I originally pre-ordered an Apple Watch but then a few weeks later decided i didn't need one and cancelled it. However it was my birthday recently and i thought what the hell ill get myself one and see what its all about. Having read lots of peoples opinions and read lots of reviews i was partly expecting myself to be returning it quite quickly. But you know what? Im really quite impressed with it. This is coming from someone who has tried on 2 occasions to get on with an iPad and ended up selling it both times after never using it and not seeing the point. The watch is different though... Firstly i needed a watch, plain and simple. I haven't worn one for years but getting a bit older now i think its something i really should have. So really one of the main reasons i bought it was because i wanted a watch and anything else was a bonus. I think this is what people don't quite understand. I think everyone expects it to be some amazing do it all device. But if you pair it back and think about the basics of what a watch should be, i think it does it exceptionally well. I don't actually use hardly any of the apps on it, aside from glances. I mean whats the point in looking on Twitter or something? Might as well get your phone out for that! Im really enjoying it though. I love the little taps you get for notifications and the little added bonuses. Love the fact i can change the music in my car from my wrist (I just plug my phone into my car with a phono cable so this is a real bonus for me), the map direction taps and the awesome tracking it does which is really encouraging me to get up off my lazy ass and do some exercise. Also barely ever used Siri ever until i got my watch but now i use it to reply when I'm driving or whatever. So i guess I'm just writing this for people like me who after all the reviews and stuff aren't sure. But I'm really pleasantly surprised and I'm sure its only going to get better. Bearing in mind i only went for the cheap Black with Black sports band. But i decided i liked the look of that model watch but wanted the leather loop because it was so comfortable after trying it on in the store. Bit silly maybe as the cost is almost as much as the SS with BSB, but i think its a great looking combo and looks really classy. The Sport Band isn't that great in my opinion, looks and feels cheap. The straps other than the sports band, albeit stupidly expensive, are really lovely. Anyway... Thought i would add a picture!
