The Apple Watch is finally here and sure everyone is excited. I mean, who hasn’t wanted to feel like “Inspector Gadget” or a CIA Agent with one’s wrist-wear?
In anticipation of its impending release, though — hello,
2015 — we thought it behooved us to lay down some
etiquette rules ahead of time for the Apple Watch. You
know, stop tech-based social faux pas (like taking
photos with your iPad at concerts and whatnot) in their
tracks — Check out some tips below before you blunder:

1.) WATCH YOUR ELBOW TO PEOPLES JAWS

If you think people reading books on the subway and
folks with huge umbrellas on crowded sidewalks are
annoying, get ready for “Apple Watch Elbow” — a term
we’re coining (before the thing even comes out) for
basically getting bashed in the face when the dude next
to you decides to check his messages/weather/number
of calories burned on the threadmill next to you.
Just remember: Don’t do harm, watch your arm!

2.) BE SWEET WITH YOUR HEARTBEAT.

So apparently you can share things like sketches and
heartbeats with other users. That’s pretty cute, right? Well,
we recommend using this feature sparingly especially
with people you really care about. Because, you know,
we could totally see these things becoming just another
tool for “carpet-bombing” or replacing the more annoying BB BC or reBC’s grrrrrrrrrrrr— , texting a ton of dudes/
chicks the same message and hoping someone
responds (the more modern equivalent is Snapchatting
everyone in your phone your unmentionables).
Just remember: It’s only sweet if it’s elite!

3.) TAP THAT SPARINGLINGY

In addition to heartbeats and whatnot, you can also set
another user’s watch into motion by tapping their name
on your contact list. Don’t do this. It sounds annoying.
(Also potentially perilous if you’re tipsy at 2 a.m. and
missing your ex.)
Just remember: Don’t tap while they nap!

4.) KEEP YOUR WORKOUTS INSIDE.
The Apple Watch is also some kind of fitness/workout
thingie, which means it will give you even more
needless personal information to bombard friends with
when they’re just trying to eat or rest.
Just remember: Exercise, don’t talk about your thighs!

5.) DON’T FORGET THAT PEOPLE EXIST

Now that you can access Siri from your wrist, listen to
tunes, send folks emojis, successfully navigate yourself
down the sidewalk (the map app works via vibrations!)
and more — don’t forget about the existence of other
life-forms. Sure, you’ll now have the source of all
human happiness strapped to your wrist — which
means you can’t even put it on silent in a purse, like a
phone — but that doesn’t mean you don’t have a need
for facetime with other humans. And we don’t mean
the iPhone feature.
Just remember: You’ll be missed if you only talk to
your wrist!
