Do you remember a time before the smart phone? I kinda do, but way back in my memory (I will admit I don’t have a very good one!) My point here is that, before I watched the promo video for the Apple Watch I wasn’t convinced that I would ever need something like THAT and I would far rather have a Cartier, Rolex or Chanel timepiece. Why would I want a timekeeper that looks like a miniature iPhone strapped to my wrist?
Well, todays question to myself is, which one am I choosing?
All I know is that this little piece of technology will basically run your life. You can text, what’s app, email, use google maps, request an Uber, call your mom, summon Siri and besides all that, it will also do that basic telling the time thing within “50 milliseconds of the definitive global time standard” – what does that even mean?
For every message or alert you set on this thoughtful timepiece, it will give you a gentle tap and you can even connect with your favourite people by sending your own little tap or your heartbeat, HOW CUTE?!
But wait there’s more! There’s a model (Watch, Watch Sport and Watch Edition) and price point (from $350 to $10 000) for everyone. Even model, mama, marathon runner and Every Mother Counts activist, Christy Turlington Burns was the first person ever to complete a race with this clever mini device, and this is what she said, “In the short time I’ve been using it, I can already see how this is going to be an important part of my life.” See her marathon training diary here.
So if like me you were a little sceptical, thinking this is not a style piece to be included on your lust-have list, then check out the TV advert – let me know what you think!
