I hadn't planned on getting an Apple Watch originally -- I was going to sit it out for this generation at least. I always like gadgets, and Apple gadgets in particular, but something about it didn't quite click for me. But then I read a bit more about the fitness features and realized two things. One was that having something track my movements, heartbeat and so forth could be a pretty powerful motivator to get me up and moving. I really like the tracking and "badges" concept. I sit at a computer most of the day (often even when I don't have to) so I really need something to motivate me to exercise. The second thing was that I could totally tell my wife that I was getting it to lose weight and get her blessing for the purchase. Seriously though, I do plan to do a lot more walking after getting the watch. While there are probably more capable fitness trackers out there, they wouldn't have all the other features of the watch, which I'm really looking forward to. Anybody else have similar thoughts?
