7 Ways Of Using Smart Watches For Better Travel

Time Management

There is a concept that while traveling you do not need to pay attention to time. It is true when chilling out on the beach. But as many travelers know, no matter where you are visiting, you need to keep an eye on the time. Most people these days usually check their phones for the time. And while on the phone they might see new notifications, check, and get caught up in social media. This becomes not very efficient.
To check your phone you have to get it out of your pocket or bag, also not efficient. That is why a watch is a good thing to have during travel. You can easily check the time without getting too distracted. On a smartwatch, you can still stay connected by sending and receiving a quick text and get information such as the weather.

A notification from your smartwatch can remind you of your upcoming meetings, events, and tours. 
While out and around, you likely do not have your calendar in front of you. When you are dealing with kids, taking photos, or commuting a heads up that there is something coming up right on your wrist is great. It has been a saver for me and the family with all of the schedule juggling we have to do these days with online meetings and classes starting at various times throughout the day. A simpler reminder goes a long way to getting things done off of your to-do list as well.

Paying at a store

Paying with your smartwatch while you're on a call or have other things in your hand makes it even more convenient than credit cards. Similar to where you do not have to pull out your phone to look at time and notifications, you do not need to pull out or find your wallet to pay for your purchases. 


It's a bit challenging to carry your smartphone while running or in the gym. A smartwatch can keep track of your pace and your heart rate to make sure you are getting the benefits of the workout. It can also track your laps, amount of steps you ran, and activity-specific stats. 
It is also very easy to change tracks or skip songs on your playlist on your watch. It is a great remote for music listening. 


Watch notifications can go beyond keeping you organized with a calendar. You can stay informed even when your smartphone is away via your wrist. You can check the latest weather, flight information, local news, sports scores, and any other widget available for the watch from your favorite apps.

Stay in touch with a tap

Text and make calls with ease. You can write out or dedicate the text to Siri for quick responses. And with an available cellular connection, you can do it all without your phone.


A smartwatch these days can track your heart rate, sleep, and pulse rate. All of these help you keep track of your vitals on regular basis to keep you in the know.
The instant information about how many calories you burn or the distance you walk could be of great use in striding to better overall health. Moreover, the newest Apple Watch (6 series) is able to measure your blood oxygen level. Your blood oxygen level is a key indicator of your overall wellness. 

Smartwatches can also track the menstrual cycle, protect your hearing from loud sounds, and practice mindfulness.

Additionally, something unexpected, is that the Apple Watch automatically detects when you’re washing your hands and encourages you to go for a full 20 seconds. It can even remind you to wash them right when you get home.

Moreover, checking your watch during a conversation is bad, checking your phone is worse. With a smartwatch, you can go back to the lesser of the two with a click glance at your watch for messages and time.
