The Apple Watch may be the stepchild of the tech giant’s product suite.
While iPhones seem ubiquitous in cities like San Francisco and New York City, their sibling, the Apple Watch, never took off outside Apple fanboys and girls and startup employees. It’s essentially a mini computer strapped across your wrist, which leaves some consumers asking, “Why do I need a device that does things my phone can do — just not as well?”
The company sold 1.1 million Apple Watches in the third quarter of 2016, down from 3.9 million a year earlier, and its lion’s share of the smartwatch market is starting to slip.
I got an Apple Watch Series 2 soon after it was released in September. Here’s what my experience has been like.
