Between e-mails, phone calls, media lists and tweets, we might as well attach ourselves to our phones and computers at work. In April 2015, it became possible to do just that with Apple’s latest product, the Apple Watch! “The Apple Watch is unlike any device we’ve ever made,” boasted Apple when it first debuted.
Within just the few short months that it has been out, the new Watch has become a game changer for professionals, combining groundbreaking new technology, attractive aesthetics, and our favorite trademark apps to make it an office must-have!
Not convinced that it is the perfect device for us PR professionals? Here are 3 reasons why I think the Apple Watch is a must-have for everyone in our field:
1. In PR, constant correspondence is a vital aspect of the workday. With the watch, emails, phone calls, and iMessages are displayed on the face of Apple Watch, allowing PR employees to communicate more promptly and easily. Plus, important messages are far less likely to be overlooked – the Apple Watch physically “taps” us to indicate a new notification!
2. Siri is back and better than ever. The intelligent personal assistant every publicist needs is right at the lift of a wrist. Simply raise Apple Watch and say “Hey Siri,” to access a virtual portal of endless information and capabilities the iPhone so brilliantly introduced. Siri for Apple Watch allows PR pros to multitask hands-free- reminding us of our meetings, giving us directions to events, and essentially managing our lives, all from our wrists!
3. Add sleek sophistication to your workday wardrobe! The Watch Sport is the perfect option for the active professional with an athletic style. The Watch Edition offers elegant designs with 18-karat gold for the buyer with luxurious taste. The third Watch, and the most popular, The Classic Watch, is sleek and refined for the practical person looking for a fashionable and functional accessory.
