The third-generation Apple Watch 3 is an amazing health and fitness companion with intelligent coaching features, water resistance 50 meters and a new barometric altimeter that measures relative elevation. Apple Watch 3 comes in two models, one with GPS and cellular, and one with GPS, both featuring a 70 percent faster dual-core processor and new wireless chip.
Wholesome connectivity to ease and daily basis secure.
Tech for daily ease
Sleeping and tracking
Apple still doesn’t offer its own built-in sleep tracking mode but it is apparently in the works. For now, though, that means it can’t quite match Fitbit, Garmin, and others for offering the complete fitness tracking experience straight out of the box, but there are a bunch of apps that can bring the feature to the Watch. We’ve picked out the best sleep tracker apps for the Apple Watch so you don’t have to go hunting for them on the App Store.
Here, you’ll see a few options. You can have a couple of ever-updating playlists automatically sync music to your Watch when it’s charging. You can also manually add in songs by artist, album, and playlist just below that. Thankfully, Apple has made this process much, much easier than before. Previously, you had to create a playlist first before syncing over any music. Apple Music streaming now comes directly to your Apple Watch thanks to cellular support, but you can still add MP3s and pair it with some Air Pods for music. You’ll need to head over to the companion Watch app, then over to the Music section. Of course, you should get a good pair of Bluetooth headphones to listen to music. In fact, when you start playing a song on your Watch and there is no Bluetooth headphone connected it’ll throw up a little pop-up box asking you to sync some headphones. There’s also the Apple Watch Spotify app, too, in case you’re wondering what to do if you’re not an Apple Music subscriber. You’ll be able to add and play music to your Spotify library from within the app.
Alarming your timer
Setting an alarm on the Apple Watch isn’t actually as straightforward as it may seem – sure, going into the Alarms app on the watch itself and twiddling around with the Digital Crown is easy enough, but there’s plenty to delve into. For details on how to set an alarm on the Apple Watch and keep it silent or even set up Nightstand Mode, read our full guide. Timers, on the other hand, is actually very straightforward. No matter what event you’re clocking, simply heading into the Timers app and toggling how much time you want to track is about all there is to it.
One of the things Apple really pushes with the Apple Watch is bands. There are new bands released every few months, with new colors to match the season and your wardrobe. That’s why it quite appropriate having a look at what’s out there and taking advantage of the customization options. In the Apple Watch settings menu, turn on the Wrist Raise feature. Below, you’ll have a couple of options under ‘On Screen Raise Show Last App’. You can choose to show the last app while you’re in session, within two minutes of last use, within one hour of last use, or always. Now, when you raise your wrist you’ll see the last app you were using.
If you find yourself getting stressed in the day, you may find it useful to tap into the Apple Watch Breathe app. This allows you to follow the on-screen instructions and focus on your breathing for a select amount of minutes. It’s a handy wellness feature from Apple, and you can edit details such as how many breaths per minute you want to take, how many notifications you receive and how prominent the haptic feedback is through the Watch app on your iPhone.
Heart rate notifications
Apple is taking heart health more seriously, and one of the newer features is a notification when your heart rate is detected as lower or higher than it should be. You can enable it in the heart rate section of the companion app. When you turn it on, you’ll be asked to choose a threshold. Then, your Apple Watch will only alert you when you go past the threshold and appear to have been inactive for about 10 minutes. On top of that, it’ll look for signs that your elevated/falling heart rate is a longer-term problem, rather than a temporary blip brought on by something terrifying – like a horror movie. You triathlete, you. To date, the Apple Watch has let you down, but it’s gotten better, and you can now chain together workouts, which means less time rubbing those sweaty fingers around the screen. If you want to jump from one type of workout to another, rather than stopping the current one, swipe right and tap the + button to add a new one on.
Your move goal
The move goal is your calorie benchmark for each day, and while it’s a satisfying one to tackle, that battle gets a little old if it’s set too high or too low. Every so often, the Watch will nudge you to let you know how you’re getting on, but did you know you can alter the number directly from the watch? This is really handy for when you steadily want to ramp up your targets.
Apple made several improvements to Siri in watchOS 5, and most of them are in the Siri watch face. Through machine learning, Siri will now be able to serve up more contextual desired information, such as showing heart rate after a workout, or scores in sports if your favorite team is playing. However, waking Siri and chatting with the assistant has also improved. No longer do you activate things through “Hey Siri” – you simply need to enable the new wrist-raise option which automatically kickstarts the assistant. If that’s too Dick Tracy for you, pushing and holding the crown will also make Siri pipe up.
In order to make sure you’re getting the most out of your Apple Watch, you’re going to want to update it regularly. This is a fairly direct method to achieve, and you should get a pop-up on your iOS device each time there’s an update ready. To check on iOS, go to the My Watch tab in the Watch app, tap through to General and then go to Software update. Follow the instructions and, voila, you should be on your way. Just make sure to keep the Apple Watch on charge throughout.
Connectivity to other devices
Unlocking your Mac
If you’re fully kitted out with all the Apple gear, there’s also a way that you can use your Apple Watch to skip typing in a password on your Mac to get access, so long as you have a mid-2013 or a newer Mac that’s running macOS Sierra 10.12 or later. If you want to pair the two together, the first thing you need to make sure they are both signed in to the same iCloud account.
Unlocking Watch from your iPhone
If you didn’t do this in the initial setup process, you can still unlock your Apple Watch and iPhone at the same time without having to hammer in a passcode (if you’ve set one of those up). To do this, go to the Watch companion app, where you can toggle the Unlock with iPhone feature on or off. You need to be wearing the Watch for this feature to work, though.
“Ping your iPhone” feature
Lose your iPhone? Good thing you have your Apple Watch on because it can help you find your handset in a pinch. Swipe up to bring up the Control Center, look for the ‘Ping iPhone’ button and tap to be reunited with your iPhone. If you tap and hold the ‘Ping iPhone’ button, your iPhone’s LED flash will blink, giving you a visual guide in case the speaker gets too swaddled.
Power reserve mode
Draining power too fast? Swipe up on the main watch screen to bring up the Control Center. The first icon displays the current battery status. Press this to reveal the Power Reserve button. And if you’re finding this to be a consistent problem, it’s worth finding out how to get more out of your device throughout the day.
Swimming and ejecting
From Series 2 onward, the Apple Watch is waterproof and includes an eject mode to get rid of any water that’s left lurking inside after you’ve gone swimming. If you want to manually use this feature, swipe up from the main home screen to view the Apple Watch Control Center. Look for the water droplet icon and press it. You’ll then be prompted to twist the digital crown to eject the water. It’s actually a good idea to tap the droplet button before getting in the shower or pool (but don’t worry if you forget) as it also locks the screen, preventing it from confusing water droplets for your fingers.
The Digital Crown isn’t best placed for southpaws, who generally wear their watch on the right arm. However, you can have the Apple Watch flip its controls so that the crown works on the bottom left instead of the top right.

It felt very much like a luxury feature, not something that was necessary. It almost became something to be sad about, another time that was crucially a cycle of blissful, relaxed disconnection now tethered back to the real world. So if you want the best smartwatch on the market goes for the Apple Watch 3 but only get LTE if you want to leave your phone at home when working out but really feel the need to stay connected.
