Learn how to use your Apple Watch, the waterproof smartwatch with built-in apps that sync to your iPhone & help you stay healthy (hello activity rings!)… while you send text messages, take phone calls, stream music, talk to SIRI, & more.

Class Description

The brand new Apple Watch is out! Come take a look at this new technology and see how it can be used to enhance your daily life in Jamie’s Apple Watch Basics Class.

Learn how the activity rings can help you stay healthy, the sleep tracker can improve your sleep, and the spousal mute button can boost your love life!

I may have fibbed a bit about that last part, but you WILL learn how the Apple Watch’s ECG capabilities can act as an early warning system to detect and alert you to possibly serious heart conditions such as atrial fibrillation.

We’ll also show off fun activities like taps, heartbeats, drawings, animated emoticons, and a lot more.
