Thinking of getting organised with a smartwatch? You’ve got a lot going on in your life. From juggling work responsibilities to managing your family and household, it’s sometimes easy for things to slip through the cracks. If you feel like your tasks and responsibilities are piling up and you have no idea how you’ll ever get organised, a smartwatch can help.
Whether you need help figuring out where you need to be (and when!) or need assistance keeping track of all those small tasks that never seem to get done, your smartwatch will help you get your life in order. Let’s find out how.
Organisational benefits of a smartwatch
#1: Sorting out your schedule
Most smartwatches have some calendar features and will send you a reminder when you need to be somewhere soon. There are many cheap smartwatches on the market that will go a step beyond a simple calendar and reminder system and will help you see everything you need to do at a glance, from what you’ve got going on during the day, to reminders coming up.
Some watches, such as those available to tie in with Android devices, will send you notifications to your wrist based on emails you’ve received. If you have a flight coming up and the flight confirmation in your email, you’ll get a notice about it in time to make it to the airport. Easy!
#2: Completing everyday tasks
You can also use a smartwatch to record notes and to make “to-do” or shopping lists. Some smartwatch apps also go a step further and will complete certain tasks for you. For example, you can download an app that will remind you that a bill is due and will let you quickly pay that bill by tapping on the screen of your watch.
#3: Remembering the little things
There are a lot of little details in your life, from reminding to give your pets their medicine to remembering to buy bread and milk on the way home. It’s these small details that tend to fall through the cracks, or you spend so much time stressing about them that you forget to complete your more pressing tasks.
With notifications and note-taking apps, you can program your smartwatch to remember the small details for you. With location-based reminders, you’ll get a notification to buy bread when you pass by a supermarket or to give your pet his meds when you get home.
#4: Managing your home
If you’re the type of person who often worries that you left the lights on or didn’t turn down the air conditioning back home, a smartwatch will help put your mind at ease and save you time and energy. Some smartwatch models connect to smart home technology apps and let you adjust the thermostat or turn off the lights, no matter where you are.
