Let’s be honest… I’m a writer who sits at her desk all day and can surely use more exercise. The Apple Watch keeps a record of your daily movements and makes you more cognizant of how active you really are. It tracks your activity in three parts: amount of calories burned, how often you’re exercising based on your heart rate and how often you’re standing to get blood flowing. You can set goals for each and the watch will send you subtle reminders, telling you if you haven’t stood up within the hour, and congratulate you if you’ve reached your targets. Just wait until you see the difference between days you’re at the office and days you’re on-site at a conference. I know several planners who use Fitbit devices for similar data, but the Apple Watch has the upper hand. With a screen on your wrist showing a graph based on your movements, you can easily see a visual representation of your achievements or areas of improvement.
