VIP Mail and Thread Notifications
When using Mail, make your boss or your client a VIP and be alerted by Apple Watch when they email. Say goodbye to that constant “what if they’ve emailed?” iPhone checking. Monitoring an important conversation by email? Hit ‘Notify Me’ in the mail on your iPhone, and have Apple Watch notify you every time someone replies. Cancel the feature with one tap when you’re done.
Add your style to default replies
Default replies make responding to messages and emails as simple as a tap, and by customizing them you can add your own style. For example, if you’re always running late, create a reply that says “I’m running late, as usual, be there in 5.” You can even use an emoji.
Cover to mute Calls
You’re in a packed theater and your iPhone rings. Discreetly place your hand over Apple Watch to silence it, all the while glaring at someone else to pass off the embarrassment.
Sync a playlist to Apple Watch so it’s available offline for an iPhone-free, cable-free liberating workout. Just you and your Bluetooth headphones.
Put the show in slideshow
Use Apple Watch to control your presentation. Apple Watch can start, navigate and end a presentation.
Ask Siri to Remind You
More powerful than ever, use Siri for location-based reminders like “remind me to pick up my dry cleaning when I leave work” or “remind me to take the trash out when I get home.” You can also enlist Siri to help with currency conversions and calculating tips in restaurants, even splitting tips and contributions across groups, for example, “what’s the tip on a $250 check between six?” Cooks love to use Siri hands-free. Raise your wrist and say “Hey Siri” and then state your question or command, for example, “start at the 3-minute timer,” so you know when it’s time to turn the steak.
Apps to try:
Create good and healthy habits with Streaks. Choose up to six tasks you’d like to achieve, for example, reading, playing music, or taking a walk and Streaks will help you accomplish them using gentle reminders and encouragement. Available around the world. Get Streaks from the App Store
Things and Small Task
Things is a great task manager that’s easy to use, yet powerful. Running natively on Apple Watch, Things also has a watch face complication to show your progress through the day. Small Task is great if you want to add notifications quickly and easily, for example “buy milk” or “return shirt.”
