I sold my Apple Watch yesterday. That was more difficult that I thought it would be. I don’t know if it’s that we tend to bond more with wearable things or if it was the cost of the item. I hadn’t worn it since I got my Garmin watch, and I longer saw a need for it. I love the style and functionality of my Gamin watch. It does more than just GPS track my activities, but it is genuinely functional, and stylish.
I’ll give it some time, but I’m sure the feeling of regret will dissipate much the same way that the initial high of buying something new does as soon as you walk out of the store.
I honestly hadn’t though much about it until DayOne popped up and asked me to write something down. The exception is that this morning it wasn’t sitting on my dresser where it had been for the last year. I think the smarter thing to do would have been to remove it from my dresser when I bought the new watch. If I wasn’t forced to see my shiny, lonely Apple Watch sitting there every morning when I woke up and every night when I went to sleep, I probably wouldn’t feel bad at all about it not being there now.
The important thing is that someone is enjoying it. It’s purpose wasn’t to be a dresser decoration.
