The Many Benefits of Apple’s Smart Watch


I bought an Apple Watch as an attempt to better my life and it worked! I know it’s easy to reject the Apple Watch because you’re afraid it’s just another life-sucking dopamine drip, but it’s not.

With the Apple Watch:

  • My phone stays in my pocket ( I use my phone less )
  • Text and social-media messages are 10X Quicker 
  • I enjoy several health benefits

In fact, with my Apple Watch, I am healthier, less distracted, and more productive.

This video highlights many of the features and benefits I love about the Apple Watch, and I’ve listed the rest of my favorite benefits below the video.

* Keep Scrolling to See a Few Extra Features That Were Missed In The Video *

*** AMAZON HAS CHEAPER APPLE-WATCH PRICES THAN ANYWHERE ELSE!!!! ***


BENEFITS OF APPLE WATCH

YOUR WATCH IS EASY TO SET UP:

The video didn’t emphasize how easy it is to set up your Apple Watch. You can buy it from Amazon ( on the cheap ) and then set it up yourself at home. 

If you have any issues, (which you won’t) you can always go to a local Apple or Cellphone Store and they will easily be able to help you.

WITH THE WATCH, YOUR PHONE STAYS IN YOUR POCKET:

Also, she didn’t emphasize how useful the Apple Watch is for keeping your phone in your pocket and limiting your screen time.

For instance, with the Apple Watch, I almost never take my phone out of my pocket to send text or social media messages. The pre-fab msgs you can send from your watch cover most of your texting needs!

BATTERY LAST ~ TWO DAYS:

Battery should last around two days, but of course, it depends on how much you use your device.

REPLYING TO MESSAGES IS QUICK AND EASY!


Preset Replies: Apple has an incredible list of pre-set replies that work wonders for what feels like 90% of my text messages. 

If you want to mix it up, you can also create your own pre-set messages. 

Preset replies like Hello, What's up, and on my way.
Frequently used emojis, like the heart and ok.

Text to Speech ( works incredibly well ), scribble, and more!

"Sounds good. Do you have any ideas" message.

Options to Reply, Send Location, See Details, or Choose a language.

GPS FEATURE:

If you want, you can get cell coverage on your Apple Watch so that you can receive calls and texts without your phone being around.

NOTIFICATIONS DELIVERED TO APPLE WATCH ARE THE BEST:

Your Apple Watch notifications are a mirror of your phone’s notifications.

The major benefit of checking your notifications with your watch instead of your phone is that it is much faster to check your watch than it is to dig into your pocket for your phone. 

Now, this efficiency may only save you a couple of hours each year, and that may not seem worth it, but the bigger efficiency comes from not getting lost in your phone when checking notifications.

If you’re anything like me, you may unlock your phone to check a notification, but then, all of a sudden, you find yourself on social media looking up Darth Vador quotes. 

Thankfully, because of my Apple Watch, this happens less…

EXCLUSIVE DO-NOT-DISTURB FEATURE (STAY LESS DISTRACTED:

When I write, I am constantly being distracted by my phone, but with my Apple Watch’s exclusive do-not-disturb features, it is happening less and less. 

All I do is press the do not disturb button on my watch and it brings up the drop-down menu that you see above. My watch even lets me choose the option for Do Not Disturb Until I leave X-Location, which is usually the one I opt for. 

Also, just so you know, if you don’t want your do-not-disturb setting to block all calls and notifications, you can set your do-not-disturb settings to allow certain calls and notifications.

YOU WILL NEVER MISSES A NOTIFICATION

If you have a notification that is sent to your wrist, it’s almost impossible not to feel.

Of course, this can be distracting, but, as I pointed out above, you can set strict parameters around the type and frequency of the notifications that hit your wrist.

APPLE PAY ON WATCH WORKS REALLY WELL

Apple Pay works great with the watch.

MAKE AND RECEIVE CALLS ON YOUR APPLE WATCH

As long as you are not in a crowded place, using your Apple Watch as a speakerphone works pretty well. And, it really does come in handy when your phone isn’t easy to access.

YOU CAN DOWNLOAD MUSIC AND PODCAST TO YOUR WATCH AND LEAVE YOUR PHONE AT HOME

If you like to run or workout without your phone, this feature combined with some wireless headphones and do the trick.

YOUR APPLE WATCH IS WATERPROOF

You can use your watch in showers, pools, and hot tubs! They are rated to go 50 ft underwater, but Apple doesn’t recommend you go down that far.  

The big benefit of this feature is that you can check the time in the shower. No longer will you have to cut your shower short over fears of being late!

YOUR WATCH CALLS 911 AFTER HARD FALLS

If Apple Watch Series 4 or later detects a hard fall while you’re wearing your watch, it taps you on the wrist, sounds an alarm, and displays an alert.

You can choose to contact emergency services or dismiss the alert by pressing the Digital Crown, tapping Close in the upper-left corner, or tapping “I’m OK.” 

Message that "It looks like you've taken a hard fall."

If your Apple Watch detects that you’re moving, it waits for you to respond to the alert and won’t automatically call emergency services. If your watch detects that you have been immobile for about a minute, it will make the call automatically.

After the call ends, your watch sends a message to your emergency contacts with your location letting them know that your watch detected a hard fall and dialed emergency services. Your watch gets your emergency contacts from your Medical ID.

Some countries and regions have multiple emergency service numbers. For these countries, Apple Watch will call the number associated with ambulance services.

APPLE ACTIVITY RINGS AND HEART MONITORING WILL MAKE YOU HEALTHIER

The Apple Watch tracks your heart rate, your daily movement, and even your daily sitting time.

What’s more, the Activity Rings close when you hit your daily activity goals. Since it is very satisfying to close your activity rings, you are more likely to be active! Thanks, Apple.

ASKING YOUR WATCH THE WEATHER IS AWESOME

Getting my weather on my Apple Watch is a big time saver, and I like the format on my watch more than the one on my phone.

CHANGING MUSIC AND VOLUME FROM MY WATCH IS ONE OF MY FAVORITE FEATURES ( ESPECIALLY FOR AIR PODS )

I listen to a lot of music, and regardless if I am listing over my Airpods, a Bluetooth speaker, an AUX speaker, or my iPhone speakers, I can change the volume and song from my apple watch, and it makes me very happy.

Long time supporter, and thought I’d drop a
comment.

Your wordpress site is very sleek – hope you don’t mind me asking what theme you’re using?
(and don’t mind if I steal it? :P)

I just launched my site –also built in wordpress
like yours– but the theme slows (!) the site down quite a bit.

In case you have a minute, you can find it by searching for “royal cbd” on Google (would appreciate any feedback) – it’s still in the works.

Keep up the good work– and hope you all take care of yourself during the coronavirus scare!

Its such as you read my thoughts! You appear to grasp a lot approximately this, such
as you wrote the ebook in it or something. I believe that you
could do with some p.c. to drive the message house a little bit, however other than that, that is magnificent
blog. An excellent read. I will certainly be back.
