Every time someone tells you that the Apple Watch is the coolest gadget ever invented, they lie. Sure, Apple’s attempt at coming up with a cool smartwatch is far from being a fail - but the Watch is not nearly as cool as it could be.
How do I know that? I own one.
I bought my Apple Watch in Estonia (it’s a tiny little country in the North of Europe, stuck between Russia and Finland) well before it was even officially on sale in the country and, as Apple fanboys often do, I paid a premium for it.
I won’t disclose the numbers but I will just tell you that, to get my Apple Watch, I had to:
- Jump in a black BMW with dark windows
- Pay an insane amount of money in cash to a complete stranger
- Give my money away before I even got the chance to open the box
Is the Watch worth that price? No..
Most of the times, it sits on my office desk because it’s out of battery or because I just don’t need it. When I am at work, I have my MacBook Pro on. When I am not there, I am glued to my iPhone.
Would I buy it again? Yes. If you don’t see any logic in this, it’s because you are not a fanboy. Obviously.
Don’t buy it. Win it
There are some pretty cool things about the Apple Watch, though. Like the way Maps work.
I travel a lot, and thanks to the Apple Watch I don’t get lost that much anymore. Let me give you an example: say that you want to meet a friend who is at a bar you don’t know, in a city you don’t know. How do you find him?
A) You can go on Google, look for the place, find the bar’s address, tap it on Google Maps, and then walk with your eyes on your phone or…
B) You can ask your friend to share their location through Facebook, tap on it, and let the Watch guide you through the city one turn after the other.
If you don’t have an Apple Watch and you want to try this little (expensive) trick, I have a good news for you: you don’t need to spend $400 to buy one - you can win one at William Hill Vegas for free.
