Facebook notifications,directions,maps and notification slider is what makes Apple Watch a wishlist item.

You can use the Apple Watch for Apple pay. Instead of fumbling for your iPhone, you can simply press a button on your Apple Watch, hold it close to the terminal,and the built-in NFC(Near Field Communication) will do it’s thing and you’re done. It’s always right there on your wrists and it never reveals your credit information or personal information.
If you use Apple Pay for purchasing,then Apple Watch is compelling.

4.For Health and Fitness Purposes
The Apple watch is great for health and fitness.With new addition of features like built-in-GPS,heart rate sensor,smart activity coaching,Gym Connect and additional features for swimmers,it is highly optimized for health and fitness.It has a heart rate app that monitors your heart rhythm,pulse rate for both resting and when active and notifies you whenever it detects something out of ordinary relating to your heart.In fact,Apple has focused on the increasing heart problem so much that it started Apple Heart Study with Stanford to analyze heart rhythms using data from Apple Watch.
1.Largely Dependent on iPhone
Apple Watch is not a replacement for your iPhone.In fact,Apple Watch isn’t designed to replace your iPhone just yet.What Apple watch is actually a device to display things running on your iPhone but some features are not available if you don’t pair the with an iPhone.
If you don’t have an iPhone Apple Watch can be almost useless.
You can’t take photos on Apple Watch even though there is a Camera App on it.Your iPhone has to be remotely connected to it but you can only shoot photos that the iPhone camera is seeing.So,if you have your iPhone on your pocket,your photo looks black(unless your pocket is bright with landscape views of course).
2.Won’t replace your normal watch(probably)
Actually this is more of a personal disadvantage.We are accustomed to looking time on our steel band watch.A classical mechanical clock can be passed from generation to generation but Apple watch won’t last a decade surely.An with more and more updates from Apple,you might find the watch tiring or need to get another latest model of your watch.Or you may not.
The first gen of the Apple Watch had low battery life.The Apple Watch Series 3 claims to have a 18 hour battery life when idle.But reports claim that it even lasted 24 hours.Apple Watch surely keeps updating and someday it might just replace iPhone.
If you think Apple Watch is perfect for you can get the Apple Watch Series 3 here.
