This is pretty much why I have little desire for an Apple Watch. Mel is more patient than I am. The lighting up while eating, the notification madness, the constant charging: none of that sounds fun.
From my very first look at the Apple Watch previews, I couldn’t believe how much junk they were putting on it. I really think putting full featured apps on it was a mistake. I understand it being a notifications center (if notifications can be tamed, especially), but full on apps? Ugh.
The Pebble looks way more attractive to me, at least while the Apple Watch is first generation.
