I’ve been drawing confused looks from friends and colleagues, because I’ve not been wearing my Apple Watch this week. Funny how a piece of technology can become a part of what people expect of you. Granted, it’s quite a stunning piece of tech, black steel and black steel links.

The one I’m wearing is still somewhat smart, it’s the Kronaby Apex Steel, which I’ve mentioned before. Kronaby calls it a hybrid smartwatch, which is about right. Much less obtrusive, still gives me the most important notifications, and so forth. We’ll see how this goes.
