So my Apple Watch is now gone for good.

I don't think that people should be *that* connected, that trackable, or forced to be hostage to every push notification that comes through.

Yes you can try "Do Not Disturb".

Yes you can selectively turn off notifications.

It's not granular enough, though. It's still painful. It can't learn useful patterns, it doesn't organically alter your notification types by geofencing or time of day, or type of app. Maybe I don't want all notifications for Instagram, but I want notifications for specific user. etc etc

This data is not enriching your lives. You don't need to know how many steps you take or what your heart rate is (unless you have a medical condition). You don't need to know how many miles you ran in your exercise.

You are paying to generate worthless data that you think is clever and enriching your life, but it's not.

The Apple Watch did one thing that I didn't expect: made me love watches again, which I haven't cared about since I got my first smartphone.

We are on the brink of a Notifications fatigue. We had this in the past, and it was with email.

Remember spending so much of your day dealing with email? The tedious, monotonous, worthless time you spent obsessing over your inboxes? That's what we're doing with notifications, except it's tricking us to respond to shitposts at lightning speed and start fights and amp up our anxiety to 11 all day long.

We can do better.
