Everyone is wondering if the Apple Watch is worth buying.
There are way enough reviews about it to help you make a decision.
I bought the Apple Watch because I wanted to experience wearables.
This post is a documentation of my experience with it as I integrate it into my daily habits.
If you do have an Apple Watch, please feel free to comment and add your thoughts at the bottom.
|What I like||What I don’t like||
What I don’t know yet
|Like all Apple products it is beautiful and delightful to (use) wear.I ordered it on Apr 18th and was expecting delivery in June. What a great surprise when it got delivered in April 24th||It doesn’t have a browser.
So when I receive a notification, there is noting more that I can do on the watch. I have to take out my phone or computer to follow-up.That is the fundamental question about connected watches: Do they bring enough value to fit in the current usage of connected devices?
|There are not a lot of apps available yet|
|Fitness tracking is great, motivating interactive, accurate + I can keep my Apple in the shower. That is a plus!||Siri and I are having a lot of arguments. I hate repeating myself…. And she is not very tolerant with mixed accents …||I want Google apps: search, maps, translate… when they will be available, it will bring this tool to a whole new level|
|The battery life. A lot reviews marked this down. I was actually worried that pairing the watch with my iPhone via Bluetooth would drain my iPhone battery. So far, I have been out for a full day using both and the batteries have lasted the whole day on both.||Notifications are always on: Is there a way to automatically turn off notification when the work out app is running? For instance, I don’t want to see my emails pop up when I am in the middle of a spin class checking my heart rate.||The voice control is a great feature (to send messages, search… ) but it feels awkward to use in public places. Not a lot of people have adopted it yet.|
|The notifications at your finger tips without having to take out your phone (email, txt, tweets…) give you the feeling that you are not missing a bit of the information that comes your way.||I am yet to use Apple pay, Delta check in, SPG keyless room|
|The Haptic (vibration) system is definitely not as intrusive as receiving notification on a phone. I can see how this type of communication will become a game changer in the future. Apple is leading the way there||I have only made one phone call so far and holding my wrist near my face to talk was far less comfortable that using headphones with an iPhone with . Not sure if I can talk into the watch with my hand hanging down and also the volume of the watch is not strong enough to hear.||How do I make the best use the camera command? Is this suppose to replace the selfie stick??|
