Apple Watch is a jack-of-all-trades type of product. Everyone is going to find a unique use for this wearable, but a vast majority of its owners are going to be using it for fitness. Aside from counting calories and using it as a reminder to stay active throughout the day, you’re probably going to want to use it while going for a run, walk, or bike ride.
You’re going to need some motivation music while you get your sweat on. That’s why Apple has carved off 2GB of on-board Apple Watch storage just for music. But you can’t just plug the EarPods that came with your iPhone into Apple Watch. There’s no 3.5mm jack. Instead, you have to upgrade to some Bluetooth wireless headphones. Apple Watch supports battery-saving Bluetooth 4.0 technology, which will be a big help in getting this wearable to last an entire day.
