Description

Apple clearly believes smartwatches are here to stay – the Watch 4 utterly proves that. The design alone is a big upgrade, with the screen offering far more visibility, and while the health benefits are only going to help a subset of users, they’re welcome and show the direction Apple is heading. If it had better battery life, and thus able to track sleep, the Watch 4 could have been the perfect smartwatch.

Apple Watch 4 44mm Review
The Apple Watch Series 4 is the fastest, most connected and best overall smartwatch around, but its battery life and watch face options often fall short of the competition.

PROS
  • The Apple Watch Series 4 offers a larger, crisp display that shows more with less bezel, super fast speed and a louder speaker. It adds high and low heart-rate detection, fall detection with SOS trigger and an FDA-cleared ECG app for more detailed heart readings.
CONS
  • Starting prices are higher than last year. Battery life still won't last past two days. Watch face options are still very limited in choice and function. It only works with iPhones.

    I upgraded from a Series 1 and absolutely love it! The clarity with calls is excellent and the walkie-talkie feature is great with friends. Of course I can still text and email, even without my phone nearby.

    I ordered my iWatch 11/16 and chose 1 day shipping. It came in an adequate amount of time but my issue isn’t with the delivery. My issue is that nowhere in the description does it say that it is incompatible with Verizon Wireless. Actually it just says that it is (GPS + Cellular). I bought this as an early birthday present for my boyfriend but he can’t even get the cellular setup to work. We called Verizon and the representative informed us that unfortunately it is not compatible with their system. Even she thought that it was odd, she went above and beyond to try and make it work for us but no dice.

    Got it the same price as the apple website + the two day shipping. Original item and came carefully packaged. I absolutely love it. I also bought a band accessory that came in the same day.

    I bought the watch fully expecting to simply add it to my Verizon account through the set up in the Watch app. That’s how it’s supposed to work but when I tried, I got the message from Verizon that my watch is not compatible with Verizon (like several other reviewers have posted here). I knew that was wrong since these watches are not network dependent so I called Verizon. I spent nearly an hour on the phone with 5 different reps only to be told by the last one that my watch was, in fact, not compatible and that I should return it and buy one from Verizon. I still didn’t believe them and decided to try one more time with my local Verizon store. The guys there were fantastic (Boylston St in Boston). They filed a trouble ticket with Verizon and 48 hours later my watch was recognized by the Verizon network and I could set it up. I’m sure all Verizon had to do was to whitelist the IMEI in their database and I can’t understand why the Verizon CSR’s on the phone couldn’t figure that out. Seems the store guys have better access to tech support from the mother-ship.Don’t be concerned about buying the cellular Apple Watch here, through Amazon. If you get one and it isn’t recognized by the network, don’t bother calling Verizon, just go to your local Verizon Store and they can get it working.

    I really like this watch for the health aspects, as well as being able to respond to texts and calls quickly when away from my phone. Unfortunately, it does require your phone for pretty much everything and you can’t even play music over the speaker, making it useless except for calls. You can use Bluetooth headphones with it, but it kinda sucks that you have to. The ECG is a really nice addition, but again, not super necessary (at least for me). Still – as an accessory – this is a really solid device and I use it quite a lot more than I thought I would. The fact that I can easily answer calls when driving is a huge plus, since I missed a lot of them before since I obviously didn’t want to look away from the road or take my hands off the steering wheel to grab my cell phone. If you would like an accessory for convienience and health monitoring, I recommend it – it’s just nothing revolutionary otherwise. It’s also sucks that you have to buy a lot of the apps… I know that’s not apples fault, but I expected more free apps for a nearly $400 device. :/

    I had a fitbit that cost a fraction of what this cost. It was much better at tracking activity and exercise. You can walk for 20 minutes and it will show you walked for 2 minutes. If you climb 20 flights of stairs over the course of a day it may say you did 3 flights. Support, so far, is no help. This app is so frustrating that it may actually make you say to hell with it and exercise less. It’s a shame because the watch does have some other very useful functions. From my past experience with Apple it seems odd that they would put out something so poorly designed.Update: the crystal is now broken. It is extremely fragile. I can’t tell you how much I regret buying this watch. They want $299 to fix a $400 watch. Save yourself aggravation and money and do not buy this poorly designed product.
