Dear Apple Watch,
Why do I want you so bad?
Because you’re a shiny new v1 Apple gadget. And I’m an early adopter.
And normally, that would be the end of it.
But something’s gnawing at me this time.
You’re going to replace my beautiful, small, gold watch. Something I’ve worn for many, many years. It only does one thing but it does it well. And it does it without me having to lift my arm into viewing position.
It’s also gold. And small. And round faced. It’s a reflection of my fashion sense.
You are space gray with a black band. And at least four times bigger. And squarish.
Can I grow to love you? Or will you become too disruptive?
What I want to use you for
To tell the time. I know that’s stating the obvious. But I had to say it because I know lots of people don’t wear a watch and use their phone to check the time. I’m not one of those people. I need to be able to tell time on my wrist. I read in one review that the Apple Watch may be a little laggy in displaying the time. If that’s the case, I may have a problem.
To pay for stuff. I already love using Apple Pay at Whole Foods with my iPhone. It’ll be even more convenient with the watch! This CNet review even mentions paying with QR codes. That would be cool, too.
To track my continuous heart rate. Because my heart rate will give me a more accurate picture of how many calories I burn in a day. The more calories I burn, the more I can eat. And I always want to eat more if I have the budget to do so.
I know you have a bunch of other features. But I’m not sure I need a watch to do all those things. I guess I have a learning curve ahead of me and time will tell. (Punny.)
Will your benefits outweigh your shortcomings?
We’ll see soon.
Hope you’re cool.
With love and anticipation,
