Who knew I had two hands? Like a true millennial, I’ve always kept my phone in-hand when traveling, shopping at the grocery store or attending conferences. Now, I can easily check the weather when I land in a new city; view texts or emails during a meeting without rudely being on my phone; receive and make hands-free calls when I’m cooking at home; control music; and stay connected with notifications from Twitter, Facebook, Instagram and Snapchat. Apps for Uber and Delta Air Lines are also available on the watch, which have made my travels a breeze.
