<b>You got an Apple Watch! Yea! But how on Earth do you use it?!</b><i> <br />The Apple Watch looks pretty snazzy, right? People have told you all about the cool features: like if you fall it will automatically call for help! They've told you about how you can send a text from your wrist. How you can even make a phone call.</i><br /><br />That's all great. But how do you actually use it?!<br /><br />As amazing as all the new features are, it's not quite as easy to use as an iPhone; the lack of buttons, the smaller screen, and general UI can make a frustrating initial experience.<br /><br />It looks nothing like the iPhone or iPad interface you are used to--except for a handful of icons. If you are lost and don't have a lot of time to comb through thousands of pages of tech-speak just to learn how to use a watch, then this book is for you!聽<b><br />Some of the many topics included:</b><ul><li><b>What's the difference between all of the "Series"</b></li><li><b>What's new to WatchOS 6</b></li><li><b>Using watch gestures</b></li><li><b>Apple Pay</b></li><li><b>How to change watch Faces</b></li><li><b>Sending messages and making phone calls</b></li><li><b>Using the calendar</b></li><li><b>Using reminders</b></li><li><b>Driving directions</b></li><li><b>Playing music</b></li><li><b>Checking the weather</b></li><li><b>Updating and reseting the watch</b></li><li><b>Best apps</b></li><li><b>Connecting AirPods</b></li><li><b>And much, much more!</b></li></ul>This book is based on the book "The Ridiculously Simple Guide to Apple Watch Series 5" but includes sections specifically for seniors (including accessibility features that make text easier to see).<br /><br />Are you ready to start enjoying your new Apple Watch?
