About This Product
Why do people love their Apple Watches? It’s just a watch, for Pete’s sake! But if you have one you know right away. There’s a small miracle that happens in a busy life when you can answer your phone (er, watch?) with your hands full. Or just glancing down to see the text message you just got. Or even completing those freaking rings (don’t know? of you will). There’s very little bad I can say after having my Series 2 for the last couple of years. I’m happy to get the 3 to have the always-on feature of cellular. I can leave the house and it’s not even a problem if I left my phone. Or go for a walk without having a heavy phone in my pocket. It’s not even about style, there’s just huge practicality of having a small device attached to your wrist that makes so many problems go away. Here are the positives:
• Excellent watch. Like, like a watch.
• Receive calls. Make calls.
• Receive text messages. Facebook, Twitter, IG, and more.
• Interchangeable bands. Fit the look you want, change on a dime.
• Alarms, notes, and all the other little apps.
• Fitness tracking
Really, I don’t have any cons. I know people think a smartphone in your back pocket is the top, but this just changes the game. I don’t know a single person who ever got an Apple Watch and didn’t like it. And the funny thing is you’ll never know unless you get one – Because how it changes what you do is the thing that makes it amazing. It’s all those small little ways that make for a stupidly brilliant product.
Seriously, you, your wife, your boyfriend – It makes a perfect gift.
I don’t need to say anything more about how fantastic this watch is. I was a Garmin forerunner holdout for years and finally switched as I wanted a watch to listen to music while running. The only negative thing I can say about this watch is battery life but I knew that before purchasing it. My solution was using the watch in nightstand mode at night and it’s always charged for a full day of activity. Please note by doing this u can’t use the watch to track sleep but that’s not an issue as I have never had a need to track sleep. I get about 3.5 miles of running in a day and with GPS, heart rate and music playback on and I still have not dipped below 30 percent battery life by the time I take it off to charge at night. The only thing I miss about the Garmin ecosystem is the ability to track mileage on my gear/shoes.
The reason I am writing a review is to urge u to by Apple Care +. It’s 2.49 a month or 49 dollars for two years of coverage and no I am not associated with Apple. I am just a crazy active person getting about 20k steps a day.
I was wearing the watch yesterday while edging the fence line with my gas trimmer. I rolled my ankle on a slope and fell into the fence. The angle must have been just right and hit the upper left corner of the watch off the fence post shattering the screen.
I was shocked to find that the cost of the screen replacement on the watch is the exact price I bought it for from amazon. It’s 229. With Apple Care + the cost comes down to 69 dollars. With the care plan, u are covered for two years from the date of purchase and they allow for two accidental damage repairs over the life of the policy. The only catch is u have to add the plan within 60 days of purchase.
That’s all I have to say. I used to say AirPods was the most innovative thing Apple has done in ages but now I feel it’s the watch. Apple pays even more amazing on the watch and being able to voice respond to Tex’s is killer since Apple keeps iMessages locked down to their devices only for the time being.
