Everyone talks about it, everyone wants it, everyone buys it. The Apple Watch is one of the most successful technological tools of the Cupertino company and the sales figures prove it.
In general, the smartwatch market is going through a particularly prosperous period. During 2018, sales of smartwatches increased by 61% and manufacturers saw their earnings rise by 51%, reaching a figure of 5 billion. The leaders of this market are three: Apple, Samsung and FitBit, the three players represent about 88% of sales with the Cupertino company absolute leader.
The importance of smartwatches can be seen from the American market. In the US, 16% of the adult population wears a smartwatch, an absolute development considering the 12% recorded in 2017. The offers of the chains that deal with electronics, in fact, are often aimed at this product. The range that goes from 18 to 34 years is the one that, mainly, chooses to buy a smartwatch and therefore enjoys a considerable boost. According to analysts, this figure is destined to change as the advent of Apple Watch Series 4 and its new features capable of monitoring the heart in real time could bring an older user base closer. Additionally, 15% of users use a smartwatch to control other electronic devices and appliances. The Apple Watch has therefore become a status symbol and we reveal the 7 reasons why it is important to buy it.
Apple Watch 4 leave your smartphone at home
Whoever buys one can no longer do without. With the Apple Watch 4 you can leave your smartphone at home and use the brand new eSim through the Vodafone OneNumber service and share your phone number and your offer (with Giga and minutes) with the eSim present in the Apple Watch (Series 4 GPS + Cellular) to stay connected even when the smartphone is not nearby. To activate it, just a couple of clicks from the App or from the vodafone.it website: for those who buy the service within 6 months, the first 3 are free, after which it costs 5 euros per month.
The new Apple Watch exceeds all expectations. try walking briskly or climbing a step: that tiny personal trainer that you have rolled up on your wrist is able to notice it and ask you if by chance you are interested in monitoring the results, and then give you a report at the end of the workout with exercise performed, calories consumed and heart rate recorded.
The automatic recognition of the training, in fact, it is not known with what magic, it recognizes exactly the activity carried out and provides warnings on when to start the training by giving retroactive credits.
There are also two new types of workouts, Yoga and Trekking, which track calories burned and minutes of exercise.
He is attentive to our safety
Apple Watch is able to understand if the person wearing it has fallen by analyzing the trajectory taken by the wrist and the acceleration of the impact.
At that point a notification arrives: “It seems you have fallen, do you need help?” and the double option, “Yes, but I’m ok” or “Call for help”.
In the latter case (or even if after the notification you remain motionless for more than 60 seconds), Apple Watch calls the emergency services and sends a message to the numbers that you have previously saved as emergency contacts.
With Apple Watch you can go back to using the walkie talkie, always with the same tool. If you are connected to wi-fi or a cellular network, just select who we want to talk to among our contacts and start a conversation, holding “pressed” the screen of the smartwatch and then releasing it to send.
If you have already devoted yourself to voice messages, this is the pro version: pure addiction.
Monitor our heart
With watchOS 5, the Apple Watch analyzes heart rhythm intermittently in the background and sends a notification if it detects abnormalities or if the heart rate rises or falls below a specified threshold.
And if the ECG function (the electrocardiogram that Apple Watch is able to carry out using simultaneously the data detected by the Digital Crown and the electric heart rate monitor positioned in the crystal back) in Italy for the moment is not yet available, the analysis of your heartbeat it is incredibly precise and fascinating.
The challenge to friends!
With Apple Watch you can challenge friends during gaming activities. Notifications during the day and reports at the end and at the beginning of the day make the question close the circles a point of principle with oneself and surprisingly, exploiting a subtle sense of guilt mixed with the taste of the challenge inherent in the human being, they manage to motivate you to move. plus – since “you have 5 minutes of brisk walking to close the circle of exercise”, what are you doing, don’t you go downstairs to have a coffee? For so little.
With Apple Watch, you have everything under control
Having an Apple Watch means having everything under control. This means that you can decide to receive notifications only for the boss’s emails, and not for the others, only for WhatsApp or social networks, because Apple Watch for you is free time and not work, or everything, because you do not want to lose sight of anything. of what’s happening on your phone. It’s all highly customizable: take advantage of it.
