My Birthday Present
I bought myself my amazing husband🤣 bought me an Apple Watch at Costco for I believe it was $345, or very close to that. It was the latest model not with a phone service just WiFi. I work from home so that was plenty for me. 😊(Boy…Was I happy)
If anyone knows anything about me it’s that I am a 100% complete nerd. Not just a “lover of books” nerd, but A “gadgety nerd” too! 🤓 When the computer needs tweaking or we’re setting up new electronics in the house… I’m that guy! 😎
What I was super excited for in this Watch? I wanted the big screen, to get text and notifications from parents while my hands are full working our preschool. And it worked awesome! For 7 months.
Last week while on vacation it quit working.😩I didn’t drop it, or remember anything happening to it and it looks absolutely normal.
Forward to Today
An awesome book blogger pal Jennifer, (she writes the most amazing book reviews) suggested I take it to an Apple Store since Costco only takes returns on them for 90 days. 😃I got excited! I don’t know why I didn’t think of that! By the way if you like book blogs check out hers! They are amazing and super classy! So ya… back to my Apple story…
Ryan takes it in for me.
Apperently their is a slight crack along the side of the screen, you can’t even see it, but you can barely feel it.😕 So I needed a new screen. Guess how much… $299!🤨
I’m Not Super Smart, But I’m not THAT dumb either!
Not for a second did I even consider repairing the screen for $300! Two other options sound much more appealing…
- I could go into Costco and buy the same exact thing brand new for $45 more. With a new battery and everything!
- I could go back to a Fitbit, and get a Fitbit Versa that has roughly the same size screen and gets phone notifications too for $199. 🤔 And if this breaks I can replace it for still no more than $199.
Don’t make my mistake
I share this story with you all so you don’t get sucked into an Apple Watch like I did. And trust me, I love Apple products! The other thing about a Fitbit vs an Apple Watch, I missed my Fitbit buddies to keep me motivated.
Ok, so that’s my rant for today.. Prime Day hopefully will give me a good deal because I have no idea how many steps I’ve been walking and it’s driving me crazy!🤪
Wednesday is date night! Woohoo! Have a great night friends…
