    I got this because my Fitbit flex wasn't performing to my expectations. I was concerned that if I got an Apple Watch that was returned as an open box, there would be issues. Sure enough, the first watch was still connected to the previous owner. When I took it back to the store, the guys in customer service were really helpful and gracious enough to give me the other open box watch (this one) that was more expensive. I'm satisfied with the purchase. I'm able to monitor more than just my steps. I'm starting a doctor monitored weight loss program and this watch will help me monitor my pulse and heart rate, and a host of other activities.

    I loved the watch when it worked. One day i simply sat a box down in my office and the watch scuffed against the wall. At first i noticed a couple of fine scratches. Those scratches turned into a cracked screen within a week. The cost for apple to repair was 229.99. I sold it on eBay for parts and will invest in a Garmin watch again next. I've had good luck with Garmin. Again - Apple has everyone beat in the smart watch world - lots of apps and very useful. It is just not well made and has terrible battery life compared to watches like the Garmin Vivoactive 3 or the Fitbit Ionic.

    I had a gen1 AppleWatch. it held up over time and actually improved with updates. This watch has a cleaner feel, the processor is stronger so apps and functions don't choke up or jitter. The water resistance feature is great. Wish it was more 'in your face' with the literature but it is not hard to figure out. "live" watch faces are cool. For still being a strong watch this is a solid deal on current pricing and specials. side note - price match and open box return policies are confusing. even to reps. doesn't seem well thought out for Elite Plus members.

    I opted for the 3rd Generation over the 4th because I didn't see enough difference between the two. I was still using my original Apple Watch, so anything newer was better. While I love the syncing and simplicity of pairing my watch with my phone, I wish the screen was slightly bigger. I had a Tic Watch for a while, and while it was a little chunky, it was easier to read. One thing I do love on the Apple Watch is the Walky Talky feature. It's great to bugging my husband! I also like the amount of accessories, like different watch bands you can purchase.

    I thought twice before move from Fitbit to this iWatch. However I think that I made a good decision. There is only couple of functions hat I still prefer more from Fitbit like the synchronization of the steps with the iWatch and the activity app at the iPhone that is not live. You have to wait for several minutes before you can see the amount of steps that you walked shows at the activity app. In addition another issue is that for person like me that have a wide wrist, the length of the band is not enough. even is not easy to find band replacement above 9.1". With Fitbit I don't have this issue.

    This is a nice Apple Watch. Everything works smoothly and faster than my 1st generation iWatch (Apple Watch). Battery last a little over two days for me. I don’t do a lot on it. Just mainly wear it to track my heart rate, fitness, play music, send and receive text messages etc. The only reason I gave it a 4 star is cause it’s lxking a built in camera. For the price they could have easily installed a camera. Other than that, seems to be the same as my 1st generation iWatch with an internal hardware upgrade. Do I recommend it? Well if it’s on sale , yes! But don’t pay full price for it.

    I have put off getting a watch thinking I really didn't need that expense and also I don't really like wearing a watch. So I took the plunge and after the first day I was totally changed in my opinion. I really like the watch and don't mind it on my wrist at all. I wear my phone on a belt clip and when in the car I can answer right on my watch without having to reach under the seat belt to remove it and answer. Awesome! Also, like the fact that I don't have to put in my password on my macbook pro - the watch opens automatically!!!

    Apple is known to create high quality products and the apple watch series 3 is one of them. I am still learning the features on this watch and what other capabilities it has. My only knock is the battery life. I was a longtime fitbit flex/alta user and it usually takes me a few days before i charge the unit. This watch takes about 1.5-2 days between charges, but i'm pretty sure there's a low power mode. I am also trying to find the right app to log my tennis workouts. I have yet to try the sports tracker app. So far i am happy with my purchase. If you are a hardcore apple product consumer, i would recommend this watch.

    I used to have a FitBit, and this thing kicks its butt. I love that I call still answer calls on just the WiFi version, keeps track of all my heavy workouts, and very easy to change songs when I’m running or needing ease of access. The great thing is that there are so many stylish options to choose from with cases and bands, it can be disguised as a “designer” watch at a wedding, and still function as a workout assistant at the gym. Don’t even take it off in the shower. One the best Apple purchases I’ve made.

    When these watches first came out i have to admit that i was not a fan. I saw no need to have a watch if i always had my phone on me. That changed when i saw someone with it and began asking questions. So my curiosity got the best of me and i purchased one for myself. This was the best investment i could buy myself. It’s super convenient to have the watch because when I’m at work i can’t have my phone on the floor. I still get all of my notifications and i can go to the back if i need to for my phone. I don’t see how i went so long without one but i wouldn’t go back to not having one EVER!!

    My son asked for a smart watch for Christmas. He is in Grad school in Athletic Training and has some functions that he wanted to use with a watch. He and I are the Apple platform side of the family and I already had an Apple Watch 1 so this was a no-brainer. I bought him what I would want and he couldn’t be happier. On New Year’s Eve he told me how the watch helped him navigate safely while driving. His safety is very important to me so I felt like it was the right present for him. I’m sure it will help him in many other ways too.

    I resisted the Apple Watch craze for quite awhile since the Series 3 is my first and this was a gift. However, I find myself using it all day for all type of functions. The most amazing is being able to see all the notifications without having to pull my phone out every single time it dings. The ability to respond to text messages via voice is pretty awesome and the voice to text software does a better job than the voice to text on the iPhone itself. Having upgraded from a FitBit I find the activity tracking abilities lacking compared to FitBit but the other features the Apple Watch has more than makes up for it.

    Bought these as an early Christmas present for my son. He loves it. Will be helpful with his athletic self. Football season in high school has ended and I'm just trying to get these extra points for the review. buy it if you want. the only thing I kind of was upset is that I had purchased the same series watch and it came with the wall adapter but these didn't. So either you have a usb outlet or and extra wall plug block then you are forced to get something to charge these suckers. It does come with the usb cord to charge the watch but not the block.

    I never thought I’d buy an Apple watch but it was on sale and I figured it would inspire me to be more active and get in shape. Not only is it great for fitness but it notifies me of texts and emails and incoming calls, i use it to scan my movie tickets, buy gas, check weather, and check my account balances. Didn’t think I would care about such things but I honestly like not having to do everything thing on my phone. I just bring my watch up and check things. My only gripes are the somewhat stale design and price. But other watches and fitness trackers cost almost the same so...

    I’ve bought 3 apple watches for love ones and they were so happy. The first one was dropped and broken so I go her another one which was my second purchase and she was super happy. She felt bad for the broken watch but there’s nothing I would not do for my daughter! The third watch watch was for my girlfriend and she was more excited than both watches I bought for my daughter. Making them happy is my job!!!!

    Never saw the reason to have an iWatch, but after review of the product and the BB sale during Mother's Day sales this year at $50 less than the asking price, I went for it and glad I did. This is an amazing product that compliments not only your iPhone, but health, fitness, etc. You easily can monitor your fitness activity, heart rate, answer telephone calls (like a "Dick Tracy" watch setup), respond to texts, etc. without having your iPhone right near you. And you only need to purchase the GPS version, you don't need the cellular one. This is just one awesome purchase I'm glad I now have.

    Bought this for myself as I now travel for work and needed something to track basic fitness things such as steps, heartbeat, and exercise. Fitbit would have been a better fit for activity trackers but the Apple Watch has come a long way in the fitness tracker field in generations 3 and 4. This model is great and serves as a fitness tracker great as well as doing the whole smartwatch part which I'm still figuring out what is worth using for me and what is just a cool feature but not particularly practical. Overall highly recommended.

    I liked the idea of having something easy to use to access my phone, and missed having a watch for the time. Best of both worlds. Very nice quality. Easy to use. Phone conversations are clear, texting is a little on the tricky side but super convenient, and accessing apps like weather quickly is really handy. Battery lasts a couple days however I don’t use it a ton for much other than time, weather, and sending and receiving some texts throughout the day. It’s held up well to some bumps and bangs. Would definitely recommend.

    I received this as a gift and am not too tech savvy. My biggest complaint is that the minute you take off the watch for even a second you get a message that the watch is locked and you have to turn on your iphone to unlock it. However, at times, it has taken forever for mine to unlock, even when the phone is on. I might not know how to do it quickly but that is annoying since it won't even tell you the time if its locked. I guess if you have the time to learn all the quirks its okay but it's bulky in size bc I have a small wrist and when I put a coat through it always catches the watch. Not sure if its worth the money.

    I was on the fence about the Apple Watch after reading about it. It sounded nice, but overpriced. Well, I was wrong; I LOVE the Apple Watch! Jonny Ive strikes again — the design of this product is simply amazing! So much thought went into not just the design of the physical product (the included band is the most comfortable watch band I’ve ever owned), but the software and user interface design. It is a pure joy to use. I can now answer my own question - “Why would anyone pay $100 more for Apple’s watch?” If you have an old iPod and your 3rd iPhone but never bought a Zune, you’ll understand.
