You may be asking yourself: why do I need an Apple Watch if I already have a smartphone and possibly even a fitness tracker? We asked ourselves the same thing and we discovered that the Apple Watch does far more than just tell time.
Here are a few reasons we loved the Apple Watch and why it’ll make a great gift for dad:
- It’s easy to go hands-free: baby on hip or wrangling a tantruming toddler and trying to cook dinner? We enjoyed the hands-free ability of the watch. You can easily dictate messages or ask Siri questions while doing all the parenting things. We thought we’d miss our phone, but we (surprisingly) didn’t.
- Count your steps and track your health: cleaning up our living room alone got us a few hundred steps closer to our goal. We loved the ease of tracking our health with the Apple watch. From counting steps to the ECG app to the fitness tracker and blood oxygen monitor, we found that wearing the watch daily made us more invested in our health.
- Customized faces: sure, we’re with our kids almost 24/7, but we still like to be reminded of their cute faces (especially when they’re being devious). We tried the custom face that connects to our photos and loved that every time we looked down at the watch, a new family memory popped up.
- Supports the family setup: the Series 6 supports the new family setup. Curious what that is? Read all about it here.
There are currently three different Apple Watch models available. Click here to discover the one that’s right for you.
