Why I love the Apple Watch
Some claim it is superfluous and redundant technology and a royal pain to have to take it off to recharge the battery. I couldn't disagree more. I maybe got one with an exceptional battery but it charges up pretty fast, usually while I shower and get ready for the day. I can't think of any thing I don't like about it but I can illustrate better a couple of things that I do really enjoy about it.
I love answering the phone on it. The speaker and volume is excellent and I feel like 007 talking on the watch. It's an image thing, sorry 😊 . I was wearing my blue vested suit, and had on sunglassess at the grocery store when my watch rang. I tapped the answer button and began to have my conversation. I can't tell you the number of people that got very close to see who I was and how I could be talking to my watch. It was all I could do not to bust out laughing.
My appointments show up on the watch and the notifications are excellent. I get Breaking News and the reading of e-mail and text messages couldn't be easier. The new watch apps are just amazing and they can be real time savers.
You will notice that there is a 9:00 ActiveRain Webinar scheduled for tomorrow morning. When I touch that, the next window opens.

Yes of course I could do all this with the iPhone but I like doing it with the watch and it is right there where I need it.
I am not sure how this works in different areas, but I saved $100 when this watch was purchased at Christmas time. I read in the paper that Target was offering a $100 gift card with the purchase. The retail was $399.00 for the large 42cm version and with the $100 gift card, it was $299. Certainly very affordable for all that it does.
In case you read this post tonight ( Thursday at 9:00PM) the webinar is in the morning at 9:00AM PST. I will be on for the ActiveRain webinar and hope you can join in as well.
