Apple Watch Series 3 Review
The Apple Watch Series 3 is one of the newest additions to Apple’s budding lineup of new products, and we’re big fans. The improvements over previous generations encompass both shape and form factor, but most importantly improve on battery life and connectivity.
A perfect fitness companion, we’ve seen Apple Watch grow from being a pricy accessory to a vital workout tool; we cannot imagine our life without it. Packed with features, Apple Watch brings the best of your iPhone onto your wrist. It’s clear the design team spent time working to keep the interface streamlined and simple, while connecting users to their text messages, emails and music while on the go- in addition to stats we find ourself missing when it’s not nearby or on our person.
Apple Watch can share reminders about projects or tasks we need to complete, and can nudge us to stand when we’ve been too stationary, encourage us in our workout goals, and even remind us to breathe when our bodies need some extra air. Thousands of integrated apps allow us to track things like running distances and speed, food and water consumption, even the ability to track sleep patterns. These tools lead us to overall healthier lives, as we make ourselves aware of the small things which add up to create a big impact.
At 42 millimeters, we’d consider this another example of something small making a big splash. We’d always like longer and longer battery life, but it’s also understood that something so small with so much connective power would get us mostly through a long day plus a trip to the gym, needing to charge at some point during that time. It’s a worthy substitute, however, allowing us to leave our phone in the locker room, and focus on the task at hand, one step at a time. 4 out of 5.
