I’m Emma and I’m addicted to Apple…
I do love Apple for it’s simplicity and their products are great to use (my friend A always slates it… until he uses a Macbook himself!). I’ve got;
- iPhone 6
- Macbook Pro
- iPad Air
- … and my Apple Watch!
After some debating, researching and saving – I’ve treated myself to the Rose Gold Apple Watch Sport 38mm with the lavender band. Yaaaay!
Now here’s something I found quite odd on Pinterest – there was only a very small handful of useful pins to do with the Apple Watch. Whaaaaaa?
Ok… so the pins I did find (which were useful) were the following;
- 50 Apple Watch Tips & Tricks by TechSmartt
- Getting Started with the Apple Watch by The Wonder of Tech
- These are your must have apps for your Apple Watch by Refinery29
What apps do I have on the watch?
- The Apple basics i.e. emails/messages/phone calls/
- Tinder (this is only the messages rather than swiping guys!)
- We Heart It
- Human (activity and calories tracker)
- BBC News
- Slack (messenger system for work)
- Facebook Messenger
It’s not the sort of device to do excessive searching, especially on Facebook or Pinterest – but I like to keep track of my steps especially as I walk EVERYWHERE! and it’s better to have message alerts on my wrist rather than my phone constantly next to me… even if Hannah sends me messages while I’m at work asking for mum’s number as her phone is all the way upstairs and she’s too lazy to get it (side note: she ended up going upstairs to get it!)
Have you got any apps you use that I should try out? Drop me a line on the comments below 🙂
I love the fact I can change the look and the layout of the Apple Watch pending on my mood!
But another thing I found very little of (and was picky about) was the lack of backgrounds that looked nice with the watch. I love changing my watch face but was gutted about the backgrounds 🙁 I can have my own photos but these are from your “favourites” on your phone – but I want something quite colourful… a bit like Broad City!!
So… as a freebie to you guys – here’s some backgrounds I’ve mocked up for the Apple Watch! I’d love to see some photos of you guys having these as your backgrounds 🙂 if you do want to make your own on photoshop – the size for the 38mm screen is 272×340.
If there’s anything particular you want – feel free to drop me a message and I’ll be happy to mock something up for you!
