Apple Watch Series 3 review

Apple, Blogroll, Tech Toys No Comments »

When the Apple Watch came out a few years ago, I refused to buy into the hype that this was a “must have” device.  I was completely satisfied with my iPhone to check my iMessages, e-mails, and run my apps.  Furthermore, I’m a traditionalist in using a watch just as a time/date piece and that’s it.  A normal watch won’t run out of charge and it won’t be obsolete in 2-3 years.  As of 2017, Apple released Apple Watch Series 3, which was the first Apple Watch that was able to use completely without your iPhone, including making calls.  I finally bought into the “hype”.  Read more to find out why.

After dumping my Palm Treo 700w, which I had used during my previous 2-year contract with Verizon Wireless, I’ve moved onto bigger (or smaller?) and better things. The two phones that I’m using now are the BlackBerry Pearl 8130 (when I’m USA) and the HTC Touch P3450 (during my visits to China). To get an idea of the relative sizes of the two phones, the above picture shows that the Touch is slightly wider than the Pearl, but the Pearl is a little longer than the Touch. In terms of thickness, the two phones are about the same, but since I use a silicon rubber case on my Pearl, it is slightly thicker.
