My friend Eve posted this last week on Facebook:
Happy iWatch story! On July 20th I lost my watch swimming in the sea. I loved that thing, it tracked my swims! David tried to find it but no luck. After days of searching with friends we gave up and this morning we didn’t even try.
It was 5 days lost and we really thought it was gone for good. Then by chance, David walked by a teenager saying he found something orange in the sea and he was going to report it lost. Believe it or not… it was my watch!!! And what’s more amazing is that it is still working!!!
My take: This isn't the first item I've posted about an Apple Watch that took a licking and kept on ticking. Over the years, I've given you stories about Apple products dropped from planes, lost in rivers, found in manholes, retrieved from vault toilets, washed up on beaches and I can't remember what else. But this is the first lost-and-found story from someone I know and love. Haven't seen much of Eve since she moved from New York to Hong Kong. Nice to hear from her, especially with a happy-ending story. From her friends' comments:
- That’s crazy karma!!!
- Amazing! And good marketing for the watch! What brand is it?
- Did you get any interesting metrics from its 5 days at sea?
