These days, it seems like all the days blend together. That’s where an Apple Watch or other smartwatch can help. Your entire schedule is not only at fingertips—it’s on your wrist, too. Can’t find your phone? Ping it from your watch. Trying to find inspiration to work out? Turn on push notifications and have a (friendly) competition with loved ones to close your rings. Forget your wallet at home? Just tap that computer below your hand on the card reader. So if someone you know (or you) has been waiting for the “right time” (pun intended) to get a smartwatch, the moment has finally arrived.
