Every day you have to think of countless things - both in your private and professional life. In the office you have to call customers back, answer e-mails and also think about your breaks - that\u0026#39;s when you get confused in everyday life. The Apple Watch at work can help you structure your tasks better - we\u0026#39;ll show you how! Wearing an Apple Watch\/Smartwatch at work – Am I allowed to do that at all? Before we look at the many practical uses and tricks with an Apple Watch\/Smartwatch at work, we first have to look at the legal side. Because is it always allowed to take such a device to work? And what conditions must be met for the employer to be able to prohibit it? In the following lines we make a brief digression into employment law . First of all, the most important thing: there is no specific ban on smartwatches in the workplace in labor law. In the employment contract, however, your employer can stipulate that private devices may not be used during working hours - i.e. your Apple Watch at work is treated in much the same way as a smartphone. In principle, you can wear the watch, but not use it if your employer says so. In order not to be tempted in the first place, we recommend not wearing the watch in such a case. If your company has a dress code that prohibits the wearing of watches, then you are not allowed to wear your Apple Watch at work. Such a dress code is usually part of the employment contract and must be signed by the employee before the start of the activity. If you own a smartwatch and would like to wear it to work, then we recommend speaking to your manager first. As a rule - as with the smartphone - this has no problem with occasional or supportive use . If your colleagues already use an Apple Watch at work in their everyday work, you can also refer to the Equal Treatment Act - communication with your boss is the key to success here! Tip: When talking to your manager, you can also refer to the operational uses of the watch, which we will cover later in this desqup blog . This is how you can use the Apple Watch at work An Apple Watch\/Smartwatch can fulfill many tasks at work. Whether as a reminder for various tasks or for telephone conferences , the small devices can be a real relief. In this section, we\u0026#39;ll look at some of the watch\u0026#39;s features that can help you at work without getting too distracted. reminders for callbacks You probably know it too: On a stressful day you get a lot of calls with questions that you may not be able to answer immediately or yourself. As the day goes on, you lose track of who you have left to call and which calls have already been completed - customers may feel disgruntled and uncared for, which reflects badly on you and your company . On your Apple Watch or Smartwatch you can immediately make a note for a callback at work if it is needed. Just ask Siri for a reminder, it takes just a few seconds. Once the set time comes, the clock will remind you and you will not forget to call the customer back. answering calls Your cell phone is across the room right now and you need to take a call? For example during a meeting or a team conference ? Here, too, the Apple Watch at work can help. On it you can quickly see who is calling and then accept or reject the call. Thanks to the vibration , you will no longer miss important calls when your phone is just a few meters away. Even if your mobile phone is in your pocket, you can answer short messages quickly and easily by voice input - your colleagues don\u0026#39;t have to wait long for your answer and things can be done faster. The Apple Watch at work primarily saves time and effort for everyone involved. scheduling You probably know it too: You are in a conversation and it is about appointments that have to be made. However, you have no idea when you actually have time and when you are prevented. With an Apple Watch or Smartwatch, you have a quick and easy overview of all your appointments and can say when you\u0026#39;re free and when you\u0026#39;re not. Working time measurement In this respect, too, the Apple Watch is a real revolution. You lose the classic chip for time recording quickly and it is forgotten again and again. There are apps for the Apple Watch or other smart watches that you can use to record your working hours in just a few clicks. The built-in NFC chip can also be used by the employer so that you can record your working hours quickly and easily. Important: Not every employer accepts this very modern way of recording time. You should discuss this with your supervisor in advance so that there are no problems. Get up and drink reminders During a stressful day at work , it can quickly happen that you lose sight of time and your health. With the Apple Watch you can be reminded regularly to take your drinking and exercise breaks . We at desqup have set ourselves the goal of making your everyday work a little healthier.
