Apple Watch Mickey Mouse Face

Happy Friday, and one week since the launch of the watch.  I am a huge fan of everything Disney.  I go to Disneyland a few times a year.  I have had an annual pass there for years.  I will be going back next month and will use my watch with apple pay.  I will post pictures of how it works.  Since I’m such a fan of Disney, I figured I should start with the Mickey Mouse watch face and see how it goes.  I have given it a week and have really liked the face.  It has been different moving back to an analog face since I’ve been used to the digital time on my phone.  I love Mickey’s tapping foot as the second hand.  I think it is really fun.  I stumbled across an article saying that if you line up apple watches, they will all tap at the same time.  When I went into the apple store to try on my watch, I lined up two apple watch display models and v

erified the tapping foot.  One feature of the face that I really like is that between 6-12, Mickey’s head faces left but between 12-6 it faces right.  Its nice that his head moves so that it looks a little less painful for Mickey when he is giving me the time.  I am impressed by the little details that make the experience that much more pleasant for the end user.  I have posted the images below :). IMG_3567 IMG_3552

Running with Apple Watch

Today I went running with the apple watch.  I used the activity app and thought it was a good experience.  I went this morning for 35 minutes.  I found that the activity app reads my heartbeat every 5 seconds when using the app and every 10 minutes normally.  After the run, my battery life was 93 percent on my watch (I have the screen brightness set on medium).  I was impressed with the app.  I have always used the Nike+GPS app.  I will give that one a try on Monday and compare the two.



Apple Watch on Launch Day!

My apple watch came in today!  I have enjoyed playing with it so far.  I’m sure as I use it for the next few days, I will have more impressions of the watch but as of right now, I really enjoy it.  The interface is a bit different than the iPhone and the side button will take some getting used to.  I have been impressed with its capabilities.  Tonight, I tested listening to music on my wireless beats (paired to my iPhone) while controlling the music with my watch.  I also was able to control my Apple TV using the remote app on the watch while listening to the my beats.  I have multiple Apple TVs and I like how easy it is to switch between them in the app on the remote.  Here is me pulling it out of the box.  (The box is a nice plastic box and velvet lined.



When pairing it, the setup is on the phone.  I love the logo they display.



Here is a picture of my watch tonight as I go to bed.




I am excited to take it out for a run tomorrow 🙂
