How the New Apple Watch Makes Parenting Easier

While there are some dangers of modern technology, you simply need to learn how to use these devices properly. Most of us are familiar with tablets, computers, and smartphones, but there are other electronics that can help with parenting. Just the other day, Apple revealed several new products. The one that caught my interest was the Apple Watch Series 3. It now allows you to make phone calls right from the watch itself, without having your iPhone nearby. And if you’re not sure who’s calling you, you can always use do a people lookup. You just can’t underestimate the convenience of this handy device for parents.

Phone Calls from Anywhere

The Apple Watch can be used without your iPhone nearby.
You no longer have to worry about keeping your iPhone on you to make calls on your Apple Watch.

In the past, if you wanted to make a phone call from your Apple Watch, you needed to have your iPhone on you. With the series 3, though, you can make a call while your child is playing a game on your phone in another room. You also won’t have to worry about giving teachers, coaches, and babysitters a new phone number just for your Watch. It’ll use the same number that’s associated with your iPhone.

Less to Carry on You

When you’re getting your children to daycare or school, then rushing off to work, you don’t want to have to remember to bring your phone, too. Because it’s attached to your wrist, the Apple Watch is almost impossible to leave behind. It’s also much easier to access apps and texts from your wrist than digging your phone out of your pocket.

Monitor Your Fitness Levels

With the Series 3, the Apple Watch has several new fitness features. It now has a virtual coach, increase water resistance, and more. Because keeping up with your job, spouse, and children can be so exhausting, parents don’t always have time to exercise. However, the Apple Watch can keep track of how many steps you take a day and motivate you to push yourself even further.

Stay Connected

If you choose to purchase an Apple Watch for your child as well, they’ll experience all of these great features too. Plus, it’ll be easier to stay in touch with them. Kids might not hear their phone go off in their pocket or bag, but they’ll certainly notice that you’re calling when they have the Apple Watch. You can also go through their device later on and run a people lookup to make sure they’re not talking to strangers.
