A Few Apple Watch Thoughts

  • Scratches show up on stainless steel easier than I expected. Thankfully it's pretty easy to polish them out.
  • WatchKit apps have a lot better performance than I expected. Based on Twitter, I thought they'd be pretty much unusable.
  • Parts of the UI are a bit laggy, but I suspect that'll be fixed in a software update.
  • The screen switching on automatically really only works when you're standing with your arms at your side.
  • If I don't wear the band fairly tightly, I miss taps.
  • I love not having everyone around me know when I get a notification.
  • Not having to fish my phone out of my pocket to find out why it's buzzing is just as great as I hoped it would be.
  • I would really like a way to know who in my address book has an Apple Watch.
