I had been wanting to get an Apple Watch for a while. Apple recently released the Apple Watch Series 2 which has the GPS and is waterproof. In case you are interested in getting one, I decided to share my Apple Watch Series 2 review.
I’ve been getting back into working out and I wanted a fitness watch to track my workouts. I decided to go with an Apple Watch over a Fitbit because I love the way all of my Apple products sync up together and that I can glance at texts and emails as they come in. The one thing that was holding me back was the price. I figured I’d wait until the end of the year and ask for it for my birthday or Christmas.
Two weeks ago, I received an email saying that Target had a sale! They had $70 off all Apple Watch Series 2 watches and an additional 5% off if you use your Target Red credit card! Sold! With all of the discounts, I saved about $100! It is on sale again this week so if you want one, head over to Target!
Setting it up was so easy. I used my iPhone and scanned the watch and it automatically synced up all of my apps and accounts. I’m able to sync up my activity on my watch to the My Fitness Pal app so I am able to keep track of my calories in and calories out. One of my favorite features of the Apple Watch is that if I am sitting at a meeting at work, I can glance at my watch to see if I received an important text from my husband or my parents.
As a tool for my workouts, it’s amazing! In addition to tracking my workouts and activity, I use the timer on the watch for my BBG workout. For BBG, you do a circuit of exercises for a set amount of time and the timer buzzes my wrist to let me know the session is over. Another great feature is that I can also listen to my music and playlists on my watch with wireless headphones. It makes my workouts so streamlined without having a phone strapped to my arm and wires flying everywhere as I move.
Last week, I went to Trader Joe’s and had my twins with me. When it came time to pay, I was able to flash my Apple Watch to pay. You can also do that with boarding passes and movie passes that are purchased on the Fandango app. I love how my watch has added convenience to my life. It may be small but I appreciate the ease of payment especially when I am out with my kids. I also like how it helps me keep my healthy lifestyle in check.
If you are thinking about getting an Apple Watch, I highly recommend it. (If you are able to take advantage of Target’s sale price, go for it!)
