owners understand. Hopefully, this article helps those without an Apple Watch to begin to understand, too.
It’s like trying to explain “Why Mac” to a Windows PC sufferer. You really have to use one in order to understand. There are just too many details, too many nuances; a list of benefits simply doesn’t do it justice. With Apple Watch, as with the Mac, it’s the whole experience. It’s indescribable, yet indescribably better.
We’ve now worn Apple Watches every day for 2 months and 21 days.
We will never go back to the primitive days of not wearing an Apple Watch.
It’s amusing to watch those without Apple Watches wasting time obsessing over their phones all day – especially knowing that one day, sooner or later, they’ll also be wearing Apple Watches and then they’ll finally get it, too.
You can have our Apple Watches when you pry them off our cold, dead wrists. – MacDailyNews, June 3, 2015
