Caring For Your Apple Watch
Quite the versatile little gadget, packed into such a small package, is the Apple Watch. The Apple Watch is a line of smartwatches produced by Apple Inc. Quickly becoming a best-selling wearable design, the Apple Watch incorporates fitness tracking, health-oriented capabilities, and wireless telecommunication, and integrates with iOS and other Apple products and services.
Depending on the series you purchase, there are a variety of activities that you can perform using the device. The main functional difference between the current series 6 and SE is that the SE has no ECG and blood oxygen functions and does not have an always-on display. Nonetheless, they are both incredibly good smartwatches.
Some of the common functionalities that stretch across all the different series are the following:
1.Listen to Music
You can listen to the playlists that you have created on your iPhone, Apple Radio stations, and if you are a subscriber, any music from Apple Music. Just set up your headphones via Bluetooth, and you are set!
2.Track Your Sleep
With its own built-in sleep tracker, the Apple Watch can both determine how much time you are asleep during the time and analyse it to show you your sleeping pattern.
3.Track Your Workouts
The Apple Watch is also able to track your progress in a variety of activities, ranging from hiking to swimming. As you perform your activity, the app shows you your time, calories burned, distance travelled, and heart rate.
If you are still wondering whether or not to invest in an Apple Watch, it is the ultimate choice if you own an Apple phone and want to share information, monitor your health, use Apple apps and get the same superb quality, well-integrated, extended functionality on your wrist.
How to Care For Your Apple Watch
Knowing how to care for and understanding the important handling information for your Apple Watch can make or break it, literally. It is a piece of highly technical device after all and taking care of it involved more than a simple polish here and there.
1.Careful what it’s exposed to
The Apple Watch is water-resistant but not waterproof. This means that it is alright to wear and use it during exercise as exposure to sweat is no problem. The Apple Watch can also handle the rain, and while washing your hands. When it is exposed to water, simply use a non-abrasive, lint-free cloth to wipe it off. Be careful of other sorts of liquids such as perfume, detergents or hair dye coming into contact with your Apple Watch.
2.Cleaning and care
After workouts or heavy sweating, clean and dry your Apple Watch. If it comes into contact with anything that could stain or damage it, clean it in the following way:
- Turn off the Apple Watch
- Remove the band by depressing the band release button
- Use a non-abrasive, lint-free cloth to wipe the watch, and lightly dampen the cloth if necessary
Take caution not to clean it while it is charging. Do not use any external heat sources or cleaning products either. Do take note that it is normal for the coating to wear over time.
Do be kind to your Apple Watch. Avoid excessive pressure on the buttons or force a charging connector into the port. The charging cable and connector should be regularly checked for any damage. If damaged, discontinue usage and replace immediately.
