    The Apple Watch Series 3, in its radiant gold hue and 38mm size, is a testament to both style and functionality. This timepiece seamlessly blends into my daily routine, offering a perfect balance of design and features. The gold aluminum finish exudes sophistication, making it a versatile accessory for any occasion. The 38mm size strikes a harmonious balance between a sleek profile and a display that remains comfortably readable. It effortlessly complements both casual and more formal outfits, adding a touch of elegance to my wrist. In terms of functionality, the Series 3 remains a reliable companion. The crisp OLED Retina display ensures clear visibility of notifications, fitness metrics, and watch faces. While it may not boast the latest features of newer models, it excels in the essentials – tracking daily activities, heart rate monitoring, and delivering timely alerts. The watchOS ecosystem provides a seamless experience, allowing easy customization of watch faces and quick access to essential apps. The water-resistant design ensures peace of mind during workouts or unexpected rain showers. The battery life is commendable, easily lasting a full day on a single charge. Whether tracking workouts, receiving notifications, or simply checking the time, the Series 3 keeps up with my daily demands without missing a beat. While it may lack some advanced features of newer Apple Watch models, the Series 3 remains a reliable and stylish companion. Its timeless design, coupled with Apple's attention to detail, makes it a valuable addition to my daily ensemble, proving that sometimes, classic simplicity is the key to enduring elegance.

    Good little watch

    Good little watch for the money. The memory was limited but overall a good fit. I bought this for my wife so she could do the Apple fitness workouts, but she lost interest in it after about 3 weeks. So, it has been my teenage daughter's watch now. My daughter loves it. The smaller size is just right for her.

    I purchased an open box watch which I thought I would never do but so far, I haven't had any problems with the open box and even though it wasn't a huge savings, it was enough to cause me to get the 3 series instead of the 2. I bought this watch to replace a broken fitbit and I am so glad I did because it so perfectly pairs with my mac air, iphone 7 and ipad I own. I was surprised by friends that say they don't use many of the features on the watch because I am 60 (supposedly older people don't understand tech stuff) and I use so many features on this watch. I recommend you go online, download the instruction manual (over 300 pages) use the table of contents to skim what you don't think you'll need and read the parts you might use. In addition to all of the sport tracking features I love the little things, I can ping my phone (which I am always losing), it automatically opens my mac air, I can silent my phone without taking it out of my purse, I can see who is calling me and send a short response without taking my phone out of my purse, I can set up my clock face to my specifications so that I can see the time without my reading glasses or know what time it is in Dublin where my son lives. I can quickly make it waterproof before I wash dishes or bath the dog and if I want I can wear it when I swim laps at the YMCA but I haven't tried that yet. I guess you can tell I love this watch.

    I don't need the latest and greatest, or the EKG, or even the fall detection. What I really needed was a watch, that could work with my phone, fit my wrist, give me directions and work with my laptop. It's perfect. It works. I can't use my phone of the sales floor, but I CAN phone through the watch, help my customers, answer the business phone and send texts through the watch, all without missing a beat. I cannot tell you how fascinated my customers are, and how many questions I get about the Series 3 AND the Series 4 I bought for my 87 year old and she loves it. I also cannot tell you how many times I will see a customer, having explained how I use my watch, who has gone to Best Buy or Apple and bought their own, and have come back to thank me and share how they use their watch! BTW I drive horses Combined Driving. The watch is very good for keeping me on pace AND on course :D

    Gold replaced Rose Gold for Series 3. Great change

    Apple discontinued "Rose Gold" for Series 3 watches. But they changed the "Gold" color from the Series 2. My wife and I both like the new Series 3 Gold. It's somewhere between Gold and Rose Gold. And the wristband is a better Pink. The actual watch is, of course, awesome! She got the one without Cellular (with Cellular you will have to pay $10/mo to your cell phone provider for the watch). You will get all the same features on the regular Series 3 watch that the Cellular one has. The only difference is that Cellular will let you leave your phone at home or in the car and you will still be able to receive calls and texts on your watch. But most people don't need that.

    I bought the series 3 on sale because I wasn’t sure if I would like or use. After a slight learning curve, I love my watch. I bought the blue tooth only version. No cell. It allows me to leave my phone and sit on patio or work in garden and not miss a call or text. It will reach as far as your WiFi system will. We went out on jet ski and as soon as we arrived back near dock my messages started coming through. The voice messaging has been exactly correct and did not print things I did not say. Very accurate. Also, have it water resistant to 50 meters makes it easy to wear around the pool, lake, boat.

    I love this watch. I switched from a Fitbit to a Samsung active watch (to go with my Google Pixel) and was so disappointed had to get two of them and neither of them worked appropriately and he battery life was awful and died within a days use. This watch on the other hand, is sleek, fully functional with my iPhone, and has amazing fitness tracking. I hardly take it off if I can avoid it!

    Bought for my wife's birthday. She love's having a smart watch but is highly allergic to the nickel in the watches. This was our 3rd and final try. I ordered the Series 3 with the bumper. ZERO reaction to the watch and she absolutely loves the functionality! Integrates with all of her apple gear perfectly.

    I was hesitant to buy an Apple Watch since I already have a phone and thought I would not get much use out of it. It’s been the total opposite! I love it, I can walk away from my phone and not worry about missing an important phone call or message!! I’m looking forward to cutting the grass this summer and wearing my watch with air pods listening to music while I mow.

    I got this as a birthday present and I LOVEE it! I am able to track my activity throughout the day, how many calories I’ve burned in a workout and even text through it when I am too lazy to pick up my phone. Everything about it is amazing except for the casing color. On the photographs the casing looked gold but in person, it looked more of a rose gold color. I was disappointed on that part because I really wanted a bright gold to match with the different bands. The color won’t stop me from wearing it everyday however!
