It's amazing how satisfying just one little trip to an Apple Store can be. Especially if you are going to try on an APPLE WATCH SPORT.
At the beginning of the day I had no idea that such an idea would present itself by its end. But it did because the SconeLady's husband asked about whether or not she would like to go try one on. To take a look. To (perhaps) order one, if I did like it. An early birthday gift!
So what else could a girl possibly say to such a proposal but 'yes!'? We instantly grabbed up our keys and fled. Drove over the canyon and onto the dread freeway, then along to Victoria Gardens where the Apple Watch lay.

As we approached I could see numbers of people coming in and out of the iconic glass entryway of the Apple Store and - good grief! - the place was huge. Perfectly cavernous. The last time we had come, it had been a nice cozy sized room with normal sized tables containing all the latest gear. Now, it was at least four times its former size, and all abuzz. Apple people in their cool looking outfits, carrying their obligatory iPhones or pads or watches leaped to help us. We had to wait not even a half minute before someone was at eye level, ready to roll.
We had a 'try-on' appointment, so the Apple lady said something like, and which watch would you like to begin with? So I gazed.
Apple Watch case to drool over
In front of me was the case holding numerous Apple Watches in a variety of colors, materials, and sizes. I suppose it was a bit like a candy store, so colorful and attractive was it. I was soon drawn to the Apple Watch SPORT with its super cute soft bands in white, black, blue, green, and pink coral. She guided us to the secret drawer containing watches we could try on, and I started with a white. It was Gorgeous.
Here are just a few of the cool things an Apple Watch can do:
- send and receive Messages and emails
- receive and make hands-free phone calls (a'la Dick Tracy)
- ask Siri all sorts of interesting questions and be answered immediately
- get turn-by-turn directions to your destination
- pay for things at a cafe or store or anywhere else you choose
- watch your activity level, calorie count, distance walked, heart rate, etc
- listen to your music, your podcasts, in fact anything you wish to hear
One day the thing will be able to wash the clothes and do your taxes too. (Oh wait - it already does your taxes, right?)
I wonder when there will be an app for cleaning toilets. Until then, I say that technology has not gone nearly far enough.
See you along the way!
