The three colored rings on my watch determined my schedule, guiding my day and consuming my attention. As the month drew to a close, I reached a troubling realization: my watch owned me.

Despite achieving my fitness targets, I felt a sense of discomfort within, acknowledging that I had allowed technology to govern my emotions and well-being.

As I look ahead to May, I plan to redefine my fitness objectives…And perhaps it’s time to say goodbye to my Apple Watch.
