The Ultimate Apple Watch Gift Guide

The Ultimate Apple Watch Gift Guide ()

The Apple Watch is one of the most sought-after gifts on the entire wearable/accessory market. Why? Well, because it is an Apple product, first of all, you already know that endless quality is bound to be included. But they are also so popular because they are jam-packed with exciting features. In this article, our goal is to highlight exactly why the humble Apple watch is the perfect gift, what it can do, what it tracks, and answer some of the most frequently asked questions when it comes to the Apple Watch. We will even give you a sneak peek into our very own Apple Watch collection.

Why Should I Buy an Apple Watch?

In our humble opinion, there are 3 main reasons that you should consider buying an Apple Watch:

  • It helps to keep you connected: Everyone likes to stay updated. We are all partial (or perhaps too partial) to checking our phones. But what if we told you that there was a way for you to stay connected without having to check your phone at all. That‚Äôs right; an Apple Watch is the perfect way to stay connected to those you love and care for the most without needing to put your hands near your pocket. How? With the Apple Watch, you can make and receive calls, listen to music, and get directions when needed.
  • It works with Siri: Yes, you can speak to your watch like you speak to your phone. Simply set up the Siri voice assistant, and you can make a voice note, ask questions, have her announce calls or notifications, or even remind you of your schedule.

  • The Health Benefits: A massive list of health benefits comes with owning an Apple Watch. After all, it is far more than just an accessory that helps you to tell the time. Here are some of the primary health settings/features/benefits that come with the Apple Watch:

  1. For one, the Apple Watch monitors heart rate, helps track cardio fitness, and analyses heart-rate recovery and variability.

  2. The watch also detects if you have suffered a hard fall and, after 30 seconds, will dial emergency services if there is no response from you. So it could save your life.

  3. It promotes positive mental health and meditation through various mindfulness activities and exercises.

  4. It has a sound level monitor and will tell you when you are in an environment that is too loud and might damage your hearing.

What an Apple Watch Tracks

There are so many things that an Apple Watch tracks. In fact, there are almost too many features to name. Some of the key things that an Apple Watch tracks include fitness/workouts, sleep duration and quality, heart rate and social media notifications. It is the perfect mini-accessory that will keep track of everything that matters.

Are Apple Watches Waterproof?

Like the iPhone models, the Apple Watch is water-resistant but not waterproof. The Series One, for example, has a water resistance rating of IPX7, which means that it can withstand up to 3 feet of water. Some of the newer versions are swim-proof, which means you can track your swims in a pool or the ocean. The Apple watches should not be used when scuba diving or during high-velocity water sports such as jet skiing, water skiing and others. 

Can I Facetime on an Apple Watch?

Believe it or not, yes, you can. Since the watch has a built-in mic and speaker, you can use FaceTime on your watch whenever you need to. This is just another reason why the Apple Watch is the perfect purchase for anybody looking to get someone they care for an amazing gift.

Can I listen to music on an Apple Watch?

You can, of course. In fact, it is super easy to do. Simply open your music app on the watch, tap on a song or a playlist, and press play. It is that simple.

Do I need an iPhone to use an Apple Watch?

Yes, it is recommended to set up your watch on your iPhone, after all, it is an Apple product. Whilst your watch can work independent of your iPhone, it does require the iPhone to pair it and set it up. Check out our blog on the Apple Ecosystem for more information.
