Apple Watch SE is the latest work of the smart watch “Apple Watch”, which is a hot topic now, and is a reasonable and cost-effective model that boasts moderate performance while keeping the price down.
According to what I heard, the performance is between the previous Series 5 and the previous Series 4 (I don’t know if it matches).
GPS model? Cellular model?
Briefly, whether it is possible to communicate with Apple Watch alone . The GPS model cannot communicate without a paired iPhone nearby, but the Cellular model can communicate independently without an iPhone.
The sizes for 40mm and 44mm
According to the clerk, 44mm is often selected for men with thick fingers and large size. However, I was told that 40mm is more popular among men . In fact, only a small number of 44mm was left in store inventory, and 40mm was out of stock.
Also, it seems that women basically choose 40mm. When a woman with thin arms attaches 44mm, it seems that the stylishness will be reduced a little because all the arms are hidden by the display.
People who visit the store seem to try on both sizes, but it seems that few people have the impression that 40mm is difficult to operate. So, it seems that there is no problem even if you select the size visually when you actually attach it .
However, if you are a man with thick fingers and are thinking about 40mm, it may be better to try it at the store once.
It’s a wide range of band choices that you’re familiar with on the Apple Watch, but it’s still alive on the SE.
Normally The Apple Watch SE comes with a battery life of about 18 hours. Apple assumes this “all-day” battery life on a usage of 45 min on app, 90 time-checks, and a 60 min with music playback through Bluetooth. But sometimes Apple Watch SE battery drains faster, when using the watch as a phone or while doing workouts.
Here are some Apple’s battery life estimates(assumptions) for daily activities:
- Audio playback – Up to 10-hours
- Streaming music/audio over LTE – Up to 7-hours
- Taling over LTE – Up to 2-hours
Indoor – Up to 10-hours
Outdoor (with GPS) – Up to 6-hours
Outdoor (with GPS + LTE) – Up to 5-hours
Apple says that it usually takes 1.5 hours to charge the Apple Watch SE from 0% to 80%, and 2.5 hours to charge to 100%
So, now let me explain how my basic Apple Watch is used.
- Check the time
- Check the calendar
- Control and select music
- Make payment at a convenience store
- Check the LINE you received
Functions/apps that were convenient to actually use
The Apple Watch needs to be paired with its own iPhone, and by doing so, the schedule registered on the iPhone is automatically acquired and can be checked on the Apple Watch.
If you set the calendar to be displayed on the dial screen, you can check the next appointment at the same time as checking the time.
It also retrieves the contents of Google Calendar, so you can easily manage your work schedules on your Apple Watch. It also displays the location of the conference room, so you can check it instantly no matter where you are in the next meeting, which is very convenient!
Personally, it’s pretty appealing to be able to complete reminders from the Apple Watch as well. Lol
Of course, if you set up appointment notifications on your iPhone, you’ll also get notifications on your Apple Watch! Therefore, there is almost no need to worry about losing your schedule.
The music function is as convenient as the calendar function.
The content is simple; you can control the music of the paired iPhone. It’s useful for people who find it annoying to take out the iPhone to change the music.
- Volume adjustment
- Play / stop music
- Settings for shuffle playback, repeated playback, etc.
It’s also very compatible with wireless earphones, and even if you can’t operate with earphones, you can handle everything from your Apple Watch, so you can completely control your music cordlessly.
If you’re looking for wireless earphones right now, Bose’s Quiet Comfort Earbuds are for you! Since some of the disadvantages of earphones can be covered with Apple Watch, it is very compatible and it is a very favorite combination!
You can check the LINE that arrived on your iPhone on your Apple Watch.
This is quite convenient.
First and foremost, you can check the content of the message on your Apple Watch. When you receive a notification, your Apple Watch will vibrate to let you know, and you can open the screen to see what the message is about.
Therefore, there is no need to open the smartphone and check the contents one by one.
You can also reply from the Apple Watch if it is a fixed phrase. It would have been nice if I could register the text myself, but I’m looking forward to the update!
Also, if you use the microphone function, you can reply freely.
I don’t think I have a chance to use it outside, but if I’m at home, I can reply by just talking with a microphone, so it’s easy!
If you register your email address, you can check your email on your Apple Watch.
Also, as with LINE, simple fixed phrases are registered, so you can select from them and reply, or you can talk to the microphone and reply with the contents
Basically, it seems that it will be used just for reading emails, but you can rest assured that you will not have to worry about overlooking important emails.
You can see the map of the surrounding area on your Apple Watch
Due to the small display, you can really only see the roads around you, but that’s enough. You are here in private on the issue is not displayed, but properly their Ile position, direction you know Datte.
Also, if you tap a station, you can use quite convenient functions such as knowing the train information of that station.
The map function was very useful on my recent trip. I was able to reach the destination fairly smoothly by grasping the position of the destination to some extent and checking it with the Apple Watch when looking at the detailed roads as appropriate!
Jordan transfer information
If you want to check the time of the train you use often, the transfer information in Jordan is very convenient.
You can check the transfer information that you often check on your smartphone on your Apple Watch!
However, note that you cannot select the boarding station or getting-off station on your Apple Watch, and you can only check the routes you have registered in advance or the routes you searched for on your smartphone!
You also have to upgrade to the paid version to get the full functionality. I only tried using it during the paid version of the trial period, but I found the My Route function to be particularly useful.
If you register your favorite route, you can check the information of the next train on your Apple Watch at any time.
It’s quite convenient, so I’m convinced that you need to pay.
Of course, the free version can be fully utilized, but if you often use the train, why not consider using the paid version?
As for the camera function, it’s not very practical, but it’s interesting, so I’ll introduce it!
So what you can do is control your iPhone’s camera with your Apple Watch.
Finally, If Apple Watch SE is your first smartwatch, purchasing this will definitely make you happy!
This includes all the modern features such as a big screen,swappable bands, next gen sensors, a good battery life. The best reason to buy this is the price of Watch won’t break your budget.
