    This is my second time buying an opened boxed watch my first watch was also opened box, and I kept it for over 5 years, I would have still had it if I didn’t shatter it on a hike, clumsy me, I decided to go with another opened box watch and I am NOT disappointed, it feels brand new, it looks brand new, and have been working perfectly fine. It was an upgrade from what I had and I am not disappointed!

    Delivery was extremely quick and I received the watch 3 days later. While the watch did not come in a box (just bubble wrapping) the watch itself was in excellent condition. No scratches or markings, it really looks brand new. The battery health is at 89% so it does seem to drain faster than normal but I don’t see this an issue as I can still go a full work day with it.

    I’ve had my watch for 1 day and I’m really happy. It came and it looks almost brand new! Battery health at 85% but have had it off the charger for like 21 hours and the battery percentage is still at 68%.I was skeptical of buying a refurbished watch but getting this has set my mind at ease. Thx Best Buy!

    I am used to FItbit. I have had. four fitbit watches over the years but when it came time to updgrade I wanted to try the apple watch. Everything else I have is Apple so I decided to switch.. For the price, I will learn to like it or tell myself I do...But I regret that it took me past Best Buys insanely short 14 days return window to realize I wanted to return it...I had a hard time with the fitness part of the watch when I first started using it as the fitness time would always stop, but once I got through that hurdle. THe watch battery goes fast so I have to charge it daily, but that issue could be user related. Overall I am giving it four stars because the watch deserves fours for design, apps and all the other features. I would give it one star based on my personal preference with Fitbit is 100x better for fitness.. I love that Fitbit automatically tracks your steps, this watch does not do this. You have to set the app and then download another app and a whole process...You can do almost everything else with this watch but the one small and simple feature of tracking steps automatically and displaying it on the screen is a Fail. So If you use the watch primarily for fitness, I wouldn't suggest using it. As I said BB has an insanely short return period. The one major downside when buying from Best Buy. God forbid you have to buy a birthday gift because unless you buy the product one day before giving it to the recipient, those 15 day clock starts. I feel 30 days is better but my review isn't for BB.. So By the time I figured out I wasn't thrilled with it, it was to late to return..The watch isn't bad but I don't think it compares to FITbit for fitness. IF I had to do it all over again, I would have gone with a fourth fitbit watch and not this...Once this watch breaks/dies/no longer works I will most likely go back go Fitbit, unless there is an apple watch that has the step option like fitibit.

    I love it! Honestly I was not sure how much i would use the watch but i use it more then my phone. I love how intergraded it is with all my other apple products (home pod, iphone14, and ipad air) the only down side would be that I didn't get the cellular option and the availability of apps. Which I dont think is this watches fault.

    That hoe did not impress, first of all the packaging was mediocre. I mean I didn’t expect it to come with original box but the packaging was depressing. Then, mine arrived without the bands. So I’m there like, what am I supposed to do with no bands. I tried settling it up with my phone but update time was so long that Apple Watch couldn’t take it and it never updated. Anyways that probably was my luck. Could be different with you.

    The watch came significantly scratched. I understand it was refurbished but you can get much better quality at a much better rate in so many more places. When I went to return it, they told me I couldn’t do so because “my window to return was 14 days from the day they shipped it” when I went online, I read that it was able to be returned 14 days from receipt. I went to the online helpdesk and they told me I couldn’t return it at all. I read them the return policy and the date that my receipt stated and after some back and forth I was finally able to return it. After about a month I received my refund.
