You can use it for Apple Pay to quickly buy a cup of coffee or a book. You can use Siri to have your watch react to your voice commands and provide you with information. And you can check the time, with one of dozens of customizable watch faces, where you can add complications to provide data and quick access to apps and features.

  1. Hello Kirk. I’m not sure if you’ve written about this, but Apple’s series 5 watch took a big leap in increase storage – to 32 gigs. But for reasons known only to Apple there is still a 2 gig limit on the amount of music which can be stored on the watch! No mention of this is made in any advertising I’ve seen, yet I‘ve verified this with two different calls to Apple Care. It seems disingenuous to advertise this dramatic increase in storage without mentioned only 2 gigs of it can be used for stored music. My imagination leads to me to believe Apple would rather have me stream music from the Apple Music for a monthly fee, than listen to music I already own. Your thoughts?
