Apple Watch questions


Recommended Posts

So our daughter number two was in Belize and her iPhone went in Davy Jones locker and all the Rice in South America did no good .

So she used a friends phone to contact daughter number one as that was the only number she could recall. Some of her travel mates asked if she had an Apple Watch .

My thoughts were the watch worked off your phone , but checking online it seems somehow you can text without the phone ? 

I prefer a mechanical watch with Swiss movements although I have a few quartz ones I love too , so what’s the deal with those Apple Watches ? 

thanks oh and apples whole water rating is a crock of crap, hers was under maybe two minutes and it’s not covered anyways ….

I don't have an apple watch, so can't comment there. But I see people control their music outside for parties from it, text from it, etc. I know someone who was in Vegas on vacation and texting with a girl using his cell phone. His apple watch was back at home where his wife was reading them!

You can text with the watch if the phone is on and close enough to the watch OR you pay for a separate data plan for just the watch then you don’t need the phone at all. 

Thanks . The Mrs said just to get a separate burner phone as a back up seems like a cheap way to go .

I have a data plan on my Apple Watch. Even if not on a data plan and not near her phone she may be able to use the iMessage function if she is within range of another iPhone or internet connection. I can’t recall how it works but iMessage works in a lot of unique instances. Heck, I could use it on a cruise with no data or WiFi connection and message my wife on the other end of the ship and people back home. But the watch with a data plan is a good back up. I hunted a few PM sits without the phone and just wearing the watch for emergency use. Was nice to disconnect.
