Model of your Watch
What really amazes me about all the different models you can pick when you're looking for an Apple watch is how the same device can go from being an awesome sports watch to being a very elegant smart device. If you're thinking about going the elegant "classy" route I would look no further than the Brown modern buckle. With that you're going to fit into any situation. It is a remnant from a time past given a modern touch. It wouldn't look out of place in the 19th century but still looks relevant today. Here is my review of the Apple watch in this instance with a brown modern buckle.
Sports watches are great. They help you track your progress in sports. But there are situations where, even if style has been considered with the sports band, you're looking for something different. In the corporate meeting rooms around the world you're looking for something a bit more distinguished. Something that tells people you're one to watch. Not because you run fast, but because you know what you're doing. For me the choice would have to be something that has a bit more class than a sports band. For me the brown modern buckle would be just the ticket. It would show the world I know what I'm doing.
The key to success these days are to stay focused an organized in a world gone mad. The information overload we're subjected to on a daily basis is simply quite staggering. Not a day passes when we're not subjected to input from hundreds, if not thousands of sources, it is important that you are able to cut through the crap to stay afloat. When you're sat at your computer or holding your smart phone in your hands it is easy to get sidetracked into matters that really does not deserve your attention. The staggering levels of information these devices send your way means you have a hard time focusing on the things that are truly important.
I for one worried how useful the small screen on the Apple watch would be, but it turns out it is brilliant at cutting through the spam and getting me to the matters I really should be spending my time focusing on. That is a whole new level of focus I haven't seen with a smart device so far. The small screen is, in my opinion, the biggest advantage of the Apple Watch.
With a modern brown buckle, I'm able to mix cutting-edge technology with sheer class. I walk into any meeting room with all the information i need an d the world at my fingertips. Should I need some urgent piece of information, I can now get it without having to distract myself from the core matter at hand? The meeting I'm a part of. This is powerful and something I believe any career-minded individual needs.
I didn't know that I'd never need to wear a watch again in my life. Now I can't imagine not wearing one. As long as it's an Apple Watch.
What's the hottest thing since sliced bread? Smart watches. After more than a decade of freedom for our wrists, they are once again to be burdened, or if you will, enriched by carrying a device that can tell the time. However, smart watches, of which it's hard to deny the Apple Watch is one of the very best, can do so much more than merely help you tell the time. In the case of the Apple Watch, it brings the power of the iPhone to your wrists. Not quite your fingertips, but about as close as it can possibly get. It is a device that can do almost anything you can do with an iPhone. The main difference is it is much smaller and far easier to carry around and get to. No more messing around in your pocket whenever you hear or feel a message. Now you can simply take a quick look at your watch to see if it is something you actually need to spend time looking at.
However, that's not all there is to it. This particular sample of the watch comes with a very comfortable sports band that makes it extremely well suited as a fitness tracker. You already know of all the fitness tracking apps available for your iPhone. You probably even have one of those things that let you run around with your iPhone on your arm. It makes you look really classy right? Well, the Apple watch can use those very same apps, and will actually be comfortable and stylish to wear when you run around.
The addition of a heart-rate monitor makes the Apple Watch an even better fitness tracking tool than your iPhone ever had a chance of being. Now, you can track everything related to your fitness. And you can see just how many calories you burn at any given time while you're working out. That is something you couldn't imagine doing in a way that was really that smart with you iPhone.
In short, the Apple Watch with a sports rubber band does double duty and serves as a great fitness tracker like no smart phone can ever do. However, that is not all it does. It allows you to play games, stay connected, and stay social.
I'm one of those who don't always see what's so great about new devices. I'm slightly conservative when it comes to things like that. I mean, obviously it's pretty neat, but do I really need it? I was very skeptical when the iPad was launched. I mean it wasn't quite a phone, and it wasn't quite a computer so how useful could it be? Suffice to say I was proven wrong.
With the Appe Watch, we have a device that already has a proven and useful purpose in telling the time. Now, my time piece comes with a lot of extra cool features that allow me to organize my life and keep my fitness goals. The fact that it looks great is just an added bonus.
According to some statistics more than 40% of those looking to buy a wearable device wants one that can be worn on their wrists. Why is that? I think we're talking about ease of access here. I can tell you what I've been looking for in my wearable device. That's something that was first of all easily accessible. The phone is obviously not that hard to get to, but it is often tucked away in my pocket and that makes it a slight pain to get out. I also needed a device I could use to constantly stay up to date with important stats I use in my daily life. We're talking activity stats, messages and so on. Something that I could just raise my hand up to my face and take a look at. The Apple watch has enabled me to do just that. Now, there are other wearable devices on the market, but I don't see any other type of device with similar usability. At least not for me. Let me explain.
What is a wearable device? A phone could probably be considered a wearable device, but could a tablet? I don't think so. Now, let's say, for arguments sake, that a phone isn't actually a wearable device. What is then? The Google Glasses spring to mind. And it makes you wonder why they haven't become more widespread, why they didn't really (yet, anyway) catch on. I think it's because they take up too much of your attention. I mean you're literally always connected. Where that might usually be considered a good thing, I would personally, worry that I would become too distracted from things I really need to pay attention to. Like, you know, traffic.
What other wearable device could there be? I wouldn't be surprised if more was done with headphones in the future, but then again, that means you're always connected. And it would be hard to give you any visual feedback (unless they somehow manage to add 3D projectors to them, which would be cool, but probably even more distracting than the glasses).
That, for me anyway, leaves the wrist as the main area where you would consider wearing a device for optimal usability and connectivity without it becoming too much of a distraction. Having decided on a wrist based wearable device I had to pick which one. For many of the things I needed it to do a fitness tracker would actually have been sufficient, but then there were other things, like checking email and so on, that I also needed it to do. That meant I was in the market for a smart watch.
There are several smart watch vendors on the market. Why go for an Apple Watch. You know it's going to be expensive right?
You're right, but there is one thing I know for sure about Apple. Their products work and they are easy to use. The Apple Watch 38mm Stainless Steel Case Milanese Loop even ensures I get to wear a smart watch in style! I recommend you take a good look at it.
The Apple Watch is the latest product from Apple. You know that company with an apple that someone seems to have taken a bite off. Now, you can take another bite of the apple. The forbidden fruit that gives you knowledge. With the Apple Watch everything you know will be closer than it ever was before. You will find it easier to stay connected. And in the spirit of the Apple, it will play to your desires. You get to wear a device that is stylish, state-of the art and innovative while still maintaining the classic look you'd expect from a watch.
Innovation has always been at the fore of what Apple does. They may not be the inventors of all the types of devices they're putting on the market, but they're certainly among the first to make the devices useful. The Watch is a little bit different. However, in this case it's a device we've been using for many years that had simply proven redundant. I mean, most of us can't remember the last time we wore a watch on our wrists. The reason was pretty simple. The watch had one primary reason to be there, simply to allow us to tell the time. For a long time the device most of us have been using for that has been the smart phone. A device that has been our connection to the rest of the world. Now the classic watch is back with a vengeance.
The classic look of many watches is of course the simple leather buckle. I have to ask, why mess with something that works and looks great? With this 38mm Apple Watch with a classic leather buckle it seems the guys at Apple have been asking the same question. The Apple Watch come in two sizes, 38mm and 42mm, traditionally women's watches are a bit smaller than mens watches and with the stylish leather band with a simple buckle, you have a watch that would look great on a womans wrist. Whether she's a business woman or working in fashion, or any other field for that matter, she can now stay connected all the time.
These days connectivity is just so important. Our jobs require us to be able to respond to urgent messages at a moments notice. If you don't respond the order may go to your competitor and you'll lose a lot of money. Your social lives are similarly increasingly dependent on connectivity. That usually means you see people constantly looking at the screen of their smart phone. First because they respond to an urgent message and then because they got sidetracked. The new state of the art technology will make sure you only respond to urgent notifications leaving more time for the real world.
The Apple Watch is definitely State of the art. You get technology that is far more advanced than the tech that used to guide rockets into space. It may not be rocket science, but it will definitely help you climb both social and corporate ladders. I highly recommend this 38mm Apple Watch, and why not go with a classic leather band with a buckle.
Do you miss the old days when showing off a watch also constituted showing off some high tech piece of equipment. I'm not going to lie to you, with a traditional watch those days are long gone. However, if you've looked at some of the smart watches available on the market you've probably been a bit disappointed by their lack of style. I mean, it used to be the watch you wore told you something about who you were. With the Apple Wathc those days are back. In fact, you can choose the type of Apple Watch you get by who you are, or who you want to be. If you're a sporty person or want to be go for a sport watch. If you want something that is more fitting for the corporate world go for something like the link bracelet watch. That works in any social situation.
It has all the functionality your iPhone has. Ok, it's not really good for talking on the phone yet, but one would expect that to happen some time in the near future. Everything else it is really, really good at. You live for your job and you need to stay connected to do that well. If you miss an important message it could mean missing an important order for your company, which could lead to losing money, and not getting that promotion you're looking for.
Now, I'm not going to make some silly claim like saying the Apple Watch is going to get you promoted, but it does help you stay connected and stay on top of things. After all that is something you really need to be able to do. However, you can do all of that with your iPhone, so why not keep doing that? That is a really good and really fair question. the answer is that it's really not convenient. For every iteration phones seem to grow bigger. It's getting difficult to tell the difference between the top phones and the smaller tablets. That's because we're expecting the one device to do a lot of different things, many of those things require quite a bit of screen space.
It's not really good for saving time, however. I mean, once you pick off the phone you're bound to get caught up in a bunch of other matters. That is a real time killer. You need to cut through the weed and just handle the important matters at hand. And you want to be able to do that with a certain level of style.
I'm betting that's why you're looking at the Apple Watch. You've probably been a bit disappointed by the look of some of the other smart watches on the market. That's why you're now looking at the safe bet. Apple are know all over their world for being on top of design. They are the top choice for anyone in the marketing world because they know how to make things look great and work even better. I personally recommend you get an Apple Watch today.
How would you like a watch? Not so much? Ok. How would you love a device you could wear on your wrist that could track your fitness progress, help you stay organized, reply to urgent mail, stay in touch on social media, and be your very own game and entertainment center? A bit better? Too good to be true?
Well, just as we thought watches were a thing of the past smart watches enters the market. The road is paved, once again one might say, by Apple with their aptly named Apple Watch. It integrates all the functionality and style you've come to expect from an Aplle device with the usability and accessibility of a good old watch.
The big problem with smart phones, including the iPhone, is that they're clunky. Even though the manufacturers do their best to make them as handy as possible they are still growing bigger and bigger. The reason is all the things we want them to do. These days you could probably do a major portion of your work from your phone. It probably wouldn't be practical, but I wouldn't bet against it being possible.
Those requirements makes them less handy. For years they have been our main way of telling what time it is and keep updated on other daily matters. However, reaching for your phone is more and more likely to cost you a lot of time. Not only because you actually have to fetch it from your pocket, but even more so because when you do you're more than likely to be sidetracked into other matters. Some of them are things you actually do need to do, but most of them are probably things that you shouldn't prioritize. The Apple Watch is a great way to handle that. It is the perfect device for staying organized and handling urgent, but only urgent, matters. Everything else is easily shoved to the side...literally.
The great thing about the Apple Watch is that you can pick the type of watch you want depending on what you're using it for. The actual hardware does the same, but being able to select a Watch designed specifically for fitness and sports can be a big deal. It takes care of one other thing more and more people are investing in. Fitness trackers. If you haven't invested in one chances are you're running around with your iPhone strapped to your shoulder. that's in no way particularly efficient.
That's why fitness trackers are so popular. They are excellent at what they do, but they are also one more device that really only do one thing. The Apple Watch can easily work as a fitness tracker as well as a smart device that can do most of what your phone can do.
If you like your smart devices to actually be smart and multi-functional it's very difficult to look past the Apple Watch. If you're in the market for a fitness tracker anyway, why not look for a device that can serve more purposes than that one. That's what I did and I haven't looked back.
A lot of the times products from Apple seem like they come out of a Sci-Fi movie. That is, if you ask your grandparents they might think it's something from Star Trek or something like that. That should obviously be taken as a compliment. Cell phones and smart phones were the first handheld devices that gave you that futuristic feel. Obviously, these days it seems weird to think of a world without them. Having grown up in the 80s and 90s most of my youth we didn't have mobile phones, but even now I find it hard to imagine a world without them. Countless are the times I call home from the grocery store to make sure I don't forget something. Obviously there are apps that could help ensure that, but I still call home.
It sometimes makes you wonder what the next step is going to be. The Apple watch is a pretty good example of what it could be. Now you have all the computing power of your iPhone right there on your wrist. Remember, that's a level of power that was unavailable to most PCs at the turn of the millennium, and even later on. That's how powerful mobile devices have become. What makes the Apple watches really stand out is how it once again shrinks the size of the device you need to an unbelievable level. I mean, 42mm! There was a time when a computer with a mere fraction of the power of the Apple watch would take up an entire room, and a big room at that.
You'd worry, however, that something as small as that wouldn't really be easy to operate. Now, if you're planning on writing a novel on your device the Apple Watch is not the best choice, for obvious reasons. Then again neither is and iPhone or an iPad. Given its size, however, it is obvious a lot of thought has been put into how you're supposed to use it. How you're going to get the most out of it. For me, the first thing that's become clear is just how easy it is to check your messages on the Apple Watch. That could mean spending more time looking through spam, but actually I've fond it's making it far easier to disregard unimportant messages and take care of the urgent ones. It's even pretty good for leaving quick replies. However, if I need to type up a longer reply this is not the device I'd use. Actually, for that I still prefer the PC, or at least a tablet with a keyboard.
The Apple Watch 42mm 316L with Space Black Stainless Steel is a wonderful "Sci-fi" item, but it is actually very useful in the real world. You need to put some thought into what you need to use your device for before you make a purchase. The Apple Watch is not good for anything that requires you to type a lot, but if you need to stay organized and connected and just leave quick replies it is absolutely perfect.
Sometimes you just want to go for the classics. With a classic buckle, you know what you're getting. It looks great without being over the top. The big advantage of the Apple Watch is that you get to choose exactly what style you want from the off. With the classic buckle, you're getting a bit of old-fashioned with something that is state of the art. While many wouldn't think, watches would come back anytime soon, Apple has once again turned the table on consumers. You thought you'd never seen a watch again, but now it is something that doesn't just allow you to tell the time it is also the best way to stay connected while you're mobile. You don't have to constantly look through your pockets for your phone just to tell the time or to see if you have any important messages.
With the classic buckle apple watch you're staying as close to the original watch as you can while still wearing a state of the art smart device. There are other smart device brands on the market with their own smart watches, but you'll find that Apple once again takes the market by its horns and delivers something you just can't look past. If you're not into Aplle products, you may be getting tired of hearing all the hype constantly surrounding the company, but you will also have to admit it's founded in a level of innovation few other vendors can match.
My personal experience with the Apple Watch is the following. I didn't think I needed yet another smart device, but a friend of mine who simply loves Apple products showed me his brand-new watch. I had to admit it looked pretty cool. And after a while of messing around with his, I caved and ordered my own. I was impressed with the many different looks you could get from one simple device. Being a sucker for the classics I went with the classic buckle, but I could have gone with a number of different styles as well. Apple is not all about style, but they do have it in spades.
Now, the look of the product is one thing, but at the end of the day the most important thing is how it performs. I was personally, a bit worried about such a small screen. I don't exactly have tiny fingers, and I worried a lot about how I was going to actually use it. Apple kept the old-school crown of the watch, which you may be wondering about, because usually it's used for setting the time. Apple, however, decided it could be used for so much more. It is now an important part of how you manipulate the screen of the watch. Some of the things you're used to doing on your iPhone with your fingers that would seem difficult to do on such a small screen can now be done using the crown.
Do you know what the problem with a smart phone or a tablet is? They are pretty damn clunky. That means when you carry them around you feel like you're carrying quite a load and that's mainly because you are. The added disadvantage is that if you start checking your device you're going to fall into a trap, a trap you might not escape for a very long time.
Did you know there is something called a "Facebook minute?"
A "Facebook minute" is when you tell someone you're going to be there in a minute you just have to check Facebook. 15 minutes later you realize it took more than a minute, hence a Facebook minute. That is what usually happens when you grab your phone. You end up checking a whole host of other things. And that costs you a lot of time.
Now, with a smart watch you can get that done fairly easily. You can see whenever there is a message for you and quickly dismiss it or decide it needs further attention. Because the watch is right there on your wrist it's not going to feel like such a hassle checking it out. I know some people will claim it will do the opposite. Their argument is that since you're more easily connected you're going to look at it all the time. At first that's probably true, but then who doesn't spend a lot of time on a device when they've just acquired it?
I definitely know I do.
The thing is, since I don't have to get the phone out of my pocket to check messages I can get it done a lot faster. I also don't have to check all other notifications that are of questionable importance as I would do on my phone because I know when it's back in the pocket I would have to fetch it again. That's where the smart watch really makes a difference for me personally.
So what does it do? Obviously it helps you keep track of time, but that's not all it does. The display can be customized to suit your style and needs and you can get all the information you need on one tiny screen. My worry with the screen was that it would be to small to be of any use in terms of responding to events. So far that hasn't been a huge issue. However, I'm pretty certain we will see developments in regards to how the screen looks in future iterations.
And that is potentially the major drawback of the Apple Watch. It is the first version of the device which means there are undoubtedly a lot of experiences to be had. Things you and Apple will realize just doesn't work on a wrist device. That's what first versions do. They help figure out what works and what doesn't. However, this isn't the first device Apple has concocted and they do have a lot of experience so I wouldn't worry too much about that.
Modern technology makes it increasingly easy for us to stay connected to the rest of the world (or at least the online world). First there was the cellphone, then tablets and now smart watches. Leading the charge is once again Apple with the Apple Watch. It is a product that combines functionality and style in one very good looking, albeit expensive, package. There was a tie when owning an Apple product signaled style and innovation. That's actually still very much the case. Although their competitors are closing in and in some cases enjoying better market shares you can't deny Apple's ability to take technology to the next level. Their're not always the one inventing the technology, but even when they don't, they are often the first to come up with a really good way to use it. Tablet PC's had actually been around for years before the iPad. They'd just never really made a dent in the market because they were deemed impractical.
The Apple Watch is innovative, not because it is a watch, but because it is one of the first really, really good devices you can wear on your wrist. Not even the guys at Apple would claim to have invented the watch. The watch is a curious device seeing as it is something that's been around for centuries only to disappear and now make a return to the market. It makes you wonder what the traditional Watch manufacturers such as Seiko and Rolex will do to get back in the game, but that's another story not for this review.
Yes, this is a review of the Apple Watch 42mm Silver Aluminum Case with White Sport Band.
What's it good for?
What it is really good for is helping you achieve your training goals. With a sport band you get a version of the Apple watch that is perfect when you're working out or otherwise tracking your activity. However, just because it's a sport band it doesn't mean it has to look like shit, and it doesn't the Apple Watch 42mm Silver Aluminum Case with White Sport Band is a pretty good looking piece of tech. It is something you could wear on any occasion and not feel ashamed. With it on your wrist you have total connectivity to the online world at your wrist. You can check and respond to messages and emails with a few taps of your fingers.
In other words, you can do pretty much the same things you can do with your phone, just without using the phone.
What's less good?
To be brutally honest, the price. You're going to have to fork out at least $400+ to get your Apple Watch, and depending on how you accessorize it you can expect much more than that.
Fortunately, the Apple Watch 42mm Silver Aluminum Case with White Sport Band package is one of the less expensive on the market. That is why, if you want the benefits of the latest tech innovations at your disposal at a somewhat reasonable price, that is the package I would recommend.
Since wearable devices, especially smart watches, are all the rave right now a lot of analytical companies are trying to figure out what direction all of this is going to go. In one such study it was said that more than half of all US customers want their wearable devices to look more like jewelry, 53% to be exact. With this white link bracelet Apple Watch made of a stainless steel casing that is definitely what you're going to see. It is a watch that wouldn't be out of place in more formal conditions and definitely one that a lot of people wouldn't mind wearing. There are a lot of sports casings on the market, but if you want to seperate yourself from the crowd there are certainly ways to do that. The downside is that it's pricey, but if you're shopping for something that is not only practical, but stylish as well you're not going to go wrong with the Apple Watch 42mm Stainless Steel Case White Link Bracelet.
You'd think that a metallic link bracelet might hinder some of the more "activity related" functions of the Apple Watch, but with a Digital Crown heart rate sensor and accelerometer and a gyroscope that is far from the case. In fact, even though this is a classier variant of the usual casings on the market you don't lose any functionality at all. It is a casing that gives you style and function like no other.
That's not to say it doesn't have any drawbacks. The main one being that it is pricey.
I won't sugar coat it. If you want to look stunning you're going to have to fork over the cash. However, if you're already investing upwards of $500 in a smart watch you're probably willing to pay a bit extra to be able to show it off in style.
Here's what you'll experience with the Apple Watch 42mm Stainless Steel Case White Link Bracelet. You'll experience all the functionality of the Apple Watch. That means you get a tool that can help you keep track of your time, your messages, your activity and it can help you stay connected. It is not just another time-stealing gadget. Wearing it on your arm means that it is always readily available to you and that actually helps cut down on time wasting activities.
Also, it's important to remember that when you're buying an Apple product you're not just buying a piece of technology. You're sending a statement to your surroundings. Apple is still one of the cool brands that people want to associate with. You'll find plenty of people who will say they don't like Apple products, but for a lot of them it just means they can't afford it and they're jealous.
I highly recommend the Apple Watch. By picking an Apple product your're getting the best modern technology can produce. I would never want anything less. For the world of me I can't see why you would.
You don't much in terms of hi-tech than picking an Apple product. For decades they've been innovating the way we use technology. Everything from the personal computer to the phone. They were not the first, by any means, to enter the phone market, but they do have a lot of responsibly for changing it completely around. There is nothing that is like it was before the iPhone. Now, would you bet against them to turn something as old-fashioned as a watch into their latest innovation? No. Neither would I. In recent years the market for fitness trackers has exploded. We've been using our phones to sort of try to track our fitness progress. It has kind of worked, but it has never been anywhere close to being the optimal solution. So, enter the fitness tracker. Trackers like fitbit are revolutionizing the way we look at fitness data. Now, Apple being who they are couldn't just let that market go unexplored. That is one of the reasons they've come up with the Apple Watch. It has all the connectivity as your iPhone, it is just a lot more mobile.
With a white sport buckle the Apple Watch looks every bit as awesome as any fitness tracker you can think of. It is great to wear while you're running and exercising. In contrast to the fitness tracker, however, it has a lot more functionality.
With the Apple watch you get pretty much all the functionality you get with your iPhone or iPad. It has access to the same world of apps, which means it will be useful in just as many ways as your other Apple devices. There will probably be a need for some Apple Watch specific development as I can't see all iPhone apps being useful on a small screen, but I'm pretty sure this is a challenge app developers will relish. There are one group of apps you can start using right away that is literally perfect for the Apple watch.
You can expect all the fitness tracker apps to be ready to rumble on your Apple watch. I would expect the people behind the software to be ready for the challenge of the smaller interface. I mean, this is the prime tool for their apps. It is a fitness tracker and an app device in one sweet solution right at the users fingertips. If they're not ready for that they really need to find another line of business. That's all I can say about that.
An Apple trademark is off course their unique design. They are at the top of the list for products graphic designers and other design people like to use. Why? because they are successfully mixing usability with sleek simplistic design. They really just look awesome. Even though, with the sports band, you might expect this version of the Apple watch to be mainly suited for situations where you're exercising you have absolutely no reason to worry that you won't be able to wear it in other situations as well. It just looks awesome.
Back in the day (I love using that phrase, makes me seem either classy or distinguished, or like an old fart) you basically had two choice. You could go with a link bracelet watch or a leather loop watch. That's not to day there were no other choices, but those were the main ones. Then came the glorious decade+ (the past 10+ years) where our wrists were truly free. No longer bound by the restraints of a wristwatch. Now, you'd think this glorious state would last. Having found freedom at last we would let nothing stand in the way of the freedom of our wrists.
But, yes there's a but, somewhere in a dark cellar a group of people with a name quite similar to a popular fruit were scheming. They had other plans for our wrists. They said it was because they wanted to propel mankind into the next level of technological development. Their intentions were noble they said. You and I off course know better. There is nothing noble about stealing the freedom we so lung yearned for.
Or is there?
After extensive testing it turns out this Apple Watch thing actually isn't such a bad idea. I mean, I personally figured it would steal away what little time I had left for the real world, but it actually turned out to do the opposite. By being readily available I use my devices less. It doesn't really make sense, but it appears to be what's happening.
Here's how. Before the watch I'd experience a constant tingling, beeping and signaling from the right pocket in my pants. Now, instead of going to a doctor, like any sane person would do, I took action. With great determination I readied my hand, made sure it was ready to handle the situation, and with a swift and firm movement I grabbed the thing that was signaling in my pocket. You'd think that would be the end of it, but it wasn't'. You see what was in my pocket was my smart phone (as you have most likely guessed, astute reader as you are) and the reason it had made all those sounds was that it was trying to tell me something. It was trying to tell me that Bob had send me an email, Lisa a text, and a host of my "closest" friends were trying to get my attention on Facebook.
Obviously I had no other choice, but to answer the urgent messages, attempt to (and fail) avoid the not so urgent ones, and not get dragged (again failing) into that time stealing game I love so much. Using all my willpower I got back into the world as soon as possible having passed no more than an hour on my device.
An exaggerated example? Perhaps. I'll give you that. But when you think about it is it really that far from the truth?
The simpler interface on the Apple Watch makes it a great choice for people like you and I who really want to avoid wasting time on their devices. You can check what's urgent, reply to it and get back to the world ASAP. Obviously you can do a lot more, but you'll have to get the Apple Watch 42mm Stainless Steel Case with Black Leather Loop for yourself to find out.
Ever since the late Steve Jobs came back to Apple they have been all about innovation, quality and style. Every product they have launched has in some way moved the way we use technology further. Even the staunchest Apple hater will have to admit they have shown us how to use technology in new ways. Sometimes they have taken existing technologies and improved them, sometimes they've created something entirely new, this time they're taking a very old technology and bringing it back to life. It wouldn't surprise me if they started to look back in history to find ways to revolutionize and modernize technology from ancient times (you know, actual ancient times). The watch is something a lot of us had more or less forgotten about. With the advent of the cell phone and later the smart phone most of us haven't even thought about wearing a watch. For Apple this has provided an opportunity. An opportunity to bring the technology we already love even closer to us. To our wrists to be more specific.
The Apple Watch 42mm Stainless Steel Case with Milanese Loop is a product that combines functionality and style in ways you've never seen before. The versatility of the Apple Watch is perhaps its greatest strength, and depending on how you accessorize for it there are numerous ways it can be used. There are a ton of sports bands out there that make it a perfect substitute for the popular fitness trackers. However, some people will prefer going in another direction. If that is you the Milanese Loop is a great option. It gives your Apple Watch a really classy look that will compliment a formal or corporate look perfectly.
There is no doubt that at 42mm the Apple Watch seems clunky compared to traditional watches. That's because it is. There is simply no way you can fit all of that functionality into something smaller and still retain the usability levels you know from your Apple products. I have no doubt the appearance of the Apple Watch will change over time. That's what happens with technology, we use it and find out what works and what doesn't. Apple is a company that is very good at adapting their products to their customers needs. That is one of the main reason they are still on the very top of the pile. With the Apple Watc h they have come up with something we'd forgot we needed and made it suitable for any event.
The downside, as with most Apple products, is that you can't find it at discount prices. You get a high quality product and that's what you pay for. If you're looking for something less expensive you shouldn't be looking at the Apple Watch. You're buying style and cutting edge technology in one package.
Is it worth the price?
If you have the money to pay for it the Apple Watch 42mm Stainless Steel Case with Milanese Loop is a killer package. It is a very good looking product that gives you a ton of functionality and just oozes quality.
Whether you're a big fan of Apple or not it's undeniable that they innovate the way we use our devices. A decade ago people used watches to keep track of time. Then with the advent of smart phones watches became advanced jewelry with no real use. Why buy an expensive watch when you could just as well use your phone to keep track of time? That's the question a lot of people asked. I have a watch in my drawer at home that doesn't run anymore because I didn't replace the battery. Why would I? When I have the phone right in my pocket?
The only drawback of using your phone to tell time is that you have to get it in and out of your pocket all the time. And, when your phone is out there's a good chance you'll do a lot more things than just tell the time or check your messages. You'll be wasting your time. To solve this problem Apple brought back the watch as only they could. The Apple Watch Sport 42mm Case is a stylish solution to that problem. The watch will let you check important things like time and messages without interrupting you completely.
For 10 golden years our wrists were free, now, Apple are trying to imprison them once more. The question is if it is worth it.
If there is one thing Apple is know for it is style. The latest Apple product is likely to set the trend for how sleek and awesome a product needs to be to make it on the market. The Apple Watch is no exception. They have made it look really good when you could easily fear it would look clumsy. A big screen on the wrist? Not for me thank you. And that's what they handled really well. The key is maximizing usability without making it so big that it wears you down Being the first iteration of the watch there is no doubt we haven't seen the last of their attempts to get it just right, but from a style standpoint Apple are off to a really good start.
When I was a kid the great innovation was when you could get a watch with a built in calculator. The idea never really took off. The reason was that it became too clunky and really didn't do enough to justify it. With the Apple watch you're getting much of what you're getting with your smart phone, just on your wrist. You get the apps you already know and love which means the learning curve is pretty much non-existent. For a device as advanced as this it is extremely simple and practical to use.
So, what's the verdict? Well, the quality of the Apple Watch is exactly as you've come to expect from Apple, top of the line. The drawback of course is that so is the price. There's no sense in hiding that, but if you're a big fan of Apple products and like to have some of the coolest stuff on the planet you need to check out the Apple Watch Sport 42mm Case.
A stylish solution to a problem you didn't know you had. That would be the easiest way to label the Apple Watch Sport 42mm Space Gray Aluminum Case with Black Sport Band. However, there is much more to it than that. The next big thing is without a doubt going to be smart watches. Why? Because they help you stay connected far easier and help you keep track of important events without having to fetch your phone all the time.
Considering the only watches people have been wearing for the past decade have been luxury watches intended more as jewelry and status symbols than actual useful tools it's funny watching the old timepiece return in new clothing. I mean, who'd have thought the watch would ever be able to make a come back? The interesting question here is why that is actually happening. I mean, we've done well enough without watches ever since our phones reached a level where they were a feasible solution, right? Well, the problem is that smart phones aren't getting any smaller. If you look at the development over the last couple of years they have become increasingly bigger. That's because they need more features and because they need room for the computing power within them.
However, when you just need to check the time or see if you have any urgent messages they become somewhat clunky. The beauty of smart watches is how they allow you to utilize all the power of your smart phone without having to walk around with a big clunky device in your hands. That's a pretty brilliant solution.
The Apple Watch Sport 42mm Space Gray Aluminum Case with Black Sport Band package gives you everything you need. A great smart watch from apple and a stylish band that you won't mind showing off in public. It may imprison your wrist, but it frees your mind from all the distractions of your phone. Now, it's very simple to check your messages and you won't be lured into a ton of other tasks while you're checking it.
Fitness trackers have been the kings of wearable devices the last couple of years. The main reason is that even though even the lowliest smart phone can do much of what a fitness tracker can do there are very few practical solutions to bringing your phone with you while you're exercising. I mean, we've all tried or seen someone try carrying their phone on their arm. It's a solution that works, but it is far from convenient or elegant. That's the main reason fitness trackers have become so popular.
While I still think there will be a market for fitness trackers, simply because they excel at what they do, I do think the Apple Watch and other smart watches will cut into their market share. With the Apple Watch Sport 42mm Space Gray Aluminum Case with Black Sport Band you're getting an all in one solution that is great when you exercise and perfect when you're not.
There are watches and then there are watches. For many of us the thought of wearing a watch is a bit odd. I mean, isn't that something people stopped doing in the 00s? I mean, unless it's a very expensive watch, you're mainly using as luxury item. A piece of jewelry if you will. For most of us, however, this type of wearable accessory has become more or less redundant. The truth is most of us simply use our phone for this sort of thing.
In terms of fitness, watches had a similar purpose. You could basically use it to figure out how fast you could run. Again, this is a purpose the smart phone, albeit awkwardly, also fulfilled for us. So, once more, what is really the use of a watch? Not much a lot of us would say.
Apple, being Apple, had another idea though. What if you put most of the stuff you had in the smart phone into your watch? Would that not be a far more convenient option than running around with your iPhone in your shoulder. Strapping something to your shoulder doesn't necessarily make it a very good idea. Carrying something that is lightweight and handy on your wrist. However, works much better.
Also, you have to give them that it's a very smart business idea. Why make a wearable accessory redundant when it has so much more potential. Now, I realize this might sound a bit like I'm thinking they have some ulterior motive behind creating it. They have. It's a good way to make money and as long as the product is good there's nothing wrong with that really.
So is it any good? Now, I've had mine for a little while now and here's what I'm thinking. As a fitness tracker it works fantastic. It's got far more versatility than other dedicated fitness trackers on the market. It does the actual fitness tracking just as well due to the vast number of apps suited for the purpose. However, I'm really pleased to see that it does that well, and so much more.
You see, the Apple Watch is far more than a fitness tracker. It's a very handy organizer, email client, social media connectivity too, and entertainment center all in one package. The main worry, in fact, is that maybe it's a little bit too compact. However, I have to say solutions such a using the crown for zooming are pretty ingenious.
I still wouldn't use it to try to type up longer passages of text. It's just not suited for that, but it works well if you're merely trying to type a quick response to an email. There is absolutely nothing stopping it from doing that, and doing it well.
All in all, I am very pleased with my purchase. I picked the sports band version because I do use it a lot for tracking my fitness progress. I had some concerns about whether or not that would look weird when I wasn't using it for business purposes. it doesn't, It simply looks like the cool gadget it is.
Why get a fitness tracker when the Apple Watch can give you the same features and much more? It is a fair question and it's not getting easier justifying the fitness tracker when you realize the host of different solutions you can get for carrying the Apple Watch around. Solutions like the Apple Watch Sports 42mm Silver Aluminum Case. A case designed especially for the active person who enjoys sport. The thing about the Apple Watch that I feel is a bit different is how they have got so many different solutions on the market so fast. It makes me genuinely believe the Apple watch will be the major technological development of the last 5 years. Obviously, Samsung and other big companies will be hot on their heels, but you can't really deny that Apple does it with a level of style and panache the others never really manages to get close to.
I have a mate who's a great fan of the fitbit. He loves gadgets of all kinds and I know he's very happy about it. It's a bit surprising to me that he didn't go for the Appe Watch as it can do most of what the fitbit does, but one issue can obviously be the cost. Let's not kid ourselves. Apple products aren't cheap. On the plus side you know you've got one of the best products on the market. a Trrue top of the line product.
If I were to choose between a fitness tracer and a smart watch I'm not sure I would pick the tracker. I mean, not when I can get so much more in the same package. The Apple Watch Sports 42mm Silver Aluminum Case is a great example. It comes with Ion-X glass Retina display, heart rate sensor, accelerometer and gyroscope. These are built-in from the start and lets the device track every move you make and help you stay fit.
However, it's not just a fitness device. Even though the sport band is designed to work well in active situations it still looks pretty good away from the tracks. It's definitely a watch you wouldn't be ashamed of wearing in other circles as well. The Apple Watch Sports 42mm Silver Aluminum Case package is a multi-purpose solution that helps you deal with many different things. Usually those kinds of products don't do any of those things at the top level, but the Apple Watch does. It is pricey, but it is a case of getting what you pay for.
Do I recommend it? If you're looking for a smart watch and know you can afford it I wouldn't hesitate. It is one of the very best smart watches on the market. It is the first iteration and that means there may be some flaws, but if you won't to be a first mover and innovator you should get on board now. More than 50% of all Americans are considering getting a smart watch. Are you telling me you're not going to be one of them?
