Six years ago, Sharon bought me an Apple Watch for Father's Day. Although I had never worn a watch before, it quickly become a key part of my life. I am literally never without it.
I upgraded to a Series 3 four years ago and to a Series 5 two years ago.
Last Thursday while we were in Hawaii, my watch started acting flaky. It kept trying to turn itself off and the buttons were inconsistent. I wore it on Friday and Saturday, but it was almost useless. The experience reenforced how much the watch is part of my everyday workflows, including tracking exercise, sleep and health. It is a window into my phone for text messages, emails and other notifications.
Late Saturday night after we got home, I ordered an Apple Watch Series 7. I was delivered about noon on Sunday.
