    Apple Watch Series 3

    I’ve had an Apple watch since they were first released. I love mine. My wife was having heart palpitations and I put my watch on her and turned on the heartbeat app and it read 214bpm. I thought it was wrong so I put it on my arm and it was 65bpm. Put it back on her and it was 220bpm. I said we are going to MedExpress to play it safe. They did a quick EKG and then called an ambulance. They said she was having a heart attack. 54 years old and as fit as a 20 year old. We didn’t think she did have a heart attack and after many test it turned out to be an electrical issue. While she was hooked up to the machines I would watch her heart rate. I put the Apple Watch on her to see how accurate it was. To my amazement and the nurses too it was spot on. Needless to say after she left the hospital I ran to Best Buy to purchase her the new series 3 watch. So many apps that track your heart rate. I would definitely recommend this watch if you have any health issue.

    Love This Watch

    I had just purchased the series 2 when this one launched. Decided to return it and purchase the new series. I was still within the return window and the cost was only $30 more so I figured why not. I am very happy with my watch. I am really enjoy the convenience of being able to check my messages and track my workout while I'm on my bike without pulling my phone out of my bag. It serves me well at work when I don't want to miss an important phone call or message and can not have my phone within reach. The breathe function is great. It reminds me to take a moment and relax. I am a busy mom and also an anxiety sufferer. Sometimes you just need that reminder. The activity app is also motivating and reminds you to stand up during the day. I did not purchase the LTE version as I am one of those people that can't go anywhere without my phone so I did not see the point in my case. I do notice it is a bit faster and has more seamless transitions between apps than the series 2. However, I would have been equally as happy with the series 2. This might sound silly but the dark grey band option in the series 3 was a selling point for me. I really wanted a dark grey band that already came with the watch vs. buying an extra one. I'm a one band kind of gal and prefer one neutral band and did not want black. I think it is well worth the money. People spend the same amount of money (or more) on other brand name watches that do not do half as much. It is all personal preference and whether or not it is functional for you.

    Gold replaced Rose Gold for Series 3. Great change

    Apple discontinued "Rose Gold" for Series 3 watches. But they changed the "Gold" color from the Series 2. My wife and I both like the new Series 3 Gold. It's somewhere between Gold and Rose Gold. And the wristband is a better Pink. The actual watch is, of course, awesome! She got the one without Cellular (with Cellular you will have to pay $10/mo to your cell phone provider for the watch). You will get all the same features on the regular Series 3 watch that the Cellular one has. The only difference is that Cellular will let you leave your phone at home or in the car and you will still be able to receive calls and texts on your watch. But most people don't need that.

    I just upgraded from the first-gen/Series 0 to this new Series 3 Sport model and am very happy with my decision so far. The battery life is great. I can easily go 2.5 days of continuous wear/use before having to enable power reserve. The screen is great as well. It's very bright, even in outdoor settings. If you have an older model and are on the fence about upgrading, go for it.

    Great Product

    The Apple Watch series 3 is one of the best gifts I ever received. I got it for Christmas. Personally, I like getting gifts that are useful and I can use all the time, and the Apple Watch was the perfect gift. I got the 38mm space grey, with a dark grey band and with only the GPS. The reason I went for this was because I liked how 38mm fit rather than the 42mm because the 38mm looked simpler on the wrist. Also, the same reason I went for the color scheme space grey and dark grey band because it was just simple. I went for the GPS only version because I don't think I really needed the cellular version because I always have my phone with me. It is a great option to have so maybe, I might upgrade in the future. Before receiving the Apple Watch, I never owned or really wore a watch frequently. But on special occasions, I would use my brothers for that night. I was debating if I would get up every morning and put it on right away. Since I have had for about 2 months, that exactly what I have been doing. It's on my wrist since the moment I wake up to the time I go to sleep. The Apple Watch is very useful since I am into fitness and staying healthy. There are plenty of apps for the Apple Watch for fitness and health. When I go to work out, I can just leave my phone in the car and have my workout plan in my watch. There are pretty cool weather apps, games for when your waiting in line for something and your bored, and easy calculators to use to tip. One thing that I notice is the apps open really quick. There is nice features already installed, like, telling you to stand up for a minute or to just breath. When you misplace your phone, you can ping it from the watch and your phone will ring. I still haven't had use of the waterproof feature but it's a nice thing to have in case of an emergency. One really cool feature is the screen saver or the "Watch Face" for the apple watch. The default watch faces are photos, time-lapse, and animations. You can also have whatever photo you want that you find online or have in your photo album on your phone. Once you have found a screen saver you can choose what you see, for example, you can have showing the time, date, battery percentage, and the weather, or you can just have the date and time. The best feature for me is the battery life. The Apple Watch will last for a little more than two days, and it takes very little to fully charge. When you receive a notification from a sports app or a message it pops up just as it would from your phone. When you do receive a message, there is no key board to reply, you just speak what you have to say and it will send it. But in order to send and receive phone calls or messages you have to have your phone near you or you can upgrade to the cellular version, and send and receive phone calls whenever. You can put it on silent when you are in class or business meeting. You can control your music using Bluetooth. The Apple Watch has lots of cool little features and apps. To sum this up, during the little time I have had the Apple Watch, I have no negative feedback and I really enjoyed have it on my wrist every minute of the day. It is a device the looks very simple from the outside but it is very complex and detailed in the inside. I would recommend this product to anyone who enjoys technology or is into health and fitness.

    The BESTTT

    I got this as a birthday present and I LOVEE it! I am able to track my activity throughout the day, how many calories I’ve burned in a workout and even text through it when I am too lazy to pick up my phone. Everything about it is amazing except for the casing color. On the photographs the casing looked gold but in person, it looked more of a rose gold color. I was disappointed on that part because I really wanted a bright gold to match with the different bands. The color won’t stop me from wearing it everyday however!

    It’s pink

    The watch functionality is pretty cool. I am enjoying it. The color, however, makes me sad. The new “gold” is pink. I don’t wear pink jewelry, but do wear muted gold. I ordered a 3rd party leather band with gold... does not match. If you like rose gold, you are in luck! Disappointing:/
