As someone who never really wore a watch, I’ve been surprisingly hooked on the Apple Watch.
Though I’ve had analog and digital watches over the years, none had managed to stick. I felt that having a device whose only function was to tell me the time didn’t deserve full-time placement upon my body. I wasn’t some sort of weird time addict that needed instant access. I also got a Kickstarter-edition Pebble smartwatch and found it lacking.
So, my mini review for the Apple Watch for non-watch wearers is that it’s an incredibly compelling piece of technology. They just got it right.
But one thing I missed was that I couldn’t get the right strap. I could get a Milanese Loop in silver if I wanted to spend a small fortune to get a strap that didn’t match my watch (in black aluminium). But that’s why third party straps come to the rescue and now I’m very happy to have one in black.
It’s now completely replaced the black nylon band and at a fraction of the price.
