Apple Watch. The Cupertino t3ch giants’ answer to smart wearables is a stylish timepiece that links up to your Apple iPhone to receive and respond to notiﬁcations, track your daily activity, pay for things using Apple Pay, and more – with a flick of the wrist. We get our hands on the Apple Watch and on to our wrists to see what is up. Check it out:
The Apple Watch shines brightest by relaying key info from your iPhone and sending it to your wrist. Get a text or phone call? You can respond to it on your watch. Want to track your workouts? You can do that, too. And with apps like RunKeeper, you can track your workouts either with or without your phone. And while you’re working out, you can track your heart rate. As a user for only 2 weeks, tat’s what I’m currently using Apple Watch for. I’m looking forward to seeing what other apps will be useful to me in the future.
The Sports model is ideal for the active person because of two reasons: the aluminium casing is Apple’s own custom alloy that is 60 percent stronger than standard aluminum and its display is protected by a lightweight aluminosilicate glass. What that means to you and me is that you don’t have to worry about the weight on your wrist and whether you abuse it during everyday use.
