Really? I've worn my series 0 stainless steel every single day since launch... and it still works great. Literally wear it _every_ day and use it all day to control my smart house (using Siri), get notifications, view the weather, keep track of my workouts use shared grocery lists, etc.Well my Series 0 that Ive taken excellent care of barely functions now. Software or hardware it doesn’t matter Im not impressed.
Agree 100%. Apple really needs to rethink the UI and controls in my opinion. Trying to swipe the screen and turn the crown with sweaty hands while working out is not fun. The Gear S3 UI and rotating bezel win on that front big time.Yes, it's a slick watch, but, I do like my Samsung Frontier Gear S3 better. I owned two iterations of the iWatch, and have found the Gear to be more intuitive and useful for my purposes. And I think it looks a lot better for me.
Still the, iWatch is nice and I look forward to watching as the two brands make things even better.
Yep, bought the series 3 LTE, my first watch of any kind in about 50 years!That was how I saw the original two versions. I bought a Series 3 last year sort of on a bet with myself and knew within a couple of days that I was definitely keeping it. It's like the iPhone 4. It's not that everything is perfect and nothing can be improved, but the whole usability/functionality spectrum just came together to make a genuinely useful (for me) tech tool. I bet the sales numbers include a lot of new owners like me.
Same exact boat. Series 0 since shortly after launch. It’s a little slow but no major issues.Really? I've worn my series 0 stainless steel every single day since launch... and it still works great.

Sure - it's a little slow... but it always was. I can't really say much has changed over the years.
This is probably the best Apple product I've ever bought as far as return on investment. Much cheaper than an iPhone and it's lasted me 3 years of every day use.
That said: I am planning on upgrading when the next Watch upgrade is announced. Mostly I want to upgrade to get the sweet new speed
I was actually getting ready to post this very same comment.Apple has no competition when it comes to smartwatches and tablets.
Yes, I believe it can only get better.Pretty soon, others will start to imitate that and even copy it's aesthetics. I'm glad I waited to skip two generations and pulled the trigger on the AW3. You're absolutely right, it can only get better from here since they are focusing more on the health aspect of the Watch. I have found it very useful in terms of kicking my arse to get up and get active, some people just needs that slight zap from the wrist.
In comparison to other watch bands?Rarely see them in public except for in the dance studio and usually worn by women. Smart watches now have stand-alone voice and data capability which makes them more useful but they're still not prime until they improve battery life and less bulky.
