Why You Should Consider Buying an Apple Watch Series 1 Now

A couple of weeks ago, Apple introduced the Apple Watch Series 3. While the Series 3 sports a number of new features and upgrades over previous versions of the watch, it’s not necessarily the best choice for everyone. The truth is that previous versions are not only very powerful but their prices have also been decreased, making them more affordable options. For instance, the price of the Series 1 Watch now starts at just $329. Given the new price, if you’ve thought about investing in an Apple watch… and even if you haven’t, this is the perfect time to purchase the Series 1. Here’s what you can expect from the Series 1:

Track Your Health & Wellness

The Apple Watch offers advanced health and wellness features that give you the complete picture of how you’re doing. Stand, Move, and Exercise rings visualize your daily progress showing you if you’re sitting too much and exercising enough. A workout app allows you to choose from a variety of workouts and measures your effort accordingly. This way, you can track the length of your workout and calories burned. The health app heightens your awareness of your overall health, giving you daily summaries of your resting, walking, and workout recovery heart rate.

Keep In Touch

Paired with your iPhone, the Apple Watch makes it easier to keep in touch. Message notifications come right to your wrist and allow you to respond in a number of fun ways, including emojis. You can also see who’s calling and even answer using your watch. Finally, email notifications allow you to see the sender and subject line. By tapping on the notification, you can read the full email.

Stay Up-to-Date

Calendar notifications alert you when an invitation comes through or when an event is coming up. Using Siri, you can also schedule set up a meeting or event right from your Watch. News apps can help you stay on top of what’s happening around the world.

Be More Efficient

With the help of several features and apps, the Apple Watch lets you get things done more efficiently. Apple Pay, for example, let’s you make purchases by simply tapping your watch to a contactless payment terminal—no need to rummage around your wallet or purse for your credit card. Using simple commands, you can ask Siri to send messages or remind you of a meeting or to-do. Finally, gentle vibrations from the Maps app let you know when to turn so you don’t have to keep your eye on your phone when you’re getting around.

With all these great features and reduced price point, this is the perfect time to invest in a Series 1 Apple Watch. If you’re not too fussed about having the latest technology and are new to owning a smartwatch, you’ll likely find the Series 1 to be more than enough.
