I'm going to be honest, the Apple Watch has always seemed really pointless to me unless you're into fitness and stuff like that, because of how well it integrates with the Health app on iOS, but all the other functions like replying to texts, answering calls etc all on your wrist just wasn't something I needed. However, I've recently been matched with my first guide dog, Iggy, we've just finished our training and I'm starting to get out and about more with her which is amazing! I started looking into a Bluetooth headset that was clear enough for me to use Google Maps with, so I can hear the directions in my ear without fiddling with wires, when one of my friends asked if the Apple Watch would be any good for that sort of thing.
I looked into it and had a listen to David's podcast on walking directions on the Apple Watch and it actually does sound quite cool. I really love how it tells you when to turn left and right etc, but then gives you the little ticks and vibration when you're more or less at the corner. So because of little things like that, do people find it easier to use than just using Apple Maps on your phone? And if it is better, how easy is it to use in general? I've felt one before and the screen felt far to small to me, but if i'm going to look into one, I might as well use the functions I previously thought I'd never need. After all, I'd rather not spend nearly £300 on something that I'm just gonna use for a Satnav :)
I've gone for the cheaper option for now and bought myself a £16 Bluetooth headset, but if the Apple Watch is good then I'll keep it in mind for the future.
