The Apple Watch After A Week Of Use

Bloomberg's Josh Topolsky spent a week with the Apple watch and can tell you if it's worth your money in the short video below. I will break into full on Old Fart mode right here and tell you it looks way too "fiddly" for me, with my sausage fingers and bifocals - and I would extend that comment to any of this class of smartwatch devices.

Digital watches were fine back in the day for telling time, but these digital wrist-borne accessories seem to me to just add a layer of complication to the concept of the smartphone, and that is addressed a bit in the video.

These sort of devices are technological wonders to be sure, and while it's not something most of us actually need, I expect they will sell well - maybe very well. We love our new toys - especially, it seems, Apple toys.
