    Great smart watch

    To start I was very skeptical about purchasing this watch even though I own and love several Apple products. I wasn't sure if a watch was a necessity. My primary reason for purchasing this watch was for fitness tracking. I figured If I am going to spend the money on a fitness tracker I might as well purchase an Apple Watch because I can use several application versus one like you get with a Fitbit. Very satisfied and impressed with the capability of this watch. Before purchasing just remember the watch is not meant to be used like a phone, its for quick glances. I find myself using my phone less because I do not have to pick up my phone to reply to a text message or even answer a call if I chose. Apple did an excellent job with this product and I have not experienced any issues, including speed problems, after having it for 3 weeks. The battery life of the watch is not great. Depending on what I use it for determines the amount of charging that needs to happen but it is not really an issue if you charge smartly. The primary battery killer is the heart rate. Monitoring. On a normal day when I am not exercising or monitoring my sleep patterns, it can make it a full day. On other days when I do both I incorporate a charge when I take a shower or working at my desk. You get a full charge at the rate of 1% per minute so it is easy to incorporate a charge within you lifestyle patterns when the watch is not needed. The design of the watch is great. It looks good on the wrist not bulky like I thought it would be and is very comfortable to wear. I also like the fact that I can change the bands rather quickly. On a daily basis I have the normal sports band on but when I go to business meetings I change the band to something more professional. It takes less than a minute to change the band making me want to purchase additional bands.

    Apple Watch 3 Nike+ Best Yet?

    The Apple Watch 3 was purchased to replace my series 1 watch. The original watch was good but fell short in some key areas. Battery life, water resistance, CPU speed along with enhanced sports functionality and accuracy with both Apple Activity and Nike Sport tracking applications are vastly improved. More than pleased with the extended battery life. I can now wear the watch to bed and track sleep with enough power to wear into the following evening before recharging. While everyone will have varying battery life experiences; I work to be active, run 4 miles every morning and reach all Activity goals each day. Use a lot of apps. Also use it swimming, in the shower and find the drying wet speaker function excellent while being quite unique. I could go on about the range of fun enhancements but will close with two of my favorite features: the new Nike sports band is simple and truly functional without being expensive or flashy. And, go all in for a cellular, GPS model as it’s a must feature to track, play music, and receive calls without using your phone. Last, you don’t need to break the bank buying a ceramic or gold case, just an aluminum case will do just fine. So, is this the best Apple Watch Yet. Well yes, at least until the next model. But it does fit most if not all of my key needs now.

    Nothing but satisfaction

    I bought this over two weeks ago and hadn’t have no problems with it, except for the fact it needs a special charger. Had to go buy another charger when I left one at work. I bought this over two weeks ago and hadn’t have no problems with it, except for the fact I need special charger. Had to go buy another charger when I left one at work. I purchased the Ticwatch first for a third of the price, after just hours of dealing with it and multiple missed connections with my phone and Wi-Fi I decided to return it and pay the full price for the Apple Watch. The Apple Watch has been nothing but great. I use it all day and at the end of the day still have 50% battery life. I’ve yet to activate my cellular ability. But my ability to hook my Bluetooth headphones into the music already downloaded to the device while I run is incredibly handy and has encouraged me to take up running again. Previously I was annoyed with the fact you had to strap your phone to your arm or try to hold it in your hand. Otherwise it would just swing around having your leg all run. This Apple Watch helps me keep in touch with my friends while at work and jam to music while I run. So far I’ve just scratch the surface of the features this watch has to offer. I would definitely recommend this to my friends and family. And rarely do I write a positive review this positive.

    Best Apple Sidekick

    I’ve had an iPhone since the iPhone 4 came out and I’ve had four different iPads, but I have to say this little device by far is the best companion for an iPhone. Siri on the watch is more responsive and can dictate better and more accurately then my iPhone for some reason, the notifications which are tailored to meet the iphones needs word great. The only things that seldomly bothers me is that like any other computer, it’s has its moments when it it glitches for a second and something’s third party apps have to be re installed but it has mostly happened with Instagram. The watch works great on its own without cellular even when your phone isn’t near but if your not using cellular then you can’t get any notifications but you can still view your calendar, you can still do workouts, you can even load a couple playlists. Over all I think it’s great. P.S. get a screen protector from best buy or online just get one!! I got one and I’m glad I did!

    Unlocked Watch won't work with AT&T

    Posted
    Tazcowboy

    We currently have 2 iPhones. I had the original Apple Watch and this is much nicer. Works faster, apps that wouldn't run on my old watch work on this one. Bought an unlocked Apple Watch Series 3 LTE based on the fact that it is supposed to work with all of the carriers. Have spent three days trying to get it added to my AT&T Plan - and I am now returning the watch. I don't know if the watch just won't work or if all of the many AT&T reps I spoke with don't know what they are doing. On the last call AT&T said that they had to mail me a new SIM for the watch and that I had to take it to an AT&T store, where they would disassemble my watch and install the new SIM. The Apple Watch has a built in SIM that is not removable and is supposed to be programmable. At this point the Apple Watch Series 3 has been out for nine months - so by now AT&T should now had to add one to an existing plan. Not sure if the problem is with Apple or with AT&T - doesn't really matter. Bought a product that was supposed to work, it doesn't work.

    I've been wearing this Apple Watch for nearly a year now. It replaced a Fitbit Blaze. I had always thought the Apple Watch was overrated and overpriced. Who needs it? Well, if you like tracking your heart rate, your sleep patterns, your exercise and movement, or any number of other reasons, the Apple Watch is for you. From getting text messages without the phone to answering calls while the phone is in another room on the charger, to having the weather or a timer or a calendar on your wrist, the Watch is a capable and terribly handy bit of kit. It does like a charge about every other day, but charge time is not too long so it is at worst a minor inconvenience. I thought the tiny screen would be difficult to manipulate but that has not proven to be the case at all. I am not a paid representative, just a satisfied customer.

    Awesome Watch!!!

    I had the Apple Watch Series 2 and this with the cellular is a awesome upgrade! Have had zero problems with the battery life and call quality on the watch! Have not tried a long conversation on the watch alone without using phone connectivity just yet and I’m sure it will drain the watches battery a lot if I did but this isn’t really made for long lengthy phone conversations imo it is made as a backup to if ur phones battery dies and u need a backup device for emergency situations or if u are going somewhere like a water park or theme park and don’t wanna carry around ur phone all day to make sure u don’t miss important calls or texts such as the babysitter who is watching ur kids needing to get a hold of u or something or paying for stuff at places like this with Apple Pay instead of carrying a wallet or cash with u risking it getting wet or loosing it! For that reason alone this watch with cellular capabilities is awesome! And the watch itself is even better than the series 2 was!

    I don't usually do reviews, but I have been so impressed with this Apple Watch. Got the cellular version, and I am happy I did. When at home I don't pack my iPhone with me, so the capability of answering texts or phone calls is very much welcome. Taking my grandkids to the park, or a quick run up to the store, and the watch is all I need. I have used it to track my laps while swimming, walks( works great indoors as well as outdoors), and bike rides. Like having the weather as well as time on my wrist, use it to control house lights, and use Apple Pay all the time. Amazing device. I also get two complete days use out of it, so I am happy with that. This was a great upgrade to my Garmin HR.

    I was lucky enough to snag this model with the new sport loop the weekend it launched and I'm blown away. It is extremely fast (coming from the original watch) and the band is really awesome. It doesn't trap moisture like the other sport bands. It does absorb some water so it takes a few minutes to dry off but it definitely doesn't take hours, by any means. I'm curious as to how it will hold up since it uses velcro to attach. I haven't activated the LTE yet since I'm waiting for Apple Music to launch to start my 3 months of free data. It's amazing how much more I use my watch to manage music when I'm at the gym or any time I'm listening to music. It's really nice when I'm out kayaking or on the lake. I can use bluetooth to play music on my speakers via my watch which is nice.

    I bought this watch because I had been wanting an Apple Watch since the Series 2 but I was hoping they would add LTE functionality to the Series 3 and they did. It would allow to leave my phone at home while I go on my runs. All I carry are my keys, Bluetooth headphones and my watch. This is muuuchh better for running. I wanted the Nike+ version because I am a runner and it has the Nike Run Club pre-installed. It also comes with the new sport loop which is great for running and everyday wear. The haptic feedback of the watch is great and I like being able to glance at notifications quickly and see if they are urgent. It does everything else well for my needs. The battery life is also great. It can hold on one charge for 1-2 days depending on how heavy you use it.

    I upgraded from a Series 1 Apple Watch and have been very pleased with the improvements! The Series 3 gave me water resistance, more reactive touch, louder speakers, cellular connectivity, GPS and is much faster than my Series 1. I purchased the Nike cellular and GPS model in space gray. I wasn’t absolutely sure about the new sport bands, but this has to be the most comfortable band I’ve ever worn! I couldn’t be happier with my new watch and highly recommend it to anyone in the market for a new iWatch!

    For the most part, this is a pretty decent watch. I love the activity tracking, being able to get news and weather updates as well as Shazaam my music without the phone being in my pocket. I really like the fact that it is monitoring my heart rate and warns me if I'm not in motion and there's a spike. What I don't care for, is that even after the software update allowing this cellular version to disconnect from Wi-Fi and connect to a cell tower, the cell connection almost never occurs. I can try to force it and I almost never can get it connected. We need a software update that forces the watch to connect to cellular. If I didn't buy the cellular version I would have given it 4 stars.

    Best Workout Accessory

    This watch has been the best workout accessory I’ve purchased along with the Apple AirPods. I wear this watch everyday and take pride in closing all my rings whether it’s a gym day or not. The talk to text requires you to speak clearly and the phone aspect is best with headphones. Once it is calibrated properly, it has been the best fitness tracker I’ve used. The sport loop is the most comfortable band I’ve used as well. I put a zagg invisishield and spigen case on mine and wear it all the time. I restart it at least once a week to refresh it and can get two days off of a charge if necessary. This is a great product for gym use!

    No real special features over the other Apple products. I thought the watch band would be reflective or something cool and have some items worth the investment over the normal Apple watch. I have an exercise function on the phone I prefer. I have been mad a couple times with stuff not shutting down properly. Etc. But a nice watch. I wish I could run pandora on it. And really wish you could delete the stupid stuff you don’t want or use on it. All in all. I like it. If I could do it over. THe normal Apple Watch is the same besides watch band is velcro and has a Nike stamp.

    I always wondered what the benefit of owning a smart watch would be. Well now I know. It supplements a smart phone really well. For fitness it is a must. Being able to go the gym or for a run and have the freedom of not carrying your cell phone is great. If you run in to the store and forget your phone, don't sweat it. I will always have a piece of equipment like this. Holds the charge really well and is well built. Recommend a bumper and a screen protector. Zagg is the only one that I found that stayed on well.

    I’ve been using a series 1 Apple Watch for a few years and held off until Christmas to upgrade to a Series 3. My wife and I bought them for Christmas and so far we really like them. Here’s a quick pro/con breakdown. Pro: Speed - considerably faster than prior models LTE connectivity - leave your phone behind and go for a run. Take your streaming music and get/send messages and calls. New watch faces - not a big deal but nice to have with the Nike models Cons: No dedicated podcast app Inconsistent gps for fitness activities

    I've owned Apple products for years. This watch has some nice features but my one complaint is "Man, this thing is fragile." I'm not a watch person so it's taking some getting used to. I do like how it "nags" me to stand up, breath, walk, etc. One word of advice. Get the AppleCare!!!! I lightly banged the watch against a door jamb entering a restaurant and the entire face cracked off. The cost to replace without AppleCare? $358 for a device that cost $429. Buy the AppleCare and get a cover.

    I'm into tech and prefer Android but use Apple also. But this watch keeps me attached to Apple. Samsung or Android wear doesn't compare to Apple watch. It always works and does a great job at doing it. I just wish Apple would allow it to work with Android phones. That would be my perfect combo. Apple watch with oneplus 5t would be great. But as for now I'll just stick with iPhone x until Android comes out with a comparable watch (doubtful). Highly recommend the apple watch to anyone.

    I wanted a watch for tracking my running. This watch is more than capable of that. The more I thought about it, I wasn't willing to pay Verizon an extra $10 a month for a cellular connection on the watch that I'd only need if I didn't have my phone with me. So I ended up returning this watch and saving some money by getting the gps only version. I've been very happy with it. Nothing against this watch, it was just more than I needed

    I've recently gotten back into shape and this has greatly helped keep track of my workouts. I also don't have to keep my bulky phone in my pocket anymore when it's inconvenient. (i.e. during workouts/runs) It has so many other useful features as well. It was very easy to setup. The only mild complaint is that I feel like if I'm wearing this out I might purchase the nicer strap to dress it up a little bit. For everyday use the strap is very comfortable.
