Apple Watch enables you to send messages, read email and answer calls to your iPhone right from your wrist. The watch even gives you a gentle tap on the wrist so you won’t miss important notifications.

It will become your personal trainer on your wrist, encouraging you to sit less, move more and get some exercise every day. The watch tracks your daily activity and measure active calories burned, brisk activity and how often you’ve stood up to take a break from sitting. Apple Watch provides the detailed metrics you need during dedicated workout sessions for the most popular activities, such as walking, running and cycling.
