Smartphones are usually our most reliable tool for any tasks on the go, but they’re not always the most convenient. Believe it or not, there are times when your smart watch will actually be more useful than your phone. Here are four scenarios where it pays to have a smart watch…

Going for a run

Wearing a smart watch is not only lighter than carrying your phone, but also, most models can track your run and measure your heart rate so you can push yourself beyond your comfort zone. Plus, with Vodafone NumberSync™ you can stream music directly from your compatible smart watch to your Bluetooth headphones. Since it shares the same data as your phone, there’s no need to worry about pre-downloading your favourite playlist before you take off.

When your phone battery runs out

You’re on your last 8%, there’s no option for a charge, and stress starts to kick in as you switch your phone to flight mode. Well, if you’ve got your compatible smart watch on you, you can take a breath knowing you can still check directions and call a ride – even if your phone is dead. Vodafone NumberSync™ allows you to access the internet via your eligible Vodafone phone plan with or without your phone on, so when your phone does go flat, your smart watch can take its place to organise where you’re meeting up.

Going for a last-minute shop

It can be a pain when you need to pick up a couple of things from the shops, and you don’t want to carry anything with you. Luckily, with a compatible smart watch and Vodafone NumberSync™, you won’t need pockets, because you won’t need your phone. Get notified about last-minute shopping items on your smart watch, and with most having NFC (near-field communication) capabilities, you could pay with your smart watch too. Pants with pockets? Who needs them.

When you’re forgetful

You’re halfway through your commute only to realise you’ve left the house without your phone – we’ve all been there! If you have a habit of being forgetful, keeping a smart watch on you could make your day run a whole lot smoother. Vodafone NumberSync™ allows you to access notifications on your smart watch when you’re away from your phone, so you can be sure you’re on top of any urgent requests. Plus, you’ll feel less lost knowing you can still send and receive emails and messages, right from your smart watch!
