    It feels like a real life version of Her. Like Joaquin Phoenix, so many early adopters have fallen in love with their Apple Watch. Do you talk to your watch? Do you feel that connection when your watch pulses on your wrist? Does your watch know just what to tell you? Are you a little less connected to reality because you are in this new relationship with your watch?

    I read this as "It's hurrrr" as in "My watch has arrived".

    uhhh. It is pretty far from "her"

    If a device like that truly existed people would be really disconnected from reality.

    IF you configure the Watch app on your iPhone correctly, this watch is a great little personal assistant. I am finding new use cases almost every day at this point. The taps on the wrist are just part of the usefulness.

    great username!

    I get the functionality, I was commenting more on the fact that the obsession and insanity level around here with the watch, getting the watch, not getting the watch yet, and some of the comments about how amazing it is remind me a bit of Her. I do understand that it is a functional personal assistant that complements the iPhone quite well. I think some people are losing sight of that.

    Well my Apple Watch is cute company in a Tamagotchi kind of way. And it's like a sweet slightly addled grandmother, telling me to stand when I finally got the animals fed and walked, everyone else off to school and work, and can at long last sit down with my coffee and rapidly cooling breakfast. :rolleyes:

    I politely ignore it, and like a sweet addled grandma it praises me for reaching some weird stand goal anyway. I've no idea what it's blathering about, but it's nice to know it cares and is looking out for me and wants to build up my self esteem with peppy praise.

    Then a few minutes later it reminds me to take my allergy meds.

    Sometimes it tells me to stand just as I've sat down on the toilet. And Siri thinks I was trying to tell my husband that aunts were invading our kitchen, not ants. So it's a little comedian as well.

    And I was planning on buying cute outfits for it, in a sense, by getting new bands for it. So yeah, I'm a bit daft over the thing, I suppose.
