I demoted my Apple Watch

I’ve been debating whether to continue using the Apple Watch for a while now. AppleWatch has definitely gotten better since launch, but still hasn’t found a killer app/feature. Activity tracking is the thing that has kept it on my wrist. I had a Fitbit for years, and loved the data collection around my daily activities and health, Apple upped that game.

If I were to buy a new Apple Watch I’d likely buy the smaller face model so it’s a little less “obvious”

Wearing two watches admittedly is some solid ’80-90s stuff, but so far it’s working.

I’ve dialed down the notifications on the watch so it’s just stuff I really really want to know about. I’ve switched to a face that shows temp, and activity.

Apple Watch as activity trackerI do miss seeing my calendar entries, but that’s a small price to pay. I’ve already begun rotating through my watch collection again and love it. I need to go to a jeweler and get batteries put in a few. They’ve been neglected too long and their batteries are dead.
