    There are so many things that I actually enjoy about my Apple Watch. I like that it's easy to use and easy to charge. I like that a flick of the wrist displays the time along with a different beautiful flower every time. The included apps are all very helpful and easy to use. It didn't take too long to get acclimated to the functionality of the watch either. My husband bought this for my birthday and at first I was upset at the cost. I slowly learned it was well worth it. I am a nurse at a hospital, and my husband took that into consideration when picking out this watch. I have put the watch to the test at work...not on purpose, but I'm in an environment where my watch IS going to get bumped and scraped. I must say I've looked it over and still not dents, and the sapphire glass is still in pristine condition. That being said, it was a good decision to spend the extra to get the stainless steel with the sapphire glass. I have not put it to the waterproof test yet, but I'm betting it will do fine. The battery life is always a concern on any device and this watch passes that test as well. From when I leave for work to when I get home this watch is away from it's charger for 15 hours, and still has plenty of battery life left. The only negative comment I can make is that there are a few minor scratches on the stainless steel case, but this I can live with.

    Skip the Series 3 if you don’t want LTE

    As an Apple fan I’m eager to get the latest and greatest but was bummed to hear about the data plan you would need for the LTE series 3 Watch. When comparing the series 2 and series 3 gps models, I noticed there is only a few slight differences.. so slight that I was hard to be excited about the series 3 gps only model when it wasn’t that much different from the 2. I was so excited to see Best Buy selling the stainless steel space black series 2 at a discount! It’s so worth it especially since the stainless in series 3 is for LTE only now. The watch is beautiful and chic in person with the band. The Milanese band alone still retails for $200. This is the exact set up that I wanted when the 2 came out last year... so glad I waited I’m happy with my purchase!

    beautiful piece, but battery isn't the greatest

    I haven't gotten too in depth with the features of it. Definitely takes a lot of getting used to, going from just a fitbit. Has a lot of features that i haven't even begun to figure out. So far, I've really only used it for daily activity tracking and notifications from my phone. That being said, I don't feel that the battery is very good for what little I've done with it. It is lasting about 18 hours, which is what its' description says it should, but I also am not doing anything with it. I think if I were using it for music during a workout or something, it wouldn't last long at all, so that part kind of sucks. As far as the piece itself, the quality is great, and the band is a really nice feature if you want a more dressy/jewelry looking tracker, and it's really nice to be able to read and reply to messages right from my wrist.

    Never thought I would use a watch so much

    First off, I don't wear a watch. It has always felt foreign to me, like the first time you start wearing a ring. But over time, you forget you're wearing the ring. The Apple Watch is very similar, but in addition to becoming second nature, it adds so much more to to my day. I don't take my phone out of my pocket unless I have a specific reason. No more random scrolling through Facebook or Instagram, instead I get my essential updates on my wrist and carry on with my day. I find myself more productive and more focused on my activity goals instead of wasting time on my phone. It's pretty crazy that a watch has changed my efficiency with my time, but it has and I'm not sure I could go back to a time without the watch.

    Best Smartwatch There Is!

    I bought this watch when I had another like it except in the 42mm size, just to add to my collection. I was hesitant at first because of the smaller case size which also meant a smaller screen, and also due to the fact that all of my bands are for the 42mm variant with the exception of one, but I haven't regret my purchase to this day. I love how small and dainty the watch is; for the longest time I had been using this one instead of my 42 and when I went back to put on my other after using the 38 for a while, I realized that I like the smaller case and how bulky the 42 was. I alternate between watches on a daily basis as intended, but I recommend to anyone interested in this device that you will not regret your purchase and love it just a little bit more each day.

    The apple watch performs brilliantly as advertised by the manufacturer, however, Best Buy advertised series II on sale (before Christmas) and without knowing the full product lineup available and some rush to buy a great gift, I thought I was getting a top of the line watch and then I found out the series three was available. I expected Best Buy would have pushed the latest and not pushing out old inventory. Then I found out from my son that you could buy bands way cheaper and I should have purchased the basic sport band and bought one of the nicer styles elsehwher for a fraction of the cost. With the $200 discount, I got a fair deal but not a great deal.

    Great alternative for Series 3

    The Series 2 Apple Watch is a great alternative for the new Series 3 if you do not need the LTE connectivity, especially if you can find a stainless steel version at a good price. I upgraded from the original Apple Watch and the speed bump is very noticeable. The screen is also a bit brighter. The best part is the addition of GPS which is very useful when I go on outdoor runs. Stainless steel looks and feels much better than the standard aluminum version. It also fits well with a lot of different bands. The scratches on the body can also be buffed out very easily.

    I thought about this purchase for over a month and finally decided that it was what i wanted for my birthday. I bought the stainless case and stainless band. What a great decision over the plastic one. Love the ease of getting it on with the magnetic band. Something the plastic one does not have. It looks really nice too. Love the ease of use of the watch. I can see a text message or a phone call easily from my watch instead of looking in my purse to answer or respond. The battery lasts a lot longer than i thought it would too. A plus. I am an older woman and I love the watch.

    Is it worth the $$?? Perhaps, perhaps not. You do have to recharge it at a minimum of every other night, so doesn't hold a charge real well. It's a nice watch but I'm not sure it's worth what it costs. Moving screen to screen with finger touch doesn't work great half the time. Have to keep swiping at it to get it to move. Little frustrating. Not exactly user friendly like I thought an Apple product would be. And am not as impressed as I'd hoped to be. Probably wouldn't have boughten it if I'd had a chance to try one out for a couple days first.

    I used my watch daily to work and for my daily exercise I loved it. I loved reading my messages and getting my calls without having to pull out my phone. I used my watch for 4 months and one day I was out walking moving my hands and the screen popped off. Contacted Apple sent them pictures and my watch was suppose to be fixed. They get my watch and deny it said it was a damaged watch. I advise everyone to put insurance on there watches, they are not long lasting!

    With watch OS3, this watch is ideal for every activity. I use it daily for exercise activity. The s/s watch band makes it super easy to adjust for any size wrist. Even my own wrist changes in size with the weather, so that is an advantage. The band is easy to clean as well. Using the watch for ApplePay is easy as well. The series 2 has built in GPS and is water resistant. Phone calls are convenient. The mic for messages is very good at interpreting speech. Cannot say anything bad about this watch.

    This is the most incredible device , second to iPhone, I have ever used/owned. ..and I am a techie Easy to use, text size adjustment, amazing features. never miss a text or call when phone is away because the watch sounds and haptics. Siri dictation is superior to siri on iPhone 7. I can't say enough about this watch. I believe the upgrade to watch series 2 with the sapphire glass is the best value. ❤️❤️❤️❤️

    I love Apple products and I really like the look and features of the Apple Watch , series 2. The new water resistance feature was the deciding factor in purchasing the watch now as opposed to previously . Surprisingly I am really enjoying the message and phone call features of the watch. The negative is the battery life...wish it were longer.

    This is a great watch. I can't believe how much better it is than the first series Apple Watch. The watch is bright and can easily be read in bright daylight; the processor is very fast and the ability to use apps like ski tracks is great. I find the watch very useful and a help in business as I don't have to rudely take out my iPhone every time I want to check messages or email or my schedule.

    I was waiting until I could get the stainless steel case watch with a black leather band, but didn't want to wait indefinitely for it (and didn't want to spend money to buy the leather strap separately/additionally). The salesperson extolled the virtues of this loop band and he was right......it is actually very nice. No issues at all with this watch and I find it quite interesting and useful.

    I bought this watch two months ago to motivate me to exercise more and so far I have lost inches from my waist and dropped several pounds. Texting and speaking on the watch are pluses too. I would have love to buy the ceramic case instead but the band is cheap looking plastic/rubber. I would like to have a choice of milanese loop band instead even though the cost is more.

    Apple Watch 2

    An upgrade from the Fitbit. Only aggravation is that you have to go in and click each activity seperately that you want to track, so if your working out, it could become tedious. Tracking heart rate will alert you if over the standard beats per minute while at rest. Waterproof. Can answer text and phone calls on watch as long as you’re near the phone.

    I had previously bought the first Apple Watch series, but returned it for two reasons- 1) the 2nd series would be coming out soon 2) I couldn't control my music from Spotify on the watch. I purchased this watch in excellent condition in opened box for about $50 less than original price. I am now able to control my music with the watch and am overall happy with my purchase.

    I've had this watch a little over a month. Highly recommend the iPhoneII. Head & shoulders over the iPhone.Best part is getting lessons from the GeekSquad. Wait to learn a little, then go in to ask q's & get free lessons on operation. Also love the stainless steel magnetic wristband.

    I purchased this as a gift for my son, who wasn't even sure he wanted an Apple watch. This one was actually the only one I could locate as a Xmas gift. My son has been thrilled with its performance and capabilities. It has far superseded our expectations. The sales associated that helped me at Best Buy was ever so friendly and helpful, even during the busiest time of the season.
