August Bank holiday is now in old age a day to stay at home....I am not venturing forth today and nothing is better placed to make me all too aware of my age!

I have book marked today as the day I get to grips with the activity app on my apple watch!

I activated it yesterday in the late afternoon so obviously missed most of the goals set for me !

The one aim that I did manage to get was the standing one! I had after all presided at a service in the morning so that was standing all the way! At one point during the evening I felt a buzz on my wrist to tell me I had achieved one of my goals! This apparently is called a haptic! My vocabulary is enlarging daily!

The bit on the app that puzzles me is the calory count! How on earth can it know what I eating?

I am not intending to take any of this too seriously....allowing a mechanical process to take over my life is not a good thought...

It's a good way of spending a Bank holiday though...and by next week I hope to get my broadband back after the exodus.

Every day at present it takes up to half an hour to just get this blog posted on line....I leave it to itS own devices whilst I shower off we go...fingers crossed.....but don't tell the watch!




  1. No need to Jean. It already knows.

    1. We were writing at the exact same moment there!

  2. The watch does not need to be told tells me!
    I have always scorned these digital health bands as having nothing that I wanted or needed but I'm looking at them because it's there...right on my wrist! The tiny nudges are very weird indeed and I can just turn it all off it it gets too bossy but right now I am enjoying the technology. Yesterday's headlines about adding seven years onto our lives if we walk every day have left their mark but what I want to know is is it seven tears from now or have I already had most of my seven as I've always walked every day....only time will tell!

  3. I'm not sure that a watch nudging me every five minutes would be a good thing, particularly driving. I did run an electronic diary, but still rely on a paper one.

    Old fashioned it might be, but it works and doesn't need recharging.
