Yesterday the girls played with frogs out in the neighborhood. If you asked the frogs, who were quite worn out at the end of the session, this would not be a good subject for macro photography. I brought out my Panasonic GX8 with 10mm macro extension tube and 14-140mm lens and shot video for about 20 minutes. Most of the footage is blurred by focus and/or motion but there were a few good clips and several good frames. You can have the frames now and I will post the clips on YouTube later, so go and subscribe to my YouTube channel today.
The watch seemed dead. No plug-me-in screen appeared. The display was blank and my phone couldn’t connect to the watch. I left it on the charger overnight and although it felt warm when I checked it in the morning, it was still blank and unresponsive.
For some reason I wore the watch anyway. Maybe I would drop by the Apple store but probably not.
A few hours into the day, someone asked me about my watch. “I think it’s dead,” I said as I raised my wrist and pressed the buttons, “see anything?”
“Yeah, the plug-me-in screen.”
So now it’s fine.
What this episode showed me was how much and how little I missed my watch. My awareness of the correct time was somewhat decreased. I missed a few notifications. I had forgotten how my phone used to do these things for me.
Because I don’t rely on my watch for much more than time, weather, fitness and notifications, living without it was not hard.
Still, I’m glad it’s back.
