    The good and the bad

    I am happy with my purchase considering the fact that I got it $200 cheaper due to a gift card from the phone that I bought a month ago. I did a little research and also asked a few questions of people I knew who already owned previous versions of the Apple Watch. It took every bit of this information to put together a decision on which watch to buy. My tech guy over sold some features, the casual user undersold a few, and the people in the store were all over the place with false information and idk’s which I specifically asked to see if they were just going in for the sale. Here is my early assessment of the Apple Watch 3 cellular. Good: The battery far out performs my expectation. I have plenty of juice on day three of moderate use. Bad: I had to dial down the haptic and notifications (I experienced sensory overload the first time my phone rang, headphones vibrated around my neck, and watch vibrated and dinged on my wrist all at the same time.) Good: Siri and the scribble feature to send text are my favorite features so far. Bad: The heart rate sensor gave me a reading while it was sitting on a desk. I’m not sure how accurate it has been when it is on my wrist either. I keep getting high readings when I’m just sitting still. There are a lot of apps that I’ve played around with and they seem to work fine. This, combined with the fact that I am not staring at my phone every 20 seconds is a win for me. I am very happy with the watch so far.

    Been an avid apple user for a long time now and had to get the new Apple Watch series 3 celluar! It’s an all around great watch, comfortable and very handy. The only 2 features I wish it had, that I’ve found so far, is I wish the volume would go a little higher for phone calls and I wish there was an “always on” feature. Other then that....such an awesome Watch and now I don’t always have to have my phone with me, especially when I forget it.

    Great Apple/Nike Edition Watch

    I did some research on the aluminium versus the stainless steel which I had before. I went with the aluminium and I am very happy with it. You can not tell the weight difference like people said in reviews that much. It does feel a bit lighter though. I am very happy did the Nike edition too. No reason not to do it and you get the cool Nike sport band. I had a Series 1 before and the Series 3 battery life is much better and lasts a lot longer. Only thing I don't like is the glass face scratches easier than my Series 1 stainless steel one did.

    It works well but still needs an iphone

    Many of the apps are still very dependent on your phone being nearby or at best the watch works like a very expensive remote. The “item included” or “promotion” of 3 months free of Apple Music is actually false advertising in that Apple gives away a free 3 month trial to anyone who hasn’t already subscribed to Apple Music. There is no Apple Music incentive to buy the watch and Spotify premium members still only have a very limited app (glorified remote) to use the watch when paired with a phone.

    Almost perfect

    This watch fits well which surprised me because I thought it would be too big or bulky. It tracks movement well and has great intuitive native aps that actually help keep me accountable. I especially like the Breathe Ap and even like all the reminders to get up and move. The watch face is beautiful--essentially a mini iPhone, but not distractingly so. My biggest complaint is that some ap developers are pulling out and not supporting their aps.

    Purchased primarily to replace old iPod for running and everyday workouts, Have not used the swim applications yet but satisfied so far. The heart rate sensor isn't 100% accurate, which will lead to inaccurate calorie counts for activities. Purchased the cellular option, but seems unnecessary at this point (haven't used it once). Save yourself the extra $100 if you won't rely on it for cellular function.

    It should be a lot further along

    No camera on it, can’t listen to music without Bluetooth device and Siri doesn’t use the phone speaker to talk back... great for hands free or a dirty job where your phone isn’t wanted but you want to stay connected... internally saves your text separate even if you mirror your phone... should be way more capable with how far along processors and how tiny cameras are but apple does it best with the suspense

    Finally gave in to peer pressure and picked this up. It's fun to have the capabilities this offers. Using it as a hands free device while driving, the audio is actually clearer on the watch than using the iphone on speaker. Composing texts is taking some getting used to but I like it. All in all, glad I made this purchase.

    Easy to setup

    Setup is a breeze with iPhone watch app. Would have been 5 stars but the cellular watch is not as independent as I thought it would be. I was hoping to run with the watch only and be able to listen to TuneIn or pandora on cellular data but the connection where I live isn’t quite strong enough. It’s still more convenient even if I still have my phone in my pocket

    I bought the Apple Watch Series 3 primarily for running. I typically use a Fitbit, but thought i would pay a little extra for more smart watch features and connectivity. So far it is good. I haven’t fully leveraged the functionality of this watch so far, but hope to get more familiar in the coming months.

    I received my watch as a Christmas gift. It is nice to be able to leave my phone at home when I am out & about. With my very limited knowledge of the watch I am enjoying it & I am sure that I will like it even more as I learn how to use more features.

    Bottom Line: My wife likes it a lot

    Personally I think most Apple products are overpriced and overrated for what you get. The two things they are good at (but it costs you) is build quality and style. My wife likes it a lot and since it makes her happy I bought it. Oh well....

    Its a great entry for smart watches at the discounted rate. Health and workout apps work best and give fairly good feedback. LTE models are only worth if its necessary for your profession or hobby.

    I bought a 3 to spend a little less on what is an experiment for me. So far, I really like the health/exercise tracking. I'm not sure there's any real value otherwise, but I'm still getting to know the watch.

    I’ve never got an Apple product at its launch, just don’t feel it’s wise with the rate that they upgrade. I got this Series 3 for my first born as he graduated and is off to college. Must say this may be my turning point, Watch is awesome.

    I love watch it does everything i want it to but the only reason it did not get 5 stars is within a week of use it has a stuck pixel. I’m waiting to see if Apple will stand behind there product.

    Better than Series 1

    I purchased a Series 1 Apple Watch when they first debuted. Returned it within a week. The new Series 3 watches are much faster, better features, and of course GPS and doesn’t require iPhone nearby at all times.
