The Unofficial Guide To Everything Apple Watch!

Owning an Apple Watch is exploring a new frontier in Apple technology. Consumer electronics are quickly moving from your pocket to right on your wrist. Smartwatches, like the Apple Watch, allow for more flexibility, alleviating the need to always have a smartphone in hand. Apple Watch is currently one of the best smartwatches currently on the market, packing a heart rate monitor that's highly accurate, a fitness app that's second to none, not to mention a well-tailored watch body, with a plethora of watch-band configurations for personalization. One of the best aspects of owning an Apple Watch is quick, convenient methods of getting in touch with all your contacts via mini software apps that allow you to text, tap, call, and even sketch to your contacts! You can take a quick call on your wrist while on-the-go. You can tap your friend across the room in a party or board meeting to signal that it's time to head out. Text right from your wrist with a few simple taps. Monitor emails. Getting notification sent right to your wrist. Connect with all your friends and favorite contacts whenever, wherever. Control music instantly. There's so much you can do. And as Apple updates the software, the capabilities will only grow from here.

This course was designed for those that need a jumpstart into the experience. An initial tour. No prior Apple Watch experience required. In this course I start from the beginning. From turning on and pairing the Apple watch. To customizing Watch Faces and communicating from the Apple Watch using Voice Dictation. Then I'll cover a few fun topics like snapping friend and family portraits using the camera remote feature built into the Apple Watch, and even viewing favorite photos in the photos app. Walk away acclimated to one of the newest consumer electronics on the market. This course will get you introduced, comfortable, and confident using your new Apple Watch.

Curriculum

Section 1: Apple Watch Basics
01:55

The very first thing of using an Apple Watch is simply turning it on and off. This video will show you which button does that.

00:54

If you ever need to unpair your Apple Watch from your iPhone for whatever reason, this video shows you how, using the Apple Watch App on your iPhone.

06:43

This video shows you how to pair your Apple Watch with your iPhone.

00:47

This video will show you how to use the Magsafe Apple Watch Charger that magnetically clips onto the backside of the Apple Watch, so you can connect your charger with ease and get juice quickly.

01:27

This video shows you how to use the Apple Watch App on your iPhone to download apps, how to search for a particular type of app and get it downloaded onto your Apple Watch within seconds.

01:35

This video shows you how to change out the band on your Apple Watch. I take a Space Grey 42 mm Apple Watch Sport and switch it's Sport band out for a Bright Blue Leather Loop made by Apple.

Section 2: Customize Apple Watch
00:59

You can re-arrange the layout of your apps on the Apple Watch two ways. This video shows you how to move your apps around using the Apple Watch & the Apple Watch App on your iPhone. Customization is quick and easy and only takes a matter of seconds.

03:07

Glances are what you use to get quick but important bite-sized information on your Apple Watch. You can swipe up from the bottom of the screen on the Apple Watch, while your Watch is on the watch face, and get bits of info, such as: current stock price of your favorite stock, the weather and temp outside, the battery life percentage of your Apple Watch, and more. You can customize these "Glances" using the Apple Watch App on your iPhone. This video will show you how.

01:25

In order to change how the clock face looks on the Apple Watch, you have to use something called "Force Touch" in order to get the Apple Watch in to Watch Face Editing Mode. I show you how to use Force Touch in this video.

03:46

This is one of my favorite Apple Watch Faces because it gives you the highest number of Complications. Complications are the little icons in the corners of the Watch Face that let you see things like the Current Temperature Outside, Favorite Stock Price, How Much Battery Is Left On The Apple Watch, & More. I show you the ins-and-outs of the Modular Watch Face in this video.

02:55

My favorite thing about this Watch Face is the long-form complication you can choose at the bottom. It gives you more detail than a regular Complication, allowing you to see more. I'll show you in this video.

01:36

The Motion Watch Face lets you change the background to animated objects like a swimming Jellyfish, blooming flowers, and flapping butterflies. The edges of these Watch Face Animations are crisp and motion is liquid-smooth.

01:12

You can colorize the entire clock in with this Watch Face. Pick from four complications, and even at a personal monogram if you'd like.

02:08

This Watch Face is for the stylish minimalist. You can take away almost everything on this Watch Face, leaving nothing but the hour, minute, and second hand.

02:11

This Watch Face allows you to start a stopwatch on the drop of a dime. Hit the Stopwatch Complications in the top-right corner and your instantly tracking time!

00:44

This is a fun, playful watch face. Watch Mickey's arms move around the clock, as his foot stamps second by second, keeping perfect time!

02:31

This Watch Face is BIG & bold. Change the color or leave it white. Up to you with X-Large.

01:56

The Astronomy face let's you see your exact location on the globe. You can tap the globe and spin it around. Even take a trip to the moon. Spin the moon around. Get a bird's eye view of the planets. Also travel forward in time to see their future planetary positions.

01:56

The Solar Watch Face is my second favorite Apple Watch Face. Like the Astronomy Watch Face, you can use the Digital Crown to zoom forward in time with time travel or zoom backwards even. It's a very clean, minimalist watch face and looks great with a leather loop or another premium watch band.

Section 3: Going Further With Apple Watch
02:58

No need to pull your phone out of your pocket, you can shoot of a text with a flick of the wrist using the Apple Watch. Just navigate to a message and reply with voice dictation or use Siri to send one off.

01:07

Need to make a phone call in a jiff? No problem. Just use your Apple Watch. I'll show you how to in this video.

00:53

You can even monitor email on an Apple Watch. Scroll through and read simple emails.

01:20

You can look at your photos on an Apple Watch. Simply favorite them from the Photos app on your iPhone, and they immediately show up on your Apple Watch. Navigate to the Apple Watch photos app, zoom in, swipe through, and start collecting your favorites to get ready for the fall update coming. In the next Apple Watch OS you'll be able to take your lovely favorites and make them into custom Watch Faces!

02:52

I love the music control on the Apple Watch. Using the Music app, you can go directly to your favorite artist, song, album, and even listen to playlists you've previously made with your iPhone. You can quickly control the volume of your track now playing, favorite the song, or skip onto the next. Perfect for anyone on-the-go.

03:58

You can now take your family's holiday portrait, or catch a group photo of you and your friends, using the Apple Watch as a photo timer & camera shutter remote. Just tap into the Camera app on the Apple Watch, tap the 3-second timer, and get you and your friends to smile or make a goofy face for the camera as it takes a burst of several photos for you to look at on your iPhone immediately following the snaps you take.

01:27

Want a look ahead at today's chance of showers before the big game? Need to know if you need an umbrella for later? No problem. Simply swipe up and check the weather from an Apple Watch glance or else use a pre-selected complication to tap right into the weather app. I'll show you in this video.

01:43

If you misplace your iPhone and need to locate it fast, you can use the Apple Watch's built-in Ping Feature. There's two types of Pings you can do with the Apple Watch. I'll show you how in this video.

Instructor Biography

Cory Kensinger, Worked at Apple Inc. / Tech Lifestyle Expert / OnlineCreator

There's one little fact about me that inspires everything I do: I'm curious. REALLY curious. From the time I wake up to the time I go to sleep, I'm thinking about dozens of little questions pricking at my mind to answer. Hundreds of insatiable intrigues I have in my mind to explore. This curiosity drives me to figure out things. Figure out the WHY behind things. To figure out the HOW. My mind is always growing towards these little discoveries, like vines on a wall always stretching further out and up for the sun.

I'm curious, because I want to learn how to create things. Creating things for people makes me feel most alive. There's nothing better than that flooding rush of excitement because what I made really meant something to someone. When I play back a song I wrote, work on a video production, connect with a huge audience, review a new up and coming product, give people the inside scoop on a theory, a method, a set of insights to change someone's life - these are the sort of things I live for.

I'm driven by curiosity, creativity, and truth. 

It's with this passion that I hope to imbue each and every class I establish on this website. I hope you can feel my enthusiasm for discovery when you enroll in my courses. I want know what YOU think. I want to help you with the things I know best.  

It means everything to me.
