First off, I love the Apple Watch when I am camping. While at the campsite, I can leave my phone in the tent and still get notifications when I am on-call. It also came in handy when cooking around camp to set timers. Friday night, this past week, we were at the campsite getting ready to roast marshmallows when my watch goes off, it is the Emergency app alerting me that there is a Tornado Warning in effect for our area, giving us enough notice to quickly grab some things and head to a friend's basement in town. There were several tornados in the area, fortunately there wasn't any damage or injuries. There are times when I don't carry my phone around, in these instances it's nice to have the watch to get important messages or alerts.
