Why Not Ceramic?

Apple announced free replacement (recall?) for Apple Watch Aluminum Version for Series 2 and 3 due to a defect surface glass – possibilities of cracks.

On Monday (only two days ago), I sent my Apple Watch for repair and caused me about JPY 10,000 (USD 100) because the surface glass came off….

Driving to Hayama, Kanagawa on Sunday

My car is going to be 16 years old in October 2019.

It is recommended to improve safety of the car and install a drive recorder to protect myself from dangerous drivings.

It’s time for me to get a new car and expected it to be delivered end of August.

I love my car; I’ve been driving it for nearly 16 years.

I decided to go for a drive to Hayama, Kanagawa.

It takes 60 km or one hour to reach Hayama from Tokyo.

I had a nice late lunch at ESMERALDA together with Choco.

The restaurant is located near beach.

There are many people swimming there.

Food is delicious.

I guess it’s peach season; these are peach menu.

Of course, dessert.

The place is famous for Hayama Marina, a boat house.

It was a nice driving day.

By the time we returned to Tokyo, it was dinner time.

We decided to go for light dinner, but ended up eating well because food is good.

This is my first time to dine at Osteria Nakamura Roppongi.

They are thoughtful; they served by two plates to avoid our works to share among us.

Foods are good.

Drinks are good.

And desserts are good.

I wonder when would I lose weight…?

Apple Support Chat

My iPhone suddenly got broken.

The alarm was silent and thanks to Choco, he woke me up because he wanted to go for a walk.

Though Choco did a good deed, I had to cut his walk to get ready for work.

He looked very disappointed.

I compensated by taking him extra long walk at night.

Well, there was something wrong with a speaker.

My iPhone didn’t play music but making noise when I press the side button.

I thought Apple Support on call is only available after 10 am; then I received a message that Apple Support Chat is available while browsing for the contact number.

I thought I would talk with AI, but the conversation was smooth.

(Later, I found that it was not AI but a human.)

I started chatting.

It concluded I am required to go to Apple Store to get it check-up.

I even made a reservation at Genius Bar, Apple Store Ginza at 11:50 am via chat.

My boss was scheduled to leave office to attend a meeting in Yokohama at 11 am and I could use my lunch hour.

It was perfect.

Based on our chat history, it didn’t take much time to diagnosis my iPhone.

The body/hardware and software didn’t have any problem but we could still hear noise.

With further checking, the technician identified the problem around the SIM card.

I had to change the body and I received a used new iPhone on the spot.

It took hours to recover my setting, but to diagnosis and to receive a replace phone was fast.

Apple Support Chat is not bad.

I could quietly chat and to make a reservation at Genius Bar quietly while working. hahaha

Scale for FiNC

I bought a scale designed for FiNC at FiNC Mall.

This scale would be connected to FiNC app via Bluetooth to record more than ten (10) elements such as weight, BMI, fat, body age, etc.

It saves me from typing manually and I can obtain more information about my body.

Choco, it’s not for you. hahaha

FiNC

I tried this diet and fitness app for two weeks.

I record weight, food/calories, steps and sleeping hours.

I can obtain information on exercise, food, life style, products, supplements, events, etc.

AI checks on me when I forget to record.

AI suggests based on my record and pattern.

I’m having conversation with AI.

This app provides me points by doing something good for health and wellness and I like to collect points.

Today, I registered and became a member.

This app is not free; but Let’s do it!
