When the Apple Watch launched, I was not an early adopter. I didn’t see how I would use it, and frankly, I didn’t like the way it looked. But I had an “aha” moment yesterday and now I fully get the watch’s usefulness.
My clubs have a strict “no cell phone” policy (they cannot be visible at any time), and in business meetings and at school events I mute my phone. Like everyone, I’ve been a victim of strangers who yak away on their phones without any regard for those around them, so I understand why this policy exists. However, recently I came out of a lunch to a barrage of emails from the school nurse alerting me that my daughter had a fever and needed to be picked up. She’d been trying to reach me for two hours. With the Apple Watch, I would have quietly received these notifications and could have made my excuses and left.
And the best news is the Hermès + Apple collaboration, now my concerns about how the watch looks are completely null and void—sign me up!
The Apple Watch Hermès will be in stores early October.
