As I noted in a recent post, judging the Apple Watch before you take the time to try it can be a huge mistake. Following Apple’s unveiling, I wasn’t impressed at all with the device from a personal standpoint, though I obviously appreciated the implications. After using it, however, I did a complete 180; there’s no question that this is a nonessential device, obvious, but it’s a game-changer that finally makes the smartwatch category matter.

Looking for a second opinion? Well, look no further.

DON’T MISS: I really wanted to hate the Apple Watch

Fast Company’s Harry McCracken has a respected voice when it comes to covering the tech industry, and he recently penned a piece covering 21 things that people either won’t know or won’t truly appreciate about the Apple Watch until they strap one on and use it.

McCracken’s post is split into two main sections: the good and the bad.

In the good section, he notes that the hardware’s fit and finish are fantastic. McCracken also says the size of the two Apple Watch models are ideal, the displays are gorgeous and the Apple Pay experience is great.

On the flip side of the coin, he says the device seems to lag at times, and it seems to be a bit buggy.

The post is filled with interesting observations, and it’s linked below in our source section.
