An Apple Watch Experiment

I suffer pretty badly from seasonal affective disorder, or “S.A.D.”. Winters in Maine mean that the sun sets early, as early as 4:00 PM at the worst, and that overall lack of daylight really kills my energy levels, leaving me lethargic, grumpy, and tired by 5:00. It sucks, so I do my best to be as productive as possible during the day.

This morning, something occured to me: the Apple Watch has a sunset/rise complication, could it be useful for planning my day to know how much daylight I have left, and the (ever-changing) time of sundown?

Maybe.

I’m not honestly sure if having an exact countdown to sunset on my wrist at all times will help my S.A.D., worsen my anxiety, or do both. 🤷🏻‍♂️

I guess we’ll find out.
