For Christmas in my family, we always get one big gift. Sometimes it’s split between 2 different gifts, but this year, mine was an Apple Watch. Since the watches came out, I never understood why people would shell out around $250 on a smartwatch. I’ve got Apple everything, yes I am one of those people. I’ve got the laptop, the phone, the tablet, literally, the only thing missing was the watch. I never asked for it, but now that I have it…I understand what I’ve been missing out on! I’ve got 4 super quick reasons why I love this Apple Watch so much and why I actually can recommend it!
1. It Tracks my Activity!
I’ve never been one for a Fitbit. Sorry, not sorry. I’m obsessed with my watch because I can keep track of my activity without thinking about having something without much function on my arm. I love how it tracks my activity and tells me when I need to stand up, which keeps my lazy bum moving. I honestly never think about things like how much I stand up or even just doing 500 calories a day, but the watch keeps me on task.
2. I Will Never Lose My Phone AGAIN!
I’m that person who we all have in our lives who loses everything. Keys, phone, shoes, really it all goes missing at some point. The watch has a key feature that allows me to ping my phone when I need it and it’s within Bluetooth range. This has already come in handy because I was able to figure out where my phone was within a minute.
3. It Reminds Me to Drink Water.
I had to download an app for this, but with the app my Water, I make sure I drink around 2L a day. You don’t think it’s a lot, but in reality, it takes a while to actually get on board with drinking that much water. It’s uncomfortable in the beginning, but it helps me be health conscious. Having an app that reminds me to keep on top of things I normally would forget about is so helpful and one of the best things about having apps on the watch.
4. I Can Stay Up to Date on the Go.
I keep the majority of my appointments, meetings, etc. in a Google calendar which connects to my laptop. Because of the Apple cross-device connectivity, I’m able to see what I have coming up on each day, simply by opening the watch. Staying up to date is a great aspect of the watch and it’s almost like it’s a personal assistant that I can use on the go!
