Apple Watch review (Updated for OS 2.0)


The Apple Watch is the best smartwatch we've used, and the first that feels friendly and has character. Watch OS 2.0 adds needed app and Siri abilities.

A few months into its release, it’s still difficult to say whether the Apple Watch is going to break into the mainstream. It’s also too early to say whether our initial warmth toward it is because it’s new and fun. Only more time spent with the new...

Apple Watch review: a status symbol for iOS devotees


The Watch is the nicest smartwatch available, but it's more status symbol than wearable revolutionary. Most of the Watch's features can be categorized as nice to have (at best) or superfluous (at worst). As such, if you're not enamored with the Watch's...

Finely crafted hardware ; Strong app support ; Lots of personalization options ; Easy-to-use fitness tracking ; Best smartwatch available

Third-party apps can feel sluggish ; Some users will crave more control over notification settings ; Expensive

I don't think the Watch is for me. While I appreciate the thoughtfulness, quality and ingenuity of the hardware design, it's just not my style. Also, getting a Watch means locking one's self into an iPhone universe, and while it's an excellent handset,...

Apple Watch review


I'm up early to try to kickstart a habit at the gym, trying to teach myself to like the routine. My phone and wallet and car keys get in the way; I like to come here as minimalist as possible. My watch is the only thing that feels natural and it's...

Beautifully constructed. Handles messages well. A solid fitness tracker. Hundreds of apps. Can send and receive voice calls via an iPhone. Lots of design choices. Apple Pay-enabled. Stores music for local playback over Bluetooth.

Battery only lasts a little more than a day. Most models and configurations cost more than they should. Requires an iPhone to work. Interface can be confusing. Many apps load slowly. Lacks built-in GPS.

A year old and even more affordable, the Apple Watch remains the best designed and most capable smartwatch you can buy -- but we're hoping that the inevitable sequel makes it more of a must-have product.

Apple Watch review: Beautiful form, frustrating function


The Apple Watch's little annoyances are harder to ignore than the iPhone's, iPad's, and Mac's, because you're wearing them right on your wrist.

Haptic feedback and force touch gesture work well ; Supports Apple Pay even without an iPhone present ; Well-designed Activity and Workout apps provide good tracking and motivation

No way to hide built-in apps from the home screen ; Many apps and glances are slow to load

The Apple Watch excels as a remote control and activity tracker, but it's slow and requires a Bluetooth connection to your iPhone, among other quirks. Still, it's hard not to admire a smartwatch this...

Apple Watch Sport Review


The Apple Watch Sport is a jack of all trades master of none device. The Apple Watch line has great potential but currently requires a software update to reach more of its potential.

Exceptional build quality with good material choices ; Refined OS and interface ; Excellent out of the box functionality from 1st party apps ; Feels natural on the wrist ; Intuitive activity tracking ; Does not require separate activation with a...

Slow 3rd party apps especially between watch and iPhone ; Requires daily charge (18 hour battery life) ; Some glitches both with WatchOS and iPhone Apple Watch app ; Some features seem half-baked or incomplete ; Requires a WiFi or Bluetooth connection...

The Apple Watch Review


Prior to the launch of the Apple Watch, there had been rumors that Apple would make a watch for quite some time. In a broader sense, the wearables industry has become an area of significant interest as the next growth market after devices like tablets...

Finally, we get back to the question of whether Apple will be sell people on the concept of a watch. In the months since I first used the watch I’ve ended up wearing it every day. I distinctly noticed its absence when I forgot the charger on a trip. I...

Apple Announces the Apple Watch; Available Next Year


Apple has thrown their hat into the wearable ring with the Apple watch, which tries to bring a better user experience to the watch without trying to adapt iOS to the watch with multi-touch gestures that we're familiar with on the iPhone.

The Apple Watch must be paired with an iPhone to work properly. It starts at $349 USD and will go on sale early 2015.

Apple Watch Review – Controversially compelling


To call the Apple Watch polarizing is to do the splenetic depths of online argument around it an injustice. For the past few weeks I've been living in the eye of that storm, the contentious wearable on my wrist. I've worked with it. I've traveled with...

If I have a smartphone in my pocket and a tablet in my bag, and perhaps a laptop too, do I really need a smartwatch on my wrist as well? Like every smartwatch I’ve tried, Apple Watch is imperfect. Much of that – like underwhelming third-party apps – is...

Apple iWatch this year available


2.5-inch Apple iWatch coming up : Once Samsung put the Galaxy Gear to market, soon arose the question; ´What will Apple do´. Such a smart watch fits perfectly with the innovative brand Apple. Yet it remained silent for a long time, until beginning of...

One of the negative comments about the smart watches is that they provide little added value compared to a smartphone. Apple wants to make a distinction with the iWatch by adding additional sensors to the watch. It is said that the smart watch will be...
