    What do you do with your Apple Watch?

    Hello All, I've had an Apple Watch since the launch of the original, since then I've moved to S3 and next month I plan to move again to a S6. When people who aren't as up to speed with Apple and Technology in general ask me what I use it for I just reply with "It is a luxury convenience" - This...

    Is Series 3 still worth buying?

    Series 3 user, I want to outsource opinion if it's still worth buying? I'm thinking of getting an Apple Watch, is Series 3 a good buy? Series 5 is still expensive in my opinion so getting that would not be a good option as I just upgraded to an 11 Pro. Thank you

    Switching audio from Apple Watch during call

    Here's a scenario -- I'm out walking, listening to music on my bluetooth earphones, streaming from my iPhone. I have a non-cellular AW Series 3. A call comes in and I press answer on my watch. Wanting the audio and mic source to be my BT earphones instead of talking into my watch, I try to...

    Apps not updating/syncing to AW3 today

    So I noticed today that Spotify app on my AW3 was not working with my iPhone 11 Pro Max. I went into the Apple Watch app on my iPhone and saw that apps in the app list at the bottom (needed updating) were just all spinning. I tried uninstalling Spotify, but it just sat on "uninstalling"...

    Apps Apple Books audiobooks on Apple Watch 3

    I just purchased an Apple Watch 3 (all software up to date), and I can't find how to sync/download my Apple Books audiobooks onto my watch for offline listening. For that matter, I can't find an Apple Books app at all. Is this possible at all? I also have an Audible account with other books on...

    Apple Watch 3 mistake?

    I don’t own an Apple Watch yet but see they are $259 for the 42mm GPS version on Amazon and Best Buy. I don’t need the heart monitor on the 4 and none of the other features on the 4, while nice are not enough to draw another nearly $200 out of my wallet. I feel $250 is a great deal for a series...

    Watch setup for a kid?

    Hi all! We just replaced my wife’s 38mm series 3 with a 4. Our goal is for our ten year old to use the 3 when he’s out in the neighborhood so we can call, text him, etc. There seems to be some hypothetical limitations that I’m not sure exist or not, so I’m hoping for some clarity and...

    Prospective New Apple Watch buyer. S3 or S4?

    Ive never owned an Apple Watch. I want to buy the base gps model. I definitely see the AW4 is a little better than the AW3. However, being on a budget I like how I can get the AW3 42 for only $309 vs $429 for the AW4. I’m young and in great health so not too concerned about the newer fall and...

    iMessage Compatible Smart Watches

    I tried an Apple Watch 3 and I couldn't get service when my phone was not with me. I am looking for a smart watch that I can respond to iMessages and other text messages without needing my phone in range. Do I have any options besides the Apple Watch (which didn't work for me anyways)?

    Lefties

    I love the ability to wear the Apple Watch on my right wrist. I also switched the bands around to make it a completely left-handed watch.
