Apple Watch is the best smartwatch available in the market. Apart from tracking your fitness, it lets you accomplish a variety of tasks. By pairing it with your iPhone, you can do things like attending calls, sending messages, listening to music, and more. Whenever you receive calls or messages, you will get a notification on your Apple Watch. You can attend the call or decline it from your wrist.
