A small update to my initial thoughts on the Apple Watch. The abysmal battery life and crashing apps problem appears to have been corrected after I rebooted the watch. After that it notified me that an update to WatchOS was available. I’m not sure if rebooting or the firmware update ultimately fixed the problem but things are working much better than they were.
Apply firmware updates to watches? The future is weird. But it’ll get a lot weirder when we have to apply firmware updates to our batteries.
