The Apple Watch is another great weight loss gadget to invest in if you need notifications and other smart watch features on your wrist and reminders to be more active. The Apple Watch tracks steps, activity and reminds you to stand up and move every hour. A small progress ring on the watch face shows daily progress, so there is a handy reminder to do more and alerts to stand up and move at least once an hour. The watch also tracks workouts indoors and out and users can pair Bluetooth headphones to it to listen to music without carrying an iPhone on a workout.
Heart rate activity is also tracked, though not as frequent as the Fitbit Charge HR unless the users places it in workout mode. Users can also add other apps to the watch to start a run, monitor a workout and track food intake. The Apple Watch only works with the iPhone 5 and newer and it can also answer calls, act as a remote shutter for the iPhone, send almost any alert from your iPhone and more. There is no sleep tracking built-in, but you can use an app to track it. Battery life is about two days at most.
The Apple Watch Series 2 and newer are waterproof and includes a faster processor than the original. Here's a look at all the cool things the Apple Watch can do.
The Apple Watch Series 3 is $329 and up depending on the size you choose to buy and is available from Apple and other retailers.
