Apple

I bought an Apple Watch, and I've been wearing it for about two weeks. I'm a notorious mobile computing fanatic and early adopter. How does it hold up to real-world use? How does it compare to the hype?

Let's get this out of the way: I've been waiting for an Apple Watch for a long time. While a lot of people were quick to dismiss the whole idea, I've been on board with the idea of a wrist-mounted companion to a smartphone since I first started using a smartphone. I never bought a Pebble or any of the other first generation smart watches, largely because I've been around the block long enough to know that it's hard to be an early adopter, but partially because I wanted to wait and see what Apple would come up with.

I can confidently say that if I were to review the Gshock, it would be a more clearly positive review than my Apple Watch one. The Gshock, sadly, doesn't let me monitor how close my Uber is, though.

Well, you could appear to be more of a wizard with friends by noting the uber estimated arrival time when ordered and accounting for things like traffic or conditions.

"Well, the ETA was 10 minutes, but my dear watson, the cloud formation at this time of day will reflect the sunlight in a most unpleasant way as the driver makes his way westward down Washington St. He shall be delayed until .. right ... about ... now!"

Tell me that's not cool.
