Why Apple Watch

It is the ultimate tool for a healthy life.

Apple Watch can do more than any of your other devices because it's on your wrist. With her, you have a fitness partner who can measure all the ways in which you move. You will also get important information about your health and a connection to the people and things that are most important to you. And everything is always just a glance away.

From running to cycling to high-intensity interval training, Apple Watch measures all the ways you like to exercise with the metrics that matter most to you.

The Apple Watch is water-resistant up to 50 meters.1 It's perfect for swimming, surfing, or water fights. Attack!

When you wear your watch to bed, it can monitor your sleep and take good care of you.

Good night. Good day.

The sleep app doesn't just track your sleep. It works in conjunction with your iPhone to help you create a bedtime plan and routine to help you sleep better.

She has her heart in view.

Abnormally high or low heart rates and irregular heartbeat (called "arrhythmias" in the medical community) can indicate a serious illness.2 Many people fail to recognize the symptoms, so the root causes are often not diagnosed. Messages in the heart rate app report these irregularities to you so that you can react and get a medical examination.
