It's the little things
I've been waiting for magic moments, which I experienced immediately with the iPhone and iPad: a sense that this device did something both unexpected and transcendent that I hadn't seen or felt before. The Watch is not transcendent, although some people keep telling me to approach it like a vision quest. However, I am starting to get the tickle of these moments.
When a text comes in from my wife, and I naturally — without thinking about it! — lift my arm, see her name, and pause, feeling like I'm using ESP to reveal the message, which appears a moment later. When a timer goes off, and I think, oh, having that on my wrist is useful. When I pick and change podcasts from the Overcast Watch app, or use the Remote app to pause my Apple TV. The magic is growing on me; it just didn't explode outward in a cloud. — Glenn Fleishman
