Why I Decided To Go With The Apple Watch Sport?

Long before the official Apple Watch announcement from Apple I knew I wanted one.

I had even put off getting a Garmin Forerunner and Fitbit as I really wanted something from Apple. I knew it will be something so much better and elegant.

When the official announcement was mad I immediately knew witch one I was going to buy as soon as they were available.

I decided I was going to get the Apple Watch Sport edition in Space Grey and in the 42mm size.


This are the five reason I decided to go with the Sport:

First Generation:

This been the first generation I know for sure I will upgrade immediately to the second generation as soon as it comes out. That second generation I may keep for a longer time. This is based on my first generation purchase of the MacBook Air and iPad.


Since I already mention that I will only keep this version until the second gen comes out it just make sense to go with the lowest priced one at just $399.

Main usage:

One and probably the main uses I have for the Apple Watch it's as a fitness and health companion and since the Sport is the least heavy of the 3 versions it will be perfect for my runs.

42mm Size:

I decided to go with the 42mm for two reasons. One the battery its a bit better on the 42mm than on the 38mm and because I fear the 38mm will be just two small for me.

Space Gray Finish:

This one was a bit tougher as both finish look amazing but at the end I just liked the Space Gray a bit more and I did not liked any of the colored Sport bands.

Next Best Choice

My other choice was the Black Steel version since I do not like the shiny finish on the regular Steel. But the Black version only comes with the Steel bracelet and at over $1000 it was super easy to go with the Sport. Maybe by gen 2 I will go with a Steel version.
