The Apple Watch has Landed!
12.57pm- Watch delivered to office. I terrify the delivery man by popping up from my desk like a whack-a-mole. Mild staff panic ensues
12.58pm- Box opened, much oohing and ahhhing. Luckily no one is trampled
12.59pm- Admire snappy watch with my outfit. Conclude everything goes with leopard print
1.00pm- Everyone has gone for lunch, I am left to sort out the watch. My precious….
1.04pm- Victory is mine! I have got the watch synced to my iPhone
1.06pm- Uh oh. I have just unsynced the watch from my iPhone
1.08pm- Must get this fixed before everyone finds out and I’m mocked mercilessly
1.10pm- Cannot respond to the messages I sent crowing about the watch because it is still trying to re-sync. Oh, the shame
1.40pm- Everyone returns from lunch and ping pong, no one is the wiser to my mishap. Muhaha
2.04pm- While driving home I receive a phone call. Huzzah! I answer and talk into my wrist like I’m in Star Trek. Make a mental note of the ease in which I can answer calls while driving
3.00pm- Meet friend at Starbucks. Am stared at and approached by strangers. Is this what it feels like to be famous?
3.30pm- Am rudest person alive because I keep checking my watch to see if anyone is contacting me. Shocker, no one is
3.40pm- I walk home and talk into my wrist again. Perhaps I should consider a job in the Secret Service…
4.00pm- Continue fighting watch for dominance. Wondering why two and a half years in IT has not prepared me for this moment
4.05pm- Begin charging watch in anticipation of people wanting to inspect it tonight at a BBQ
Stay tuned for next week’s (more in-depth) instalment of the Apple watch review!
