    This device works great, and I’ve always enjoyed the ability to track my fitness and receive notifications. However, I do feel it’s overpriced for the simple features that it provides.

    Fits my needs perfectly watch face size is perfect not too overbearing or too small battery life is amazeballs. Price is great for what I received and what I needed can’t complain. Ended up purchasing another for my husband and now going to be purchasing a third for my daughter that’s graduating.

    An Investment That is Worthwhile

    Let me start off by saying my wife had to convince me to buy one because of the price. All I wanted was a luminox divers watch. I caved and bought it and also bought the catalyst watch case for it since I tend to be rough on watches and I spend a lot of time doing hands on type work and water activities like fishing. Needless to say the watch has really grown on me. I can answer calls on it, control Pandora from it, turn off my alarm (which is priceless, lol), set timers, track workouts, ensure I’m not lazy by beating my goals each day via the movement rings for exercise, movement, calories and standing. And on and on. Battery life is awesome. Mine will last about two days. I can tell time in the dark. The weather is right on my wrist. Etc. If you’re on the fence or you’re saying “but that’s a lot of money, you’re right. It isn’t cheap, exactly, it isn’t cheap. It’s a pretty awesome little computer that does a multitude of super handy functions right there on your wrist. I’m picky what I spend my money on and for me it’s been worth it.

    Can’t think of anything negative to say. I had to get leather wrist bands that would contour my skinny wrists better. To change the bands you just push a button on the back while sliding it out. I also advise you buy some sort of protective cover. I didn’t realize how often I hit things with my wrist. You can’t listen to music on it but you can control the music that is played on your phone or wireless earphones, from it. As long as you have your phone nearby, you can receive calls and text or make them. I don’t know how far you can be before it loses connection. I’ve been at one end of my house (a two story) and my phone at the other end of the house and was able receive phone calls! It’s not heavy to wear.

    Wonderful product! Bought one for myself and one for my wife. We love everything about them! The fitness app, heart rate monitor and the step counter are fantastic for helping us get/stay in shape. They sync with your iPhone if you select that option. They have speakers and walkie talkie functions. Alarms, access to most of your apps, haptic feedback for notifications, events, reminders, messages, etc. Chock full of features. Not the largest Apple Watch but not the smallest either. FYI this model is not cellular capable.

    I’m so happy I bought my Apple Watch 3. I did my research and found out the there isn’t too much difference from the Series 5 so I got the Series 3. I’ve had other smart watches but nothing can beat Apple. One thing that I think is great is that the watch runs so smoothly. It’s lightweight and water resistant which is awesome. I really don’t have any complaints

    I really love my iWatch. It’s the perfect size for me since I like larger watches. It’s very convenient and I am able to access a lot of apps, my heart rate, my breathing, tracking workouts. I am able to use Apple Pay, camera remote, Walkie talkie with my Apple Watch friends. Ping to locate my phone or use phone to ping watch. It’s definitely a great buy! I also purchased one for my daughter and several wrist bands to make it more versatile.

    Here’s the thing, I am not one to buy high priced items often. I’m pretty cheap until I do enough research to be pretty confident that it’s worth the money. I watched review after review, some for and some against, before making the decision to buy the Apple Watch. Now that I have it, I can honestly say it is well worth the money! It does everything perfectly, looks amazing, and it syncs up perfectly with my iPhone and Apple TV! I’m not a runner, not really into working out as a whole- I do it only because I have to- so I was a little concerned getting it as all you really read, watch, or hear is all about the fitness capabilities of this device. It does have a great many things to help in that area, but that’s not all. It’s an awesome thing to be able to scan my email, iMessages, or even take a phone call, without pulling out my iPhone. So if you’re not a fitness buff, don’t fret. This is an awesome device for just about anybody.

    Being able to monitor my H/R and activities is really great. The battery is great. I can go a couple of days on one charge, 3 days a few times. It’s all about the use folks. If it’s used like your cell, then the hours are cut short. I use it to check my mail or text. Other thank that, not much else.

    I was using Android Wear before and now switched to the Apple Watch with my new iPhone X. I am very pleased with the watch. The build is solid and Apple has nailed it with the Apple Watch OS 4.1 update. With all notifications, I get solid 2 days of battery life. I get more on the weekend when I have fewer notifications to deal with. If you already have an iPhone and thinking to jump on the smartwatch bandwagon, then Apple Watch is a great choice! You will not regret it!

    I like this Watch better than my Apple Watch Series 1 because it really stays charged. I forget to change my watch over night and it still be charged up to 75%. This is my 3rd Apple Watch and I have no regrets.

    I had an original Apple Watch. The upgrades are better. I’m sure a 4 or a 5 would be better. I love how easy it is to use. From tracking my workouts to adjusting the music to using Apple pay. I would recommend this to anyone.

    I was very pleased with my purchase! Best Buy offered the best price of any competitor, even Facebook marketplace, and even during the coronavirus pandemic they delivered over the top customer service by delivering the item to my truck in the parking lot. Exceptional service and products every time!

    I bought this 2 years ago and my biggest concern was if it would last. So far it’s been great, I did buy a 3rd party case to protect it after I scratched a corner. I use it for walks and working out and it’s great for getting texts to my watch. The only thing I hate is having to charge it so often. I love tracking my sleep so if you do the same get used to seeing “Low Power” messages almost every day. Otherwise it’s worth it and I wasn’t spending more than $250 for a watch.

    I was worried that I wouldn’t use all the functions of this watch, and boy was I wrong. I use it a lot. I check texts. I answer calls on it when I’m driving. I read news. I use the fitness function, weather - basically I love this watch. I found glitter bands for it so it’s really fashionable. The bands are very easy to change. I also got a face protector. I think that is important to protect the face. I really like the different animated face backgrounds. When I tilt it, my butterflies move. Sparks joy!

    I love my new watch. I’ve had it for almost a month now. It’s still in great condition and the watch also has cool features. It’s water resistant, it lets you know when you need to stand, breathe, or if your heart rate is up more than usual. It’s great for people that exercise and have health issues. I get to text and call people that has an iPhone or an android. I highly recommend.

    I am in love with my Apple Watch. My coworkers bought them too because they could see how easy and comfortable to use it. You don’t have to carry your phone with you because everything you need is. In your watch. I love everything about it. You can but watch bands different colors for different occasions and also protection screens.
