From connecting with other enthusiasts on Instagram and on online forums to getting their daily dose of content from numerous blogs, watch lovers in 2017 have a number of ways to enjoy their hobby. But if Instagram just isn’t enough to satisfy your lust for #womw, there’s 8past10—a relatively new app that offers everything from wrist shots and quizzes to testimonials and reviews from people simply excited to share their love of watches. Christian spent some time playing with the app to see what it’s all about.
8past10 has a layout and functionality similar to Instagram. There are tabs for “My Feed,” “Discover,” add photo, “Alerts” and “You” (your profile). That makes it easy for anyone who has experience with Instagram to quickly pick up the interface of 8past10. Being that it’s dedicated watch content, the area where 8past10 excels is in its “Discover” tab. Unlike Instagram, users can find much more than just photos and videos. Here you can find stories, featured brands, ongoing discussions, quizzes and highlighted users.
I also like that the “Discover” tab allows users to expand the number of visible discussions, articles, and photos. This enables you to browse through the options easier and to quickly build out your feed. Users can also sort content through “Trending” or “Latest.”
