I’m being watched

Smartwatches have come a long way in the last few years, to the point I’ve succumbed to the pressure (!) and got myself one.

I didn’t want an obvious ‘look-at-me’ shouty watch like the Apple or Samsung ones, for no other reason than I have other devices to do things like manage my music, take phonecalls, notify me of updates, etc. Plus, I just don’t like the look of them. I didn’t want a plastic or rubber strap … utlimately I wanted a watch with some activity/fitness tracking rather than a full-on ‘smartwatch’; I wanted something in-between. Let’s face it, I’m not very active either, so a fitness tracker was a waste too.
One reason for resisting the ‘need’ to have one is that most people I know who do have one is that they all feel a slave to the ‘daily goal’ activity. I don’t want to be like that.
