My Apple Watch just arrived this week and I have completed setup with a personal Apple assistant (nice touch Apple). I’ll need to practice but I’ve already made and received texts on it, a phone call, snapped a photo remotely with my iPhone and set up my activity goals. I already got reminded to stand and walk around for a minute.
My first big test of the Watch will be on the road next week to Milan, Italy and Expo Milano with New Holland!
Will this find a place in field scouting, planting, harvest, farm management? Time will tell but as we know there is at least one company already working on it.
My first impressions include:
- My sport model and band feel very comfortable. The larger size is just right IMO.
- Set up was easy and initial syncing with all my apps was fast. Quite a few already have Watch versions.
- Notifications and Calendar integration is going to be very helpful.
- I like being able to put both my Watch & iPhone in Airplane mode just from the Watch.
That’s a quick look at the ZimmWatch. After traveling with it I will certainly be writing more.
