I bought a Gen-0 Apple Watch on launch, great device for fitness, weather, and notifications, don’t really care about clocks, that’s what I use calendar notifications for; but after 3.5 years it’s down to under an hour battery charge, and the watch face acts weird, I think it’s loose, so I don’t wear it anymore.
So I just pre-ordered the Gen-4 Apple Watch, ships early next month. Same black aluminum, light and durable enough, original had the plastic “sports band” which got a little sweaty, so this time I got the cloth strap and a Nike “volt” black and green band (yes, my color theming is the same in RealLife™), see which of those I like better.
Does heart tracking make anyone else nervous, though? Like maybe I don’t wanna know. The BPM measure and rings I don’t obsess about completing on the original are more nagging than I want.
