Apple Watch
 
Seems many gays got this. Also it is much cheaper than getting a real watch. So who is using it and can someone tell me difference between Watch 3 GPS and Watch 3 GPS and Cellular? I am confused as to if I would need to insert a sim in the Watch?

I see more women wear it than men. I think smart watches are gimmicky. Get a real watch if you want to use it to tell time. I don't enjoy charging the smartwatch every 3days or so.

What’s the difference between GPS and GPS + Cellular?
GPS

Apple Watch Series 3 (GPS) lets you send and receive text messages, answer phone calls, and receive notifications when it’s connected to your iPhone via Bluetooth and Wi-Fi. The built-in GPS works independently of your iPhone for distance, pace, and route mapping in workouts.
GPS + Cellular

Apple Watch Series 3 (GPS + Cellular) has all the same features, as well as built-in cellular. It gives you the freedom to send and receive text messages, answer phone calls, and receive notifications even when you don’t have your iPhone with you.
Cellular Carrier Support

Connecting Apple Watch to a cellular network requires the same carrier as your iPhone, and we’re adding carriers all the time. If your current carrier does not support Apple Watch, cellular functionality won’t work until support is provided.
It can connect to your iPhone when itʼs nearby, a previously joined Wi-Fi network, or cellular. Your Apple Watch can connect to LTE networks. ... The Cellular button turns white when your cellular plan is active, but your watch is connected to your iPhone using Bluetooth or Wi-Fi.Jan 11, 2018
It doesn't use a sim card. You set it up using your iphone.

You have to do it. After your apple watch service is activated you use your iPhone to set it up.
Here's a list of supported Carriers

I think I will get it since it is quite cheap for a watch.

The watch was launched on 9/22/2017. Does that affect your decision? The 4th should have better battery runtime.

Is 1k+ your price range of cheap? Would you replace the band?

KAC Jun 26, 2018 12:51 PM

KAC Jun 27, 2018 01:01 PM

KAC Jun 27, 2018 07:48 PM

Default is the plastic / rubbery band thing.

Elysian Jun 28, 2018 07:46 AM

Hopefully the 4 doesn't look so much like a toy.

Silent-Runner Jun 28, 2018 03:16 PM
