If you’ve finally joined the Apple Watch club, welcome. It’s a glorious watch. If you are on the brink of getting one and need something to push you over the edge, you can easily purchase one and pay just about $15 a month for two years with T-Mobile’s Apple Watch deal. Makes it pretty enticing to get one right? But before you dive right into the smart watch, take note of the following tips to make your experience even better.
Hold off on downloading all available apps that come with the Apple Watch. You’ll see during setup, the option to “Install All” or “Choose Later”—choose to install later. This will help speed up the process of initial setup and allow you to pick and choose which apps you actually want on the Watch.
Watch Face Photo
iPhone owners – ever notice that “Favorite” heart button at the bottom of your photos? There’s a reason for that, and one of them is so your Apple Watch can automatically pull from your Favorites folder to project these pics on the face of the watch. Let this new found tip guide your picture selection in choosing exactly which images your watch face will cycle.
When you receive a call on your Watch but prefer to take it on your actual phone, all you have to do is accept the call via smart watch then swipe up and it’ll seamlessly transfer the call to your phone.
If you need the power on your watch to last cause you won’t be able to charge it for a while, there’s an option to save some energy. Press and hold the second button and a power menu will appear. Tap “Power Reserve” and drag to the right side of the screen, which then set the watch to only show time when prompted, thus, saving your battery life.
As soon as you’ve synced your music playlist, pair Bluetooth headphones or speakers to the Apple Watch. This is super convenient for workouts since it negates lugging around a heavier phone with earphone cords attached, and connects you wirelessly to your jams during the sweat session.
