Using an iWatch to do musical cues in your hypnosis show

 
Hold a microphone, hairbrush or a stick in your hand like a microphone. Notice that to look at your watch you must turn your wrist, moving the microphone away from your mouth, to see the watch face. If you wear a headset, this would not apply, but I use a hand-held mic myself.
 
Touch the watch face with a finger from your other hand. Notice you are not looking anywhere but down at the watch and it takes all your focus away from everything else.
 
The iWatch has small print; the print is on a watch. If you wear glasses or contact lenses while doing your show, you might be fine, but I do not so I could not read the fine print on the watch to determine what song I was on and the watch is very sensitive, so I found it difficult to get to my sound cues QUICKLY if a song ended or I wanted to change songs or adjust the volume with a moments notice.
 
The watch takes a bit of handling to get used to. You can use on-screen controls or spin the pin to change songs, and increase and decrease the volume. Learning to spin it one way or the other was confusing to me if I was not looking at the watch screen. Perhaps with more time, I'd get used to knowing these things more instinctually.
 
I like the watch for other reasons: it tells me when I get messages and emails, vibrates left (2x) and right (3x) when I use Maps as my GPS. If I leave my cell phone in another room when I leave the room or in the car while loading or unloading, and the phone rings, I can answer the phone like Dick Tracy and talk to my watch like a phone. 
 
When I am not doing a show, playing with the music function was fun! 
 
I have not played with it for more than a week, so all the pluses have not accumulated yet, but as for it doing my sound cues in the show - It's not going to work for me. Sorry Apple. I love you, and I will always use an iPod for my music, but the watch is not gonna be in the show!
