Notifications
It lets you leave your phone in your pocket and view notifications on your wrist. Apple Watch displays alerts from your iPhone so you can respond or dismiss them. Its Taptic modified engine gives you a gentle tap on your wrist or an audio cue when notifications come in.

Faces
You can easily change the face of your Apple Watch to fit your needs, from chronographs to digital faces to a model of the solar system. Also choose complications you want, to the watch face so you can see the information most important to you.

Complications
Complications are small widgets that appear on the face of your Watch and provide quick access to frequently used data. Customize which complications you’d like to appear, including built-in complications like weather, calendar, and activity, or complications from your installed apps.

Apple Pay
Apple Pay is a secure mobile payment method that lets you pay for goods and services online and in-person without reaching for your wallet. You can add credit cards and rewards cards to Apple Pay, which does not store card numbers on your device or share them with merchants. To pay with your Apple Watch, simply double-click the side button and hold the display of Apple Watch up to the contactless reader. A gentle tap and beep confirm that your payment information was sent.

Siri
Talk to Apple’s digital assistant Siri just like you would on your iPhone to launch apps, record notes, search the web, reply to messages, and more.

Taptic Engine
Instead of a vibration, the Apple Watch engine ‘taps’ on your wrist to alert you to new notifications and respond to inputs. It gives different types of taps in different situations, so you can feel the difference between a call and a text message without looking.

Activation Lock
Activating your Apple Watch requires your iCloud Apple ID and password, so your information will stay safe even if your Watch is lost or stolen.

Heart Rate Monitor
Check your heart rate at any time with the Apple Watch’s built-in heart rate monitor. It uses an array of LEDs and sensors to determine how hard your heart is working. Every ten minutes it attempts to take a reading, which is then stored in the Health app. Certain conditions, such as movement, extreme temperatures, and tattoos can interfere with readings.

Activity app
The Activity app displays progress made towards your daily activity goals with three intuitive rings that grow the more you move, finally closing when you hit your targets. The Stand ring shows how often you’ve stood up to take a break from sitting, the Move ring shows how many active calories you’ve burned, and the Exercise ring shows how many minutes of brisk activity you’ve completed. Swipe up from the bottom of the Watch to view active calories burned, steps taken, and distance traveled.

As long as your connected i-phone is within Bluetooth range you can make or receive a call! There’s a speaker & microphone built into the watch.
