Apple Watch Sport 1G Review

Summary

The Apple Watch is Apple’s first try at the smart watch market and I can’t go any further than to say it’s pleased me since the day I bought it. It does everything I need it to do, showing my messages, showing who’s calling me and updating me on my fitness is what it does best. In the back ground of this device is something you might not expect. Under the main features, the watch can show you many things your phone would do but right on your wrist. For example it can show you recent posts on Instagram from your followers even the likes you’ve gained from posts. However what lacks on this device and the Apple watch series 2 is the amount of Applications you can download.

In The Box

When I first bought this product the box it came in was something new, it really appealed to me. This new box was very surprising and I didn’t expect it. But there’s something i’m really confused about and its the fact that the box is very heavy considering the amount of stuff inside the box, it just doesn’t make sense

The product comes in a long white box with the Apple logo and watch on the top and that’s it for the outside of the box apart from the contents on the back and bar-codes.

Inside the box it’s all neatly packed away. Has a long packet where the instructions slide out of, this sits on top of the package. Here’s the magic, the gloss white container which holds the watch, this box is something I’d keep because it nothing like I’ve seen from Apple and feels really premium even though its only the box.image3

If you take out the gloss white container you find the watch neatly packed away in the cut out spot. Underneath the lid it has the Apple logo again with watch also this time sport edition professionally written on a suede material.

As you can see the configuration I got was the Apple watch sport with the braided cable as it was a lot cheaper than the upmarket configurations which are not on sale by Apple any longer.

Beneath the watch container is the newly designed charging plug and extended magnetic charging cable. This was the first time Apple have made a longer cable than the basic length that comes with all iPhones. The plug has been redesigned, now the pins flip out for a more compact design which will fit nicer where ever you store it.

Specifications and Availability

The apple watch is available almost anywhere, but I have the Amazon link below, you can purchase them for £249/$279 respectively:

Pros and Cons

Pros:

  • Tracks your fitness
  • Comfortable
  • Software interface looks crisp and is easy to use
  • Keeps you up to date with news and social media
  • Lets you know when you have a message better than the usual phone vibrate

Cons:

  • not fully water proof only splash proof
  • Few games to download
  • Aluminium case scratches easily.

Final Verdict

At the end of the day it’s a watch it does what its meant to do with a lot of features added on the side to make your life easier. Not by just popping up when you get a text or phone call but helps you track your fitness, some social media and receive notifications for most the apps you have on your phone. I have to admit it’s not perfect but for the reduced price you can’t go wrong.
