You've no doubt heard of the Apple Watch, but what can you do with it? It's hard to really name everything, but I'm still going to try and show you the coolest features. To get the most out of your Apple Watch, you do need an iPhone. And trust me, once you have an Apple Watch, you'll never want to be without it.

Personal health coach

The Apple Watch is your personal coach. It measures just about everything having to do with healthy living, including your steps, calories burned, heart rate, workouts, and breathing. Are you not that much of an athlete that you need to analyze your heart rate to see if your condition's improving? Maybe you just want to know when your heart rate's too high. If you set this, the Apple Watch will send you a warning when your heart rate's too high. The Apple Watch will also motivate you to keep moving by setting your daily exercise goals.

The ideal exercise partner

Working out with Apple Watch

Some people think that the Apple Watch isn't suitable as a sports watch. Those people are wrong. In fact, the Apple Watch is the ideal sports watch. You can start both indoor and outdoor workouts and the Apple Watch will keep track of everything for you. Bad weather? The Apple Watch is water resistant, so rain is never an excuse to skip an outdoor workout. Besides the standard workout app, there are also a lot of fitness apps available. The health app lets you track all your statistics and check whether you're making progress.

As a remote

It may sound strange, but you can also use the Apple Watch as a remote, for your Apple TV or iTunes, for example. Do you own a lot of smart devices, like smart lights? You can control those with the Apple Watch as well. There are many useful apps to control your smart home. With Siri, you can give commands like "Turn on the lights downstairs." Your Apple Watch can also serve as an extension of your iPhone. Want to take a group picture? Instead of using the timer, use the Apple Watch as a remote.

Daily use

Calling with Apple Watch

The Apple Watch makes daily life a little easier. Because you'll receive all notifications on your Watch, you won't need to check your iPhone as often. You'll instantly see when you receive a phone call, which is convenient when your iPhone is often set to silent mode. You can even answer the call from your wrist. In addition, the timer function is ideal when you're cooking an egg, for example. How about navigating with your wrist? Your Apple Watch will vibrate slightly to warn you when you need to turn left or right. No one will know that you don't know where to go!

Appealing design
