‘My Apple Watch is an awareness amulet’

Fraser Spiers summarizes how his Apple Watch fits into his life:

Before I get into my thoughts about what the Watch is good for, I think we should acknowledge something: it is a complete nonsense that Apple ever shipped an operating system where in about 3 in 5 tries, an app simply will not launch. To me, this is the glaring flaw in Apple Watch: apps need to be instantly available at all times and respond quickly. Otherwise, what’s the point? If it’s not quicker than reaching for the phone, why bother?…

While the Apple Watch is a nice-to-have in leisure times, I have found it to be indispensable at work. The range of things I use it for is narrower, but the extent to which I depend on it is far more significant…

My Apple Watch is an awareness amulet. It’s a small-scale organisational superpower and I would not want to teach a day without it again.
