The time is finally here. There were a few things I wasn’t terribly excited about when I ordered the Apple Watch. One being the color, second being the size. To my surprise, after the unboxing, I have no complaints.
The first thing you notice when your Apple Watch arrives, if you ordered it, is the shape and size of the box. This box of course houses the Apple Watch inside of a plastic case, the charging cable, the power adapter, and the extra M/L band size.
I was actually pretty impressed with the packaging and how it all came together. One thing that kind of stood out to me was the way that they presented the M/L band. It didn’t feel Apple-esque. The packaging for the band wasn’t symmetrical, not much detail, and just kind of altogether wasn’t very impressive. Now in reality, this isn’t an issue to me whatsoever, I’m just usually impressed with the way Apple does things and this particular piece fell a little short.
Otherwise, all of the packaging was great and the watch was even better. The quality of the band was much different than I anticipated. It had some weight to it and it felt very premium. The M/L band was definitely nice since my wrist barely fit the last hole in the S/M band.
My initial choice was the Apple Watch Sport, Space Gray 42mm, but as some of you know, that seems to be everyone choice. So I still have awhile until that one arrives. But the white, Aluminum, 38mm Apple Watch Sport really did impress me. I thought it would be a little more on the feminine side, but I can totally see myself wearing this thing around. It looks great on your wrist and white matches pretty much everything.
I booted up the device, but didn’t do too much else just yet because my daily driver (iPhone 6 Plus) is jailbroken, so therefore since it’s not on iOS 8.2+, I can’t sync it with my Apple Watch. So there’s still some more discovering to do on my part.
