Ok. Here’s the thing. I’m a little late. It’s closer to 7 months now than 6, but after reviewing the aluminum at launch, checking out the gold steel and Nike+ a couple of weeks in, and following up with the Hermès some 2 months after, I got delayed slightly by some new iPads, AirPods, and, yeah, services.
But, I’ve been able to use the extra time to collect extra information, and from people beyond my own personal use cases and, frankly, the typical tech-sphere considerations.
I’ve also got to use the latest watchOS update, which adds ECG to Hong Kong and 19 countries across Europe, including France, Germany, Italy, Spain and the United Kingdom. Also, and more applicable to me, some new watch face variations for Nike and Hermes, and AirPods 2 support, which makes a great pairing even better. Like, I don’t know dark chocolate and crunchy peanut butter?
There are also new watch bands for the spring. This year’s collection includes new sport loops, new sport bands, new Hermès straps, new almost everything.
Let's take a look at all of that!
