I spent 34 years without the Apple Watch, here is my review.
I mostly know the time at any given moment of the day because a few devices have a handy clock incorporated into them. My phone tells me, my computer tells me, my microwave tells me (I don’t have a microwave, but I don’t have an Apple Watch either, and that this post is about the Apple Watch, not microwaves).
When I workout I tend to sweat, even without an Apple Watch on my wrist. This should help me expelling toxins (I feel so detoxed right now) and cool down my body. I don’t know exactly my heart frequency but I noticed that it increases when I put extra effort in lifting weights.
If I run I get tired, a little less if I ride my bike, but it depends on the distance and the gradient of the terrain.
I turned off notifications from my phone, I might do the same on my Apple Watch. Or maybe not. I have not decided yet.
I tend to glance at my wrist, no big changes so far: the hand is still firmly attached to my arm and that’s the way I like it.
So far so good.
Main reasons I don’t have an Apple Watch
The main reason I have spent 34 (almost 35) years without an Apple Watch is partially depending on the fact that for the vast majority of this time span the Apple Watch had not been invented yet. Another reason, covering the last few days, is that I have not purchased an Apple Watch yet, nor do I have pre-ordered one. The third reason I don’t have one is no one has given me one yet.
I might get one soon, but given the amount of reviews I’ve seen popping up online, I didn’t want to deprivate the world from my personal review about not having an Apple Watch.
