My 18 year old self would be stunned by what I’m wearing on my wrist. This is now the world I play in a half-century 50 later. Even business opportunities are like “musical chairs”. I can only play successfully if I’m instantly aware. My imagination could never have imagined this.
+ All forms of modern communications at my wrist, easily attracting my attention. I’m always at the ready. The spam phone call is quickly rejected by tapping my wrist.The important call no longer requires fumbling for the phone. Family incidents are here and now.
+ Family photos are on command.
+I can talk to my wife in the back yard using the walkie-talkie feature on both our watches.
+ Is the stock market holding up today? No one needs to know I’m up-to-date in the middle of a meeting or at lunch.
+My wrist reminds me to relax and breath at a schedule I create.
+I’ve got a daily, comprehensive record of my heart rate and a daily (single lead) EKG to show my doctor as we discuss how I’ve been doing.
+I choose how complicated my wrist watch is; or what fashion statement I want to make. I “slide” my more practical watch faces into view during my work day, my activity faces after work, and my super cool, or maybe Mickey Mouse face, when I’m in the mood.
+There’s my calendar, the weather, shopping list, music recognizer, home door announcer, travel messages.
+I can control my music. I can signal an emergency.
+I can pay my food bill.
+++ There surely more to come.
SETUP: It doesn’t get easier. I did all the installation (mostly customizing, selecting, rejecting) which fits more into the fun category rather than work. Get on Youtube and do a Google search to find comprehensive guidance from some informative characters. I prefer a text (with some photos) guide, which worked perfectly for me. Play around and mess up a few times. You’re not going to break anything. A few days later I knew what I didn’t know and started some tasks over from scratch.
SUMMARY: Read above. The only other recommendation I have . . get the Nike iteration of the Apple 4 with the Loop band that’s woven with reflective thread. Very comfortable, easy to use, and makes losing control when removing the watch virtually impossible. You’ll also get a few extra faces and Apps which you may or may not find useful. It doesn’t cost more and you trade away nothing.
I’ve waited my entire life for the technology future. It’s here and I’m liking it.
Take a little getting used to using, watching YouTube videos help.

I did the math - the Series 4 is a bargain
Having purchased the 42mm Series 2 in late-2016 for $399.00, I was hesitant to upgrade to the Series 4 model, especially considering that the Apple Watches seem to depreciate at a more rapid rate than their iOS counterparts. Having said that, the redesign is refreshing and the difference in screen size is noticeable. The latter point is crucial, especially when purchasing one as a gift for someone who might be on the older side. Older (age 55+) family members have remarked how the Series 4 is easier on the eyes. This, along with the new suite of safety features (fall detection, EKG), makes it much easier to reach into the wallet.
Speaking of wallets, is it worth $429.00? Sure, the price tag is still relatively steep, but one should realize that Watch pricing has remained somewhat reasonable when compared to iPhone pricing. After adjusting for inflation (CPI-U), my $399.00 Series 2 Watch in 2016 costs $417.41 in today's dollars. As I already mentioned, I can justify the marginal price increase considering the Series 4’s new functions.
Here’s where it gets good. Just for fun, let’s take a quick look at the pricing on the iPhone side — in 2016, the 128GB iPhone 7 Plus was the “Goldilocks” model and retailed for $869.00 (+/- $100 for 32GB/256GB variants). After applying the same inflation adjustment, the $869.00 for the iPhone 7 Plus in 10/2016 equals $909.11 in today’s dollars. Now, consider that the equivalent “Goldilocks” flagship model in the current lineup (the 256GB iPhone XS Max) retails for $1249.00. This represents an eye-popping price hike of 37% from our adjusted figure of $909.11 for the iPhone 7 Plus. I do realize that we might be comparing apples vs. oranges here, so this is purely for illustrative purposes. Even if the analogy might be imperfect, the Series 4 Watch at $429.00 suddenly seems like a downright bargain next to the iPhone.
Wife got this for my for my birthday! I had the Apple Watch 2 before so this is a huge upgrade because of the bigger screen. This watch is fast and responsive. Love it. I use a protector to protect it from cracks if I hit something accidentally.
If your looking to upgrade your current Apple Watch the Apple Watch series 4 is worth it. Compared to the new series 5 it has all the same basic functions other than a built in compass (provides better GPS function with maps) and the always on display. If your not interested in those features the series 4 is just as great.
I upgraded to apple watch from my 4 year-reliable pebble time, which finally gave out to battery problems. I wasn't looking for anything fancy, mainly notifications and keeping up with my calendar; but since I've been a dedicated iPhone user since the 7 I figured a matching watch couldn't hurt. This watch is amazing. from the sleek looks to the fluid os. What was even more surprising to me is how well of a fitness tracker this is and better yet a fitness motivator. Every day I'm wanting to ensure I close those circles and reach the activity goals for the day. I find myself more aware of what I'm doing to be more active everyday. I recall watching a video about the difference in the apple watch and the nike + edition and in short, you get a few more watch faces with the nike edition for the same price as the standard apple watch. Battery life on the watch was one of the biggest things for me because with my pebble I only needed to charge it every 5 or so days (never made the whole 7 days with it). I got use to wearing it while sleeping, and being able to track my sleeping habits as well. With the apple watch I've come close to a full 24 hours. I normally put my watch to charge when I go to bed at night. I read up on sleep trackers available for the watch, but I advise against them since you may have to sacrifice time wearing the watch during the day and needing to charge it at some point.
A:Answer You can (with Apple Music) download songs to the watch and connect your AirPods to it. No need to have the cellular model or your phone.
Now, if you want to stream, then you’ll need the cellular version
