Falling Backwards

I have two straps for my Apple Watch. To make sure I get the best use out of them, I change them every time we have to wind our clocks either backwards or forwards.

This evening, I would have reverted the watch from its sporty - Nike - look I use over the spring and summer months into the blue/orange colour I have during the autumn and winter periods.

I can't do that tonight.

You see - as unfortunate luck would have it - my watch broke yesterday.

I don't know exactly what happened to it. However, I did realise I bumped it against the door handle when I was walking through my hallway, from the kitchen, on Thursday night. Once I had done that, I checked to see if it was okay and it seemed fine.

Then - when I was walking upstairs from my shower yesterday morning - I noticed the screen was black. The battery had ran out. Or so I thought. I put the watch on its charger. Eventually, I realised it wasn't charging and - on top of that - was heating up.

I had a few things pop up on the screen that I hadn't seen before like a thermometer. I looked it up and it's a warning to say the watch was overheating and it would automatically shutdown. 

When I was studying the watch a little more closely, I noticed that it had scratches. The door handle had shattered it after all.

I've tried and tried to bring the thing back to life, but to no avail.

I'm obviously gutted about losing the watch. It had a bit of sentimental value to me because I purchased it with the winnings from a 40/1 WWE bet I placed on the Ladbrokes website for WrestleMania 33 in 2017. The winner resulted in Ladbrokes stopping me from wagering with the firm again. I would sometimes find myself wondering about the saps at Ladbrokes when I'd use the watch.

The biggest kick in the teeth, however, was the fact that my move streak ended yesterday. It had recorded me for 1,047 days. 

I will get another Apple Watch. I don't know when, but I am in the early planning stages - there are far too many of them out there now compared to 2017. 

Until then - it's back to my Casio AE-3000W-1AVEF.

If I can find it.
