Twenty five years ago I bought my first "expensive" watch. Every single time I put it on it gave me pleasure because I thought it was such a beautiful object. I feel like that about my Apple Watch. I didn't in the beginning. I bought an 42mm SS WSB and the WSB just made it seem cheap to me. That and the unreasonable expectations I'd allowed to build up in my mind made the whole thing a disappointment and I sent it back. A month later I finally committed to reordering a 42mm SS and, after experimenting with every band, went with the (silver) Link. Physically, as an object, it ticks ever box for me. It looks and feels expensive. (Which is just as well: it was expensive!) As a watch it looks good and keeps perfect time. As a smartwatch . . . well, I'm still figuring out how it fits in with my other tech and what it's really for. But I'm enjoying the process. We've had our ups-and-downs, but I'm really very happy with it. But my final thought is that I think Apple has made one mistake. For people like me (and I may well be in a minority here) their vastly overblown hyping of the watch set up expectations in my mind that (initially, at least) were not remotely met. Combine that with the enforced six week gestation period when all I could do was sit and think about the watch (not helped by being permanently logged in to these forums). (It's just after 10pm here and I've just taken the watch off. I find I can't wear it comfortably all day. But then I've never worn a watch all day.) Apple, you do make beautiful products which work beautifully (eventually). But they're not magic. They're not life-changing. They're not miraculous. They're just nice things to have. Most of the time.
