    Awesome Upgrade

    I sold my Series black 1 stainless steel Apple Watch prior to the iPhone X release. I knew I was getting the silver model and all along I had wanted the silver stainless Apple Watch. After shopping around I went ahead and opted for the Series 2 watch with the Milanese watch band and I could not be happier this decision! Since purchasing this watch and obtaining my iPhone X, the Apple Watch is the only smart watch I wear, among the 3 other choices in smart watches I own. Only Apple can make steel look and feel as luxurious as silver or gold. The Series 2 is also a major upgrade compared to the Series. The boost in brightness is a great. I always had my Series 1 cranked up to maximum brightness, but there's no need with the Series 2 , even in direct sunlight. The added water resistance adds a measure of comfort, especially when washing your hands and no longer fearing ruining a $500 investment from splashing water or submerging your arm a short length of time. What I've found really cool is the ability to have the watch eject any water that may get inside the speaker/mic grill. With the push of a few icons the Apple watch becomes a water ejecting, self drying work of art. The improvements in volume is another factor which makes the Series 2 a viable and worthwhile upgrade. I can take calls on my watch much more pleasantly now, hearing and being heard throughout my conversations. The GPS added functionality is great for directionally challenged individuals like myself. Lastly, I considered not ordering the silver stainless steel watch without Apple's Milanese watch band, and I'm extremely happy that I changed my mind, and didn't settle for a 3rd party knick off. The adage, "You get what you pay", definitely rings true with regards to buying generic brands watch bands for the Apple Watch. None of the metal bands I've owned in the past have held up so well, and continued to shine after weeks of wear. If you are straddling the fence on whether to upgrade from Series 1 to Series 2 or 3, the upgrades are definitely worth the slightly higher costs. If possible always go with Apple's metal or nylon bands. Apple's superior aesthetics and attention to quality leave the 3rd party watch band alternatives an option you'll never desire to return to after wearing your Apple watch in its full glory, as Apple intended.

    seamless smart watch for apple products

    The watch works un-remarkably well. I've avoided getting the original Apple Watch because I already had a different health watch that served my basic needs for a smartwatch (text and email notifications), but it was recalled by the manufacturer a couple of months before the new Apple Watches came out. Considering all the features that this watch has (compared to my old one), it was very simple to setup- actually, there was very little thought that went into setting up the watch to work with my iPhone. Any settings beyond the initial setup are mostly preferences since the watch essentially mirrors your phone's preferences. For many this will be a great thing. For those that enjoy setting up their devices might find this watch to be a bit bland, with regard to that process. It is nice to be able to make many of the changes on both the watch itself and the iPhone. Arranging the applications on the screen can be a bit difficult but quite doable once you get an idea of how to arrange the icons. The Apple Watch cost considerably more than the previous watch that I had, about 3-4 times as much, but only because I opted for a more expensive model, the basic model would have been about 2 times as expensive. Needless to say, I'm happy with the watch, overall. It does more than I could have ever wanted from a watch, which makes it very convenient for daily use. The watch does not come without desires for improvement. While the battery will last me 2 days, more would be nice or at least a way to turn off some features that will further help save battery life. The bigger issue that I have sometimes experienced random reboots when I attempt to open an application, maybe 3 times since I've owned it.

    Love the new Apple Watch Series 2

    I waited almost a year to purchase the new series 2 Apple Watch. The original watch didn't do some of the things I thought it should. I absolutely love the watch, and I'm learning all the different things it can do. I didn't know I could be Dick Tracy and speak into the Watch when my phone rang! I also love the fact that when I have my phone get directions , it shows it on the screen of the watch and indicates by a particular noise when to turn. I bought the nickel lined watch with the Milanese band as that is all BestBuy could guarantee with a delivery date, with the less expensive watches being sold out. I would not order it with the Milanese band if you are an active person, i.e., Engage in sports. It slips and loosens on my wrist when I do participate in sports. I have since ordered a sports band for it which I am waiting for. I would not hesitate to buy this watch again.

    Vast improvement from S0

    I was an early adopter of the Apple Watch, getting an original stainless steel during launch week. I'd really enjoyed that watch and made use of it frequently. Truth be told, I wasn't really even considering upgrading until a family member expressed interest in buying mine used and me just get the newer one. I got essentially the same model this time, but in Space Black for a change. Before i didn't use many third party apps because they just never seemed to load right. The S2 doesn't exhibit this issue. I haven't had to wait more than ~3 seconds for pretty much anything to load in. The biggest improvement in my opinion is the calling. On S0, there was a noticeable delay that usually ended up with both parties talking over each other briefly before waiting to allow the other to go first and then it'd happen again! This S2 functions as it should. I'm not 100% sold on the Space Black however, I kinda miss the pure stainless. The older one might have shown case scratches a bit more, but the black is super smudgy.

    Watch for non watch sake

    Hello All, I purchased this watch for two reasons the first being that I was interested in a new time telling wearable and the second to get a handle on this whole smart watch movement. As far as time telling price I wanted something that looks sleek and beautiful in any light. This price has that in spades and the changeable faces are an added bonus. In the smart watch movement I am echoing many articles on the web - you don't need a smart watch. It's nice to have and you can look at notifications at a glance. I still check my phone for emails and text messages but for the quick peak this does the trick. The other apps are light weight and the fitness tracking, for me, is a nice to have feature that I don't use - remember I wanted a new time peice not a fitness tracker. I would say if you want to work out get one that has the rubber / silicone wrist strap versus any other wrist strap it would be uncomfortable otherwise. I would recommend this product for those wanting to get on the bleeding edge of technology or for a nice time peice but you will be wanting more if you want something more from a smart watch... for now.

    Total geek with the Apple Series 2 Watch !

    Yea.. I'm spoiled... I have an awesome gamer (ROG) laptop, DJI Drone, GoPro and lots of other tech toys... but this watch just keeps me entertained and it looks brilliant with any band and watch face I choose. So, yea... there is just a finite number of faces available but its quite a bit considering each style of watch face is very configurable to any way you want it. I'd say the only downside, and I'm certain it's temporary, is that Apple doesn't allow 3rd party watch faces yet. OK, not a show stopper because this thing turns heads and many people have complimented my watch. My buying experience was challenging since I decided to splurge on it during Christmas season and it was sold out everywhere. BestBuy did very well to get me the exact watch I wanted within a few weeks. Very happy with my purchase and you can't get a better looking watch out there.

    Fascinating and easy to use

    I was originally looking at a Fitbit and read enough reviews that said if you have the extra to spend go with an Apple Watch 2 Series. I love the Milanese band with this model and I hope I learn to maximize all of the watches great features in addition to seeking a healthier lifestyle. Very easy to use and it DID NOT come with an overwhelming inch thick manual in order to operate. Thank you Apple! Also, the Best Buy employees (shout out to Nick and Ally) were extremely helpful in helping apply protective shield and actual watch setup to sync with phone. Again, great staff!

    This is just another cool gadget. Not really a "need", really just wanted one. Pros: always knowing time, know when I'm getting a call/text without having my phone in hand, physical activity monitor is great (but I obviously need to MOVE MORE!) Cons: expensive, mic quality, volume not loud enough, can't add events to calendar from watch, texting is kinda clunky, need more iWatch-compatible apps developed, and some other stuff. None of these are deal breakers for Apple Addicts. Look forward to future iOS developments/updates.
