Podcast: Reviewing the Apple Watch on performance, not potential

apple watch mickey mouse

Hopefully you aren’t sick of hearing about the Apple Watch just yet, because it’s still top of mind for your faithful podcast crew. Susie’s review went live this week, so she, Glenn, and Caitlin discuss the difficulty in giving a score to something so first-generation, especially since more killer uses for the Apple Watch will emerge over time—and vary widely from user to user. There’s plenty we like about the Apple Watch right now, and a few things that drive us all batty. And of course we’re all looking forward to the third-party watch bands, now that Apple has released guidelines for the companies who want to make them.
