Apple Watch Series 4

I own the Apple Watch Series 4 44mm Aluminum.
Overall review:
  • It's just a watch. Nothing fancy, and nice to have.
  • Most things you can already do on your phone
    • But my phone is already a distracting device, so let's limit me even accessing it
Common Uses:
  • Finding my phone
    • Now that I'm not attached to my phone, I misplace my phone more often, but I'm ok with that
  • Removes me from the addiction/distraction of my phone
  • Easy access to a timer
    • I usually set timers so that I can help focus for a certain period of time
    • Notify myself when I need to do something in X minutes
      • For example: Remind me that I need to leave in 40 minutes
  • Health tracking keeps me accountable when used with exercise
  • Requires an iPhone
  • Enabling DND in watch, also enable it on phone. Alternative is to use Airplane mode
  • Airplane mode doesn’t have similar DND feature if “Turn off in 1 hour”
  • Glass seems to get easily scratched
Others Uses:
  • Airplane mode
    • For when I want my watch on to track my health, but not be distracted by notifications

Apple Watch Series 4 vs Apple Watch Series 3

Apple Watch Series 4 44m:
  • Larger screen size
  • Can fit more text on screen
  • Easier to read notifications
  • Thinner, and personally I find it more aesthetically better looking
