Apple Watch Series 3: Why I Kept It

2810 ratings | 129622 views
I have a love/hate relationship with Apple's newest smartwatch, the Apple Watch Series 3 with LTE. On one hand, I continue to wear it every day and enjoy getting notifications on my wrist. On the other hand, I find it slow, expensive, and unnecessary. Apple Watch Series 3 Review: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=GViErtJT9ag Music from Epidemic Sound.

thanks for the info: But the apple watch has a camera? can one copy photo a document page like A4 size or smaller note? Any recommendation which one? thanks

Notifications and the ability to store music for running, that’s it! I have a series 2 and there is no reason to get the series 3. Oh and battery life is terrible!

Please please tell me the name of your watch charger.

I work in a job where we can’t have cell phones on us, the Apple Watch is the work around for that since it will keep me connected anywhere in there. Coming from a Moto 360, a fossil founder, and a Apple Watch 1. The apple Watch 3 Lte is the best smart watch ever I’ve ever owned.

until smartwatches can function as standalone devices, the only point of them is the heart rate monitor. i blame carriers for this limitation.
Javonnie England (19 days ago)
Hahahaha! Omg I feel on the floor when he said the watch thought he was having a heart attack like omg I can’t my face hurts !! 🤣🤣

I keep trying to find videos to explain to me why I bought it, but I think its just because its apple and it looks nice and idk man

I use my series 1 for notifications because I work in an elementary school and having my phone out is frowned upon. I also love the challenge of closing my rings daily as well. I am pretty sedentary so this motivates me to move more during school hours!
Why wouldnt you
Adam Kepple (26 days ago)
I drive a lot for work so I bought mine so I can see who's calling me or texting me while im driving with out have to pick my phone up from the cup holder or trying to take it out of my pocket.

When I started using Motorola StarTac-size cell phones in the early 1990s I stopped wearing a wrist watch ... until the first Apple Watch was released. The fitness features are of no interest to me, although I do like the heart monitor and I understand Apple is primarily competing in the "Fitbit" market. But I have serous concerns about the privacy of health information and how easily it could be used against us, particularly in health insurance, law enforcement and employment. I upgraded to the Series 2 but decided not to go for the Series 3. I think the jury is still out on having a high-powered cellular radio in constant contact with your arm. I'm not quite as concerned about the lower powered bluetooth radio, but I still worry about the long-term health risks. The main benefit of the watch is as a second screen -- like having dual screens on your desktop PC. It's not essential but really convenient. I can be in a meeting and read a message unobtrusively, where it would be rude to pull out my smart phone. Even though I don't have the LTE version, I have left my iPhone at my desk and was able to take phone calls all around the office, as long as the watch was in WiFi range. The phone of the watch is surprisingly good. The navigation features are a great enhancement to the phone alone. The ability to control the phone's music while driving is another plus. The phone still lacks a killer app. The battery life is about the same as a smart phone or tablet (about 16 hours of heavy use). It's not a very good watch, as I often find myself looking at a blank screen when I check the time. I wish the watch could play video and stream radio. I wish there were third party faces -- Apple's curated collection is pretty limited. I upgrade from the aluminum Series 0 to the Stainless Series 2. I like the look of the stainless, but I don't like the weight. I may go back to the aluminum on the next upgrade. The sapphire face and heart sensor have held up better on the Stainless watch. Would I buy one again? I guess so ... as I'm waiting for the Series 4.

Well I bought my Apple Watch purely because I believed the hype !!!! After a couple of days using it . I realised it’s not really a must have , however I do drive so I like it giving me directions on my wrist when I’m unsure about the route I’m talking on motorways or highways in American terms . Also , it’s good for a watch , to tell time .

My wife is notorious for not answering her phone, or not responding to texts. Now, she gets every missed called, an text because it on here wrist. When she forgets, the reminder, I made for here, shows up on her wrist. Calendar event she misses, right there all the time. Most of us don’t need a smart watch, but If understand our needs, and get one based how it can help you, thye come in handy. When that happens you’ll find it hard to live without one, Thanks Apple

I can’t use Facebook messenger on Apple Watch. That’s the down side. But the watch is fun with different faces and it’s nice to have hands free and notifications on your wrist.

I've got a series 1, battery life has got a lot worse, used to charge it once every 3 days, now it bums out on my every day by 9-10 at night. It's a very good health tracker though fantastic for working out and the noticifations n stuff are cool too. I really like them.

I love my 42 MM Gold/Coco Apple Watch Series 2!
Alec Allsop (2 months ago)
I was waiting for the 4G version to give me the most accurate running data possible. Using my beats X and the Apple Watch is ridiculously more convenient than what I used to go through strapping my 7+ to my arm. I'd say it's mostly fitness I want it for but also calls and texts are seriously handy. The use it the most to control my house though and in particular Philips Hue bulbs.

Debating whether to get this or the new Fitbit Versa. I’ll go with the Versa and save $200 bucks
JUSTIN PARRIS (2 months ago)
Have a question. Is it worth spending the extra cash on the series 3 or picking up a used series 2 for a few hundred bucks less?
Joe R (2 months ago)
Yes it is worth it it isn't that much more but if you want to save get the non-LTE series 3 it's only $330 instead of $400+$10/month for LTE

Love my Series 3 in fact, I have owned all 3 and this is by far the best one yet! I am mostly impressed with the battery life and the clarity of the 42MM screen! I should have bought 42MM in the past; it is so much easier to navigate using my Homer Simpson sized thumbs!!!
Lukas T (2 months ago)
4-5 days?! Does the LTE one have a bigger battery? Mine drops from 100% to 10% in 48 hours (medium use if even) which is absolutely fine but no way would it ever last for 5 days.
Ross Craig (2 months ago)
Currently I have Samsung S7 and the Motorola 360 2nd Gen watch. I use the watch to read text messages and get sport scores as I am not allowed to use my cell phone at work. I am updating to the iPhone 8Plus this week and I will buy the Apple Watch series 3 non cellular next week
drewflow1 (2 months ago)
keep pushing it in the gym , nothing wrong with being smart and in shape, thanks for the review, i was thinking about getting it to get back in shape myself
Callum McCombie (2 months ago)
The biggest reason I use mine is fitness. If you have a lazy day and close none of the rings, then its simply a polite reminder to get up and go the next day.
Jacob Wolfman (2 months ago)
I bought my series 3 so that I could pair it with a continuous glucose monitor to track my blood sugar in real time. Unfortunately getting the medical device has been a real challenge. So far, I’ve found a lot of utility in the watch aside from the reason I wanted it the most. My phone is always on silent so now I never miss an important text. And I use the Things app to track my daily tasks... it’s set up as a modular element and I always know what I’m supposed to be working on. Additionally, I’ve found some creative uses to use it as a remote for a keynote presentation that I regularly use, which is killer. I feel naked without the watch these days. It’s a good minimalist way for me to “check my phone” without being bombarded with tons of distractions like Facebook and the countless apps I have. I keep my watch’s utility as minimal as possible and that seems to increase its value in my life.

I got a Apple Watch series 3+LTE a few days ago to try to get myself back in shape and so far loving it. The activity rings are great. I have automatic companion apps that track things like Nike+ for running, AutoSleep to track my sleep pattern, heart watch to track heart rate and I bought a Nokia Health and Body + scale to track my weight. All these sync with my phone automatically to give me a breakdown of where I am at via the Health app. Not to mention notifications, seeing who's calling or texting and skipping songs via my wrist. My home security system app also has Watch features so I can arm and disarm my system from the watch and it also sends me pictures from my camera when someone gets in proximity of them! It is expensive and I will probably try to keep it a good 3-5 years before upgrading. PS: Use the workout app on the watch to keep it from thinking you are having a heart attack.

Ok so what i need to know is if i decide to hit this purchase icon and buy the 42mm gps only will i be wasting money cuz im the type of cat that kees adding and removing the apple watch from the cart. When i add it im like oh i got the money and its a cool device then when i see the total i start asking like what will i need it for tho i already own a casio gold watch and im not really a watch guy. I just need someone to convince me that I WONT END UP SELLING THIS ON EBAY THE FOLLOWING WEEK
SUAVEVISIONTV (2 months ago)
If you're that conflicted about purchasing the watch, than listen to what your common sense is telling you......Don't buy the watch, it looks cool, but you don't really need it. Your phone does everything the watch does and more- common sense. Unless you just have to have it- Consumersim

I use several apps on my watch, to start my car, to control my home automation and to enter my checkbook transactions. The watch makes it nice as you don't have to pull out the phone to unlock the door when arriving at home.

Love your videos! I bought mine yesterday (non LTE version) to workout more often. It’s a good motivation however, I still feel like a jerk dropping $380 on it. I also feel like a hypocrite because I ranted so much about my series 2 on how it was useless and dumb when when I sold it...but I think I’m keeping this one. Thanks for your brutally honest videos. Keep it up

How do you get 4-5 days battery?? With 4.2.2 I get 2 days max. While before I could only get a day and would have to charge every night. Anyone else get more than 2 days?
Erick Robles (3 months ago)
My reason was it was doctor recommended. I have an irregular heartbeat and I joined apple heart study to keep an eye on it. If I were to have a stroke the watch would call an ambulance and two of my contacts that I set as emergency in my medical I’d. So basically this watch can save my life. My sister also was told by her doctor to get one cause she has similar issue. It’s also cool how it keeps track of your fitness. My doctor can also obtain the info that the watch has been tracking of my heart. So he has a better idea of how my heart health is. Life saver. Thanks Apple.

The biggest reason for me to get one, is for having the HomeKit-features available without using your phone. Plus, i wonder how it feels to finally stick your phone in to that custom pocket inside your backpack! haha!

I’ve really enjoyed having my series 3 space black. Looks so shiny and looks very smart. I’ve enjoyed having my texts etc on my wrist so I don’t have to get my phone out all the time. Plus it’s really handy with using my AirPods for volume control. Oh and I love using it for Apple Pay. It’s amazing how fast this works.

my wife gave me a series 3 for xmas because after being an Android person since the g1 i switched to iphone and she wanted a reason for me not to go back to android..i find myself asking what i need this for. I had a second gen moto watch and felt the same..though with android atleast there's a lot of watch face development. it looks nice but thats about it...its good for notifications
RottenProduce (3 months ago)
You get all of the health stuff on the series one. I don't understand why anyone would need the series 3 to work out in the gym... it seems more oriented toward rich joggers.
RottenProduce (3 months ago)
But yeah, the series 3 seems like an overpriced status symbol.
RottenProduce (3 months ago)
I have the series one and I close my rings everyday (I'm currently on a 40 day streak). I also like getting notifications.
Jeremy DeBose (3 months ago)
Got mine mostly for bad money management and a good workout companion. Still using it for the fitness and being able to see Notifications is a big plus too.
Kansokusha Kamui (3 months ago)
It's all about the health and fitness. Apple knows that, and that is why they focused on fitness in the AWS3. But fitness is still a niche. Once they make it more about health, everyone will NEED one. I'm into fitness (really really into fitness), so I can't live without a fitness tracker with smart features. Moved from a fitbit, to the doomed MS band 2, to a garmin now. I skipped the AWS3 to see how much they'll improve the battery life on the AWS4, and then I might make the switch.

John Barone (3 months ago)
I’m torn myself on getting a Series 3 (currently use a Martian Notifier right now), but I can definitely see use for the LTE in those instances where your phone is temporarily unavailable. Recently, I had the battery on my iPhone replaced, and then the phone had to be replaced outright b/c of an issue during phone replacement. During all that time, my only available device was my iPad, which wasn’t exactly user friendly while I was out and about. And I thought all that time about just how useful the LTE watch would be right then.
Gail Rose (3 months ago)
I upgraded from series 1 to series 3 LTE and love it. I use it for reminders, email, texts, heart rate, weather, Apple Music, and taking calls while driving. Carrying my 7+ around is now a thing of the past. I can’t imagine being without it.

Not an Apple Watch, but I just picked up a Fossil Q3 because I can't be without the ease of notifications that comes with a smart watch. It's super convenient to see them at a glance without having to take out my phone. It's also nice just to be able to check the time.

That sport band he is wearing is the Grey one, right? Has anyone ever seen it in person? I want to get one, but I’m afraid it might be too similar to the black I already have. My Watch is a Space Black Stainless Steel, not sure if it would match...

The Activity Rings have improved my fitness awareness and gamified keeping active. Brilliant and worth having it just for that! Notifications on the watch are more useful than I expected. More often than not I see texts, breaking news, and calls on my watch first. It’s very handy.

Whats sort of the best spec'ed android wear watch you can get right now? I have a 1st gen Moto360 and looking to upgrade. ( I have tiny wrists, so looking for something similar or slightly smaller than the Moto360) P.S- Fitness features and LTE not important
Drew Page (3 months ago)
I have a first gen Apple watch and still love it. I use it for step counting, heart rate tracking, weather, notifications, news. I don't use Apple watch apps either. They are slow and not very useful. For everything else, my first generation watch works great. No reason to buy a new one, and at the current prices, it's expensive even without LTE.

Never owned iPhone but craved Apple Watch3. My Moto 2Gen stainless steel gorgeous (love EVERYthing customizable) but functionally limited. Bought kid IPhone X just2 takeover his IP6 JUST to get AW3. If I were queen, I’d keep Note 8 (or future Samsung Notes) and Apple Watch would be fully compatible. Right now, only Notification I truly lack/want: texts from Samsung Note 8 to AW3. Perfect combo. Samsung makes best phones. Apple makes superior watch :-)

My Series 0 SS can make it a whole day, 6am to 11pm, and still have about 20% battery left. Recently the back of that watch came loose so I bought a Series 3 to replace it in the meantime and the battery is amazing. I’ll come home at the end of the day with the watch being at 80%. Series 3 definitely works much faster.

Wanted to have a smart watch mostly for the simple use case of running and listening to music while not having to take my phone with me (and still be able to listen wirelessly, and track heart rate, distance and time). However, since I’m allergic to nickel I opted for the new Samsung gearfit pro, which is 3 times cheaper than the steel Apple Watch. Together with an iPhone I can’t recommend that at all, no useful “smart” synergy whatsoever. If I could decide again, I might take the Apple Watch instead.

Got the gps only watch today I had the first generation watch and I like it as a watch it’s nice and light and I hadn’t been a watch wearing guy and now I need a watch and it’s nice with it on silent you can look at the notifications when your free. I waged up the cost of getting my first generation fixed it has some screen scuffs and the battery isn’t much good so went with the latest version and will keep it for as long as the battery lasts

As someone who teaches abroad, I use the AW as a discreet timer for lesson activities and a calculator for printing appropriate amounts of handouts. I also use it to keep tabs on my bank and credit card balances, stocks, crypto-currency, as well as exchange rates and flight tracker when traveling, all at a glance. Fitness, texting, headlines and other notifications are just icing on the cake for me.

I love the series 3! When I’m out & about, I never really pull out my iPhone.

My biggest reason for getting it was workout related. I use it for that, & it’s been a huge motivator toward that goal, but I’ve also come to love the notifications aspect. I use the Watch for my daily water consumption as well as a reminder for things.
