What I Want In An Apple Watch 3.0

Okay, so it’s been no mystery that the Apple Watch 2.0 has been kind of a bust. All of us with Apple Watch 1.0s were looking forward to a big upgrade or some major difference and what we got was “waterproofing” and GPS built-in. Not such a huge win if the watch was already on […]

Goodbye Apple Watch (Hello, Apple Watch 2.0, Maybe)

It’s official. I have given my Apple Watch to my 13 yo daughter. She’ll get more pleasure out of it than me. And the overnight charging aspect doesn’t bother her at all.

Reconsidering the Purpose of my Apple Watch

So I’ve been a bit disillusioned of my 38mm Apple Watch lately.

Apple Watch as Fitness Tracker: How Does It Stack Up?

A fitness tracker of some sort has been part of my watch-wear for several years now. I lost my first Fitbit in an airport security check, but I loved my Nike Fuelband. There *is* motivation in knowing that your steps were being counted. I didn’t really use the “social” aspects, but I did like the […]

Watch Watch We Love Our Apple Watch

I have not come close to putting my Apple Watch through its paces. I’ve got a long review of the fitness and activity apps, but it’s a few more days coming. There are a few things I’d really like to share, however, that might fill in some gaps about what you’ve heard. Battery Life It’s […]
