Apple Watch - Fitness

Key Feature

I'm not an early adopter; I usually wait for the second generation product. I want the company to work the kinks out. Hence, my circumstance with my Series 2 Apple Watch, my first Apple Watch. I could tell you all of the wonderful things of which this little gadget is capable (and perhaps I will another time), but for now I want to focus on one singularly distinctive feature.

Activity

Activity encapsulates your day's activities in wonderful little concentric rings. At the beginning of the day one starts with a blank slate. The rings grow in length throughout the day based on preset goals established by the user.

Incentive

One literally closes the loops while working toward achieving the day's goals. As a former user of a different exercise tracking band I can say the visual cues are a superior incentive. The watch also reminds one to stand after a sedentary period.

Synopsis

The myriad of uses make the watch beneficial, but incentivized fitness along with statistical analysis and progress make the watch a useful fitness tool.

Perspective Changes Everything

Many people move along through life missing the wonder of our world. One need only stop for a few moments to see something amazing. Take this little patch of mushroom for example. They're tiny. The entire patch takes up little space. Now, what happens when we stop for a minute and change our perspective.

When observed differently, the little patch takes up much more space. One sees the intricacy of the tiny towers.

Life is like that. We may see something small and think it's no big deal, but we later realize it was a bigger deal than we thought. Conversely, we might think something is a huge deal, but come-to-find-out it was really just a tiny issue.

When something bothers you take a step back. It might be a smaller problem than you think.
