    Not a game changer...

    I initially had high hopes for this product. I don't have all that complicated needs, I just wanted a system that would notify me of calls and text messages, as I often will miss these when my phone is in my pocket. I missed one important phone call and it took my family about four hours to be able to get in touch with me. After that, I have been excited about having something like the Apple Watch to notify me of incoming messages. The watch itself, is not very comfortable, and the sports band that came with the watch, does not fit well. I purchased a third-party watch band, but that also is uncomfortable. As for notifying me of incoming calls and messages, The application is hit or miss, even if my phone has a clear line of sight to the watch. I am not 100% confident that I will not miss calls or text messages in the future, even with this device. I think there needs to be a lot of work improving the technology and developing the watch so that it accomplishes a need and is not just a device to sell to Apple fanboys to increase apples bottom line . The battery life is horrible. If you set the display so that it only turns on when your wrist is moved toward your face, by 3 PM there is only 10% battery life left. If you set it up so that you have to touch the face in order to display the time, the battery life will last you all day but that is really not using the watch at all. They need to improve the technology for the battery, and possibly develop some sort of solar panel to charge the watch in the light. The watch itself is also expensive for what you get. I will not be buying the next iteration of the Apple Watch, in less there is significant improvement in the functionality and battery life of the product.

    My wife tried this watch. Wore it for 2 days and finally decided that the band is not for her. She told me that it is uncomfortable and seems to rub. This could be because the stainless steel Apple Watch is a little bit heavier than the Apple Watch Sports (the watch we actually decided on and purchase after returning this one). Anyway, we don't think it's worth the money for the band, or the stainless steel Watch version. Save your money and go with the Apple Watch Sports with the sports band. Please note that we also went ahead and purchased 2 aftermarket leather loop bands (no they were not the original $150 Apple leather loop bands, but a knock off). Maybe it was because the leather bands were a knock off or maybe the loop style design is either really tight so that the watch does not move, or it is too loose and then the band rubs as the watch moves (or the knock off leather bands from China were treated with some sort of chemicals that caused a weird uncomfortable itch). Anyway, knock off bands returned, the Watch with the milanese loop returned, and 2 Apple Watch Sports purchased - Done.

    Needs a lot to improve on. Took me forever to pair and sync and kept on logging me off my apps on my phone which was pretty annoying. Also, upon trying to return the watch i tried to unpair several times and Best Buy folks kept seeing that the watch was paired. They couldnt do anything and Apple support couldnt do anything. After several days of trying it finally unpaired and I was able to return the watch. A lot of promise, but still leaves a lot to be desired. Not impressed with the interface or the response of the watch. Definitely not what I was hoping for. Pretty disappointed. Hopefully in a few more generations I can justify spending $500+ on a watch.

    If your hoping that the watch will do just about everything your phone does you'll be disappointed. You can open some of your apps from your phone to your watch but it's limited access. Most of your apps will not work with the Apple Watch. When you are receiving a call about half the time when you press the answer button, it doesn't pick up the calls. The activity app is not that accurate. So if your wanting a watch to play around with, this is your watch. Other then a couple of neat features. It's not that much better then the watches that came out in the mid 90's.

    real time data including weather, stocks, scores, etc. only works when you have your iPhone with you...you can't swim with it and it doesn't have a sleep tracker as my $149 fitbit does (you can purchase an app but then you won't be able to charge the phone which is necessary every day - not the every 6-7 days fitbit only requires)....for a sports performance watch it is lacking and way expensive...if you like the design and the few gee whiz features I guess it could be worth the $500+ price tag

    The watch is really nice. But you can't create the scheme you want like you want it. The rest of it is not made for your everyday guy that has a physical job. It does some what help remind you what you need total. Only with certain apps work completely on it. Even dow some might say they work with iWatch, not completely. Again if you own a watch and use it during work, this might not be a bad thing for you. But if you don't, don't bother getting it

    I purchased the Apple Stainless Steel 42 mm watch. It was an open box item. When I arrived home and opened the box to set it up, I found it to be dirty. The band was obviously worn for a long period of time before returning it. I brought the watch back to get my money back because I did not want something that was not taken care of by the watch before returning it. I believe the Geek Squad should do a better job of examining items that are returned.

    I was expecting to fall in love w my Apple watch, but in a rare move for me I actually returned it. I found the battery life to be shorter that I expected and for the sleep monitoring and fitness functions, I actually prefer the FitBit blaze, even though the face size and design is more sleek on the Apple product. The Blaze , while larger, wears a little lighter in the wrist and is more simple to use and easier to see.

    It's a great idea but The battery situation is not ideal, the volume on the watch is also very low makes you ask why even have one. The voice command barely works and when it comes out wrong. The heart monitor and Health aspect is great with reminders to get up and move and monitoring your bodies activities. But a fit but can do that for the fraction of the cost... Overall something has to change.

    I bought the Apple Watch with sapphire crystal. It completely shattered within a couple weeks. Buckle on pants hit it. I think the bezel on the crystal creates a weak spot. Not worth the money. The watch itself is ok but not a need. Longtime Apple fan very disappointed with this product.

    The band looks good and the clasp catch is only moderate. If they improved the security of the clasp it would get a 4. If they improved the material to give it a better feel, a 5. For the price it is a good buy and works for a metal band. Just always triple check the clasp!

    Ok I love this watch simply because it's an Apple product. However it's really not very easy to use and because it seems difficult I haven't even spent much time trying to figure it out. If I had a trial version of it I wouldn't have bought it.

    Unnecessary Toy

    The watch was sleek looking and modern. The need for the Apple Watch was more of a want than a need. It did not meet my expectations nor did it meet a daily need for the price tag. Just a toy that meets the wants not the needs.

    I returned this and got the sport version. 1/2 the price and lighter on my wrist. This watch is nice, but I didn't feel it was worth almost double the price. No complaints about functionality.

    Love apple products until this one, lacking GPS, terrible lagging when using apps on the product, as well as poor quality when making calls from it.
