Steve Kovach with his experience on the first few days of Watch ownership. Guess what? There’s a learning curve.
The Apple Watch isn’t a mini iPhone strapped to your wrist. It’s a brand-new type of gadget that has its own control scheme. It took me a good day to learn what all the various swipes, taps, buttons, and dials do. But now that I’m used to it, I don’t even think about how to operate the Apple Watch. The controls may sound complicated at first, but they become second nature sooner than you’d expect.
- The display is mostly off
- Notifications useful, not annoying
- Use it as a watch, too
- 3rd party apps are mostly bad
- Sport band is good
- Battery life better than expected
