Can Apple Smart Watches Be Stylish And Practical?

Processed with VSCO with a5 presetI’ve been trying to plan ahead with my blog and the types of things I want to post. I did hit a bit of a brick wall, where I wasn’t sure of the content I wanted to make. I’m so excited to be creating Christmas content that I wasn’t sure what to post prior to that.

Processed with VSCO with a5 presetProcessed with VSCO with a5 presetI’ve decided to write this blog post on my Apple watch and what I think of it, seeing as the new Apple watch has just been released. I’ve had my Apple watch about a year and a bit, and I have the original rose gold sport watch with the 42mm screen. This was a 20th birthday present and before receiving the watch, I had never really contemplated buying a smart watch.

I always thought I wouldn’t get on with a smart watch and that it would be too ‘techy’ for me. Oh boy how I was wrong, I love my smart watch and all its features. I use my smart watch a lot but the fitness features are definitely my favourite. I love being able to see how many steps I’ve taken throughout the day, but I also love that you can set it up when you’re about to do a workout and it will track how many calories you’ve lost and how long you’ve been working out for. This is really useful for me as the watch then transfers the data into your health and watch app on your iPhone.. it’s so simple!

The watch has lots of different features but some of my favourites are that you can receive messages on it and then send short replies, you can take photos on your phone from the watch and you can access a range of different apps on the watch that you have on your phone. The apple watch is so versatile and I always find myself looking for it on my arm when I’m not wearing it because i’m so used to it vibrating when I get a message. I think its so useful being able to check my messages on my watch without having to get my phone out, especially if i’m busy or in a lecture!

Lavender Strap

The one thing I was worried about when getting an apple watch was that it would be too chunky on my wrist, especially with the bigger screen. However, I was pleasantly surprised, it didn’t look too chunky nor did it look out of place. My boyfriend originally bought me the silver watch with the white sports strap, however I asked him if he would mind me changing it to the rose gold watch because I knew I would wear it more.

I love mixing up the straps and wearing different ones and while taking the photos for this blog, rediscovered my sports straps and decided to swap them in. I especially love the stone grey sport strap because it has the rose gold detailing to match the other watch, however I have recently been wearing the woven strap a lot as I was going for less of a sporty vibe.

Processed with VSCO with a5 presetWhen I first got my watch Apple hadn’t released any pink straps to match the rose gold watch, however with the release of the Apple watch two and three came a pink strap. So I think I am going to try and purchase the pink sands sport band as I love the pale pink colour and think it would match the rose gold perfectly and come on, everyone knows I love rose gold!

Whereas with a phone I automatically charge it because I know I need it the next day, the watch I always take off and forget to put it on charge. This might just be because I am forgetful but I would definitely suggest buying the phone and watch dock because then you can charge your watch and phone at the same time, meaning you will get more wear out of it!
