    I'm really loving my Apple watch. I work in a high paced, sometimes loud environment, this lets me prioritize my calls and messages without having to reach out for my iPhone. The activity monitoring is also top notch.

    Overall not bad. However, the connection between the phone and watch is not always great. At times my watch does not pick up messages and calls first. The speaker could also be a little louder.

    I bought the series 3 based on reviews that the battery lasts longer. I haven't had the chance to test how long it will last without charging yet, I will soon. I was debating on the 38mm or 42mm. So I went to my carriers store to test out on my wrist for size and glad I did. The 42mm was too big for my skinny wrist, I'm happy with the 38mm. Ever since I bought this watch I haven't missed any calls or messages. The haptic vibration/sound lets me know (notifications). I have mine silenced and so I feel vibrations on my wrist and not loud to for others to hear. The silicon wrist band is comfortable and soft. The first thing I bought with this watch is a screen and case protector. Gotta protect this expensive watch : @@@@@@@

    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. ?
