The dumbest Apple Watch review you’ll ever read

This conversation has been happening once a day for the last few weeks. I should really have a better answer by now.

Person who isn’t me: How do you like your Apple Watch?
Me: I like it.
Person who isn’t me: What does it do?
Me: It tells the time.………..[Awkward Silence]………..And it shows my calendar.

I’m the worst Apple Watch salesperson on the planet.

The truth is, I really like the watch. I just can’t explain my like for it by listing out features. Because, if I did, then I’d have to say the features are probably only worth about $150 to me.

  • Tells the time — Meh. My phone can do that.
  • Tracks my activity — $100.
  • Notifies me of texts, Tweets, LinkedIn requests and emails — $50.
  • Tells me when and where my next calendar appointment is — Meh. Phone.
  • Tells me the weather — Meh. Look outside.

Even though I know the features are only worth about $150 (significantly less than Apple is charging), I would pay hundreds of dollars more than Apple is charging for the watch. I know, this doesn’t make any sense. Welcome to my life.

Somehow the Apple Watch is more valuable to me than the sum of it’s features.

One clap, two clap, three clap, forty?

By clapping more or less, you can signal to us which stories really stand out.
