My Apple Watch has rekindled my Love of Swatches

As a kid I love Swatch Watches. I only had one, but had many Swatch Guards to add some color.  As I got older I could afford a few more, and did. I have a thing for watches, I love them. Eventually I moved from swatches to other watches. Lots and lots of other watches. Then I got an Apple Watch and at first just had one or two bands. Apple sells theirs for honestly a ridiculous Apple price, however Amazon has plenty of non Apple bands to choose from, in far more colors than Apple offers.

Then there’s the “OMFG I Hate them, they sold out” Then there’s the “You entitled pricks are pricks and aren’t owed shit” Then there’s the  “We aren’t owed things, but there is a sort of unspoken contract” I think all three are valid. Some folks just felt mad they paid money (whether the amount is significant or not is in the eye of the spender) for abandon-ware. Some  like to take the enlightened I’m-smarter-than-you approach and some like the look at things objectively. Each has it’s merits. This is…
