The Week in Review:  “Cleaning Out My Kindle Pt. 2” (August 2nd – August 8th)

Stacking the Shelves is a weekly meme hosted by Tynga’s Reviews. This meme gives bloggers a chance to share with readers what we bought, borrowed, swapped, won or received for review each week. I also decided that I would do a weekly recap, and link up with The Sunday Post, which is a weekly meme hosted by Kimba @ hosted by Caffeinated Book Reviewer, that was inspired in part by In My Mailbox. It’s a post to recap the past week, showcase books and things we have received and share news about what is coming up for the week on our blog.

Apple Watch Mini-Review

This slideshow requires JavaScript.

I bought an Apple Watch for myself as an early birthday present. I’m an Apple fanatic, so it wasn’t ever a question of if I was getting one, but when I was getting one. I liked it when I first saw it, but not enough that I had to wait in a long line to have it. So after my friend Susie was given one by her husband for Mother’s Day, and I got the chance to see it and play with it a bit, I decided to wait for my birthday. If I still wanted one I’d get it. If not, then I wouldn’t. With my 37th 25th birthday approaching on the 16th, my desire to get active again and lose weight + tech lust = me getting my watch. So what do I think after 3 weeks of using it?

Pros:

  • I like being reminded to keep moving thanks to the activity app. This is a plus as a blogger and teacher to not sit for too long.
  • It’s light weight and extremely comfortable.
  • It’s highly customizable. Not only can you change the watch face, but you can also remove the bands for different looks.
    • I bought the white Apple Watch Sport, and the Milanese Loop band to dress watch up for more formal occasions. The stainless steel mesh band actually looks really nice with the aluminum watch face.
  •   Having the map on wrist makes it easier, because you can keep eyes on the road instead of looking at your phone for next turn. Watch sounds and vibrates when it’s time for next turn.
  • Workout app is really great, and will help me train for my upcoming races.
    • I found out the hard way that watch doesn’t work with wrist tattoos. Heart rate monitor works well at resting rate, but tattoos interfere at active rate.

Cons:

      I just finished Armada, and it was amazing! I was worried it wouldn’t be as good as Ready Player One, but wow! Thanks for stopping by! Have a great week as well!

    • @Angelized_1st

      Yeah, something about the light on the heart rate monitor not being able to read through dark ink tattoos. Supposedly light colored don’t cause the same problem. Luckily I’m ambidextrous, so wearing it on my right wrist poses no problems. Shifter does look interesting. I can’t wait to read it. Thanks for the birthday wishes! Have a great week!
