Step Up Your Self-Care With This Must-Have Tech Accessory

  |  By Alison McGill

We’re talking about the Apple Watch Series 5—it's truly is a lifestyle game-changer. If you have been wondering if it’s worth the investment the answer is YES and never more than now as it will keep you focused, motivated and on track with your self-care.

Apple Watch is built around three key pillars: connectivity, health and fitness. I have been rocking an Apple Watch Series 5 since the beginning of #quarantinelife and it has made a huge difference in my day-to day-living. I have upped my steps, my workouts, my standing and been able to keep in touch easily texting and phoning when I’m on video calls. Here are some things I love about it and some unique features that will help you stay well, balanced and mindful, all things you need day-to-day, but especially planning a wedding day in 2020!

It’s LTE & WIFI Enabled This means you can make calls and easily connect once you sync with your iPhone. You can also connect through WIFI networks your iPhone recognizes. If you are LTE enabled, you can also call  local emergency services almost anywhere in the world just by pressing and holding the side button—even when your phone isn’t nearby.

The Emergency SOS Feature Is Amazing! Apple Watch gives you a quick and easy way to get help. Emergency SOS calls local emergency services, notifies your emergency contacts, sends your current location, and displays your Medical ID badge on the screen for emergency personnel. Get help by simply pressing and holding the side button.

There Are Many Incredible Health Apps There are many Apple Watch comes enabled with, these are just a few favourites. The Breathe app encourages you to set aside a few minutes a day to relax and focus on your breathing. Tap Start, inhale slowly as the animation grows, then exhale as it shrinks. Cycle Tracking helps you track any issues or irregularities with your menstrual cycle. The Noise app is targeted to hearing health and introduces an easy way for you to be proactive about it. The app uses the microphone to understand the sound levels around you, and it can notify you if it detects decibel levels that could impact your hearing. And lastly one of the best additions to Apple Watch is the ECG app which allows you to take a heat rhythm test at any time. The recording takes 30 seconds and at the completion of the ECG recording, you’ll receive a heart rhythm classification. It can indicate whether your heart rhythm shows signs of sinus rhythm, which means your heart is beating in a normal pattern, or of atrial fibrillation, a serious form of irregular heart rhythm.

It’s A Best (Fitness) Friend Apple Watch shows your daily movement as three simple metrics: Move, Exercise, and Stand. Together they make up the Activity rings that track your progress all day long. The goal is to close your rings each day, and Apple Watch is designed to motivate you every step of the way. There’s also the Workout app which allows you to measure all your favorite workouts—including cycling, yoga, swimming, hiking, high-intensity interval training, and everything in between. Set workout-specific goals, see your workout metrics, and now track your progress over time in the Activity app on your iPhone.
