Apple Watch

Kent wants to know if he can use an Apple Watch without an iPhone. Leo says not anymore. But he can set it up with a family member's iPhone. That's a helpful feature. But at the end of the day, he will need an iPhone to activate the watch. If he doesn't want an Apple Watch, then he should look at the Fitbit or Android Wear watch. There's also Garmin.
