Apple was also able to convince me as a watch lover. In April 2015 I received the Apple Watch “Series 0” in stainless steel and with the stainless steel link bracelet. I haven’t worn any other watches since then. Admittedly, in the meantime I wanted a more traditional, mechanical watch, but I quickly dismissed the idea because I would miss the practical possibilities of the watch too much. I am far from using all of the given functions.
Right from the start, I wore the watch every day and, with a few exceptions, charged it exactly every two days. The battery has kept this cycle up to this day, even if slight losses in capacity have become noticeable. On the software side, the first generations have not been supported for a while, i.e. current watchOS 7 versions can no longer be installed. The last update was with version 4.3.2. However, that did not detract from the function of the watch. Only newer functions, some of which also require more modern hardware, are no longer supported.
The individual features of the following model generations did not seem attractive enough to me to justify a new purchase. In principle, this also applied to the current Series 6, but the sum of all the new options and what I consider to be the very attractive “Edition Titanium” made me buy a new one. I decided on the “Edition Titanium“In 44 mm with a leather strap in” Baltic Blue “. I like the color and as a Baltic Sea resident it also seemed appropriate to me. In addition, I decided to add a braided one for more variety Solo loop bracelet in “Inverness green”. (40-mm-braided-solo-loop-inverness green-size-1)
The delivery of the watch took an unusually long month after ordering at the beginning of October. The braided solo loop bracelet took an even longer two weeks.
