    Was debating for a long time and finally caved in

    Previous to buying an Apple Watch I had a FitBit Charge 2, my Fitbit was practical for tracking my movements. I owned that Fitbit for 2 years and then the straps no longer clipped to the watch properly so I was in between buying new straps which would’ve been cheaper OR splurging and getting the Apple Watch. I convinced myself to buy the Apple Watch Series 4 44mm to treat myself for how hard I’ve been working. I also decided to treat my unconvinced boyfriend, he was so stuck on the idea that the watch was a bad investment and that he couldn’t see himself putting it to good use. He walked out of Best Buy with the biggest smile on his face and when we went out to eat that evening he couldn’t stop messing around with his new watch. We both find the watch convenient for so many reasons. Basically this is a product that you don’t think you need until you have it. Color wise, I wished Apple made the stainless steel version without GPS, I decided to buy both watches without GPS because it’s rare when we don’t have our phones near. I had originally bought the Rose Gold but swapped it out for the Silver because it looked more sleek and not too girly.

    Love it, but I want more customization.

    I bought this watch a little after it came out and I have been very happy with it so far. I have a handful of Apple products, including a MacBook Air that was provided from my work, so this fits right in with the Apple ecosphere. Being able to glance at notifications on your wrist, answer your phone, make purchases, respond to text messages, and unlock your laptop, without pulling your phone or wallet out of your pocket, is very convenient. Is all of this worth about $400? That depends on who you are. I am kind of a tech nerd so I love all of the new and latest gadgets that come out, and this is where I treat myself. One of the reasons I gave this four out of five stars is because of lack of customization options. Apple is known for this anyway so it’s not really something new to people that use Apple products. I still really like it and get a lot of use from it everyday. If you’re an Android user, obviously this is not for you as you will not get to use any of it’s features, but you wouldn’t dare buy Apple stuff anyway, so you should be good.

    Apple didn't become the most valuable company by making mediocre product and apple does have put lot of thoughts and effort in making the new apple watch series 4. The features are amazing including the new ECG heart monitor and fall detection. It lives up to the hype and creates a easy user friendly interface between your phone and the watch. I would prefer they launch a version in round as well as in square so, it won't look little weird in my hand. Every major competitor who makes a smart watch has a round watch...Samsung, Movado, Tag Heuer, Fossil to name a few. It will be nice to see a round apple watch in next version. One little thing is, I am left handed person and I have a habit of wearing the watch in left hand as well. So, it kind of awkward using the watch with my right hand but its totally my thing nothing against apple. Good product, if you like to maintain an active a busy life style. My Rating : Technology: 9/10 Design/style: 4/10 Quality: 8/10 Interface between Phone & Watch: 10/10 Overall: 8/10

    Great device, finally with the power I wanted

    The series 4 Apple Watch finally has all the power and enough battery for me. On a full charge it lasts 2 days. In reality I charge it for 20-30 minutes every day while I’m in the shower and that’s more than enough to get through the day and then some. The stand notification is really nice, making sure I don’t sit still too long. The step accuracy seems to be on par with a Fitbit, if not more accurate. The heart rate monitor could be more constant like a Fitbit, but I knew what I was getting. The improved notifications over a Fitbit are awesome, being able to see emoji, and being able to reply from the watch. I know some knock Siri but I have had very good experiences with Siri dictating from the watch, seemingly more accurate than from the phone (though that could also be due to the microphone being closer to my mouth. The ECG functionality was recently released and is pretty cool, though Ive not had any afib in the past so it’s not like I’m expecting any. The readings look fine, but I don’t have anything to compare it against other than other devices and tracking my heart rate.

    Nothing too exciting. Apple store services-poor

    There is NO major differences between the 3 series and 4 series. Too much hype. The only disappointment with the watch (or any Apple product), if there is an issue, you can't bring it back to Best Buy to look at it or fix it. They direct you to go to one of the Apple stores. Such a headache! If you go to the store, you need to schedule an appointment with one of the Apple representatives (confusing considering there is no desk or direction until I asked an employee to help), then had to wait a minimum of 2 hours or schedule a day and time to come in. No wonder the Apple store always seems busy! Majority of the costumers are the ones with issues with their Apple product. All Best Buy locations should have at least one Apple specialist to help with this instead of going to the limited Apple Stores that you have to wait a long time before being seen or schedule an appointment for something that took less then 15 minutes. For this reason alone, I'm turning away from Apple products.

    I waited what seemed like a while to finally take the plunge and invest In this watch. It is concerning to spend so much on a watch. But, overall, I’m glad I did. I’m not going to blow and rainbows and unicorns out there, but I will absolutely say that it is worth the money. One thing that you May be asking yourself is should get the cellular version. I wrestled with that myself and I deferred to the thought that I always have my phone so why waste the hundred bucks and the ten dollars a month in my cell plan. Well I’m here to tell you that after you start using your watch that statement becomes less important. For example, as I used my watch more and more, I found that there were times I didn’t need my phone. So if I could do it over, I would have just got the Cellular version. But that’s only my opinion. Hope this helps someone.

    Marginal upgrade from Apple Watch 3

    This is Apple’s best watch yet, but only a marginal upgrade from Watch 3, so if you already have that watch, I would say wait until Apple does something more significant. The extra screen real estate is nice, but Apple’s new Infograph Watch faces that actually take advantage of the extra space amazingly omit the ability to set some of the most used functions like your text messages and email. But don’t worry, you CAN set it to show the UV index lol. Again, this is a great watch but the real star is Watch OS 5, which all previous watches can run. Having just moved from Watch 3 to 4, I think the software runs great on both but is noticeably zippier on Watch 4, but not so much faster that it warrants the upgrade. Also, unrelated to hardware, the new Walkie Talkie feature is cool when it works but my god is it shockingly buggy. Feels like testing something in beta.

    As advertised the Apple series 4 watch works best with Apple phones. It successfully recorded my activity, gave periodic reminders to stand or breath and transmitted the activity data to an apple iphone 8. Since I am over 65, falls are automatically turned on and I experienced three, all false over the course of the first week. Each time I was asked by both the watch and phone if I needed assistance and answering 'no' ended the situation. On one occasion I wasn't fast enough and the City emergency squad was called although fortunately I was was able to stop them from sending an ambulance. This situation can be solved by being careful when taking off the watch and avoiding dropping it or by turning the falls app off. It is not turned on if under 65. Overall I was very pleased with the watch.

    I had a Series 1 for a time when it released. Returned it because it wasn’t really meeting all the hype. I am a watch guy, so I was not much enthused with the aesthetics. After trying several known, and unknown, smart watch / fitness tracker types, and not finding them satisfactory; I decided to try the Series 4 44mm. To my surprise, this redesign really makes a difference. It feels significant, and looks nice on. It doesn’t look so much like an “accessory”, but rather a smart looking timepiece. All the bells and whistles are a bonus. Battery life is much improved. Now it’s time to start shopping for some real accessories.

    Can’t get enough of this technology. It’s literally a computer on your watch. Of course this thing is in a bulletproof case on my wrist. (As all mobile apple products should be.) I enjoy the workout app that tracks my luncheon walks and the gps that tells me where I might have gone that day. The heart rate is comparable to the Fitbit surge that I’ve been wearing for almost half a decade. I’m a little sketchy about the short battery life. I am required to charge it every 1.5 days, while the Fitbit surge required every 5 days. Other than that, it’s a fantastic product for half a grand of money.

    Apple Watch series 4

    Very similar to the series 2 in my opinion. The app has not came out yet to be able to do the ECG’s. So I am unable to review this function yet. I don’t see much difference between my series 2 and this new series 4 but I haven’t spent a lot of time with it yet. I have been having some issues with it turning off and not wanting to come back on. Hopefully all the kinks will be worked out soon and up and running with the ECG so I can test it out. I’m a nurse so the ECG capability was the function that sold me but I haven’t been able to try yet. I would recommend getting the Apple protection, like I did, just in case the turning off issue doesn’t get fixed with an update.

    Series 4 is a worthy upgrade!

    I started my wearable journey with the original Apple Watch. I tend to be an early adopter and wanted the latest tech Apple offered. Over that year I had some concerns, but overall I was pretty happy with it. Then Series 2 came out and I upgraded to the Nike+ version and continued to experience the same concerns. I skipped Series 3 because I felt it was more of the same and I wanted to see what Series 4 would bring. I couldn't have been more happy about my decision. This watch resolves all my concerns from the speaker, screen size, usability etc. If this is your first wearable you will be blown away and if it is an upgrade you will be very pleased with it. Enjoy!

    Ultimate Smart Watch

    This is my 3rd Apple Watch and 6th smart watch overall. The upgrade from the Watch 2 to the Watch 4 was awesome. The larger display and improved battery life are fantastic. I am a distance runner and my Watch 2 would be less than 10% by 5pm on running days. With the Watch 4, I can go 36 hours before hitting 10%. The heartrate monitor matches wireless BT monitors nearly perfectly and the Siri integration is so convenient. All of my old bands fit perfectly, which saved me a few hundred bucks. Only request would be the ability to create Infograph faces in monochrome or custom colors.

    Picked this one up for my wife. She doesn’t typically wear watches, so I went for the aluminum model. She enjoys the fitness tracking functions and we’ve both found the reminders to be motivational and not annoying. I deducted a star because the ion-x glass(or whatever Apple is calling it) is NOT very durable. She cracked the screen within the first week of ownership. I chalked this up to inexperience wearing a watch, and/or possibly a fluke. Fortunately we had AppleCare and screen replacement (for a small fee) is an option if needed.

    I purchased the gift for a parent (over 70 y.o.), mostly for the heart beat tracking, ECG, fall detector and other health benefits that this version supports. Watch interface and usage is a little too complicated still for this demographic. Wearer wanted to return it after one week. I had to setup and shut down many of the options after wearer reporting that it was too obtrusive with notifications and such. Now it is better. Other than that, it is an attractive watch and good gift for parent who owns other Apple products.

    I am a watch lover and have been watching the Apple Watch for a few years waiting for it to get better and it did so I bought it!! I have been happy with the Apple 4 and most of the features, the only negative is it does not accommodate all my favorite apps and it limits what I can do on it. Nevertheless, I love it and have not taken it off except for showering. I even bought different bands to match my clothing and love how easy it is to change bands. I’d buy it again and again and give it 4 stars only because it’s not as interactive as I had hoped.

    I've always thought the 'smart' watches were silly and still do. I was attending a conference where it wasn't appropriate to check my phone but I was waiting for a couple important messages and needed calendar reminders to keep me on track. The watch served it's purpose but honestly, I just use my fitbit Charge for day to day tasks. The battery life on the Apple watch is less than 2 days and it doesn't have a good sleep tracker so it's just not practical in my eyes compared to what I've become accustom to. That's just my two cents.

    First let me get this out of the way, the watch is fast!!! The screen is big and the body is slim. All great things and for those things I will keep the watch. But.... It seems that due to the bezelless design the OLED screen is prone to visible edge defects. I had to return my first Series 4 because of this. The screen edge opposite of the crown had a glow that was glaringly noticeable on notifications and any type of list view. The replacement ended up having the same issue, just not as bad. So I am going to keep it. Aside from that, it’s definitely a great watch.

    I tried an Apple Watch a few years ago and felt it wasn’t a good fit. With the series 4, I feel that they have improved a lot for me. Sometimes it can be too much stimuli to have virtually everything on your iPhone sitting on your wrist, but I toned down the watch apps and thoroughly enjoy it. It is also priceless with helping me calculate my calories and exercise. My only complaint is that there isn’t an intrinsic monitor for sleep like with the Fitbit. However, you can download 3rd party apps for this

    Since I’ve only had this watch for about a month I’m sure I have not tapped in to all of its capabilities, I like the various choices offered for the various faces . I also like the heart monitor as well as the various exercise offerings . I would like to see the battery life enhanced , as well as a deeper dive into the individual stocks which is offered on one of the faces . I look forward to the various iOS updates for the series four watch .
