Bob Lefsetz Versus The Apple Watch: Finale?



I’m returning mine. It’s too soon, if ever.

They assume you’re constantly vertical. Just try checking the time if you’re lying down.

And you can’t read the face in sunlight and if you’re over forty, good luck seeing the screen.

The Apple Watch must be bigger and display the time at all times. The rest of the complaints are secondary, about speed and charging. You’ve got to perform the core functions perfectly, otherwise people don’t care. Notice they didn’t state how many watches have been sold. Now that they’re just about caught up with back orders you’re gonna start seeing stories about what a failure the Watch is. You’ll be able to buy one instantly and the only people testifying paid for it. And I haven’t seen any celebrities wearing them recently…

The new Google Glass?

Looks like it!


Let’s see how the Pebble Time — with its always-on screen — does in comparison. I still have no reason to own any.
