People that have worn the Watch say that they take their phones
out of their pockets far, far less than they used to. A simple tap
to reply or glance on the wrist or dictation is a massively
different interaction model than pulling out an iPhone, unlocking
it and being pulled into its merciless vortex of attention suck.
One user told me that they nearly “stopped” using their phone
during the day; they used to have it out and now they don’t,
period. That’s insane when you think about how much the blue glow
of smartphone screens has dominated our social interactions over
the past decade.
Great piece. I’ve been hearing similar things about Watch wearers using their iPhones far fewer times per day.
