Like the original iPhone, the watch also feels like a physical compromise. The case is bigger and bulkier than the ideal device you would want to strap to your wrist. And while battery life is amazing for a device this small — routinely almost 24 hours on a single charge — it still requires that I remember to pop the watch onto a charger every night.
And yet, after almost eight months, the Apple Watch feels like the future to me.
Probably the best description of the usefulness of the Apple Watch that a non-technical person could understand.
