24 Hours with the Apple Watch

My Apple Watch arrived a few days ago. While I had been looking forward to its arrival, my enthusiasm was tempered by numerous news reports and reviews declaring the watch both expensive and confusing.

So it was with some hesitation that I slit open the packing tape and began unboxing the watch. The packaging itself is classically Apple. Lots of white plastic and custom cut, slightly sticky cellophane. When I finally got to the watch itself, I found it beautiful. This is the stainless steel model with sapphire crown and looks as much like a wearable museum piece as the Movado did when it was introduced decades ago.

But make no mistake, this is wearable technology and not art, however attractively packaged. If it fails to serve its intended function it will  become a useless piece of junk in the bottom of a drawer or appear on eBay in the near future.
