Previously, on Living With ... back when the Apple Watch was in that limbo stage between being a rumor and being announced, we didn't think about the bands one might have for it any more than anyone else did. Then, during that launch when we pretended to concentrate on technical specifications and were secretly just waiting for the price, we only gave watch straps the briefest of attention. We were not going to buy a Nomad Strap for Apple Watch, we just weren't.
I'm in Hazelwood Castle, Leeds, in the UK and of course I got here by booking online, of course I kept those details in TripIt and of course I have my Apple Watch charging on the Nomad Pod Pro travelling stand. This is just how it goes now: each part of this is as inevitable as packing a bag or deciding between bringing my iPad Air or iPad Pro. Except, I always bring both of those and my opinions haven't only changed about the Nomad Pod Pro, they've changed back again.
Seriously, we were chiefly focused on buying -- and affording -- the Apple Watch when we got it, so the idea of a special strap went straight out of the question. The only thing that went out of discussion faster was the idea of buying the $10,000 one. Like practically everyone else in the world, we bought the cheapest Sports model, and we accepted that we were going to get a cheap strap. Then we found that the standard strap is remarkably good, and all conception of ever replacing it later vanished for eight months. Now the Nomad Strap has changed that.
If you don't have an Apple Watch, you may feel that Christmas has already come for people who do -- and you've got a point there. If you do have an Apple Watch, though, you tend to adore it, and there can't be anything better for inserting yourself into a loved one's life and/or attention span than by giving them something to make the Watch even better. It can be done. It can. It's just not easy.
