Apple Watch Series 3 Review

Thursday, May 24, 2018

I’ve had my Apple Watch for six months now and I feel that is adequate time to give an honest review and….


There are many, many reasons I love it, but I will highlight my five favorite reasons.

1. The ability to have the speaker phone on your wrist! Graham is really interested in holding my phone when people call and he always ends up hanging up on them. Since I can use my watch as a phone, we just make calls on that and I can continue my normal routine and G never asks to hold it.

2. Quickly checking text messages. How many times does you phone go off and you feel like you have to get to it ASAP? Now, I just glance at my watch and if the text can wait, I just leave my phone wherever it is.

3. Speaking of leaving your phone, you can ping your phone to find it and I do this ALL THE TIME. If my phone is not in my direct line of sight then I ping it. Chris gets so annoyed and I think it is hilarious!

4. Tracking my fitness. I love being able to close all my activity rings for a day. It is a competition I have with myself everyday! And, your watch encourages you! It will tell you, “You can do it, Sarah!” or it will say, “It’s time to stand up!” (It JUST told me to stand up, haha!) It can track your heart rate or help you through breathing exercises. Also, it is really accurate. If you’re really into fitness, I definitely recommend the Apple Watch!

5. The weather! You can customize the face of your watch and one thing I’ve put on my watch face is the weather. I love checking it first thing when I wake up because it helps me ensure I dress Graham appropriately for the day. I don’t have to get on my phone and wait for the weather app to load. I just quickly glance at my watch and what weather is in store for the day.

Bonus: It is waterproof! So I don’t need to worry about it getting ruined or accidently getting it wet!

There are a million other perks and benefits to having an Apple Watch. Honestly, I was skeptical about getting one, but now I am addicted! If you’re on the fence, I really think that you’ll love it!

PS: I have the 42mm because I already can't see and I needed the bigger one to be able to see. Also, Chris thinks I'll get tired of wearing it and will give it to him. He is really, really wrong. And, I want a more formal band for it, but I just keep forgetting to buy one!


  1. I just got my Apple Watch as an early anniversary gift from my husband and I LOVE it too! I am obsessed! Plus, unlike most fitness trackers, I just think it looks good too!
