Following up on yesterday’s article about what Apple Watch means for travelers, the Points Guy on his most anticipated feature:
To me, Apple Watch’s most unique feature is the “taptic engine”, which can slightly tap your wrist as an alert. I see this being extremely useful when traveling and your flight is delayed or gate changes. I often get those alerts on my iPhone, but even when it is on vibrate, I often don’t feel the taps and miss some important alerts.
I’ll admit that’s a problem I have: I often miss alerts on my phone when its in my pocket. Chalk that up to another convenient travel feature for the Apple Watch. Maybe all of these little nice-to-haves add up to something bigger?
