The Apple Watch has been on the market for more than a year and a half. During that time, we have seen two generations of the gadget and three major updates of the watchOS operating system.

How the Apple Watch can be used without the iPhone

Originally considered an accompanying gadget for the iPhone, the Apple Watch has now become an independent device.

Useful Apple Watch features:

  • Time tracking
  • Activity tracking
  • Workout help
  • Breathing and relaxation
  • Music right on your wrist
  • Contactless payments
  • Apple TV control
  • Siri, weather, special offers
  • Autonomy

The device battery will last longer after a charging session if the watch is not connected to an iPhone, avoiding all the notifications about every missed message or call. Those who used to charge their Apple Watches every night can now count on two days of autonomous work.
