    Nike Series 3 Watch is Great!

    Bought this Nike Series 3 to replace my original Series 1 watch. The screen is many, many times brighter, it processes apps much faster, and I really like the band allowing air to flow through it. I loved my original Apple Watch too, except that the screen dimmed to barely readable over time and the battery was no longer lasting through a full day. As it was almost 3 years old, Apple would not stand behind it, which was very disappointing for a watch of that cost and relatively young age. I've never had any kind of watch fail in less than 3 years. The fix they offered cost about what I paid for the new Series 3 Watch, after discounts and the $50 trade-in value of the old watch I own Apple products from every product category they sell and before this they've always been great about standing behind Apple products that prematurely fail. I guess they consider their watches to be disposable after the extended warranty period of 2 years ends. Hope this one lasts longer! Beyond that, I highly recommend it and wouldn't be without it.

    Series 3 Watch Nike+ is great for exercise

    I've had my Series 3 Apple Watch Nike + for a couple months and have worn it every day. It was easy to set up and pair with my iPhone and AirPods. I opted for the GPS only model because I'm never far from my phone and I didn't want to pay monthly wireless bills. It does receive calls clearly if you are in range of your iPhone. Most importantly the Nike addition took my exercise routine to the next level and provides the data from each workout to prove it! It does pair with most of the equipment at my gym, but I actually just choose the workout (like elliptical, or strength training etc) from the watch. It is water resistant just make sure you set the water mode before shower or swim, it's quick and easy to set. I have to say I love using Apple Pay with my watch, it's so James Bond! I have several nice dress watches, but the Apple Nike+ watch is my favorite, I don't know how I lived without it!

    I've had my wonderful original Apple Watch since it has come out. This series 3 is so dang fast compared to it! Battery life has no comparison to my original watch that still has the original battery. I know that the original battery has worn down, but it's so nice to have something fresh that lasts more than the whole work day. The new strap is fantastic in this hot hot heat in Vegas. I think I'll probably have a weird suntan from it, but it's worth not having a sweaty and itch wrist. I really do like this wrist band. Overall, I use this to unlock my work and home MacBooks and Mac Pro's. It does wonders that way. Receiving notifications throughout the day is quite helpful in meetings. I also love the fact that Live Photos work as your watch face-- motion and all. I've got a cute one of my fiancee being goofy. It is just as light and just as good as my original, if not better-- I really do like this thing!

    Pros: I am really loving the activity tracker. It is definitely making me more conscious of why I do each day. The watch is really easy to use and it’s more responsive and accurate when dictating a text than an iPhone. It’s great that if I’m just popping out I don’t need to worry about grabbing my phone as I can use my phone should I need to do anything without it. Cons: A few apps appear on your dashboard which you might not want or need. I’ve not figured out if you can delete these and just have what you do want. Some apps have an icon but they don’t work such as weight watchers. And even though you can receive and reply to a WhatsApp message there is not an icon to tap to send a WhatsApp message which seems odd when it receives them! Not sure if handedness May impact step counter as I wear my watch on my dominant hand and therefore do more with the hand.

    Perfect Smart Watch

    So this is my second apple watch, my first was the 42mm series 1 which I also loved and it served me well. I switched/upgraded to this series 3 version, and a smaller face size, 38mm (I don't know what I was thinking, getting the 42mm anyway, I'm a female with a tiny wrist.) Battery life is amazing compared to the series one, there is still tons of battery life even after numerous workouts, and lasts til the end of the day. I found with the series one, I would have to charge it in the middle of the day, which was inconvenient. This one is also waterproof! I've had it for about a month now, and know that I haven't even used or explored half the features. I also love the diff Nike faces, which the regular watches don't have. I love this product and highly recommend!

    Apple (Nike) Watch 3

    Just received my new Apple Watch 3. I am replacing a Series 1. I was reluctant that I would lose the daily data in my activity monitor so I searched Apples support site and found an answer to unpair the old which would back up its data to my phone, then restore the new watch from that backup. Worked like a charm and I am happy that this new watch is water resistant and I can shower with it. I had screwed up the shipping address on the order and Best Buy’s Customer service was able to reroute my package to the proper address. I am an extremely happy customer. :)

    Watch for Swimmers

    I had to upgrade from my series 1 to this series 3 once I realized how efficient it is with lap swims. I love that I no longer have to worry about counting and timing my laps. Afterwards, I can just hop in the shower at the Y and not worry about my watch getting wet. I love the black on black smoke color with holes in the band (freedom—no more sweaty wrists—that’s why I chose the Nike model-the design-as I haven’t used the app yet) and it matches gold, silver, diamonds, pearls, beads, flawless, you name it. I look forward to the day when I can listen to music through my watch Bluetooth but until then I’m enjoying my Apple-Nike series 3. Cop one.

    Huge Improvement from Series 1

    Was truly debating whether to purchase this Apple Watch (Series 3) or proceed with Series 4. Considering the price difference and the capabilities of both watches, Series 3 was a more cost-effective option especially for one that does not have any chronic heart and overall health issues (the EKG capability of Series 4 would've been the only upgrade for me). But Series 3 is still a darn good Apple Watch and for those that have owned older models, this is a great improvement (all specs considered) from Series 1 & 2 Apple Watches. Worth the buy and the cheaper price, honestly.

    I had been considering purchasing a fitness tracker for sometime as I have always used a dedicated heart rate monitor which broke about a year ago. I am SO happy that I chose the apple watch!!! It's been great not only for logging my fitness, but I love using my wireless headphones (and no phone) to listen to music through my watch on long beach walks or while working out. The haptics on the watch have been particularly helpful. I love the breath app and I have not missed a call when my phone has been out of range and not heard it ring! I know that I've just scratched the surface of what the watch can do for me...and I'm really looking forward to discovering more handy uses!

    I had wanted a watch that could monitor my heart when exercising, especially swimming. Others I looked at weren’t rated very positively for the water. Plus I didn’t really need all the extra features of the Apple watch either. But Best Buy had an incredible sale right before Christmas so I thought I’d take a chance. It’s been great! Not only for swimming, but I’ve also found I use many of the either features, like the weather app, alarms and getting my rear up and away from my desk regularly. I’m getting in better shape because of it! I highly recommend it.

    Upgraded from Original to Series 3 and am thrilled

    I finally decided to upgrade my original Apple Watch to a Series 3 and I couldn’t be happier. It has improved in more subtle ways than I realized, when I really just wanted the GPS and ability to swim with my watch on. I use my watch for everything and the battery lasts so long that I can! Need a timer? A stopwatch? Send a text? Workout?Know what weather is coming? When your next calendar event is? All are right there, with just a raise of the wrist and your voice. Honestly, my Apple Watch is what will keep my an iPhone user, not my iPhone itself!

    I was hesitant at first, but this has turned out to be the best Mom’s Day gift ever! No regrets! It’s even a million times better than I thought! Everything on your phone is on your wrist & you customize it! Change your watch face to go with your outfit, mood, event. One of the unexpected cool things is the map driving directions! The highly motivational activity app features for move, exercise, stand, steps, heart rate, and the breathe app are stellar! Just don’t need a Garmin. This watch does it all. Text, email, calendar, phone, weather, wallet, etc-the sky is the limit! Love my 2 Awesome Sons!

    My wife and I were on the hunt for a fitness tracker and found these on sale and decided to go for it. Best choice ever! Easy to use, tons of features, easy to send texts from and even just check calendar events. Only negative would be battery life which isn’t terrible but I do wish could be a bit longer. I love the watch and the functionality, customizable in nearly every way and just a reliable feeling product! The smaller of the 2 in this series but still good sized, easy to navigate and fits great!

    Upgraded from original Apple Watch sport

    My wife has owned the original Apple Watch Sport for several years. The battery just has had it with less than 12 hrs of operation before needing charged again. So surprised her with a new Nike+ Apple 3 gps watch. Looks sharp, great functionality and battery lasts for two full days minimum before needing recharged. The battery life is amazing compared to the one just replaced, even when it was new (the battery lasted barely through the day). This is a definite purchase if you are just thinking about it, make the plunge.

    Apple Watch Series 3

    I got this for my wife for Christmas and she loved it. She had a series 1 and the back fell off after owning it for 2 and 1/2 years. She bought the extended warranty for 2 years and of course it fell apart after the warranty expired so she was not happy about that and vowed not to own another. We looked at a couple of other brands but ended up on deciding on this one because she already knew how to work it and I bought the cheaper one so if it died we wouldn’t be out as much money as last time.

    I’m really happy with my purchase & don’t regret switching over from Fitbit technology. The Apple Watch suits me a lot better & can be really convenient when I’m switching music on my Spotify, checking the weather, & when I use Siri. The battery life isn’t too bad, but it’s hard to find a good time to let it fully charge since I usually wear it to bed for my alarms. I really don’t have any complaints when it comes to this product though.

    I got this for my wife as a gift and she absolutely loves it! She uses it all the time and really enjoys the activity rings and the ability to track her day to day physical activity to know and remind herself what she needs to do and for how much more time. They are adjustable depending on your personal goals too! The bluetooth to your phone feature has a fairly long range as well. She can be anywhere within the house and always be connected to the phone.

    When these first came out, I thought they were a waste of money, but then I bought the series 2 and it changed my mind. The series 3 is definitely an upgrade over the series 2. The display is better and more vibrant, it is light years faster, more accurate in tracking fitness and steps and stuff. It’s very easy to use and sync with my iPhone. Definitely get one if you are on the fence about it.

    I have been looking at purchasing for a while. Finally went for it, despite lack of sales over the holidays. I have to say I'm angry I waited so long! The daily heart rate, activity, and exercise tracking is fantastic. GPS really helps in this regard. I really enjoy getting notifications on my wrist without having to pull my phone out of my pocket repeatedly. Apple seems to be adding new features at a steady pace, which is a big advantage over alternatives. Battery life is also great; I usually end the day with over 50% remaining.

    Apple watch nike series 3 is absolutely amazing, I love how sleek and comfy it is while wearing it on my arm, I like how easy it is to answer phone or to just used the voice messaging even without having my phone on my hand. The battery lasts long as well and the interchangeable bands is a plus.
