I’ve had my watch for about 4 months now so I figured it was time to share my thoughts. I get questions just about every day regarding my watch so I’ve rounded up some of my most frequently received questions and answered them here. As always, if you have any questions that I didn’t touch on just let me know down in the comments!
Do you like it?/Is it worth the money?
I combined these two just because they’re usually asked together. First off, yes I love it! Second, yes I think it’s worth the money, however, there is a caveat to that, that caveat is that it depends on what you want it for.
Why did you get it?
I had been toying with the idea of getting one since it launched but I held off. Finally, I got a job where pretty much EVERYONE had one. I am a server/bartender so being on my phone isn’t really an option when I’m working, so the watch allows me to keep up with my notifications and determine whether or not I need to go handle/deal with something. I also didn’t have any sort of activity tracker so it was a multi solution.
What do you use it for?
What do you love most about it?
That’s a tough one… I love being able to answer the phone on my watch, although I usually just use this feature when I’m at work, and it’s usually just to tell me mom that I’ll call her back later…
Anything you would change about it?
What features do you use most?
What about your other watches?
This was my biggest worry when I was trying to decide whether or not I should buy it. I have a lot of watches and I like to swap them out depending on the day and what I’m wearing. Since I bought my apple watch though I’ve worn it pretty much exclusively, I do wear my other watches on occasion but for the most part I’ve been loving the apple watch.
What color do you have?/What series do you have?
If you’re debating on whether to get the series 1 or 2, I chose the 2 just because of the waterproof feature, I figured if I was going to spend $200 on a watch I might as well just spend the extra $100 to make sure it’s waterproof. My friend has the series 1 and she has no complaints though!
Does your phone die faster?
I don’t think so! You do have to leave your bluetooth on, but you’re also not using your phone as much to check things throughout the day, so things kind of balance out.
Does the face scratch easily?
Should I get the 38 or the 42 mm?
Tips & Tricks
1 – You can clear all of your notifications at once (just pull down your notifications tab and press down until the clear all button appears)
2 – You have to charge it EVERY night. The watch only has about 1.5 days charge so if you don’t it’s going to die on you in the middle of the day.
3 – If you’re on the fence, give it a 30 day try when you buy from BestBuy. They have a pretty good return policy and that way you’ll know for sure if you think it’s worth the investment!
