    Don't swim with this band!

    First let me say the 3 stars rating is only for the band and the fact you can't get insurance for loss of this product like you used to be able to get with expensive Apple phones. The actual watch part of the product is fantastic and I loved it! I give the watch part 5 stars. The band and lack of available insurance for loss get 1 star, and so I settled on 3 stars for this review. Was casually swimming in a lake, and after checking it several times to make sure it was still there and working it was finally gone. All I did was swim. The lake was over 170' deep where I was so there was no way for me to try and recover it. I read many reviews about swimming with it before I even considered taking it in the water. My fault I guess for thinking it was okay and not trying it in a pool first, but after reading about it on Apple's website, on several other sites and reading the care part of the product guide I put my trust in Apple like I always have. Even the box the other sized band was in said "designed by athletes" on it, but I guess they weren't swimmers. Since this is an Apple/Nike product then maybe the fault is on the Nike side. Regardless, I had my watch for less than 2 weeks and now I'm out roughly $500. I saved my money, used gift certificates and reward certificates to get it and now it's gone. Will be a while before I can afford another one. I didn't get to try it, but I would say if you do swim with the watch it might be better with the Sport Loop instead. I guess you could change back to the Sport Band after swimming because the loop is fabric and will stay wet from everything I've read. I love Best Buy and I love Apple and I really liked my band for running and working out, but I wouldn't recommend swimming with this band. Maybe I'm just unlucky.

    I pre lordered the day after the preorder went live. I selected pickup in store because I thought it would be quicker. My original pickup date was October 13. I got an update that said it would be ready for pickup on release date, awesome. Well on October 5th my order did not update so I called the store and was told the watch was tracked to a truck coming in that night and to expect an email that night or first thing in the morning. Fast forward to the next day and still nothing, so I went to the store. The guy helping me said he would see what they had in inventory. He came back and said we have it but for some reason it was put into store inventory instead of going to the pickup in store. I canceled my online order and purchased it then. But if I wouldn’t have gone to the store someone else could of bought the watch and I would have been waiting for months. So far the watch is great and I didn’t have any problems setting up the lte on Verizon, it took about 3 minutes to do. I won’t do anymore pickup in store orders but other than that I’m happy with the purchase.

    It’s a good watch, does a lot of things. I just don’t like the fact that if I want it to work using cellular connection I need to pay an arm and a leg to have it work ($30 activation fee plus $10 a month plus if you don’t have Apple Music and u want to hear music extra for it. The watch doesn’t have pandora or any of the other free music

    I purchased this to replace my old Fitbit. I have used Nike+ for the last 8 years so it was a no brainer over the standard Apple Watch series 3 & made using the NikeRun+ app easy. The heart app, as well as the Activity tracker are pretty accurate & easy to use also. Cellular service doesn’t work that well through AT&T.

    The watch itself is nice looking. It hasn't lived up to my expectations, I guess i thought it would do more for me when it comes to fitness and everyday life. However i do enjoy not having to loo at my phone every time i get a text message or email.
