    Great smart watch

    Posted
    Reviewessay

    The world of technology is constantly changing. Hardware is getting thinner while screens are getting larger. Nowadays people are walking around with computers in their pockets, so it was only a matter of time before wearable technology took off. In 2015 Apple released their first version of a smart watch, the Apple Watch Series 0. Apple has three versions of the watch with the fourth on the way. I own the Apple Watch Series 3, which I think, is a fantastic product that shows the evolution of the watch series. Though there are many series of the Apple Watch, one thing that remains constant is the physical look of the product. I have the 42mm case, and I think it is a great size. The watch is small enough to not be an obstruction on your wrist, but it is large enough to use with ease. I feel as if the 38mm case is too small to use without accidentally clicking something you did not want. Another great physical feature is the durability. I have bumped the screen of my watch into many desks, doors, and walls, and it does not get scratched. The only time it got damaged was when it fell from about hip height onto its side. The aluminum casing was chipped, but the damage overall was minimal. Overall, the 42mm aluminum watch is a great size coupled with a durable frame. A big upgrade from my Series 0 watch is the GPS and LTE connectivity feature. GPS was introduced in Series 2 and has been improved since. Previously, I had to take my iPhone with them while going on runs, which was inconvenient, but now with the built in GPS I can now leave my phone behind and not have to worry about it. This appeals to me because I often go to workout and not having to carry around my phone is great. Another use of GPS is navigation without the depending on your phone. With this added feature you can now get turn-by-turn directions on your wrist. The LTE feature was added on the series 3, and it makes the watch even more independent than GPS alone. LTE allows the watch to receive calls, texts, and any other notifications once the watch is out of Bluetooth range. Although my watch is GPS only, I can see how having the LTE feature is beneficial to those who do not carry their phones with them at all times. These two crucial features help the product become more independent. A much-needed upgrade from the Series 0 is the improvement of battery life. With moderate use the Series 0 needed to be charged everyday, but with the same usage the Series 3 can last two to three days without needing to be charged. The Series 3 also charges faster than the Series 0. These improvements are rooted in an upgrade of the battery size itself; the battery in the new models of the watch is around fifteen percent bigger than the one preceding it. The size of the watch also plays a miniscule role in battery life. The larger casing has a larger battery, which leads to a better battery life. This pattern of larger products housing larger batteries can be seen in the iPhones with the difference in battery between regular and plus sized products. Faster charging and longer lasting battery allows for less time plugged in making the watch much better than what it was. The driving point for me to upgrade was the waterproofness of the watch. The Series 0 was water resistant meaning it could function properly in the rain, if your wrist got wet, or even with lots of sweat, but you could not swim with it on. Apple added this waterproof feature on the Series 2. However, the word waterproof comes with a caveat, it is waterproof only up to 50 meters under water. When making my purchase I did not consider this as a downside because I knew I would not be going to that depth. The waterproofing is integrated with the workout tracking on the watch’s software, and it can track any number of swim related workouts. I often swim for exercise, so I found this to be a helpful feature. One thing I found unique about this was its ability to remove water from ports on the watch. When you press the water droplet icon in the control center and turn the digital crown, the watch emits a high frequency sound, which vibrates all internal speakers pushing the water out from the watch. I found this to be a unique way for the Apple Watch to have all the same openings, but still be able to be waterproof. Being waterproof is a feature that can appeal to everyone, not just swimmers, as water is everywhere, and water related accidents could happen. For me, going from the Series 0 to the Series 3 was a massive upgrade highlighted by built in GPS, improved battery life, and being waterproof. These key additions make the watch easier to use in day-to-day life. I highly recommend the Apple Watch Series 3 to anyone who is interested in purchasing a smart watch. Apple puts their best effort into their smart watch, and it is only going to improve moving forward.

    I bought this to motivate me to be more active. I have ADHD, so it's easy for me to get distracted and hyper focused into projects for long periods of time, and forget to get up and be moving. The hourly reminders to stand up and move around are great, as they prompt me to get up and be more active. Also, closing my 'activity rings' offers motivation to go work out, regardless of whether I'm in the mood to haha! I was surprised at how handy the ability to see and respond to phone calls and messages was, as I had figured that would just be a fun novelty. Instead, I've encountered numerous situations where being able to take a call, or respond to a text message, either with a quick voice to text response, or a scribbled response, was made much easier by not having to stop what I was doing and dig my phone out. (This is especially true when I'm in the middle of cooking, I've even used my nose to hit the 'reply' button when my hands were covered in dough!). I downloaded a free sleep tracker onto my watch as well, so I can track how much I generally get, and how restless I am during the night. I don't use that every night, but it's kind of interesting to see why sometimes I wake up feeling much less rested than others. However, for all of the great things about this watch, I do have to address the fact that the exercise tracker is severely lacking. It does not record exercise minutes with any reliable consistency at all. It works well enough when connected to the wifi at home, though I haven't done a full indoor workout to fully test that. But when I leave the house to go on a long walk, or on a bike ride, it does not record the majority of my exercise minutes, regardless of the fact that my heart rate remains up above 130 (usually ranging between 148 and 170 during bike rides, which is added motivation to get into better shape so those numbers can come down!). I completed a 10 mile bike ride, over the course of an hour and 10 minutes, and the watch only tracked about 37 minutes of it. Needless to say, this is very frustrating, especially considering how much these watches cost! Apple doesn't seem inclined to acknowledge that there must be a software issue involved, so I doubt there will be any good resolution for this issue anytime soon. The only consolation is that I can update my exercise minutes in the Health app on my phone, which is okay, but I really shouldn't have to do this for a device as pricey as this one. So, with that one major and glaring flaw aside, overall I'm very happy with my purchase and would recommend it to others, as long as they were aware of the aforementioned flaw. I have read that others who experienced this issue have simply downloaded a 3rd party activity tracker app and reported that they no longer had issues tracking their activity, so I might give that a try in the future. In the meantime, the other features make up for the problems and I can deal with manually updating my exercise times.

    The Apple Watch series 3 is the first smartwatch I have owned and I must say, I am very impressed. It looks great, functions well, and makes life easier in so many ways. Hopefully this review can help to solve any uncertainties you might have about purchasing one for yourself. --Who?-- Is this watch for me? This might be a question you have asked yourself. If you are a fitness minded person who lives a very active lifestyle, the answer is yes. If you are someone who doesn’t see fitness as a top priority, but rather prefers comfort and convenience, the answer is...still yes, this watch is for you. After owning this watch for several months, I have noticed how much it has to offer for people of all walks of life. Its capabilities range from calorie tracking, to the ability to play games, text, and listen to music directly from the watch. --Durability-- When purchasing this watch, durability was one of my greatest concerns due to the price of the device. I didn’t want to spend nearly $400 on a watch just for it to get broken a few weeks later. As the days have passed, so have my worries. My watch has become great friends with the corners of coffee tables, door knobs, and the floor of the basketball court. Even with all these harsh encounters, there is not a scratch on the watch face or a dent in the body. --Speed-- Anyone who owned the previous models of the Apple Watch is aware of the delay in response that occurred when any application was opened. The Series 3 is much quicker. The response time on this watch is almost immediate, even with multiple applications running at the same time. --Style-- The amount of customization possibilities allows this watch to be worn with any outfit. I can wear a rubber wristband to the gym with the fitness tracker open as the watch face. That night for dinner, I can swap out the rubber for a shiny silver bracelet in a matter of seconds. It also only takes one swipe of the finger to change the watch face to a classy white analog style. Overall, I am extremely happy with this product. The combination of style and functionality that it brings to my wardrobe makes it one of the best purchases I have made in a long time.

    The Apple Watch 3 is the best smartwatch on the market. That's in terms of out-and-out functionality and raw power, the sheer amount of things you can do with it. There are the inherent drawbacks, with the cost and the fact that you're locked to the iOS ecosystem the biggest for some people. But these are precisely the things Apple has designed the Watch for, so it depends whether you're on board with that ethos. There's a lot to love on this watch, even if a lot of those things are the same things I enjoyed on previous devices. We're getting used to the square design after a couple of years (and it does allow more screen to be seen), with the curved sides melding nicely with the OLED screen. The display is clear and bright, and with WatchOS 4 Apple has really cracked smartwatch interaction. Well, perhaps that's overstating things a touch – the method of navigating apps is still a fumbly nightmare at times – but the use of the power button to jump between apps is a real boon. The fitness side of things has also been improved once again, with support for more workouts. The greatest strength of the Apple Watch is the fact it's getting better at nudging and prodding you to get a little bit more active during the day, learning your habits to let you know if you're going to fall behind your goals. It's more nuanced than ever at this, and one of the things we’re looking forward to checking out further is the nudges it gives you to get exercising more – once you’ve worn the Watch for a month or two it’ll nudge you to try and beat your monthly activity to help push you forward. Siri being able to speak out loud didn't really impress that much – there aren't a lot of times when you want to talk to your wrist and have it speak back to you, as you can either read the screen, or you're out in public. The Apple Watch 3 is best for the fitness enthusiast, that's for sure. The longer battery life, improved screen and GPS / water-resistant capabilities are all perfect for the person who needs a workout companion, where the original and cheaper Apple Watch lacks in all these areas. However, said fitness fan has to not want to do advanced things with their fitness stats, as the Apple Watch still has all its data locked down. You can use other apps – Swim.com and Strava, for instance – but these are basic at best and we constantly felt that someone who really took their workouts seriously would be frustrated with the lack of data freedom with the Apple Watch 3. So the new Apple Watch is for the person who's comfortable working out, and who likes to keep track of what they're doing but doesn't have aspirations to really push things further. However, for the intermediate fitness fan, the Apple Watch 3 does it all - heart rate, music playback (and streaming) and GPS tracking in one neat, attractive package.

    I've had a smart watch before, and quite frankly, it wasn't all that smart. Constantly annoying me with irrelevant information. Having owned iPhones for years now, when the first Apple watch came out I was definitely intrigued. Then the second generation came out with more features and I paid closer attention. Well now that the Series 3 is out with GPS (the version I purchased) I couldn't be happier. It's a nice slick interface, just like you are used to with Apple. The watch faces are clear, and interesting, and incredibly customizable. I like the fact that it tracks indicators of heartbeat, distances, flights of stairs etc, without you even having to do anything to the watch. It's just doing it all in the background, so it's not obtrusive. You get reminders to breathe or stand up every now and again, but you can turn those off if necessary. Connecting your phone to Apple CarPlay, the navigation also shows up on your watch, and it vibrates when you are coming up to your next intersection or direction change which is pretty neat. Overall, I'm really happy with the watch, I mean it shows the time, just like you'd like a watch to, but it also shows notifications from my smart home, if cameras have been triggered etc (all via a connected phone) I didn't go with the cellar version. Emails show up nicely on there, as do attachments and pictures. A neat feature I didn't know the watches incorporated is the ability to talk and hear phone calls through it, very 'Star Trek'! Only consideration I have is to not club the watch off of walls or desks etc, being as it's an expensive piece of kit!

    An Investment That is Worthwhile

    Let me start off by saying my wife had to convince me to buy one because of the price. All I wanted was a luminox divers watch. I caved and bought it and also bought the catalyst watch case for it since I tend to be rough on watches and I spend a lot of time doing hands on type work and water activities like fishing. Needless to say the watch has really grown on me. I can answer calls on it, control Pandora from it, turn off my alarm (which is priceless, lol), set timers, track workouts, ensure I’m not lazy by beating my goals each day via the movement rings for exercise, movement, calories and standing. And on and on. Battery life is awesome. Mine will last about two days. I can tell time in the dark. The weather is right on my wrist. Etc. If you’re on the fence or you’re saying “but that’s a lot of money, you’re right. It isn’t cheap, exactly, it isn’t cheap. It’s a pretty awesome little computer that does a multitude of super handy functions right there on your wrist. I’m picky what I spend my money on and for me it’s been worth it.

    My last Apple Watch s1 died from sweat seeping into a crack on the face of the watch. I was seriously bummed out. So I was on the hunt for a new watch.because everywhere was sold out of the Applewatch S3 cellular+GPS , I looked at everything from the Fitbit Charge 2 to the galaxy gear frontier but none of them compared to the functionality of the new Apple Watch I couldn’t settle. I started to weight the pros and cons of the non cellular Apple Watch to the cellular enabled one. 1) I have a life proof case so my phone will always be with my regardless. 2 is an extra 10$ plus any hidden fees really worth it? No. Chances are the extra charge will come to 16-17$ just to leave your phone with you. 3 what are the differences between the two other than cellular capabilities? None. So I went to my local Best Buy and they had the one I wanted in stock. The new features are great. The waterproofing is a little gimmicky but it works. Kind of cool seeing the water expel from the device after a swim. The new chipset is leaps and bounds ahead of the series one Watch. The barameter-altimeter clocks everything in very accurately All in all this a great upgrade, a robust set of new features and well worth it.

    Looks - yep, Apps - yep, Accuracy - not so much

    TL;DR Having worn Fitbits for the past 4 years - I track heart rates closely due to having heart failure - I can say I recommend the Apple Watch due to its versatility. Definitely not its accuracy. The positives are available apps, water resistance, longer battery life than the first watches, and let's face it, a Mickey Mouse watch face. The main negatives are relative short battery life (2 days versus 4-5 days with a lesser Fitbit), and inaccuracy in exercise. Since I got the Apple Watch some 40 days ago, I've been wearing both my Charge 2 & it all the time for comparisons. Heartrate wise, they seem fairly identical.Steps however, were way off at first on the Apple. It always lags the Fitbit but at first it could be 1000s off. Plus, if you told Apple you were doing an outside walk and then did one for 15 minutes, it might only credit you with 2 minutes. Turns out there is a calibration step you can do on the Apple to get both issues more accurate. You'd think Apple would tell people about it at the beginning, but you'd be wrong. But even with calibration it still insists on evaluating exercise not just accepting your choice of exercise. In terms of exercise (however defined) the Watch severely lags the Charge 2. So get it for looks, apps, etc. Carefully Google the exercise part and be aware it may never be all that accurate in comparison to others.

    Love apple watch but it's limited in functionality

    I purchased my Apple Watch in Oct 2017 and have worn it day and night since day 1. The most significant improvement over my first-gen Apple Watch is better battery life. Where the first-gen would roughly last from full charge in the morning till 6-7pm, this Watch3 now easily lasts me 2.5 to 3 days. The battery does deplete faster during intense activities like long-distance running unless you turned off gps and heart rate monitor. After 6 months of owning, I only use below features and apps, as the rest of the first and third-party apps are super limited in functionality: - Watch faces (of course!) - Notifications from iPhone apps - Workout app to track my exercise and group classes - Sleep tracker app And that's it! Honestly fitness tracking is the only big long-term use case I see for this watch. Which is the one single feature that has kept me from selling it on craigslist. So if a friend or loved one asked me, here's how I would word my recommendation... It is a great way to track your fitness and see iPhone notifications on your wrist. You may find a few apps that enhance the watch functionality but it may or may not keep your attention in the long run. With that said, if in six months you are regretting your purchase, you can always sell it on ebay or craigslist and get decent chunk of purchase price back as Apple products tend to hold their value well.

    I have been slow to jump on the Watch band wagon. I've been interested in the Apple Watch since it made it's first debut. I have a job where I'm not far from my phone but it isn't practical to carry my phone around. I decided to jump in and buy the series 3 watch because it would give me notifications when I couldn't get to my phone. I am 62 years old and thought at first that is for younger people and I wouldn't get the same enjoyment or use from the watch. I was wrong, it may take me a little more time to know the full potential of the watch but I really do enjoy having it. I get my notifications at work without my I-phone chiming ringing or distracting my coworkers. That alone makes the watch worth having. For such a small device it is packed with several useful utilities. I have purchased several apps that also work on my phone. The watch is always with me , I find it comfortable to wear with the stock wristband the magnetic charger always stays in place and takes up very little space on my nightstand. I think this watch is as much fun to have regardless of your age. I am so happy with the watch that I know what to get my parents for Mother's Day and Father's Day. They will probably be lucky enough to get the Series 4 watch. I bought this at Best Buy when it was on sale for a great price.

    Huge step up from Fitbit and Android Wear

    I have previously worn a Fitbit and an Android Wear, and Apple Watch laps the competition. Apple Watch has a better form factor and functionality than Fitbit and better health apps and more overall usefulness than the Fossil with Android Wear it replaced. While still bulkier than a traditional watch, it feels much thinner than the Fossil. I was skeptical of the quirky band design at first, but now I love that the excess band tucks in. Set up was fairly straightforward, but the watch was a little sluggish out of the box. After digging around on Apple's site, I realized that it probably needed to have its operating system updated. After I updated, it was much zippier. I have found that the touch screen interface can become slow to respond or lose responsiveness all together. If I power down and back on, it regains responsiveness. Battery life is great. I recharge nightly, but it's never dropped below 70 percent (in part because Apple doesn't allow an "always-on" option). Like a lot of users I've read about, I've become somewhat addicted to closing the activity rings daily. Note that if you are trying to close the rings and exercising, you will want to start the workout app to get full credit for the workout. I appreciate the "stand-up" reminders, even though some users may find them annoying. I'm enjoying my Watch and would give it five stars if it didn't have those responsiveness issues.

    I’ve been using three Apple Watch for several weeks now and never thought I would enjoy using one of these things. The design is simple yet functional and very stylish. The best part is the notifications. I can check messages, emails, and app notifications without having to pull out my phone or miss an important message because I didn’t hear my phone. The activity app has also been motivational as it tracks movement and exercise and keeps you on track with meeting goals you can set in the app. I also find I don’t have to have my phone tethered to the hip when around the house. I can lay it down anywhere in my house and answer calls and texts without having to stop what I’m doing to go get my phone. Finally the watch is stylish enough to look good with a suit or formal dress without looking too “techy”. I switch between a sport band when I’m going out and the sport loop when I’m at work or home. The sport loop allows me to take it off and store in my pocket easily, which I do often at work where watches aren’t allowed. My only gripe is the ludicrous cost associated with apple brand bands. All in all, if your into apple products, they gave the watch the proper treatment and it would be hard to convince me someone has done a better job.

    Apple Quality

    This is my first Apple Watch so I can’t comment on the series 3 vs the Previous generations, but build quality is fantastic as usual from Apple. They definitely know how to build a premium feeling product. The watch is a breeze to use and very responsive with very little lag between apps. Siri is very responsive and accurate when using to text it’s almost as good as my iPhone 7. Call quality is rather surprising from such a small speaker. While not the loudest it is very clear on both ends of the call and is a joy to use and very handy. Texting can be a bit cumbersome at first using the scribble feature, but after a while it’s pretty fun and very accurate. Being able to customize from the watch app on your phone is a great feature with so many options to make it yours. I have to say this is an excellent extension to your iPhone and makes daily tasks a lot easier. I have it paired with my AirPods and together in the gym it doesn’t get much better. Very satisfied and would highly recommend.

    I purchased this watch open box. I was informed that to get the 48mm rose gold / pink band my wife wanted that the only one they had was open box. I purchased the item and drove off. The box was marked and inspected by Their so called professional's as no missing accessories and in excellent condition. Contrary to this i went home plugged in the watch to charge it and low and behold the watch was locked with a passcode from the previous owner. I called the store and asked to speak with the manager, and ov-course i got the whole " he is in a meeting, then he's out to lunch then ill take a message etc etc" I never got the courtesy of a phone call back either. About 3 hours later a gentleman from the Geek Squad called back and said he would exchange it for me. He informed me the watch was not locked on the backend of Apple. I came to the best buy again after driving over two hours back to the store from my home and a new watch (brand new) was waiting for me. I was a bit upset because they had a rose gold watch in stock 48mm that was brand new, so why is their associate telling me that they didn't earlier that morning?. Anyway after multiple calls and trips back and forth and lots of wasted gas and time this ordeal could have been resolved had their team actually inspected the apple watch when it got returned by the previous owner to make sure it was not locked and made in-usable for the next person. I think the team at Daytona Beach needs to be retrained on customer service.

    I got this from my wife for my birthday recently. At the time, I didn't think it'd be of much use to me, as I'm not a watch-wearer. Since it was a gift, and not cheap, I decided to give it a try, hoping I would not break it while working. I've smacked the sides and face of the watch numerous times so far, on accident of course, and there is not a scratch on it yet...I can't say the same for my arms and hands though. I like being able to look down and see the time, text messages, temperature, MLB updates, current song playing, etc without pulling out my phone to check. My hands get pretty dirty while I'm working, so it keeps my phone a little cleaner too. Another feature I really enjoy is the health aspects of the watch and included apps. It's nice knowing that my hard work throughout the day is evident on the health app, where it shows my steps, miles, flights of stairs climbed, etc....all in one place. Even if you are not a watch-wearer like me, I think you'll find that you may enjoy wearing this one!

    I’ve been curious about smart watches for awhile now but couldn’t justify the cost of the one I wanted, the pinnacle Apple Watch. Last year I decided to try a Pebble smart watch. The company had gone out of business and their watches were less expensive. I figured if I liked it, I could ask for the Apple for Christmas this year. Here I am, got my series 3 for Christmas. I absolutely love this thing. The display is beautiful. I now wear my watch all day, every day, everywhere. It has never “disconnected” from my phone until I left the phone inside and went for a walk. I never miss a call, text or important notification, even from Facebook. I love having the outdoor weather available at a glance before heading out the door. Thanks to MyGMC app I can crank my car with my watch. I’m retired and lazy, my watch nudges me to get off the sofa every hour. If I’m vacuuming and can’t hear the phone ring, the watch allows me to hear & answer anywhere in the house. All the while my phone is safely on my end table, not in danger of falling in the toilet or out of my pocket. It has notified me several times of a heartbeat at 39bpm & 118 bpm. Seems those might not be in normal limits. Oh yes Siri is on my wrist to answer questions. What else do you want? This watch is a thing of beauty and a joy for as long as it lasts! Get one!

    Here’s the thing, I am not one to buy high priced items often. I’m pretty cheap until I do enough research to be pretty confident that it’s worth the money. I watched review after review, some for and some against, before making the decision to buy the Apple Watch. Now that I have it, I can honestly say it is well worth the money! It does everything perfectly, looks amazing, and it syncs up perfectly with my iPhone and Apple TV! I’m not a runner, not really into working out as a whole- I do it only because I have to- so I was a little concerned getting it as all you really read, watch, or hear is all about the fitness capabilities of this device. It does have a great many things to help in that area, but that’s not all. It’s an awesome thing to be able to scan my email, iMessages, or even take a phone call, without pulling out my iPhone. So if you’re not a fitness buff, don’t fret. This is an awesome device for just about anybody.

    I had no idea I was so lazy!

    Thanks to the activity tracker on the Apple Watch I was now being notified that I am lazy and developed crippling depression. The Apple Watch does try to give me some positive reinforcement late at night when I am drowning my sorrows in a pint of ice cream looking at the three rings of shame. There are times the Apple Watch has almost convinced me that if I get up from my sedentary position and walk 8-10 miles in the next 30 minutes I could close one of the rings, but I’m not that gullible...I can’t even walk 1/4 of a mile without getting shin splints. That’s when I get angry and start talking smack to the Apple Watch. That’s when the Apple Watch tells me to breathe. Then I totally lose it! I rip it off my wrist and toss it across the room and watch it shatter. At that point I am able to breathe again because I remember I purchase the geek squad protection plan for three time the cost of the watch. Well worth it as I am on my fifteenth Apple Watch. Another great feature is that I am able to see what time it is when I look at my wrist.

    Not a good watch for cold weather running.

    This is a terrible fitness watch for outdoor activities in cold weather. The pause feature is useless in cold weather since when you are stopped running/hiking in cold weather you tend to run in place so the watch does not pause. The buttons cannot be used with gloves nor the watch face. So in freezing weather you have to remove your gloves. Also the combination of jacket, long sleeve shirt and gloves will stop or change watch functions when rubbing across the face. There is a lock function but then you need to roll on a small bezel to remove the lock that is impossible to access with gloves. Also the time it takes to operate the lock function adds time to your run. You have to access a different screen to stop or pause your runs. Battery life is useless on hikes. Even if I don't start watch until trail head battery only lasts about 5 hours when active GPS. There are more issues in cold weather that are impossible. I will be getting a Garmin a real fitness watch and giving this joke to my granddaughter. They could not have tested this in cold or rainy weather.

    I have to say I love this device, make life 10 times better and easier, many times I find myself sitting with my child on my chest asleep and unable to get my phone from my pocket, and this lets me know what is going on. Has so many features I had no idea of, my wife has one as well and we love them, they are so user friendly and so well built. I was worried and tried to do many different protections on it and all let me down so I talked to a store rep and said dont sweat it due to apple care if something does happen, so I have gone about a month now with 0 protection on it and I work outside a lot and doing construction and woodworking and surprisingly this thing and its scree is really tough and seems to brush off scratches pretty easy. I beat it up and it still looks brand new with the abuse I put it through. Great purchase. And I did buy the Series 3 over the series 4 because of price point but not at all disappointed.
