50+ Experts Reveal 3 Reasons To Get an Apple Watch – FindTheDecision

“Should you get an Apple Watch or not?

To answer this question, I asked dozens of tech experts and prolific bloggers to reveal what is best about this watch and what to look for by asking them a simple question:

‘If you had to pick only 3 reasons to get an Apple Watch, what 3 reasons would you choose?'”

Lots of good reasons to buy an Apple Watch. The one that finally convinced me to wear it all the time is one that none of the experts mention: the ability to unlock my Macs without entering my password when I’m wearing the Apple Watch. I don’t know how many times I have to unlock one or both of my Macs each day. The Apple Watch lets me do this automatically when I press a key. It’s a real time-saver, and it’s allowed me to use a more secure password on my computers. (Yes, I made a compromise with a not-entirely-secure password in the past because it was so annoying to type a long password a dozen or more times a day.)

And the guy who says:

Don’t buy an Apple Watch. It’s overpriced and the battery life sucks.

I don’t understand. I get to the end of the day with my watch around 75%. If I do a walk using the Workout app, it might be a few points lower. This said, if you have cellular on all day, you won’t make it even halfway through the day, but I don’t think that’s what he’s talking about.

  1. I was initially attracted to the Watch for exactly that feature that Kirk finds so useful.

    Then when I got it, I discovered all of my Macs are too old to be able to do that 🙁
    I won’t say what I think about Apple products’ rapid obsolescence.

    Oh well, nice watch though 🙂

  3. According to Apple the Mac needs to be mid 2013 onwards to use the ‘unlock with Apple watch’ feature. So, that’s very nearly 5 years ago.

    If it was running the latest OS you may have a point. I’m guessing it’s possibly a hardware requirement, disappointing I agree, as I to would like to be able to do this, but is it really obsolescence?
