Apple Watch: The Must-have Accessory for Top Performers

What do Bob Iger, Anna Wintour, Rupert Murdoch, J.J. Abrams, Karl Lagerfeld, Beyonce, and Tim Cook have in common? Well, they each have achieved remarkable levels of success in their respective industries for one. Another is a common accessory: the Apple Watch®.

So, is this choice a matter of fashion or function? Are they early adopters of the latest tech trends or is there something more? As the Apple Watch continues to gain market share, the true everyday benefits of the popular tech accessory are becoming increasingly more evident. This is especially true for top performers, always striving to maintain optimal productivity, health, and efficiency.

These notable top performers are not unlike many lawyers that we know and love. It turns out that the Apple Watch is becoming a popular tool for lawyers. Why? According to lawyer Evan Kline, in a recent interview that appeared in the Central Penn Business Journal, “It's a way to get things out of my head and get on with my day.” Kline explains that his Apple Watch allows him to receive “quick snippets of information about calendar items, emails, and fitness measurements,” explaining that “it is not as much about doing work as it is about enhancing work.”

What is it about the Apple Watch that makes top performing lawyers like Kline so ready to raise their wrist for a watch that talks, records, notifies, and responds? The Apple Watch offers several distinct benefits to the best lawyers, in particular, the top performers at the firm.

Here are a few of the ways that today’s best lawyers are leveraging the Apple Watch to increase efficiency, productivity, and peace of mind:

  • Prioritize notifications: Get the most important updates in real time and save the others for later.
  • Be on time, all the time: Say goodbye to missed meetings. Calendar updates ensure you are where you need to be, when you need to be there.
  • Increase accuracy: The Apple Watch is the ultimate contemporaneous accessory for the mobile lawyer. There is no better way to conduct real-time time entry than to enter time from a smart watch.
  • Maintain optimal health: Health and wellness play a considerable role in peak performance. The Apple Watch allows you to manage and understand your health in real time, which, in turn, assists in keeping you healthy and as focused as possible.
