When I display the cook pad on the iPhone, I will go to see the iPhone which I placed in a safe area where it is not watery to check the procedure many times, but because the Apple Watch is drip-proof it can be installed even during cooking It seems quite convenient because you can quickly confirm the recipe on your wrist.

You can use the timer with Apple Watch as it is, and practicality is improved.
