Apple watch reviews

A few days away from preordering begins (10th April 5:01pm)  there have been lots of reviews coming in about the Apple Watch.

The Verge review (includes youtube videos too) seems to have somewhat negative tone but seems fair.

There is also a detailed review from mashable too which has a slightly more positive tone.

Macrumors has a good list of reviews and compiled thoughts from various reviewers too with an emphasis on battery life. Which is generally pretty good typically lasting a working day. 

A couple of reminders about the Apple Watch from this seems to be:

  • It is a fitness tracker (via heart rate and motion sensors)
  • It is a alternative notification system (handy if you have your phone near you but hard to reach in a bag or stuck in your jeans pocket)
  • But when setting it up, turn off all but the most important notifications for you.
  • It is a watch with an intriguing graphic interface with lots of attention to horological details
  • It requires an iPhone for many daily functions.
  • Battery life can be extended through reserve power mode.
