Hidden Gems: Lesser-Known Features of Apple Watch  🤫

We know you love your Apple Watch – it's sleek, it's stylish, and it's packed with incredible features that make your life easier and more connected. But did you know that beyond its shiny surface and basic functionalities, your Apple Watch is hiding a treasure trove of lesser-known features? At iSTRAP, we don't just provide you with stylish Apple Watch straps and accessories; we're here to spill the beans on the coolest hidden gems that your wrist companion has to offer.


1. The Magical Water Eject Feature: Picture this: you accidentally spill your drink on your Apple Watch. Panic sets in, right? Fear not! Your Apple Watch has a built-in water eject feature. Simply turn the Digital Crown (that's the little spinny thing on the side) while it's facing away from your watch. This activates a tone that vibrates the water out of the speaker holes. It’s like magic, right?

2. Fall Detection That Has Your Back: Apple Watch is not just smart; it’s got your safety at heart too. If you take a tumble, your Apple Watch can detect it and automatically send an alert, asking if you’re okay. If you don’t respond within a certain timeframe, it can even call emergency services for you. Now, that's a watch that’s got your back – literally!

3. Handwashing Timer for the Hygiene Enthusiasts: In the age of constant sanitising, your Apple Watch helps you stay on top of your hand hygiene game. It detects when you’re washing your hands and sets a timer for 20 seconds, ensuring you're scrubbing away all those germs. Plus, it gives you a friendly nudge if you bail out early. Clean hands and a clean watch – what’s not to love?

4. The Mindfulness Breathe App: Life can get pretty hectic, but your Apple Watch can be your zen master. The Breathe app guides you through deep-breathing exercises, helping you relax and stay centred. It’s like having a mini meditation session right on your wrist. Take a moment, breathe, and let your Apple Watch be your mindfulness guru.

5. Remote Camera Control for Insta-Worthy Shots: Ever struggled to fit everyone into the frame for that perfect group photo? Your Apple Watch can act as a remote control for your iPhone’s camera. Set up your phone, frame your shot, and click away, all from the comfort of your wrist. Say cheese!

6. Custom Replies for Quick Responses: When you’re on the go, typing out messages can be a hassle. Luckily, your Apple Watch offers custom replies that you can set up. No more generic responses – personalise your replies to match your style and let your watch do the talking for you. Effortlessly chic, right?

7. Theatre Mode for Uninterrupted Movie Nights: We all love a good movie night, but the glow of notifications can be distracting. Enter Theatre Mode. With a quick swipe and tap, your Apple Watch goes silent and prevents the screen from lighting up, ensuring you won’t disturb anyone during the movie. It’s the perfect way to enjoy films without any interruptions.

8. Siri’s Hidden Tricks: Sure, you know Siri can set reminders and answer your questions, but did you know it can also translate languages? Ask Siri to translate a phrase for you, and voila – instant language skills. Plus, Siri can even do currency conversions and math problems. Your personal assistant just got a whole lot smarter.
