I’m an Apple fan. Unabashedly so. I have an iPhone, a MacBook, and a MacBook Pro. I actually watch Apple product announcements.
I am not a blind follower. While I am a big fan of many Apple products, I am not loyal without question. I have a Google Chromecast because I didn’t want my entertainment options to be tied to iTunes. I use Pro Tools instead of Logic Pro X. I use Aperture, but I also use Photoshop. You get the idea.
So when my initial enthusiasm about the Apple Watch collided with reality — a wrist-worn extension of my iPhone, with limited practical value, and prices ranging from $550 to more than $1,000 (for a stainless steel case), I found myself searching for something better. I set out to find a watch that:
- was engineered to provide practical fitness tracking;
- didn’t need to be charged daily, or even every two or three days;
- could withstand a dip in the pool;
- wouldn’t be scratched by a careless knock against something;
- looked good in the gym, and sharp in the boardroom;
- operated independent of my iPhone and offered unique features that improved my life, rather than distracted me from it.
My search led me to the Wellograph Wellness Watch.
