Do you have one? What do you use it for ? What do you like most about it?

Which model do you have?

Would you recommend it to someone else?

I just got a Series 3 Apple Watch for Christmas. I had a older model Fitbit before so I was familiar with the step tracking and fitness features, but I like the additional things I can do now that I couldn't on my Fitbit. I love being able to check e-mail, send texts, set alarms, and check my calendar right from my watch.

So far I love it and would definitely recommend it. It's comfortable and doesn't feel bulky on my arm. The only negative I have is that it needs to be charged a lot more often than my Fitbit. I could go 4-5 days between charging my Fitbit, but the Apple Watch needs to be charged every 1-2 days.

I just got one for Christmas, but I've had it since the week before Christmas. I love it so far! It's the series 1, I think.

I like it for the activity tracker, texting, controlling my podcasts/music remotely, alarms, stopwatch, timer, calendar, reminders, remote camera trigger, star gazer app, weather, maps (it vibrates when a turn is coming up), and as an actual watch.

I also got an app that is supposed to help with developing healthy habits, but I haven't figured out how to use it yet.

I have a series 2. I love it. I've worn it every day for the year I've had it. The activity rings are good. I like the step tracker. At school I love using the timer to keep me on track. Also it's great to have my phone locked in the closet and I still receive my texts and phone calls.

I got one for Christmas last year and I didn't know I wanted one, but now I love it! I use it mostly for the fitness tracking and heart monitor, but I also like that I can check text messages and get alerts without having my phone in my hand. I love talking on it while I cook or drive. I like that when I'm using my phone for directions it also buzzes on my wrist when I'm supposed to turn. A month after I got the watch I got the wireless earbuds for my birthday, so this is my very favorite thing! I can use my watch to control my music, either manually or by voice (Siri). This is so great when I'm working out. I also use like to use the timer when I'm cooking and even at school because I can just start it with Siri. I have the series 1.
