I love to write on the Apple Watch, and I love to write on smart home devices. It’s not often that I find a reason to write about the two together, but watchOS 8 might just have changed that.

Among other useful updates like a much improved messaging experience and an added Find My Devices app, watchOS 8 introduces a redesigned HomeKit app. And in the few weeks since the full software went live, I’ve used HomeKit more than ever.
