Week 1 of the Experiment – During Week 67 of the Project
So I am waiting for an off-site meeting to start. I check the time. On my experimental watch – if it can be called that. Smartwatch is more appropriate.
Later in the meeting, during a lull, I check on what’s been causing my wrist to tingle with the vibration from the Notification system.
Then Facebook – which I ignore – I am on the clock until lunch time.
Then at lunch I check the schedule for the weekend.
Ah, one of the grandsons has a baseball game . He’s 7.
The local weather – in the GTA – that’s the Greater Toronto Area – hmm – rain is coming.
Nothing That Couldn’t Be Done With The Smartphone
But that was in my shirt breast pocket. Could have been in another pocket or across the room.
So I think I like it – as an early warning system.
What Else Ya Got?
- Voice/ Memo Recorder
- Photo Camera
- Video Camera (15 second clips)
- Music Player
- Heart Rate Monitor and History
- Stop Watch
Those are they key things I have been experimenting with.
Video clip from inside the elevator:
… Belay My Last – the file for a 15 second clip is 22MB …
I have yet to experiment with the following:
- WatchOn Remote (for your TV)
- S Voice
- QR/Barcode Reader
- and a few others.
What It Doesn’t Do – Yet
- Allow me to read the News
- Do online banking
- Post to Facebook, Twitter or LinkedIn
But then I can do those things on the Smartphone that’s in my pocket or across the room.
That’s my report for today.
So far so good. I think I like it. Enough to continue the experiment and continue to wear it.
More to come.
