Take Control of Apple Watch

A Take Control Crash Course

tc-apple-watch-crash-course-coverAre you considering an Apple Watch? Or perhaps you’re an early adopter with one already adorning your wrist? Regardless, learning about the Apple Watch has been pretty hit-or-miss with Web content, especially when it comes to distinguishing pre-release speculation from articles based on actual usage.

So TidBITS brings you the full release of Jeff Carlson’s Apple Watch: A Take Control Crash Course, which may be the first documentation of the Apple Watch that’s comprehensive, independent, and based on real-world experience.

Using the Take Control graphically rich Crash Course format, Jeff covers the Apple Watch from metaphorical morning to night, first helping you understand what it can do for you and choose a particular model. Next, after explaining how you interact with the watch and personalize the watch face, Jeff walks you through using glances, apps, and notifications. Then he turns his attention to specific things that the watch can help with, including communicating with friends, getting directions, working with events and reminders, viewing and capturing photos, controlling iTunes and Apple TVs, Passbook, exercising, and using Apple Pay (currently USA only and soon in UK).

Two final chapters ensure that you know what settings and customisations are available and how to take care of your watch, including recharging, restarting, resetting, and restoring.

Like other Take Control Crash Courses, this book has concise chunks of content so you can read quickly, all wrapped up in a modern, magazine-like layout in PDF that morphs to a reflowable design for EPUB and Mobipocket. Each chapter ends with discussion and sharing buttons, making it easy to ask a question or share a chapter with Facebook friends, Twitter followers, and others.
