Love it but definitely not necessary to have it
Posted by: CRoh78 from: on
I got the 38mm Yellow gold with antique band. I initially thought i wanted the Rose gold but ended up with the yellow and I am glad I choose it. The rose gold is VERY pink in my opinion. If that is what you are looking for then you will love it. The yellow gold is not overly yellow and is very subtle. It looks very nice with the brown leather band I purchased.
As far as how it functions, it works pretty well. It was easy to sync and set up. I love the ability to make it your own as far as changing the face, what it displays and the color its in. I like different faces for different activities like work and going out vs exercise or the weekend.
I took off a star because the Stand in the activity doesn't pick up accurately and I had issues with it not answering calls. There have been many times it has not sensed that i was standing and had been for a while. It does accurately pick up movement and heart rate. I think it is more accurate than my previous activity monitor (a Jawbone).
Another thing that has not worked as well as i thought it would is answering calls on it. I have had a few times when I push the green button to answer a call and it did not sense it and the caller hung up before it finally worked.
Notifications come through well. You can pick which apps you want to have notifications sent to it. I really like being able to see my text messages without having to get my phone out. I wish you could put your own short text responses in to have (maybe you can and I just don't know how to) but most of the ones available are useful. If they don't work, it usually would be too long to text on the watch anyway so you would want to do it on your phone. I have not been able to test out sending a message to another person with an apple watch because I'm the only person i know that has one currently.
I have been very pleased with the battery life. It has never died on me and I have even had it last >24 hours (I was at work and did not use the exercise mode which does decrease the battery quicker).
Over all I love it! Is it absolutely necessary to have? NO. Is it fun? YES. I get a lot of compliments on it and questions about it. Several other people are getting them after seeing mine.

Love this watch!
Posted by: Penny5 from: on
I've been waiting for the Apple Watch to be sold by Best Buy for points and financing deals and the day has finally come. I originally ordered the apple watch with the Milanese loop but quickly returned it. Yes, it's more scratch resistant but it's so very heavy especially for me who is not used to wearing a watch at all. I love the sport and have spent a lot of time looking at reviews, it seems that a lot prefer/recommend the apple sport over the apple watch. I feel better spending less too because with this being a first gen product who knows how much better the next one will be and I will want it. Definitely recommend, it's so much fun! I wish the volume was better though. It's almost impossible to hear a conversation.

Perfect size for Women
Posted by: Betovzla from: on
I bought this one for my wife and I definitively recommend the 38mm apple watch for women as it looks delicate and more stylized. 42mm is to big for her. Regarding the functions I highly recommend it specially after the reduced price.

Outstanding Apple Product
Posted by: Teeshot from: on
Bought this for my wife as an anniversary present, but had to play with it a bit before she did. Looking forward to WatchOS 2.0. Wish it would do more without the iPhone, but am very pleased with the quality and construction. HUGE problem however.............I had to buy myself one two days later.

Feels like a first gen product
Posted by: xdwcpsd from: on
The things I really like about the watch are its ability to customize the watch face, getting messages and notifications on my wrist, and answering calls when I have it on. The speakers work surprising well and it frees up your hand to hold other things than a phone. This comes in really handy especially as a parent of a baby and for more tasks than you think.
The worst part is the battery life. I've noticed that even when I don't wear it for like 2-3 days, I have to recharge it before wearing it. Also, it doesn't support video very well (if at all). I've had this for a month now, and I have yet to find ANYTHING that plays video. Of course, you wouldn't be watching movies or anything lengthy on your wrist, but an occasional video message or a quick check of some moving content would be welcome. Also, I feel like the minutes of movement is wildly inaccurate. I've noticed it doesn't track movement down the stairs all that great. Lastly, the interface, while good enough for basic purposes, either hides too much or shows too much. The showing too much is the home screen full of icons. It is a bit tough to find the app you are looking, esp if you have many. The showing too little is the activity tracker. Did you know that there is a built-in pedometer that is automatically started on the watch? If you think this is done via a pedometer (or steps walked) app, you would be wrong. It is in the activity app, and it is hidden in a glance on the movement tab. I found it by accident, really. The worst part about that is that if you want to track "steps walked" instead of "calories burned" for example (as a goal or circle to complete for the day), you can't do that. The last thing that really bothers me is that it needs the iPhone like a super clingy baby needs its mommy for everything. That is horrible because I've been noticing that my phone battery gets drained more quickly since bluetooth is on 24x7. I used to have that permanently off.
There are also many fit and finish issues that just make this feel very first gen. I think that Apple has kept the bar fairly low, so they can wow us with incremental "wow" features for the next and the next next, etc watch cycle,
Overall, buy it for it is. I am happy enough to keep it only because I got it at a good discount on Best Buy and got the cheapest model. At this point, anything more expensive would be a shear waste in my opinion. If the Watch 2 or later is way more compelling than this, you can always trade this in for a "better bill of materials".

Nice Try Apple, but this watch is a fail
Posted by: Hans from: on
The concept behind this smartwatch is good, but execution is not good. The battery life is horrible. I could barely get through past a day. It does integrate to phone calls, texts and email, etc. on your iphone, but when I tried actually reading many of my emails, it said see device. What a waste. I ended up turning that feature off. Notifications would come up for map navigation, was useless since I was using the phone anyway.
The navigation on the phone was horrible. Many of the small icons were very similar and hard to tell one from another and to actually select the app was not easy at all. UI really needs to be addressed.
I had hoped it would track sleep, but since the battery needed charging I couldn't wear it at night. It was nice to track exercise activity, but the fitbit is a better device for it. So basically it came down to an expensive watch that needed charging every day.
I took it back after a week and got a fitbit. Much more useful and smaller and less expensive.

My Apple Watch is...
Posted by: rvbvdvn from: Orange County, CA on
GREAT! I love how it keeps me up to date on my notifications. Some people complain about being bombarded by notifications, but you can easily fix that in settings. I have noticed that by wearing it all the time, I am actually tracking my fitness levels. That is the best part, I have noticed that I have become more active(which is a huge plus)! :D

Like a personal trainer on your wrist
Posted by: AndyCoops from: on
As a Fitbit user since the beginning, I grew bored and somewhat complacent with it. I've been through them all. The Apple watch is very motivating with changing goals and achievements. It's been very humbling to complete a bunch of daily exercises that normally would have left me feeling very accomplished, but the watch pushes you to do more. I love the text message and phone call capabilities especially when answering a call or text is not appropriate. I wasn't entirely sure what I was jumping into with this watch purchase but after a couple weeks with it, I absolutely recommend.

Great watch, but consider spending your money
Posted by: Zach from: on
I love the Apple watch. But, I use it for fitness. If you're not into fitness and things revolving around that, consider what you'll use it for. Sure, it's a "cool gadget," but are you really in need of having to look at your wrist to see who emailed you when you get an email notification? Or, return a text? I find that a majority of the time, I'm pulling out my phone to type responses, as it is sometimes easier, I have the ability to type more than one-work standard responses, or have access to pictures or attachments. It is definitely "COOL." But, I find I'm wearing it most of the time when I run, exercise or go to the gym. I'm a watch person. So, depending on what model you're getting, consider putting that money towards a nice traditional watch. Otherwise it is definitely worth it.

I had first bought the watch a few months ago directly from Apple when I had dropped my phone while biking (before it was offered anywhere else), but purchased another for my wife from Best Buy. As I have loved the watch's ability to motivate my daily activity, be easier to utilize my phone when jogging/biking/exercising, I wanted to pass on that love to my wife, who already understands all the good things that I was explaining! While the fitbit is a great product as well, the fact that this links directly to my iPhone (texts, calls, apps, reminders, etc) is awesome!
