    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.

    I never thought I needed an Apple watch...and quite honestly...I still don't have a need for it. It went on sale for a great price..so I took the leap. As a watch, it serves its purpose. I can get the time and even the weather with a slight turn of the wrist. What I didn't expect was the usage I would get from the fitness app. Three little rings would mean nothing to me normally... until I found myself taking a brisk walk (as prompted by the watch) last night to close my third ring for the first time. The breathe app is good one as well...I may not always do it, but its like a good friend whispering in your ear to just relax. I am confident that I have barely scratched the surface of the watch's capabilities. One feature that I've really enjoyed is the ability to control the volume (and music) for my airpods without having to pull out my phone. The smaller size is easy to read and use...and doesn't feel like I have a TV on my wrist. I'd buy again...but I'll wait a few series...this one is more than enough to satisfy the needs I never knew I had.

    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!

    Buyers remorse on the Apple Watch

    I did not look at the reviews before making this purchase and I blame myself. I do not like this watch because it cannot go two full days on a charge. It has to be charged every other day which to me is very frustrating. I am a teacher and I need to be on time with my students and my assignments. It is very frustrating to look at my watch and believe that it will tell me the time only to realize that it has died in the middle of the day so I always have to have my old watch on standby for when this happens which means I need to continue to wear “old faithful “ everyday anyway. Will I recommend this to anyone, certainly NOT!!!!!!!!!!!! I wish that I could return this watch plus the extras that I bought after making this purchase! Not a happy customer!

    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!

    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.

    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. :)

    Not for Runners

    This is supposedly for working out with but it was not built for athletes, the screen is unusable after you work up a sweat. The nike app and other running apps constantly crash during runs and completely ruin my mileage tracking. The old Nike TomTom watch had a nice slap feature for interval training that is nowhere on this watch, and the lap timer on this one is terrible, trying to fiddle with it to make the screen turn back on and push a screen button to do a lap count (which doesn't work because I am too sweaty at this point). This watch does alright for office use and displaying notifications when I get a message or call but as a athletic watch it falls on its face.

    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.

    I am an Apple fan and love the easy connectivity and functionality between devices. I am however having issues with the "Exercise" feature. Doing an "Elliptical" exercise works perfectly. Choosing "other" works although basically it is set up to give you a minute to minute credit for anything you are doing. But choosing "Outdoor Walk" does not close the 30 minutes Exercise Ring after more than 30 minutes at relatively high heart rates. Apple sent me a replacement which still does not appear to work but I have not tested it properly to know for sure. A side note - I hate Best Buy's 14 or 15 day return policy. I know of no other company that has such a short return.

    Huge Improvement from Series 1

    • My Best Buy® MemberMember

    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.

    Great tech, replaced my Fitbit

    After my Fitbit band broke 2 years into owning it, I decided to get a replacement. During that time I opted for the Apple Watch since I already own an iPhone, Mac and iPad. I opted for the Nike band since it’s more airy - I had th problem with the Fitbit giving me a rash since it was too close to the skin at all times. Now months into owning the Apple Watch, it’s convenient for simple updates however it’s nit a replacement for your phone. You can only see snippets of your email and can’t really use it wholly for any one app. Mostly you get 5% utility on iPhone app capabilities on the watch.

    Screen size is too small

    Could use a longer battery life, screen size is too small so I went with 42mm and my wrist aren’t even that wide. To be able to read anything on the watch, standard should be 42”. Watch does what it’s suppose to do, I didn’t DL any new apps. It can skip songs, reply to text n read emails. Just have to remember it is a WATCH, don’t try to have a full blown conversation thru it. It’s meant for convenience in an environment where u have ur phone on the other side of the house or a place where having a phone in ur hands aren’t acceptable

    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!

    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!

    This apple watch is pretty amazing. The only issue I have with it, is that the screen scratches very easily. It had two large scratches on the first day. I wasn’t even being very rough with it or anything, I was actually trying to be very careful. I randomly looked down at it and saw the scratches, so was forced to buy a case for the watch. This case makes it a little less than ideal with it sometimes making it unresponsive (hard to press the screen/buttons). Other than this minor inconvience, it is a great product overall.

    Swollen battery & problems with zoom

    My apple watch had a swollen battery that cracked and popped up the screen. The geek squad rep at Best Buy @ Jersey City made me wait for more than half an hour, and when I looked for him, he was doing something else. He did not care at all and he said that they could not do anything about it. Additionally, the watch zoomed in and I could not control it. I sent it to Apple, and the technician said that they could not find anything wrong. So, the same problem was repeated after I received the Apple watch.
