    Love the Apple 42mm watch!

    Love it! I wasn’t sure about getting the 42mm screen instead of the 44mm screen but the 42 is perfect! I can see everything just fine and I’m glad I saved the money instead of purchasing the bigger one because I don’t think they are that much different. I honestly don’t use the watch for that much but it’s nice to take phone calls on it if my hands are full, I like that I can text and reply to text messages, and I’ve never wore a watch before so it is nice to have the time and weather right there on my wrist. You can see your heart rate and the Apple fitness is kind of neat. I bought a bunch of different bands and bumpers so I can change up the colors. It’s something that you may not really need, it’s it’s like a fun new toy to have and I’m so glad I got it!

    The watch wouldn't charge or turn on. Mother's Day gift bust. Obviously I have no idea what was originally wrong with it. But you'd think one of the quality control checks in refurbishing a watch would be ensuring it fully charges and turns on. I bought a Samsung refurbished previously and it's working fine.
