September 14 - Issue #7
M.G. Siegler
Yesterday, it was iPhone 7 reviews. Today, it was Apple Watch Series 2 reviews. And that response seemed more subdued. This was hardly a surprise given just how lackluster most found the first Apple Watch to be. And the only real differences here are GPS (running) and waterproofing (swimming). Smart moves, but won’t move the needle much in terms of the mainstream usage – at least not yet. 
Yes, I’m still going to get one. It’s a device I use every single day and this is the faster version of that device. But unlike with the iPhone, I doubt it will be worth it for most people – but I’ll reserve full judgement until I actually use the thing for an extended period of time. (I have tried it, and yes, it’s faster. But I’m not entirely sure how much is simply a result of watchOS 3, which is so much faster than watchOS 1 and 2.)
Anyway, still tweaking stuff here, but had some links to get out.
