I finally got my hands on an Apple Watch this weekend! I've been waiting for this since it was announced, mostly for the promise of the workout features. My 2+ year old MOTOACTV watch is finally starting to show it's age - although I still feel it's one of the best running watches on the market as it combines GPS, bluetooth, wi-fi syncing, and a color screen all in one. Oddly, almost no other running watches offer that.
My first run with the Apple Watch was nothing short of a disaster. Perhaps I have it misconfigured, but the three most common actions for me (starting/stopping at an intersection, changing audio playback, and seeing my workout metrics) were all HUGE usability nightmares. More coming soon, but suffice it to say that for a company that prides itself in design and has marketed this watch as a fitness device, my first impressions were very disappointing.
