    The Apple Watch series 3 is the first smartwatch I have owned and I must say, I am very impressed. It looks great, functions well, and makes life easier in so many ways. Hopefully this review can help to solve any uncertainties you might have about purchasing one for yourself. --Who?-- Is this watch for me? This might be a question you have asked yourself. If you are a fitness minded person who lives a very active lifestyle, the answer is yes. If you are someone who doesn’t see fitness as a top priority, but rather prefers comfort and convenience, the answer is...still yes, this watch is for you. After owning this watch for several months, I have noticed how much it has to offer for people of all walks of life. Its capabilities range from calorie tracking, to the ability to play games, text, and listen to music directly from the watch. --Durability-- When purchasing this watch, durability was one of my greatest concerns due to the price of the device. I didn’t want to spend nearly $400 on a watch just for it to get broken a few weeks later. As the days have passed, so have my worries. My watch has become great friends with the corners of coffee tables, door knobs, and the floor of the basketball court. Even with all these harsh encounters, there is not a scratch on the watch face or a dent in the body. --Speed-- Anyone who owned the previous models of the Apple Watch is aware of the delay in response that occurred when any application was opened. The Series 3 is much quicker. The response time on this watch is almost immediate, even with multiple applications running at the same time. --Style-- The amount of customization possibilities allows this watch to be worn with any outfit. I can wear a rubber wristband to the gym with the fitness tracker open as the watch face. That night for dinner, I can swap out the rubber for a shiny silver bracelet in a matter of seconds. It also only takes one swipe of the finger to change the watch face to a classy white analog style. Overall, I am extremely happy with this product. The combination of style and functionality that it brings to my wardrobe makes it one of the best purchases I have made in a long time.

    My last Apple Watch s1 died from sweat seeping into a crack on the face of the watch. I was seriously bummed out. So I was on the hunt for a new watch.because everywhere was sold out of the Applewatch S3 cellular+GPS , I looked at everything from the Fitbit Charge 2 to the galaxy gear frontier but none of them compared to the functionality of the new Apple Watch I couldn’t settle. I started to weight the pros and cons of the non cellular Apple Watch to the cellular enabled one. 1) I have a life proof case so my phone will always be with my regardless. 2 is an extra 10$ plus any hidden fees really worth it? No. Chances are the extra charge will come to 16-17$ just to leave your phone with you. 3 what are the differences between the two other than cellular capabilities? None. So I went to my local Best Buy and they had the one I wanted in stock. The new features are great. The waterproofing is a little gimmicky but it works. Kind of cool seeing the water expel from the device after a swim. The new chipset is leaps and bounds ahead of the series one Watch. The barameter-altimeter clocks everything in very accurately All in all this a great upgrade, a robust set of new features and well worth it.

    I've had a smart watch before, and quite frankly, it wasn't all that smart. Constantly annoying me with irrelevant information. Having owned iPhones for years now, when the first Apple watch came out I was definitely intrigued. Then the second generation came out with more features and I paid closer attention. Well now that the Series 3 is out with GPS (the version I purchased) I couldn't be happier. It's a nice slick interface, just like you are used to with Apple. The watch faces are clear, and interesting, and incredibly customizable. I like the fact that it tracks indicators of heartbeat, distances, flights of stairs etc, without you even having to do anything to the watch. It's just doing it all in the background, so it's not obtrusive. You get reminders to breathe or stand up every now and again, but you can turn those off if necessary. Connecting your phone to Apple CarPlay, the navigation also shows up on your watch, and it vibrates when you are coming up to your next intersection or direction change which is pretty neat. Overall, I'm really happy with the watch, I mean it shows the time, just like you'd like a watch to, but it also shows notifications from my smart home, if cameras have been triggered etc (all via a connected phone) I didn't go with the cellar version. Emails show up nicely on there, as do attachments and pictures. A neat feature I didn't know the watches incorporated is the ability to talk and hear phone calls through it, very 'Star Trek'! Only consideration I have is to not club the watch off of walls or desks etc, being as it's an expensive piece of kit!

    An Investment That is Worthwhile

    Let me start off by saying my wife had to convince me to buy one because of the price. All I wanted was a luminox divers watch. I caved and bought it and also bought the catalyst watch case for it since I tend to be rough on watches and I spend a lot of time doing hands on type work and water activities like fishing. Needless to say the watch has really grown on me. I can answer calls on it, control Pandora from it, turn off my alarm (which is priceless, lol), set timers, track workouts, ensure I’m not lazy by beating my goals each day via the movement rings for exercise, movement, calories and standing. And on and on. Battery life is awesome. Mine will last about two days. I can tell time in the dark. The weather is right on my wrist. Etc. If you’re on the fence or you’re saying “but that’s a lot of money, you’re right. It isn’t cheap, exactly, it isn’t cheap. It’s a pretty awesome little computer that does a multitude of super handy functions right there on your wrist. I’m picky what I spend my money on and for me it’s been worth it.

    Love apple watch but it's limited in functionality

    I purchased my Apple Watch in Oct 2017 and have worn it day and night since day 1. The most significant improvement over my first-gen Apple Watch is better battery life. Where the first-gen would roughly last from full charge in the morning till 6-7pm, this Watch3 now easily lasts me 2.5 to 3 days. The battery does deplete faster during intense activities like long-distance running unless you turned off gps and heart rate monitor. After 6 months of owning, I only use below features and apps, as the rest of the first and third-party apps are super limited in functionality: - Watch faces (of course!) - Notifications from iPhone apps - Workout app to track my exercise and group classes - Sleep tracker app And that's it! Honestly fitness tracking is the only big long-term use case I see for this watch. Which is the one single feature that has kept me from selling it on craigslist. So if a friend or loved one asked me, here's how I would word my recommendation... It is a great way to track your fitness and see iPhone notifications on your wrist. You may find a few apps that enhance the watch functionality but it may or may not keep your attention in the long run. With that said, if in six months you are regretting your purchase, you can always sell it on ebay or craigslist and get decent chunk of purchase price back as Apple products tend to hold their value well.

    Looks - yep, Apps - yep, Accuracy - not so much

    TL;DR Having worn Fitbits for the past 4 years - I track heart rates closely due to having heart failure - I can say I recommend the Apple Watch due to its versatility. Definitely not its accuracy. The positives are available apps, water resistance, longer battery life than the first watches, and let's face it, a Mickey Mouse watch face. The main negatives are relative short battery life (2 days versus 4-5 days with a lesser Fitbit), and inaccuracy in exercise. Since I got the Apple Watch some 40 days ago, I've been wearing both my Charge 2 & it all the time for comparisons. Heartrate wise, they seem fairly identical.Steps however, were way off at first on the Apple. It always lags the Fitbit but at first it could be 1000s off. Plus, if you told Apple you were doing an outside walk and then did one for 15 minutes, it might only credit you with 2 minutes. Turns out there is a calibration step you can do on the Apple to get both issues more accurate. You'd think Apple would tell people about it at the beginning, but you'd be wrong. But even with calibration it still insists on evaluating exercise not just accepting your choice of exercise. In terms of exercise (however defined) the Watch severely lags the Charge 2. So get it for looks, apps, etc. Carefully Google the exercise part and be aware it may never be all that accurate in comparison to others.

    Huge step up from Fitbit and Android Wear

    I have previously worn a Fitbit and an Android Wear, and Apple Watch laps the competition. Apple Watch has a better form factor and functionality than Fitbit and better health apps and more overall usefulness than the Fossil with Android Wear it replaced. While still bulkier than a traditional watch, it feels much thinner than the Fossil. I was skeptical of the quirky band design at first, but now I love that the excess band tucks in. Set up was fairly straightforward, but the watch was a little sluggish out of the box. After digging around on Apple's site, I realized that it probably needed to have its operating system updated. After I updated, it was much zippier. I have found that the touch screen interface can become slow to respond or lose responsiveness all together. If I power down and back on, it regains responsiveness. Battery life is great. I recharge nightly, but it's never dropped below 70 percent (in part because Apple doesn't allow an "always-on" option). Like a lot of users I've read about, I've become somewhat addicted to closing the activity rings daily. Note that if you are trying to close the rings and exercising, you will want to start the workout app to get full credit for the workout. I appreciate the "stand-up" reminders, even though some users may find them annoying. I'm enjoying my Watch and would give it five stars if it didn't have those responsiveness issues.

    I purchased this watch open box. I was informed that to get the 48mm rose gold / pink band my wife wanted that the only one they had was open box. I purchased the item and drove off. The box was marked and inspected by Their so called professional's as no missing accessories and in excellent condition. Contrary to this i went home plugged in the watch to charge it and low and behold the watch was locked with a passcode from the previous owner. I called the store and asked to speak with the manager, and ov-course i got the whole " he is in a meeting, then he's out to lunch then ill take a message etc etc" I never got the courtesy of a phone call back either. About 3 hours later a gentleman from the Geek Squad called back and said he would exchange it for me. He informed me the watch was not locked on the backend of Apple. I came to the best buy again after driving over two hours back to the store from my home and a new watch (brand new) was waiting for me. I was a bit upset because they had a rose gold watch in stock 48mm that was brand new, so why is their associate telling me that they didn't earlier that morning?. Anyway after multiple calls and trips back and forth and lots of wasted gas and time this ordeal could have been resolved had their team actually inspected the apple watch when it got returned by the previous owner to make sure it was not locked and made in-usable for the next person. I think the team at Daytona Beach needs to be retrained on customer service.
