My Apple Watch has come in handy more times than ever this past week when it came to residency interview invitations. I submitted my ERAS application for pediatrics residency a little over a week ago and so far have received some invitations from programs to interview with them. These invitations are time sensitive so I always want to respond back as quickly as I can. However, when on rounds in the hospital or on other rotations where is not always possible to check your phone often, I love being able to know whenever I get an important email by a subtle tap on my wrist.
Mostly, I only use my Apple Watch for notifications. I get so many notifications on my phone, that if I had my phone on vibrate, it would constantly be going off. By pushing only the most important ones to my watch, I can still be notified of things whenever I need to without being as disturbing to others. I also love using the fitness/activity feature to track how many steps I’m taking while I’m traveling all over the hospital. With the new watchOS 2 upgrade Apple released a couple of weeks ago, the Apple Watch is supposedly faster than ever. I hope with these new changes that I will continue to find useful ways to utilize my watch.
