“I finally bought the Apple Watch after saying I wouldn’t,” Michael Hyatt blogs. “I looked at it twice in the Apple Store. I even tried it on. I just couldn’t find a compelling reason to buy one.”
“But this past week, my watch stopped. I was overdue for a new one. So, once again, I decided to check out the Apple Watch. I probably would have walked out of the store again without the watch, except I bumped into my friend, Fred, who works at Apple,” Hyatt writes. “Noticing he was wearing one, I asked, ‘What do you think of the watch?’ Without hesitation, he replied. ‘It’s awesome. I didn’t get it until I tried it. Now I’m not sure how I got along without it.'”
“So, I thought, What the heck. I can always return it if I don’t like it,” Hyatt writes. “And the verdict? I won’t be taking it back. So far, I love it.”
Here are my five biggest reasons:
1. It’s a beautifully crafted gadget.
2. It’s less intrusive than the iPhone.
3. It’s made me more conscious of my activity level.
4. It keeps me focused on what matters most.
5. It’s just plain fun to use.
Each of the five points above explained in the full article here.
MacDailyNews Take: As we’ve said many times before: If you don’t have an Apple Watch, you’re missing out.
Apple Watch saves time. And, we don’t mean that in a small way, we mean that in a big way. 😉 (Thanks, Steve.)
Small bits of time saved throughout each day equal big time savings each day. Time is our most precious commodity.
Lost time is never found again. — Benjamin Franklin
That’s why we wear Apple Watches, they give us the gift of time.
Back at the end of April, with just a week of having Apple Watches strapped to our wrists, we wrote:
Already, we feel naked without our Apple Watches on our wrists. Already we notice people staring at their iPhones (real and pretend) everywhere and understand that Apple is going to change the world again. It’s like driving a car while everyone else is being pulled in buggies by horses. We hardly look at our iPhones compared to our pre-Apple Watch days, plus we’re saving so much time!
Two months ago, on the occasion of our fourth week with Apple Watch we wrote:
Our iPhone usage is way, way down and, consequently, our iPhone battery life is way, way up (from about 40% left at the end of a typical day to over 65%). We put our Apple Watches to bed every night with about 30-35% battery remaining.
