Apple Watch: 15 Things You Didn’t Know (Part 2)

The Apple Watch has become one of the most highly talked devices as of late. Even still, there are quite a number of things that most people don’t know about the device. Here are some more facts.

Number Eight: You Can Use It For Security

People who own the Apple Watch can easily make their home even more secure by using it to view security camera footage. This is the kind of flexibility many homeowners don’t get to have.

Number Seven: It Has a Secret Sensor That Can Be Used by Diabetics

Everyone knows that heart rate monitors need sensors to tell your heartbeat, but the Apple Watch uses a different sort of technology that expands on that basic function. It also records blood information that diabetics can use to test their blood sugar, which is super cool.

Number Six: You Can Time Travel With the Apple Watch

By using the watch’s forward function, user’s can travel forward in time and get information about the future, including weather information, schedules, and more. Impressive!

Number Five: You Can Press On The Screen for More Options

Many people expect to access a limitless number of actions with a touch screen in general, but most people don’t expect the screen to act as a button all on its own. By forcing the screen down, you can access the watch’s option screen.

Number Four: Special Settings for Lefties

Often, left-handed people feel left out in the world. Scissors, desks, and doors make life sort of hard sometimes. But with Apple Watch, things are different. One can simply change it’s orientation, and it’s really simple to do on the watch.

Number Three: You Can Actually Switch Between Apps

Many people complained that switching in between apps on the watch was difficult/impossible, but it’s not really, not after you learn this trick. All people need to do to switch between apps is to double click the digital crown.

Number Two: It’s More Waterproof Than Advertised

Apple advertised its watch as being pretty water resistant, but it passes more tests than one may realize. It can survive being in the shower and dunked in water for 5 minutes, and still works just fine, as it turns out.

Number One: If The Bands Are Scratched, It’s Too Bad

If the band you get for the watch has any minimal scratches on it, Apple won’t  accept returns or exchanges on it. As one can imagine, that has upset a bunch of people, but people who own it still love the product. Thanks for reading!
