| No Comments

The Apple Watch is great right out of the box, but you'll want to add a few apps to really make it sing. Apple's wearable is a true marvel, especially the Series 4, but you'll never know just how useful it can be if you don't expand your horizons a bit.

When we think about the Apple Watch apps we just can't live without, these are at the top of the list. Some are free, some are not, but every single one is worth your while.

You can check your heart rate any time using the Heart Rate app. Open the app, then wait for Apple Watch to measure your heart rate. You can also view your resting, walking, breathe, workout, and recovery rates throughout the day. To easily open the app, add the Heart Rate complication to your watch face or add the Heart Rate app to the Dock.

Apple has ... opened up a new online store for active military personnel and veterans to make purchasing its products at a discount more accessible. Different from its education pricing, eligible military customers will receive 10% off Apple products, and the new discounted pricing even includes iPhones, Apple Watch, accessories, and more.

Developer Zach Simone has today unveiled a new iPhone and Apple Watch app that tracks heart rate without activating a traditional Workout.

Then Killian, who wears his Apple Watch to bed three to four nights a week for sleep tracking, says his Apple Watch woke him up around 1 am with an alert from a third-party app called HeartWatch saying his resting heart rate was elevated while sleeping (Apple recently introduced a built-in feature that can do this with Apple Watch Series 1 and later). Killian experienced mild indigestion which can be a sign of a heart attack, but says he generally didn't feel sick.

Apple Watch Series 3 Space Gray Ceramic Edition Review | iMore

| No Comments

Last year, Apple Watch transitioned its Edition line from 18K yellow and rose gold to white ceramic. That took it from tens of thousands of dollars down to $1,299 for 38mm and $1,349 for 42mm. Still more than an iPhone X but much, much less than most ceramic watches.

Even though mechanical and computational watches have completely different value propositions, it does keep Apple Watch Edition at the very top end of Apple's offerings. In essence, it's for people who want an Apple Watch but also want it in ceramic.

And this year, with Apple Watch Series 3, it's also for people who want it in space grayceramic.

The Apple Watch And Women Lawyers: The Perfect Match | Above the Law

By 

It's been a little over two years now since the Apple Watch was released. Since then, I've noticed it gradually appear on more and more people's wrists. So it wasn't all that surprising when I read last week that since launching in 2015, more than 30 million Apple Watches have been shipped. That's a lot of Watches -- no wonder I'm seeing so many Watches "in the wild."

Gadget geek that I am, I've been a fan of the Apple Watch since it was released in 2015. After owning it for a few days, I was already appreciating the many benefits it offered. Interestingly, one of my favorite aspects of owning the Watch was that it helped to untether me from my phone, which in some ways seems counterintuitive. After all, how can adding another gadget to one's electronic arsenal somehow reduce reliance on tech? And yet, that's what I discovered after owning the Watch for just one week.

I also noticed that many of the Watch's features would prove to be particularly useful to women attorneys....

While it may seem counterintuitive, my Watch has limited the constant influx of information and thus reduced my reliance on my iPhone. It's become an integral part of my life and if I inadvertently leave the house without it, I almost always turn my car around and head back to get it. It also provides innumerable conveniences that make it worth its weight in gold on a daily basis.

Here's why I rely on my Watch so much. These features make my Watch indispensable.

Apple Watch Series 2 vs. Series 1 (and original)

| No Comments


The Apple Watch Series 2 is far from a major upgrade over its early 2015 predecessor, as the two smartwatches look nearly identical. There are, however, some key internal changes between the two: Dive in as we compare Apple Watch Series 2 vs. 1.

EDITOR'S NOTE: I find the the side-by-side graphic comparisons very useful.

MAC USER: The Apple Watch | Solo, Small Firm and General Practice Division

| No Comments



Victoria L. Herring (vlh@herringlaw.com) practices in Des Moines, Iowa, in an office that has used only Apple/Macs since the early 1980s.

I'm just old enough to remember the comic strip Dick Tracy and its image of the detective talking into his wristwatch, a two-way radio. The Apple Watch can be seen as something similar, but it's more than that. Plus, it's a bit weird to be talking into your wrist, even if there's an Apple Watch on it, so that is not something you'll do all that often.

I did not buy my Apple Watch immediately. I decided to wait and see the early reviews. Besides, I am not in the habit of wearing a watch and normally just look around for a clock or pull out my iPhone to check the time. However, after a few weeks I decided to go ahead and buy an Apple Watch, hoping it would be a good investment. Of course, I didn't buy the top-of-the-line model, not having an extra $17,000 for the gold Apple Watch Edition. Instead, I opted for the $349 Apple Watch Sport with a black sport band and a 38 mm space gray aluminum case. I now have some views on how the Apple Watch has already or will in the future impact my life.

iMore survey shows ultra-high levels of Apple Watch usage | iMore

| No Comments
iMore:

93% use the Apple Watch five or more days a week, 95% for eight or more hours a day.

There's been a lot of debate over how well the Apple Watch is selling. That's to be expected. Apple not only launched a new product category but the category itself is still new. Even with hard numbers, there would be very little in the way of context to understand what they mean and that won't change for a year or more. That's why, for iMore's inaugural Apple Watch survey, we chose to focus on something else entirely--not how the Apple Watch is doing but what we're all are doing with it.

For two weeks in July we collected answers using Survey Monkey and over 8000 of you were kind enough to respond. Here's what you told us.
