    I was really excited to get the Apple Watch but I feel it is overpriced for what it offers. A smaller version of your phone that doesn't do nearly as much. Fitness gurus will love the Activity app capabilities and it's nice to walk away from your phone and be able to see incoming emails and texts. There are very few apps that work with the watch as most just ask you to go to your iPhone. The cellular function does not work out of the box, need to set it up with your wireless provider for another additional cost. Maybe I am just not use to it yet or have fully learned its capabilities but for the price Apple charges I don't feel it's worth it.

    Has potential but..

    Had it for four days then returned it because: Most apps (such as news apps and Instagram) do not even utilize LTE to connect to the internet in order to refresh data. You have to still be around WiFi or iPhone. The news apps I did use (cnn, native news app, usa today) only show you a short headline and then maybe 3-4 sentences of article text. That's all you get and only 5-6 stories at a time. Battery died in 6 hours without making any calls and having only moderate usage. 5 calls dropped in areas my cell never experiences call drops. E-mails and texts were hit or miss on LTE (some would not come through)

    After FitBit finally bit the dust, figured this would be a great replacement. Wasn’t aware that it would require a SEPARATE line access fee from the cell carrier to actually USE the cell capability. Also most apps (MapMyRun, Pandora, etc) cannot function separately from the paired iPhone. Wasn’t that the whole point of the cell addition?? Lastly, paired beautiful Bose headphones with it to find it sounded like an AM radio from a tin can...ZERO EQ capability compared to listening to music from an iPhone. For a “power user”, beware of these shortcomings.

    The concept is great, but let's be honest, the keynote made this sound way more beneficial than it really is. "With no need for another number" is far different than having to buy an access line for $10 a month and merging two numbers into one. The concept should be tethered to the same number under your contract, but that is just me. Plus, who really ever moves without their phone? Save yourself the money and buy the 3 without cellular.

    Having previously had a Gear watch I expected more of this new Apple Watch. It promised streaming music without being synced to your phone, I have yet to see it. All the other apps are meh. Wondering if they are holding out on some functionality for when the X launches. Phone calls work great but you feel like a tool talking to your watch. LOL. Perhaps I just don’t know the “good” apps to use?

    Nice Watch But Few Issues

    I kinda wish I didn’t waste my time and money on the watch. Features are nice and the water feature is cool but I don’t like how often Siri stops working and how often my text messages are not sending. It’s a headache to not have my names on my number when I’m texting or calling. I’m really disappointed. Don’t even want the watch anymore...

    The watch itself has great features. However, it is not durable at all. I am glad I bought Apple Care because I had to use it within the first 2 weeks of wearing the watch. I bumped my wrist and the screen cracked. I definitely recommend the Apple Care along with the screen protector and bumper case if you are going to buy the watch.

    This watch is an asset for anyone who exercises outdoors and doesn't want to carry their phone with them. I like the fact that in case of emergency, I can call someone without having my phone on me. The only drawback is that I can't stream music unless I have a subscription to Apple Music...can't use 3rd party Apps.

    Weak Screen - Otherwise Okay

    Returned twice for broken screens. Third time is a charm. Having the separate cellular is key. Some apps freeze, particular pain has been the activity app freezing and having to constantly wipe the data and reboot the watch. Even with these issues, i don't leave home without it.

    I can’t use my watch without my phone because of not having a single. They don’t tell you all this stuff in the store. Hate that I pay the monthly charge and it not work. The only reason I wouldn’t recommend it is because of the signal failure.

    I love the Apple Watch the only thing is I don’t feel the cellular part is needed. It works sometimes and others u don’t know if it’s working just because of the Bluetooth. I would recommend the watch with out the cellular service because it’s not with it

    I’ve had a Fitbit for about 2 years. I decided to try apple but I’m not convinced I should spend hundreds of dollars more for it when it doesn’t do much more than my blaze:

    I bought this as a graduation gift for my daughter. However I haven’t seen her wear it. When I asked her about it, she said that the charge of her battery does not hold.

    Works perfect with cell close to watch, but reception it is not good having cell far or off, this model is a cell also but sometimes doesn’t work like that, poor reception, having T-Mobile like a service provider.

    Took a long time to get the watch setup. Then it didn’t work and had to repair several times to get working. Watch itself is very good. Easy to use and works great.

    Very cool at first but I couldn’t justify keeping it past the return date. The watch is very fragile and I was always too worried about cracking the bridle screen. Keep in mind this in only an opinion. Good luck.

    The texting could be better. And the calling is slow ir it says not connected. The charging is quick but it drains when your utilizing the health app or making a call

    Love the watch great for people on the go. Only complaint is the cellular strength is not as good as Phone. If in a poor signal area cellular on watch will not work.

    This watch was sold to me supposedly unlocked. My carrier said it cannot be activated because it needs a SIM card! I wasted money!!
