As paradoxical as it sounds, the Apple Watch is actually a really fantastic tool for disconnecting. Instead of getting sucked into your phone every time you check a single text, you can field all of your notifications with just a flick of the wrist.
There are also countless cool little things you can do with an Apple Watch that’ll make your life infinitely better, like pay for your coffee with just a wave of your wrist using Apple Pay (which, frankly, never stops feeling like magic), unlock your MacBook with just your presence, remotely control your iPhone’s camera so you can get that perfect group pic, set a series of silent alarms that’ll buzz you awake without bothering your partner, and so much more.
If you’ve been on the fence about whether or not to join Team Smartwatch, maybe this will help you make up your mind. Right now the Series 1 — the classic, most cost-effective model — is $70 off at Macy’s for the holiday season.
