    Recently my series 3 has been awfully buggy, Fixes/ recommendations on upgrade?

    For the past couple of months, I've had to reset my apple watch to upgrade to the new os or to even pair it to my iPhone 11 pro max. Today it wouldn't detect my iPhone so I ran another reset, but now it fails to pair at all (It tries to pair then unpairs) and is now stuck on the setup screen. I...

    Speaking out loud - updating my Series 3 to watchOS 7.6

    This morning, I updated my iPhone X to 14.6 from 13.7, after updating, it said my Apple Watch is outdated. So, I said, alright, how bad could it be to update to 7.6? Well, I finally experienced what others have been complaining about. The unpairing process is not as bad as I thought it it would...

    Maximize Series 3 storage

    Does anyone know how to maximize Series 3 storage? Photos app takes up the most room even though no photos are loaded on my watch. Anyone know a way to delete the Photos app? Same question for other apps like Mail? Series 3 has very little memory. For media I really just want podcasts, music...

    Series 3 - Rebooting after WatchOS 7

    Hey together, My Series 3 (bought this year) keeps restarting after the upgrade to WatchOS 7. Before that, it worked really great and stable. I did a complete reset (and didnt restored a backup) but the problem is still there. It happens 2-3 times per day, randomly, when wearing it (no action...

    Unable to update Apple Watch series 3

    watchOS 7 came out today but I’m unable to update my watch because it has no free space. The thing is, I have no apps installed and going to the storage usage in settings shows that there is almost no space taken by anything on the watch. So I can’t free any space and I can’t update.

    Lite WatchOS

    Is it just me or do a lot of you all think a lot of folks could benefit from a lite watchOS option? Not only for older devices but for those who just don’t need/want all the extras. I bought my watch with the intention of using all the time and now I use it to read text without pulling my phone...

    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

    I ordered a series 3 from Verizon and it is shrink wrapped!

    I ordered a brand new space black series 3 with cellular from Verizon and I was surprised it came in shrink wrapped instead of the usual pull tab packaging. Is this normal? I haven’t opened it yet and I’m planning to return it if it turns out it is a used watch re packaged. Any thoughts is...

    Series 3 will suffer greater than normal resale decline next year

    As an AW3 LTE owner who is thinking of upgrading to AW4 LTE, it occurred to me that when the Series 5 is released my AW3 LTE will suffer a sharper resale decline than other watches have done during previous release cycles. Why? Well, I suspect next cycle we’ll see more AW4s that have full ECG...

    Digital Crown has more of a 'click' on new Series 3 than on Series 2?

    I've been using my new Series 3 for a few days now, and one of the first things I noticed was that the Digital Crown seems to have more of a distinct 'click' than my Series 2 (SS) or what I remember of my Series 0 (Sport). Is this the case for all Series 3 watches, or did I get lucky?

    How does the Watch behave when cellular is never enabled to begin with?

    Title says it all... When cellular is never enabled on the Watch, does it behave the same as the GPS-only Watch? Is the icon for cell connection still present in Control Center?

I have calibrated my watch correctly and it works fantastic but now I would like to track the location of my runs and am thinking of upgrading to either a used Series 2 or a Series 3. Making calls isn't something I really need on a watch but I...
