The Apple Watch has been creating a lot of headlines lately, especially with several models now being shipped to customers. The Apple Watch in particular is very suitable for business users. Here are a few reasons why using the Apple Watch for business is a good idea.
Alerts and Notifications
Whether you are using emails or you want the latest updates on the stock market, Apple Watch can display all the suitable notifications for you. You no longer have to take your phone out of your pocket every few minutes just to stay up to date. In an economy as competitive as it is today, getting the latest notifications as quickly as possible will give you that competitive edge you need to stay ahead.
A lot of new apps are also being added to the Apple Watch, which means it can now display more than just emails, messages and notifications from the standard Stock app. Bloomberg and other news outlets, for instance, allow you to set notifications for select keywords and have them displayed on your Apple Watch whenever there is a news that fits your search parameters.
Design and Style
Features aside, the Apple Watch is one stylish smartwatch to own. It looks sleek when worn on your wrist and can be an interesting conversation opener. People – and perhaps clients – will ask whether that is an Apple Watch you are wearing; the rest is up to you.
The sleek design of the Apple Watch also works great with formal attires. A lot of other smartwatches available on the market don’t really have that ‘business’ look to them, but the Apple watch is made with business users in mind. If you want the more trendy look, you can always opt for the Apple Watch Sport.
Control Your Business Process with Apple Watch
SalesForce and a number of other mainstream CRM suites are beginning to support Apple Watch. This means you can do more than just send or read emails on your watch. You can quickly pull customer information to your watch as you are making a phone call, creating a much smoother conversation and a more pleasant customer experience in general.
Evernote for Apple Watch allows you to quickly dictate notes and sync them to the cloud. You can actually share notes with colleagues on the go, without having to rely on your phone or your laptop. Aside from quick notes, you can also view old notes or search for keywords.
App in the Air is even more comprehensive, giving you the ability to organize business trips rather easily. You can keep information on your next flights, along with details about the gate, departure time and many more, on your Apple Watch. No more missing flights!
Of course, the Apple Watch can also be used as a PowerPoint remote. You can now present your best work without carrying a bulky laser pointer or other devices to move between slides. Simply swipe on your Apple Watch and PowerPoint will instantly display the next slide.
