What wearable technology do you use?
I have recently found myself in the position where I am wearing a ‘smart watch’ that can do somethings, but it isn’t as good as my phone. I am on the fence about this smart watch, but I do like the fact that it does count the number of steps that I take as I don’t always have my phone on me. I do not know how useful knowing the number of steps that I have taken actually is but I am more aware of it now. I can’t type messages, but I can receive some. I am not sure about phone calls because I haven’t received any phone calls yet.
Who uses their phone for the original purpose that it is intended for?
The phone has other features but really the only thing that I like about it, is that it can tell me the number of steps that I am taking.
There are so many things that you can get to do this that are not a watch. It is funny how we fool ourselves into thinking that we need something that we really don’t or that it really does matter, or we really need to know how many steps that are taking. At the end of the day, it doesn’t affect or change what we are going to be doing in our lives.
Sometimes I feel that we are just so much into our technology that we forget what really is in front of us. There are more important things in life then screens.
Fitness is a great thing to be focused on and to know how many steps or beats per minute your heart is making is very useful but is there more useful things that you could be focused on?
If you are taking the right steps towards heath and you don’t let it consume you then yes, I do feel like it is ok just as long as you don’t let it get overboard.
We don’t wear our phones like you would a watch and not everyone has a clip for their phone so it can be attached to your belt but our phones I feel if not directly in front of our faces is usually on our person.
Do you have a smart watch? How useful do you think that it is? Would you recommend it to someone else? How much did you pay for it? Did you shop around for it? Would you get a replacement watch if yours broke? What other technology do you wear that isn’t a watch?
