Apple Watch: One year later. Are you still wearing it?When the Apple Watch came out in April 2015, everyone was excited and curious. We unboxed it. We showered with it. We torture tested it. One year later, we asked CNET editors what became of the Watch.
[SOUND] [MUSIC] [SOUND] [MUSIC] I wear the Apple watch every day. No I do not.>> No I wear my Apple watch pretty much everyday, it's kind of my everyday thing, I don't really leave the house without it. Not anymore. Why Not? ??>> It just didn't make any sense for me. I only wore it for about Six month straight, but I don't wear it anymore. Because it does not do enough for me. I probably wear my Apple Watch everyday for the first three or four months. But unfortunately, the lack of strap options really prevents me from doing that. To me it is mostly useless. It turned out that for just about everything faster to pull the phone number. I wear mine on my left wrist. It's on my wrist. It's sitting in my drawer at my desk. In my office, ready to get sold on eBay. I sold it on Craigslist actually made a slight profit on it. It buzzes my wrist whenever I get an important email. Easy access to things like My messages and seeing sports scores. I love how it looks. I like that I can glance at it and see the time without pulling out my phone. My wife jokes that it saved our marriage, and I don't think it's that much of a joke. Because I'm no longer checking my phone all the time. [MUSIC] I tried using it in every way possible. I just didn't enhance my life in any way, shape, or form. The apps are really not that interesting. It was complicated. I think the software really lacking. You cannot rely on it to come on when you bring it up to your face. And so I find myself doing this twice just to check the time. [BLANK_AUDIO] I'm wearing my Marc Ecko bling bling. See that? Bling bling thing? I'm wearing a pebble time steel Now. Usually when I don't wear my Apple Watch, it's because I wanna wear a pretty bracelet. I prefer my Timex with [UNKNOWN], that's about it. [MUSIC] I think the Apple Watch is really great for specific people, people who are incredibly plugged in. The reality is, you're gonna spend Over $300 on this thing that they might not use every day. If they want it because they're hardcore apple, I say, "Go for it!" It's not going to change your life. If you're interested in it, there will probably be better ones coming out later. I will Give the Apple Watch a second chance once it has a killer feature that no smartwatch has. Wait for version 2.0 just because I think it can only get better from here. [MUSIC]
