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 still don't see a use for a "smart watch". The article itself seems like the author is just trying to justify spending another $350+ because he's afraid he might miss a phone call.

"Girl, please." The world isn't going to end. Good for you, you drank the Apple cool aid, again, and bought a "shiny" like a typical gadget magpie. You're definitely in Apple's demographics.
