Casey Chan spent 10 months wearing an Apple Watch—a time he describes as “god-awful.” In an article for Gizmodo, he concludes that Apple’s wrist computer is painfully slow, confusing, uncomfortable, and not especially useful.
With other Apple products, you realize the limitations but become mostly okay with them because the ease of use can outweigh the sacrifice….

There’s really not a single thing that makes my life easier.
In fact, Chan’s time with the Apple Watch led him to a rather zen realization: “the Watch’s constant low-level notifications made me realize that there’s nothing really worth being notified about.” Read Chan’s review here.
