Apple Watch Series 5 (GPS + Cellular) 44mm Gold Aluminum Case with Pink Sand Sport Band
I’ve had every Apple Watch series since the original. This is the best one yet, the battery life is great if you don’t use the “always on” display feature. The heart monitoring feature is nice, and 32gb of internal memory is a good upgrade. I don’t see the value of the more expensive finishes, so I alway gets the aluminum sport model. The cellular option is convenient too, I like having it available in case I forget my phone a home or take a walk and don’t want to bring my phone. My only complaint is I wish I could have picked the black Nike sport loop packaged with the watch vs a black rubber sport band. I don’t like the rubber band as it either fits loose or too tight, but that’s not a deal breaker.
Although annoyed it’s currently on sale for $100 less than I paid, I love my Series 5. Always-on display, Seconal Meyer, and expanded health options are all on display. The compass functionality is fantastic as well. Went to the store yesterday without my phone. Listened to a podcast via cellular streaming and paid with Apple Pay. The future is now people, bring out the hoverboards. One caveat is the battery life is noticeably diminished compared to Series 3 (never had 4). That’s the only complaint though.
I like this watch. Ha, once I bumped it hard working on my motorcycle and it was going to call 911, of course I turned it off. Thought that was cool. I can also talk to someone while my hands are busy or by my side. Very clear. This is the first time I ever owned an Apple Watch. Very nice, works great. Does everything I need it to do.
I bought this watch after trying all the Fitbit products on the market. The Fitbit was ok but just never kept a charge and I was always having to carry my phone with my watch when I ran, which was ridiculously taxing. All I can say is that I wish I would have bought this watch sooner because now I can run and text and talk with just my watch and leave my bulky cell phone behind! It is a must buy!
Apple Watch Series 5 review: The best smartwatch gets (slightly) better
The Apple Watch is still the best smartwatch. Though the Series 5 feels like a minor update to last year's Series 4, it will fit the bill for the vast majority of people buying Apple Watches for the first time.Full Review

A:AnswerYour watch is connected to your cell phone. If you have a watch with cellular service, you can accept or decline phone calls using your watch as the call shows up on your watch face. I have not tried to answer a call using my watch, however I think it would work best if you had Bluetooth earbuds that were connected to your watch. There is a microphone and a speaker on your watch, so earbuds are not mandatory. You can simply “talk and listen to your wrist.” For Verizon cellular on the watch, there is a one-time $40 activation fee and $10 per month service fee for the additional device.
A:AnswerIf you buy the watch subsidized by your carrier, yes, you will be required to add cell service.
But if you buy it “off the shelf”, meaning buy it like any other item at the store, then you are not required to add a service to your carrier account. This is how our family has bought 3 Apple watches (all three capable of cell service) and none has cell service added to them. The watches are fully functional without a cell service added to them, even watches capable of cell connectivity.
