Apple Watch Series 5 | My (non-tech) Thoughts.


I feel like there is a pattern. Every year around this time I sit down and write a post about the latest gadget my boyfriend got me for my birthday. It might not be my birthday yet, but my boyfriend being him, he surprised me almost two weeks early. During a trip with his friends, he decided to get me the new apple watch series 5. I have been talking about it for a while, so it was the perfect gift. 

I have had it for a week now, so I thought today I would share with you my thoughts on it so far. 
Let's go into the specs first: I got the black aluminium, 44mm, cellular with the black sports band. And of course, I already ordered some other bands to switch it up. But this one is perfect for workouts or just wearing at home. It's super comfortable. 

I am so glad, that he went for the bigger size for me. I was debating to get the small one, but the bigger screen just makes so much more sense and I don't think it is too chunky. 

I also did not have an apple watch before, so there is no way for me to compare this series to the older ones. Anyway, I am not one to go into the tech details, so let's talk about why I think it's a great addition to my lifestyle right now. 

I limit screen time 
In the past week, I spend so much less time on my phone. I normally have it next to me all the time and I also check it constantly. I have my phone on silent most of the time, so I feel the need to check for new messages, calls or emails. And when I already have it in my hand, I tend to scroll through social media or the new-in section in Zara almost automatically. But now I know my watch will notify me about messages, calls and emails. That way I don't randomly check my phone. 

I don't take my phone everywhere
Because my watch has cellular, I can ditch my phone when going out. Of course, I still take it with me if I go to work on a day trip. But for shorter outings, like food shopping or going for a walk, I like to leave my phone at home. If I need to call someone or someone is trying to contact me, my watch got me covered.

Working out is so much more fun 
I have recently picked up working out again after being injured for the past 4 months (and becoming unfit as hell). And, at least for now, I am so much more motivated. Just pairing your earphones to your watch and not having to carry around your phone in the gym is a lifesaver! Plus: tracking your workouts is so motivating as well. 

Have you tried any apple watch yet?
Let me know your thoughts!

  1. I love that you can leave your phone behind for a workout and still listen to music!!! I've been debating whether I should invest in a Fitbit or an Apple Watch, and that's honestly such a game changer & makes me lean way more towards Apple xx
