Running my First 24 Hours with the Apple Watch Sport

After the Apple Unboxing experience, I changed the Sport Band to the S/M size because I have a small wrist and then had the Watch charged overnight. It was 4:00am when the Watch was at 100% after 1.5-2 hours of charging time. Before I left the house, I checked first if the apps that I needed were all loaded on the Watch.

As for the size, I prefer the larger one to make sure that I won’t be missing any experience. I’m on the lookout now though for a 42mm black sport band but I doubt if the Apple Watch and accessories will reach the local stores anytime soon. Continue reading
