Apple Watch is ready for prime time folks. Functionally it works so much better than my Series 1. Alerts actually show up before they hit my phone, bluetooth range is better, the screen is brighter, and it's waterproof. They also seem to have gotten the wake/sleep functions down to a science.
The only thing that's still falling short is battery life and charging speed. I wear my watch 24/7. That usually means charging briefly before bed and charging while I shower and dress. An hour charge gives 25-35%.
Looks wise, the new series 3 gold is superior to previous iterations. Not bling like the series 1 gold and not overly feminine like the Series 2 rose gold. I like having color, even though it means it's harder to find a watch strap.
I bought this for my daughter for her birthday. She absolutely loves it.
You cannot tell it was refurbished and the price was great compared to other places.
She has only had it for a couple of weeks so hopefully there won't be any issues with it in the future.
I was thinking about upgrading to a smart watch and decided to save a few bucks and get the 3 series instead of the 4. Really like all the features and additional control the iwatch gives you like controlling your music without your phone, answering texts and call from the watch, etc. The only downfall is the battery life. Be prepared to charge this at least once a day. Sometimes that can be annoying and honestly keeps me from wearing the watch all the time. Other than that annoyance of battery life, I really like the product.
Bought this for a friend (ex wife, believe it or not) and she says:
It is the best thing I ever owned. As a nurse was able to leave my phone at a locker. And still have access to my messages and phone calls. Kept me on my feet and I loved the not worrying about it getting wet.
I got this for my boyfriend and I because I wanted a watch I could use to text with and could instantly receive messages just in case there is an emergency. It also has a walkie talkie feature which is awesome! You could customize the bands for it to your own personality, too!
