Description

The Apple Watch took the world by storm in 2015. It’s sleek and simplistic design combined with endless features makes this a very popular device on the market. Some unique features include smartphone notifications and Apple Pay, which make it possible to take a trip to the grocery store without your phone. The battery life, price and lack of being waterproof are three downfalls with the Apple Watch. The battery lasts a little over a day which makes charging necessary at night or when you’re sitting in the office. It makes the most sense to charge at night considering it doesn’t have sleep tracking. Read texts, emails, screen calls, and even check social media all from your wrist.
