Everything you need to Know About the Apple Watch!
Apple watch is an ultimate device for healthy life. The Apple Watch is not a device intended to replace your phone, it’s intended to augment it. It takes all the incoming notifications, alerts and messages, and funnels them down into a screen about the size of a potato chip. It gives you the Cliffs Notes version of your mobile experience.
It’s not personal, it’s passive
It lets you separate the wheat from the chaff, and respond accordingly. You’re never going to spend hours or even minutes laboring your Apple Watch because it’s not a personal computer — it’s a passive one.
Here are some benefits of using an Apple watch:
1. Battery life isn’t a problem
When the Apple Watch was announced last fall, there was little mention of battery life. It was assumed that this meant the battery life was terrible, otherwise, Apple would have been singing its praises from day one. Guess, we were wrong. The battery works great. Unless you intentionally spend several hours bonking the screen with your angry little sausage fingers, you’re never going to drain the battery.
So, don’t worry about range anxiety –running out of battery is still your phone’s job.
2. It acts as your personal assistant.
Voice input on the Apple Watch might be the favorite interactive feature of all. The text messaging and email dictation is fantastic, turning the rush hours from wasted to productive opportunities for short email responses. We can also set reminders to call a co-worker, make a lunch reservation or submit an expense report.
3. Take control of business travel chaos
This is where the world of apps really comes into play. A few favorite Apple Watch tips:
- Use airlines apps, like British Airways and Fly Delta, to see your itinerary and gate information at a glance.
- Apple Pay is perfect for quickly grabbing a coffee or sandwich on the run since you can set it to charge your corporate card–great for avoiding the “it’s in here somewhere” search through an over-packed laptop bag.
- Maps app helps by giving turn-by-turn directions on the wrist.
4. Stay on the top of the day-to-day work stuff
Apps for all of the most-adopted work tools are available on watch. We can access Microsoft PowerPoint, Salesforce, Evernote, Trello and the list goes on… The Apple watch helps keep up with a wide variety of content, notifications and basic information.
5. Finally, shut out the world
I think this might be the most important productivity tip of all. Sure, the Apple Watch and the two or three other devices we carry around is great for boosting work productivity. But technology distractions are also one of the greatest inhibitors to getting the job done. Just like I hope you do around the dinner table with your family, make an effort to block out time to turn off your watch, laptop, and smartphone. Disconnect from mail and instant messaging. Get the work done.
Like our smartphones and laptops, we all use technology in different ways, adapting them to our unique roles, workflows, and needs.
