I stopped wearing a watch several years back, as my iPhone suffices for time keeping, but am Apple watch curious. The last few years, I’ve noted each generation of Apple watch drop and I’ve yet to see the killer app that convinces me to buy one. The iPhone has so may critical functionalities and apps that I use on the daily basis. I have yet to see any great functionality that the Apple watch brings.
Yes, it would be nice to wake up with a buzzing on my wrist, so my wife could sleep in. And yes, some of the heart rate functions are of interest. I get plenty of exercise without monitoring my steps, so no value there.
But honestly, I don’t get it. Am I missing something? It seems like a very cool toy. I’d love to hear some substantial conversation of what functionality the Apple watch brings, other than incremental convenience of not having to take my phone out of my pocket. I guess I figured by series 4 Apple would have figured out something more compelling.
Please take the above as it is meant, an honest inquiry into what I can get out of this technology. I don’t mean to demean Apple watch users, but I am seriously puzzled by the enthusiasm. When I ask friends with Apple watches, I get vague answers, so I am expecting the MPU community will provide more substance. Thanks!
