I love Apple Products, be it the MacBook, the iPhone or the iPad. But I never imagined I’d love the Apple Watch so much.
For a long time, I thought Apple Watch was useless, and if I had to track my steps and sleep, I could do that using any smartwatch or even a fitness band.
I was wrong about the Apple Watch
But then I came across a video showing Apple watch can be used as a viewfinder for your iPhone’s camera. I had the Apple watch on my wrist in a a few days. But even then, I thought the Cellular version was a waste. Because if you carry your smartphone everywhere, you go, why would you need a cellular connection on your Watch as well?
It makes sense to buy the cellular version of the Apple watch for many readers. If you want to disconnect and enjoy some me time, the cellular version Apple Watch helps with that.
You can leave your iPhone behind when you are going for your run in the morning, or maybe when you want to enjoy your me time.
Stay Reachable While Being Disconnected
Cellular Watch will ensure your friends and family can still be in touch with you whenever they want. And these days, staying disconnected means staying off the social media platform because that is where most of the anxiety comes from.
The cellular version of the Apple Watch doesn’t have social media apps. It doesn’t have YouTube; it doesn’t have Instagram. It doesn’t have Twitter or any other app that is quite addictive on a smartphone.
While I still can’t get notifications from Gmail or text messages, I am perfectly fine with getting notifications because whenever I want to disconnect from the internet, I want to disconnect from the social media part of it.
Access Important Tools without your iPhone
When you go out without your smartphone, you can enjoy your me time with less distraction with all the necessary tools that are still accessible.
For example, you can get directions to a particular place using the maps on your Watch, and you can use your voice to set reminders or note something even when your smartphone is not with you because ideas can come anytime, even when you are enjoying your me time.
The Wi-Fi version Apple Watch becomes a Dumb watch without the iPhone because it doesn’t have data, so Siri doesn’t work. You can’t get weather updates, or even the remote camera doesn’t work.
The Apple Watch Cellular is great for Gym
If you work out and go to the gym, you can go without your smartphone and use Apple Watch to listen to your music on Apple Watch or Spotify or Google music if you have the way AirPods connected to it.
I love that I can listen to my podcast when I’m going for a walk, and I don’t think my iPhone is with me. If I want to call someone, or someone wants to call me, I am available now, and honestly disease, I don’t even have to worry about whether my iPhone is charged or not because I know that I will not be missing any calls as long as I have got my Apple Watch with me.
Apple Pay is a service that doesn’t work in India, but wherever it does, this is another great feature of the Apple cellular watch: you don’t need your smartphone to make payments using apple pay.
You have to pay additional money in the US and other countries for the cellular plans that support Apple Watch. In India, service providers like Jio offer it for free.
So it is just that you have to pay extra hundred dollars while buying the Watch for the cellular option, and that’s it.
