So, you just got an Apple Watch for Christmas. Now what?
The first thing you probably want to do is install apps that take advantage of this gorgeous and useful accessory. Just make sure to get Apple Watch screen protection before you start putting it to use. The last thing you want is to install all these great apps on your amazing new gadget and see it get damaged on the first day.
Here are some of the best apps for Apple Watch:
One of the best uses of an Apple Watch (apart from telling you the time) is as a means of tracking tasks. With this app, you add tasks by pressing the + button. Then, you simply describe the task using your voice. You can further add a start date and/or end date, and afterward, you can view all the things you need to get done on a particular day. You can also check off tasks as you complete them.
2. Dark Sky
Up-to-date weather information is another great use for an Apple Watch, and this app is one of the best at providing it. Wherever you happen to be, the app will let you know the weather forecast in that area. It can further warn you well in advance of any type of storms. The app also provides visual timelines of storms. So, for example, if it is raining, you can learn how much rain to expect during the course of the day and know until when it will be raining.
3. Carrot Fit
Fitness apps are yet another great use of an Apple Watch. This particular app is great for short and intense workouts. It is also really fun to use, as it includes a talking robot that is programmed to motivate you. You can further customize your workouts, by including the amount of exercise and rest you want, and the app rewards when you complete workouts by giving you upgrades and awards.
4. Just Press Record
Oftentimes it is useful to record yourself and/or conversations you are having. While you could do this on a phone, this app makes it ridiculously easy. Simply tap the big red button (or use a Siri voice command) to begin recording and tap it again (or use a voice command) to stop it. You can then browse through your recordings, play them, transcribe them to text and sync them with your phone or other devices.
If you are like most people, you have a hard time keeping track of all your passwords. This app solves this problem by remembering all your passwords for you. After you add all your accounts and passwords, you simply use the app to login into all your sites and apps. It can even create strong and unique passwords that are practically impossible to hack.
This handy app tracks not only how long you sleep but also the quality of your sleep as well. Best of all, it does all this automatically without any interaction from you. Simply wear your Apple Watch to bed and in the morning it will provide you with lots of data about how you slept the night before.
In addition to apps, you will probably want some Apple Watch screen protection, too. One of the best is the Yaochuang Apple Watch Tempered Glass Screen Protector with Metal Frame. It will protect your watch from both scratches and dust while keeping the device as touch sensitive as it was before.
Keep in mind that there are lots of tips and tricks that will help you get the most out of your new watch. Enjoy your new Apple Watch!
