While Apple has been known for its invention of the iPhone, they have brought something new to the table. Released back in April 2015, Apple announced its first smart watch. With quite a price tag, costing from $399 on up, some may argue that it is expensive and that they are not paying that much for a watch. I know because I was one of those people.
After a few months passed I began to see coworkers getting these watches and using them for various things. Some use them for fitness tracking and some use them for productivity. Back a few weeks ago I got to go in the Apple Store while taking my work issued computer in to have an in-warranty repair performed. I began to play with the watch and asked questions. Low and behold I ended up walking out of the Apple Store as a new Apple Watch owner.
Since purchasing the watch, it has definitely been much of a convenience to me. I put my watch on in the mornings and throughout the day I am alerted of meetings that I have for the day, I have the ability to check email, text messages, and even answer phone calls directly from my watch without having my phone in my hand as long as it is in close proximity.
The Apple Watch allows me to see when messages come in if I am in a meeting without the hassle of having to pull my phone out. This can be a good thing because it won’t put so much attention on me by having a cell phone in my hand showing that I’m obviously not paying attention.
I feel that this was an awesome idea and a purchase that I won’t regret. I think it’s amazing to have such innovative technology available. Keep up the good work Apple!
