10 Coolest Things You Can Do with Your Apple Watch Right Now

The Apple Watch has become the wristwatch for the 21st century professional. Its applications when it comes to maintaining your health and schedule are already widely known. However, just like any Apple product, there are many hidden features and quirks of the Apple watch that are not immediately apparent. Today, we decided to go explore every nook and cranny and turn over every stone to bring you the ten coolest things that you can do with your Apple Watch. Without further ado, let’s get into it.

Luxury Apple Watch Band Caiman Series in blue

1. Level Up Your Apple Watch Band

In order to give your Apple Watch a real luxury touch, you have to use the most impactful customization option at hand, changing the Apple Watch band. Longvadon’s Caimen Series watch bands are some of the most premium watch bands that the entire market has to offer. Made from genuine bovine leather, the watch bands are an absolute treat to use and really add a lot of personality to your Apple Watch. The crocodile-embossing brings an exotic touch to the watch bands as well. They are available in a wide range of Apple Watch band sizes. If you do not know how to change your watch band, you can use this guide to remove your rubber watch band and get a real luxury leather watch band by Longvadon.

Apple watch postpone time application

2. Who Said You Can't Buy More Time?

For many of us, the ability to be on time doesn't come easy. An interesting and little known software feature that Apple has introduced is the ability to postpone your time up to 59 minutes. So, when the real time is 8:30 AM, your clock will be showing 9 AM. You might be able to make that early morning class after all. It also must be mentioned that the proper time will still be tracked by the watch and all your notifications will show the correct time. Even though this feature might seem a little too quirky, it really works!

Apple Watch running functionality

3. Take Your Watch for A Run

Since the Apple Watch already has a built-in GPS, there’s no need for you to even take your iPhone with you. This is actually a godsend because you don’t have to worry about your phone slipping out of your workout clothes while running. The GPS+Cellular model lets you leave your iPhone at home and you can answer calls or texts right from your Watch without your iPhone being in the vicinity.

Apple Watch room key

4. Use It as a Futuristic Hotel Key

There are free apps on the App Store that let you use a feature that feels frankly space age. All you have to do is essentially use the Watch itself as a key card. Right now, there are only a few hotels that are using this feature so you can check with them first and ask if they offer this feature. What is interesting is the fact that this has massive applications beyond just opening your hotel door. Theoretically, the Apple Watch could be used to gain access to places like cars, public transit stations, or even your own home!

Apple Watch walkie talkie app

5. Walkie-Talkie With Your Inner Child

We all remember having Walkie-Talkie toys as kids. Being able to communicate with someone else the same way Arnold Schwarzenegger did, felt so cool. Bonus points if your childhood was not spent with a smartphone in your back pocket all the time. If you want to resurrect that feeling of fun, the Apple Watch offers a Walkie-Talkie feature where two people wearing an Apple Watch are able to communicate with each other. This is essentially done through the FaceTime app on your iPhone so you will have to set that up first.

Apple Watch pay

6. Spending Money Just Got Too Easy

One of the most tedious parts of using Apple Pay to pay for stuff is the fact that you have to pull your phone out of your pocket. The whole exercise seems redundant because there’s no difference between pulling your card out of your pocket. However, now that you can use Apple Pay with your Apple Watch as well, there’s a whole new level of convenience attached to it. All you need to do is to go to the payment options section on your Apple Watch and place it near the reader.

Apple Watch waterproof

7. Water Resistance to the Depths

One of the most interesting applications of the Apple Watch is the fact that it is supposed to be the ultimate machine to use on an adventure. That means that it needs to be durable and survive water and dust exposure. The good news is that if you have a model that comes after the original or the Series 1, you will be able to enjoy water resistance. They can be submerged in water at depths of 50 meters without malfunctioning. In fact, the Apple Watch Series 7 is rated IP6X dust resistant as well.

Apple Watch maps

8. Use Maps to Get Out of Sticky Situations

Imagine being on the back of a motorcycle and you have been given the job of navigator. If you know anything about motorcycle riders, you know that they like to go fast. In such as situation, you would most probably not like to take your iPhone out and risk dropping it. The simple solution is the fact that the Apple Watch model with GPS-equipped is also able to do the same thing for you completely independently. In fact, the watch sends out different notifications whenever a turn approaches, making navigation much more hands-off.

Apple Watch draw

9. Draw Like Rembrandt (or Picasso)

Okay, so this is a feature that may not have many practical applications; Drawing on such a small screen means that you are quite limited in terms of your canvas size. However, they do say that creativity loves constraint. So, if you were the kid in school who could always be found doodling, you will love this feature. A boring train ride won’t be so boring after all. To add to that, you can send your creative masterpieces to any other Apple Watch as well.

Apple Watch Siri

10. Employ Siri as Your Personal Assistant

One of the best features of the Apple Watch is the fact that it can enhance the capabilities of features that already exist on your iPhone. Siri is a wonderful example of that. Previously, the effect of having a virtual assistant always with you was always dampened by the fact that you had to hold your phone as well while doing it. With the Apple Watch, the whole experience becomes completely seamless as you can now send text messages without ever typing a word and even create routes for yourself. It is important to note that the watch will still be needed to be connected to the internet.

These are some of the coolest things that you can do with your Apple Watch. Interestingly enough, there are a lot more we found that we could not add to the list. It is highly recommended that you take a little bit more time to really explore the powerful functionality of all that your Apple Watch is able to offer you. There will only be more and more for your check out.
