A smartwatch is a wearable computer in watch form; modern smartwatches provide a local touch interface for everyday use, while an associated smartphone app provides management and telemetry (such as long-term biomonitoring). While earlier models could perform basic tasks such as calculations, digital timekeeping, translation, and gaming, 2010.

smartwatches have more general features closer to smartphones, including mobile apps, a mobile operating system, and WiFi/Bluetooth connectivity. Some smartwatches function as portable media players with FM radio and playback of digital audio and video files via Bluetooth headphones. Some models, called watch phones (or vice versa), have mobile cellular features such as calling

It’s been just over six months since I first strapped an Apple Watch

I exercise more

Here are 10 things I’ve experienced since wearing the Watch every day .I worked out 3-4 times a week. Now I exercise 5-7 times a week. The catalyst was the Apple Watch and my focus on completing three activity rings each day.

I lost weight.

About five pounds, more or less. Thanks again to activity circles.


I still wear a Fitbit.

The Fitbit leaderboard, where I can see how many steps friends and family have accumulated during the week, is as motivating as wanting to complete the activity rings on the Apple Watch each day. Plus, I have years of Fitbit data that I want to keep replenishing. During the day when I’m not working out I wear a Fitbit One and when I’m not working out I wear a Fitbit Charge HR. I also wear the Charge HR for sleep tracking.

I’m afraid I’ll scratch my watch case.

Actually, I already scratched it. I noticed the first small scratch about a month ago. Scratching occurred even though I bought a stainless steel case, which I thought would be more scratch resistant than the aluminum case of the Apple Watch Sport models. At some point I’ll try to remove the scratches, per 9to5Mac’s advice.


I don’t run many apps.

Sometimes I browse in Glances. And sometimes I use Wunderlist on my Watch to check off items on my grocery list while I’m at the store. But that’s about it when it comes to using apps on my smartwatch.


I don’t change the dial.

It’s a constantly modular face for me. On it, I can quickly see the time, date, weather forecast, current Apple inventory, my progress in completing Apple activity rings, and how much battery juice is left. Sweet.Apple Watch modular watch face


I change bands regularly.

I daily change band of my smartwatch. Now I own six bands and rotate them 2-3 times a week. I especially like Apple’s red and navy blue sports bands.


I am glad I bought the watch.

No buyer’s remorse here. I wear it every day.


I will sell them once the second generation arrives

if the next Apple Watch models are thinner and lighter. They say they’ll have FaceTime cameras on them, but I don’t care.


If I had it to do over again,

I’d probably buy the aluminum Apple Watch Sport instead of the mid-priced Apple Watch. Not sure the extra hundreds on the Apple Watch were worth it.
