The Apple Watch has been the cause for many discussions about the limits of technology and its benefits. Most of us are using a desktop computer, a laptop, an iPhone and maybe also an iPad. We are almost always connected, I would say addicted in our gadgets and our digital lives. I include myself of course.. The Apple Watch is really a great gadget. It got me excited as soon as it was announced and if it were available back in last September, I would probably have gotten it on day one. Since though we all had many months to think about if we really need a SmartWatch in our lives, I started having second thoughts. One of the biggest benefits of the Apple Watch is the way it makes us use our iPhone less. Especially incoming notifications, answering to iMessages, getting up to date with our digital lives. The Apple Watch makes us even more connected. Of course we can always turn it off if we want to be disconnected for a while, but I am not sure many would go that path. Is it so important if we miss a notification, or if we just react to a notification a little bit later, when we can access our iPhone or/and other computers? Isn't it nice when having dinner with our friends and family to know that we have our iPhone with us, but just decide not to actively use it for two hours and concentrate on our beloved persons? Wouldn't having a Smart Watch make us never really concentrate on them? Never concentrate on actually living our lives? How much technology do we really need in our lives? What are the limits? What is next? I am not trolling here. I have an Apple Watch on order, but while waiting I am getting second thoughts about Smartwatches in general. I am sure the Apple Watch is the best SmartWatch out there, but I am beginning to question the existence of the whole category. Of course there are definitely people out there that commute a lot, that need access to their notifications all the time. I cannot believe that these people couldn't live without a SmartWatch. Sometimes technology is trying to do a lot, to help us live better lives, but it results in the exact opposite. Technology can cause us also a lot of stress. What are your thoughts? Please, only respond if you really have anything valuable to say. No trolling. I have not intend whatsoever to make the Apple Watch look bad. It's more of a philosophical discussion around the use of wearable technology. I love gadgets, but feel somehow that we are going over our limits. Too much technology can be bad sometimes.
