Hi everyone, I hope you've all had a great Christmas and are enjoying this lovely relaxing time leading up to the excitement of New Year.
I was lucky enough to receive a ZenWatch from my husband for Christmas and I thought I would share some of my thoughts so far.
First things first, the styling! I had seen a few photos and videos on YouTube but wasn't prepared for how great this watch looks and feels in the flesh. The silver and rose gold face, coupled with the tan leather strap ooze quality and the shape of the body sits comfortably on my wrist. I was really worried that it would look over-sized and masculine but although it's definitely the biggest watch I have ever worn, I don't think it looks silly considering its functionality. In fact after using it for a few days, I'm not sure I would want the screen to be any smaller. (I have included a photo below showing the ZenWatch next to my 'regular' watch, as well as my husbands Moto 360 for comparison).
Another concern I had was whether the battery would last a full day, knowing that I would have a steady stream of Whatsapp, Facebook and Gmail notifications coming in. It turns out there was no need to worry because I just charge it in the cradle overnight, exactly as I do with my phone. Attaching the watch to the wired charging cradle is more hassle than say the wireless charging of the Moto 360 but less fiddly than I had expected. One firm press and it's in the correct position to charge.
I know it won't be every fashionista's cup of tea but if you want to embrace the girl geek in you but don't want to look like you've got a calculator strapped to your arm, you can't go far wrong with this little number in my opinion.
