Dead Apple Watch

Well, the fun continues here with yet another hardware failure. I think this is the third in three weeks? First my Drobo, then my MacBook Air, now, it’s my Apple Watch.

Note the color, the fact that you can see only the left 2/3 of the screen, and the white dot along the top edge at the top of the part that doesn’t display.

As you can see, my watch done broke. So here’s the story. I was out getting exercise this morning before work, alternating walking and jogging because well, I’m a fat slob who can’t jog for 30 minutes straight.

I had my iPhone in my pocket and watch on left hand, and the only thing I can figure is that while jogging and not paying attention, I swung my watch into my iPhone corner.

I actually ram my hand into my phone fairly often. Almost every time I go out. Like most of men’s shorts, they’re pretty baggy, and my phone jostles around in them a lot.

Anyway, there is no fixing that. It’s a replacement cost, which I could have gotten for a price, but I decided to just upgrade to a new Series 2 Watch.

So now I have a better watch, I guess. I really didn’t want to buy one though. I was hoping to snag a Series three watch when they came out in hopes they had sleep tracking.

Oh well, we’ll see how things go in the future. The good news here is that I won’t need to take my phone with me on jogs anymore as long as I load up my watch with stuff to listen to.

I just wish it did better about pre-loading podcasts and audible books rather than just workout music. Honestly, who wastes valuable exercize time on music rather than learning something?

Till tomorrow,

Tom
