Apple Watch Sport review

The Apple Watch Sport is the cheapest Apple Watch you can buy, but it's still pricey. You can only use it with an iPhone, but it can make and receive calls, receive texts and display calendar notifications. How easy is it to use and does the battery...

Apple Watch review: A superb smartwatch, despite the price

 

The Apple Watch is a highly capable smartwatch, even though it is far from the most affordable

Given the company’s track record, it would be foolish to bet against Apple completely changing the way wearables are perceived. And in the time I've used it I’ve come to expect the Apple Watch to be on my wrist at all times. The true test of any...

Apple Watch 42mm Space Black Stainless Steel Case Black Sport Band

 

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 Sport 38mm Silver Aluminum Case ( Blue Sport Band)

 

There has been one firmware update , mostly addressing performance and reliability (and adding extra language support, plus access to more emoji). Otherwise, for the most part, the Apple Watch still does what it did before. I still use it in the same...

The Apple Watch is a beautifully constructed, compact smartwatch. It's feature-packed, with solid fitness software, hundreds of apps, and the ability to send and receive calls via an iPhone.

Battery only lasts a little more than a day; most models and configurations cost more than they should; requires an iPhone 5 or later to work; interface can be confusing; sometimes slow to communicate with a paired iPhone.

The Apple Watch is the most ambitious, well-constructed smartwatch ever seen, but first-gen shortfalls make it feel more like a fashionable toy than a necessary tool. That may change with a big software update later this year, though.

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...

Apple Watch Sport review: the definitive timepiece for Apple fans

 

Andy spends a few weeks with the Apple Watch Sport -- Cupertino's vision of what a smartwatch should be.

Classic design with a touch of modern flair ; The hardware is well balanced ; The watchOS is the most mature smartwatch OS around

Ludicrously expensive for the common tech enthusiast ; It’s exclusivist: Apple ecosystem, or GTFO ; What’s the point of smartwatches now again?

: I can’t say that it’s the best smartwatch available, because each has various strengths and focal points in different market segments, but it’s probably the best in its price range. Although it’s overly complicated in some cases and over-engineered...

For a first attempt Apple have made a great product, which they will develop

I have a 42mm Sports. Value - it costs less to buy than to service a Rolex and less than many designer watches, which only show the time. I agree a lot with AnnJ. I wear a watch 24X7. It is very comfortable by any measure. I find a quiet hour a day at...

Great notification system, incredibly motivating fitness device

I hadn't worn a watch regularly in well over a decade but have worn a wrist-based Fitbit (Charge) for a while which I found a little irritating so I was concerned I wouldn't take to the Apple Watch Sport. I needn't have worried, the watch is very light...

The Apple Watch Series 1 is physically identical to the original Apple Watch but has a lower price, an updated S1P dual-core processor, and ships with watchOS 3. Our review of the original Apple Watch, from April 2015, is below.
