8 Ways Apple Watch Can Make Your College Life Easier
Don’t we all need some help during our years in college? Students’ lives are full of stress, hard work, and new challenges. Of course, these days the technological advances have made our lives as students much easier. All our devices are equipped with so many great features to help us go through the day. Though, we are always in a search for more, aren’t we? Well, fortunately, Apple keeps coming up with numerous new ways to help students with their studies and other daily activities. One of the new players in the world of devices, Apple watch, is here to make our lives as college students much easier. Here are 8 ways Apple watch can achieve that.
1. Mental health helper
Students and young people, in general, are especially vulnerable to many mental health issues. They are yet to learn how to take care of themselves. Thus far, students tend to prioritize all kinds of things over their own physical and mental health. It shouldn’t be like that. Apple watches can help students to put their mental health first. There are great Apple watch apps designed to calm you down, help you gain your inner pieces, and better focus by practicing simple breathing techniques.
2. Phone Finder
Don’t tell me you are one of those who always know where their phone is. I won’t believe you. We all tend to lose our iPhones at the most important moments. Well, the Apple watch can prevent that. They have a simple feature that allows you to detect your own iPhone. Just press the vibrating phone icon and your iPhone will make a loud noise. Just once though, so be all ears. Thus, within a few seconds, you are able to locate your phone with no trouble at all.
3. Remote Camera
This is by far one of my favorite features. You can use your apple watch as a remote camera. Thus, you can use your iPhone to take a picture. You can set your phone wherever you’d like, be on distance, and still see how your shot is going to look like. You can also use a timer to fix things before the photo is taken. This feature is especially great when you want to take a group photo stress-free.
4. Answer phone calls
Your Apple watch can ensure you fast access to your iPhone activities at any time. You don’t have to rush and run for your life every time you hear your ringtone somewhere in the distance. Also, it is especially useful when you have a phone call during a class and you can’t find your iPhone to turn it off. Well, now you can control your incoming calls with your Apple watch. Decline it or answer it from your watch, it’s as easy as never before.
5. Heart check
Perhaps, it’s the easiest way to check the work of your heart. Seriously, all you need to do is to keep on wearing that watch on your wrist. The rest is up to your Apple watch. It will collect the data, analyze it, make a full report. You can see the full information on your heart in the iPhone app. Though, you can see quick updates on your Apple watch at any time. It is especially useful for students who often experience a lot of stress during the day.
6. Music control
I believe all of us love studying with our earphones on. But it really sucks when you get distracted every time you don’t like the song that’s playing. Now you need to go on a search for your phone or reach for your mac computer since you need to switch a song. It takes time and, most importantly, distracts you from your studies. Well, no more of that. You can use your Apple watch for remote music control. Use your MacBook for your studies only, leave your phone in your bag. It’s time to get your homework done.
7. Do Not Disturb feature
Too often, it’s not that we are unable to complete our homework, it’s that we lack the concentration to do so. We are more inclined to say, “can I pay someone to do my homework?” than to gain our focus after getting distracted for the tenth time in an hour. The Do Not Disturb feature on your Apple watch can help you to avoid unnecessary messages, phone calls, and notifications altogether. A perfect student helper.
8. Unlock any Mac computer
Your Apple watch can unblock any of your Mac computers as soon as you approach them. No doubts, it is pretty convenient, especially for those who always forget their passwords. Though it is also really cool. It looks like a glimpse into the future where you would be able to control the technologies with the thought of your mind. At least, that’s what it reminds me of. Overall, it’s quite a small detail, but still, it is worth mentioning.
