So today I tested out a hypothesis about seeing 613.

I tried to do it intentionally.

I was getting my activity, and lo and behold, I see that I am at 612 calories burned so far.

Oh, how cool — I can capture 613 in a another second or two.

And I continue my activity looking intently at the Apple Watch monitor.

Okay, 613 now!

No, now!

How about now?

But it doesn’t come.

I am waiting for it.

It can’t come on my terms.

Next thing I know, the calorie counter jumps from 612 to 616.

I can’t believe it.

I couldn’t capture the 613 when I wanted to.

Every other time so far has been — we’ll it’s just been.

And maybe that’s the whole point. ;-)
