The 5 Best Things About the Apple Watch

I've been bonding with my Apple Watch for a month now, and I have fallen absolutely head over heels in love with it! Here are the five best things about the Apple Watch!

1) Fitness Tracking
I used to have a FitBit that I wore everywhere because I loved the fitness tracking aspect of it. The Apple Watch is similar as it tracks your steps, calories burnt, activity, etc... But it's better! I love how it buzzes so you know when you're too sedentary and need to stand, and the progress updates throughout the day are so motivating and help keep me accountable. 

2) Notifications
I can now put my phone in my purse and not worry about missing anything because the watch will get calls, texts, and notifications from apps! It's so useful when you're in sensitive situations where you can't necessarily pull out a phone (like in class, meetings, dinners...) but still want to stay connected. 

3) Customization
You can customize your watch face in so many different ways! I use the "Modular" one with the date, clock, activity, temperature, battery, and the Honolulu time. All of these are super helpful for me for various reasons and I love having everything I need right in front of me. It also looks really clean and the customization is just really nice!

4) Maps
I have used my watch when driving with maps and I really liked it. The watch will vibrate when you need to turn and just works really seamlessly with an iPhone, so you get a really good experience! I was really impressed with it, and it's so much nicer than just using your phone and being confused whether you're supposed to turn at this street or the next one...

5) Text
I know some people don't like texting with the watch because you can only dictate or use the preset texts, but it's really helpful when you're in busy situations and can't be bothered with full replies. For example, it's easy to hit the "I'm on my way" button when you're driving (stopped at a stoplight) instead of texting and driving, which is illegal depending on where you live and extremely dangerous if you're not stopped. 

I'm so happy with my watch and there's a lot that I'm loving about it! Definitely the first three are the best things about the watch for me! I haven't gone a day without wearing it yet, which is a great sign, and I can't see myself stopping any time soon!
