    How do you use your Apple Watch?

    One of the interesting things about the Apple Watch is we all have individual personal uses for them. I probably use mine much differently than the way you use yours. So Iím curious how members use theirs.

    For me, first and foremost notifications. I find it so valuable to have that tap on my wrist when an important email or text comes in at a time itís not appropriate to look at my phone, or even a phone all so I know to accept or decline. I also like to keep Calendar events on every watch face along with weather for planning my day.

    These new activity notifications are great too. They arenít intrusive, and they give me a little motivation to get up and walk to meet my goals.

    Iíve also been enjoying having sports and Fantasy Football scores on my wrist during games when I canít watch. And at the end of the day when ready to go to bed, I tend to utilize the breath app to relax myself and wind down.

    So how do you use yours?

    Re: How do you use your Apple Watch?

    I only wear the watch during workouts - Iím big swimmer, so I LOVE the data you get for swim workouts with the new watchOS! I also use the watch when Iím doing other weight lifting or cardio workouts.

    However, I rarely (pretty much never) wear the watch the entire day, the notification stuff never really hooked me since I find myself wanting to do more than I can and so I pull my phone out anyways. Also definitely a Ďwatch traditionalistí and LOVE having a mechanical timpiece on my wrist when Iím not sleeping or doing activities (e.g. working out, hiking, etc.)

    I'm a cyclist so I've always got my apple watch on when I'm on the bike. The few times I go to the gym, I put it on too. I almost never have it on if i'm not doing something exercise related. I ride my bike to work a lot and I'll more often than not have another watch in my bag to change into once I've parked and gotten to my desk.

    Next to the above, I find the notifications of the Nest cameras useful. I use one as a babycam in the baby room. The watch taps when the cam notices a change, and shows a still camera grab.

    The activity monitor is useful yes, i use that a lot, but most of the time, i just use it for basic functionality - i do believe Apple Watches are awesome!

    I could write a couple dozen lines of all the little things I do with mine. But, to put it into one sentence:

    I use it so I donít have to have my phone next to me all day long.

    This thing is accurate to 50 milliseconds. So I use it to berate people who are late as this provides excellent proof. Sadly, I am a frequent target of my doing this.

    On a more serious note, I love it for the Pandora remote control and Maps. Having these two things on my wrist means not pulling the iPhone out of the car’s glovebox, where the iPod connection is. Safety first!
