Andy, this post is too tempting! Hope you excuse me making some fun out of it (not of you, beware). As I know for sure that laughing more is definitely helping us for not getting heart attacks or -problems with that organ
The number one thing that the Watch will do that ordinary fitness trackers won't do is to save lives.
I am absolutely certain that the Apple Watch is going to save tens of thousands of lives. How?
The new watch (not mine, not just yet) will come with Watch OS 4 and the all important heart monitoring app. The app not only tracks your heart rate but warns you when you are about to have a heart attack.
A cardiologist told me that half the people getting a heart attack know it after they died. I just imagie me climbing some roads around Lake Bohinj, my watch tells me "hey you're about to die" and all I can think is "good to know, we all gonna die anyway, but the last f***ing thing I want to share this special moment with is a nosy watch.
Yes, it learns over time what is and what is not normal for you.
I'm sure you know that most people who die of a heart attack don't recognise the warning signs. But the Watch does and it says to you “Hey, you are about to die. You better do something”. Or something to this effect.
Other things that were only in the sci-fi films are now a reality. You can now make a cellular call without having your phone with you. Truly amazing, no?
And for those who have an understanding of their spouses, you can send each other your very own heart beats. Not a big deal to many, I'm sure. But I can tell you that the wife getting my heartbeat tells her about us in ways that needs no words.
That's excellent, I gonna order a dozen. Does it come with or without spouse? And how do you know, or how does your wife know, she's looking forward to become a widow or your workout is a bit more stressful after three bottles of wine last night or you became excited, not to mention aroused by, say, a new lens, certain (maybe even female) people in swimwear or one of these intelligent and highly charming comments of me? I think there's still some room for improvements, don't you agree? Maybe I'll wait for the next generation. Just keep me posted.
The list goes on. Very soon, you will be able to pay at a check out by simply raising your watch at the cashiers, doing away with finding cards and fumbling with passcodes that we often forget.
With or without tipp?
But hey, people can remain skeptical. What can I say?
Oh, the Watch is telling me to stand. Think it's a gimmick? Ask yourself how often you take the time to stand for 1 minute every hour?
Don't need to ask me that: My office desk moves from low (sitting) to high (standing) position in half second - and I'm a fanatic standing PC user, as thoughts are flowing better.
