I got it for notifications at first. I hated my phone screen lighting up every time something came in, making me look at it and inevitably unlock it and lose half an hour doing nothing. Now my phone doesn’t ever light up, I just check my wrist to see if it’s something important (and I’ve become very good at disabling notifications for most apps too) and only then, unlock my phone if I need to. I reply to most messages just on the wrist.
After buying it, I also became a lot more health concuss. It was unrelated initially, but now seeing how many calories I’ve burned at the end of the day, after my workouts, walks to and from the office etc, it really helps motivate me. I hate having an ill day where I see I haven’t even reached 500 calories over the whole day
And things like Apple Pay are incredible, it still makes me feel like living in the future. And with the cellular versions now, being able to go out with just a pair of earphones and stream music, check maps and get locations, and make and receive calls, still blows my mind.
