How to pair apple watch with new iphone
By JADA YUAN The New York Times Mon., July 9, 2018 You know those paisley Vera Bradley duffelss beloved by sorority sisters and grandmas nationwide? I dragged one with me for the first four legs of my impossible, wonderful 52 Places trip because it was the only luggage I owned that fit all the things I thought I needed. It went home just before I left the United States, which made up the first few legs of my trip, along with some 20 pounds of clothes, according to my luggage scale. (I eventually ditched that, too.) Blogs, travel writers, foreign correspondent friends, and flight attendants all gave me great advice, but the past five months of hopscotching through climates and national borders have been figuring out what works for me, with trial — and a ton of error. Here are my most important takeaways on packing and prepping for long-term solo travel. 1. Pick a card. Not just any card.

All incoming calls went to the Apple Watch. And I could make a phone call directly from the watch, and found the sound and signal as strong as with the phone. The watch shows how the strength of the cellular signal via the green buttons on its screen. When all four button are green, the signal is very good, while a solo green button denotes a poor signal. The one thing the user needs to prepare for is the battery charge. The battery ran out much faster the day that I forgot the phone at home. Starting from a fully-charged battery on the watch in the morning, the juice had run out by the end of the day. So, that day’s lesson was that the watch can double as my mobile phone, as long as the iPhone I left at home was fully charged for my return from work. Also note that if the iPhone’s battery has run out, the connection between the watch and the phone will be lost.
