How I’d Wear my Apple Watch #AppleWatch #AppleWatchEvent #Wearables

While I’d certainly love the bling of the gold $10K Edition version, I think if I had to realistically choose one, I’d go for the middle-of-the-road Apple Watch in the smaller screen size for my dainty lady-wrists. I imagine the experience to be similar to when we tried out the Moto 360 smart watch— convenient for many notifications and workouts, but still so early in the wearables-with-screens arena that other functions may be more novel than game-changing.

Seemingly small considerations like the spinning-crown navigation that doesn’t block the already-tiny screen with a finger and wifi capabilities that don’t limit it to only function within bluetooth range of your phone should make the experience that much more natural. Much like traditional watches, the two sizes offered (38mm and 42mm) and style options definitely invite the more fashion-forward crowd to this party.

I don’t expect we’ll be able to develop many DIY ‘tronix projects around the Apple Watch too soon, but hopefully with the help of the Bluefruit LE Connect iOS app we could one day see your IoT projects pushing Apple Watch sensor data to your Adafruit.io project. Here’s hoping! =]

What are you excited to do with Apple Watch? Let us know in the comments.


Make a robot friend with Adafruit’s CRICKIT – A Creative Robotics & Interactive Construction Kit. It’s an add-on to our popular Circuit Playground Express, FEATHER and other platforms to make and program robots with CircuitPython, MakeCode, and Arduino. Start controlling motors, servos, solenoids. You also get signal pins, capacitive touch sensors, a NeoPixel driver and amplified speaker output. It complements & extends your boards so you can still use all the goodies on the microcontroller, now you have a robotics playground as well.
