Why needs a smart watch/activity tracker?

Having a break time now, I’m thinking about smartwatch or fitness tracker. They are getting popular now since everyone easily has Xiaomi Band, Apple Watch, Misfit. I call them “toy” in this post.

For me, it’s just a toy and not necessary … at all , compared to other classic and simple watch.

Why need to to spend more money to buy them?

  • Check the time: ….. use the classic one, you don’t have to charge for years. You have to charge your “toy” every night, every week, every month, every quarter… No sense.
  • To track our sleep: Bullshit, do you really check how did you sleep last night Seriously. You trust the watch more than your own feeling? And the truth… do you wake up and check your “toy” every morning? I say EVERY morning. No! you don’t. even every Week. You only check sleep quality when you just have your “toy”
  • To count my step and calories: Bullshit! Same above words. your toy calculate the figures correctly? and do you even check them on your toy everyone. Friend! It’s all about taking exercise, taking action! not about looking at non sense number!
  • To call/listen to music/read message/get direction: Oh, you can do them all with your smartphone. One smartphone is enough to get you busy. your Toy is just making you more busy and tired.

The only reason I can understand is to look fancy, stylish or different. If you buy them with that purpose, I agree, as long as you have money and you like it. But consider well if you think it will make your life more efficient, save time and stay healthy. Actually it doesn’t.

(If you say “shut up! you don’t have one so you don’t know anything”, sorry I have the very first activity tracker called Nike wristband. I liked it, crazy about it then I left it in a corner and end up selling it to someone.

But I don’t mind if you buy me one on my coming birthday. lol It’s free. Why not?

P/s: I like Apple Watch btw)

Apple just released a great new Macbook and costly Apple Watch!

I’m impressed and attracted to the design philosophy and also how “smart” and beautiful Apple devices are. With the new release today for the new Macbook and Apple Watch.

For me, the new Macbook is really stunning for its thinnest, lightest, redesigned keyboard and appearance, longer battery, and especially for its Retina Display.

But the Apple Watch is totally wasting-money watch. Some reasons:

– It works along with iPhone. With a tiny screen, how it could be comfortable to read news, check things while you have to bring your iPhone along.

– The most terrible thing: The battery just lasts until 18 hours so you have to charge not only your iPhone but also Apple Watch everyday. I used to use Nike fuel band, its battery lasts for about 3-4 days but charging it often just makes my life waste more time and complicated.

– Waste more time and make your life more complicated. Yes, I just said it. People nowadays is being disturbed and “robotted” when they keep checking their Facebook, reading news, doing stuffs on their smartphone every minute. Get on a bus or metro/subway and see. So having more a “smart” watch, I feel it won’t help your life better and more convenient, just make your life more isolated.

– Finally, for me, somehow Apple Watch is just a playing-around and showing-off stuff. And the new Macbook completely got my attention.
