Second Thoughts on the Apple Watch

I suppose that's a bit of a misleading headline, because I am not reconsidering my disinclination to want an Apple Watch. I've just been thinking further about why I do not really see the need for one in my life, despite my general love for shiny new tech and Apple gear in general.First, I've been thinking about what it is that I like about the Pebble that I've been wearing as a watch the last few months. The "smart" feature I like best is notifications and alarms that alert me with a buzz on my wrist. First, I seem to miss a fair number of alerts when I have my phone in my pocket, but there's no way to sleep on your entire wrist vibrating. This ties in with the other thing I like about getting notifications on my wrist — that it all allows me to be connected without being overly connected. Case in point: I was just having coffee with a couple of friends. If I have my phone out on the table, it feels distracting, but I need to know if I am getting any urgent work messages or emails. Getting my alerts on the Pebble allows me to quickly see if there are messages I need, and disregard anything that can wait for later. I am connected, but I am not distracted by it. It's a nice safety net sort of feeling, and one that the Apple Watch would also provide. $400 just seems really steep for the service. Second, I've been thinking about fitness tracking and the Apple Watch. I've tried using my iPhone to count steps, and have recently been using a Fitbit Flex I received as a gift. What I've come to realize is that counting steps, for me, is useless. I know my exercise routine, and I know how much I walk in a given day. Knowing my step totals at this point does nothing for me, other than serve as an interesting footnote to a day when I walk a lot — 20,000 steps at a trade show is doable, people! Besides, the Health app in my iPhone is counting my steps already. The fitness stats I want to track are activity, calories burned and my heart rate, which I do now using a Wahoo heart rate monitor chest strap during exercise and the Runkeeper app. I think I am going to ditch the Fitbit because steps are extraneous to me, and because wearing/toting another thing seems a bit much (though I do love the silent alarms). An Apple Watch would also count my steps, and offers the chance to track my heart rate throughout the day. I think that would be extremely useful, but not $400 of useful. Third and last, thinking about the Apple Watch reminds me that while I like wearing watches, there are big chunks of time where I prefer not to wear a watch. I get the feeling that if I invested in an Apple Watch, I would force myself to wear it every waking hour to get the most bang for my buck. After seven-plus years of iPhone-ing, I am fine with having my phone with me 24-7. But I want a watch to be an occasional accessory, not another constant companion. I can justify spending money on an iPhone because I use it all the time. $400 for a watch I will wear in certain situations? No can do. Do not get me wrong — I think Apple Watch is a very cool product, and I can see there being a time when one fits into my life. But the current set of features and (mostly) the price are not in line with the value I think I would get from having one. $199 or $249? I think that's my threshold. At $400-plus, the word luxury aptly describes what an Apple Watch would be for me at this point.[NOTE: I reserve the right to overrule all of the above rational thought if I win the lottery or get a big tax return. Luxury and utility are moving targets.]

How to add Apple's logo to your Apple Watch clock face

With Apple Watch, users can select from a wide array of clock face color, style and complication customizations, but there's one option not available out of the box: Apple's own logo. Unlike traditional watch brands, which use space on the watch face to prominently feature their logo, Apple declined to make its branding available to users. That Apple does not offer up its logo is no surprise, as the company hardly ever puts the iconic emblem in the face of a device owner, opting instead to emblazon the mark on the back of products in plain view of passersby. The MacBook's "upside down" logo placement is a good example of Apple's strategy. If the mark is installed to show right side up when the laptop is closed and facing a user, as was the wont of other computer makers just years ago, it would be upside down when open. As noted by AppleInsider reader Leo, adding Apple's logo to Apple Watch is hardly an arduous process, but it does require a few steps and a paired iPhone. Next, open the Apple Watch iPhone app and scroll down to Clock settings. Tapping on Monogram will bring up a text input window. Erase the preset monogram, or your personal initials if previously modified, tap the now empty text box and select Paste from the contextual pop up menu. Once the Apple logo is correctly keyed in under the Monogram setting on iPhone, it should quickly sync to your Apple Watch. Now on Apple Watch, enter the clock face selection and modification menu by performing a Force Touch operation in the clock app. Swipe left or right to select the Color face, then tap Customize. Alternatively, if you erased Color from your watch face presets, swipe right in the selector menu and tap the "" plus icon to add it to the list. In the Color face customization interface, swipe right to the complications selection tool and tap the center box. Rotate the Digital Crown to select Monogram, which should now bear a tiny Apple logo. Finally, Force Touch to set the clock face.

Apple Watch Review
Apple Watch reviewApple also recommends that you do not immerse the Watch in water — it has an IPX7 rating, and is "splash and water resistant but not waterproof," according to the support notes. Many reviewers have done just that and the Watch has emerged unscathed, but Consumer Reports had one of its seven Watch Sport units fail after 30 minutes of immersion, so there's always a chance.— — — — — —The Apple Watch is a great smart watch and finally a good dumb one tooPerhaps following up the Apple Watch Series 4 was not so dramatic—it was, after all, the fourth iteration of Apple's first wearable. But Apple has a bit of a problem on its hands when it comes to the long-held dominance of the iPhone: Sales are slipping for the first time in over a decade, and it needs to find additional revenue wherever it can to keep up the level of profits investors have become used to. The Apple Watch has not hit the heights that past products have achieved, like the iPod, iPad, or the iPhone, but it's proven itself over time to be a class-defining wearable that's getting more useful each year. So a slip-up would not be welcome.— — — — — —Original Apple Watch Band VS Third Party Apple Watch BandWhat Apple watch band should I get? This is a question that anyone who owns an Apple watch has had to consider. On one hand, there are tons the best Apple watch bands from different vendors which give you a wide selection to choose from. On the other hand, there are the original Apple watch bands that Apple makes and sells to its customers. The ability to change bands on your Apple watch is one of the best thought design features of the Apple watch. However, this leaves you with hundreds of bands to choose from. If you are looking for a conclusive comparison of original Apple watch bands versus third-party bands to help you in your next purchase, you are in the right place. When buying your Apple watch, you get one band with it. However, most people choose to change their bands to something more stylish and unique. For this reason, Apple sells a wide selection of Apple watch bands to their customers. A quick check on their website shows a number of bands from the company that are meant to give the customer a different option to style their watch. An ordinary sports band costs about 49 dollars with there being a wide array of Apple watch sports bands to choose from. If you are looking for something more stylish, then a leather, metal or Milanese bands will cost you anywhere from 100 dollars to way past 500 dollars for the premium models. Getting an original band made by Apple themselves gives you the assurance of top quality and the option of returning the product if it does not meet your expectations. Additionally, the shopping process is quite easy since you only need to visit an Apple store or go to Apple′s website to get yourself one of their bands. If you did a quick internet search for third-party Apple watch bands available in the market, you would be spoilt for choice. There are literally hundreds of different options available for customers. One thing that you will quickly notice in contrast with the original Apple watch bands is the much cheaper price for which you can get a band for your Apple watch. For instance, an Apple watch sports bands cost 49 dollars from any Apple store. An almost similar third-party replica will set you back less than 20 dollars. If Milanese is more your style, you can get one from the Apple store for 149 dollars. You can get a third-party Milanese band for just about 39.99 dollars. That is almost fifteen times cheaper than the original band. For a business-casual look, leather is, for the most part, the preferred material. Getting an original leather Apple watch band will cost you into the hundreds of dollars. A decent third-party leather apple watch band could cost you about 25 dollars. Do not get me wrong, the price is not the only criteria that should be considered when buying your next Apple watch band. Most of the original bands from Apple are costlier since they are also of better build quality. However, it is great to see just what you can get from third-party vendors for such low prices. One advantage of third-party Apple watch bands besides their low cost is the wide variety of options available. All major online retailers have at least a few on sale. You can even get really unique bands from sites like supwatch.com. The design options are endless when it comes to third-party Apple watch bands. Should I get an original Apple watch band or a third party apple watch band option? With the understanding of the different options that both sides have to offer, it is now time to answer the big question. Since price is the main difference between original Apple watch bands and third-party bands, the best option depends on your purchasing power. If the 49 dollars for a regular silicon sports band is affordable for you, then the original Apple watch band is a better choice for you. You will get better build quality and assured compatibility with your Apple watch since they all come from the same manufacturer. However, if you do not see the need to spend tens or even hundreds of dollars on a simple band for your Apple watch, then it makes much more sense to get a third-party band from one of the hundreds of vendors out there. You will not always be assured of the best quality but at least you get great bang for your buck. If you are more expressive and trendy, it is impossible to go wrong with third-party options. There are hundreds of differently designed bands and you can be sure to get one that fits your style. While Apple also offers a relatively large selection of Apple watch bands, they cannot get even close to the number of third-party options available in the market. In conclusion, buy an original Apple watch if you are focused more on quality and the brand name. For cheaper bands and a wider selection of designs, you will never go wrong with one of the third-party Apple watch bands.
