1. Exercise tracking & motivation
Remember that big void I mentioned earlier? I’m happy to report that the Apple Watch has done a great job of tracking my activity every day along with celebrating good days and motivating me to step up on days I am being lazy.
2. Incognito notifications
A flick of the wrist and a swipe down on the watch face is all I need to see all the notifications on my iPhone. I don’t have to pull my phone out any more and make it very obvious that I am not paying attention at a meeting. Heck, I don’t think I’ve ever missed a phone call since owning it.
3. MacBook Pro auto unlock
Little did I know that an Apple Watch can be used to unlock a MacBook! This feature alone has saved me from typing my password 50 times a day, reducing the wear and tear on the keyboard overall.
4. Sleep tracking
I use an app called Pillow
to track my sleep every night and I love the report every morning that tells me how bad my sleep was the night before. I’m going to get this right one day..
5. The perfect cup of tea
I use the Alarm/Timer function way more than I thought I would. Whether it is to make sure my cup of tea doesn’t steep for too long or as an incognito reminder to not overstay an event, the silent buzz on my wrist always keep me in check and on time.
