I just ordered the new cellular Apple Watch. For my lifestyle, this is a game changer. For over two years now, my Apple Watch has been the first thing I grab and put on as soon as I wake up.
For health: tracking movement and monitoring heart rate.
For communication: messages and calls.
For time management: calendar and todo lists.
A combination of being connected while still being focused on the environment around me, changes the way I think about technology. I want all of this information constantly, but I want it to compliment my day, not interrupt it. That’s what the Apple Watch does. I always keep it silent, so it taps me on the wrist with information, and I respond to that tap whenever I’m ready.
With a cellular Apple Watch, I could go to the gym, or go for a walk around the city, or run errands around town, without the need to bring my phone with me. Just the Watch and my AirPods.
Phone calls and Apple Music will go directly to my ear, without me ever having to reach for a phone.
Siri will always be a command away (and because of the W3 chip inside of this new Watch, Siri actually speaks out loud again).
Maps and directions would all happen from my wrist.
More than anything, though, the chains of technology are now broken off. I don’t have to hold a gadget to get an incredible amount of information, it’s now always a glance away.
