Apple Watch Sport Series 1 Review

This a review of the Apple Watch Sport, Series 1 version

Image

In The Box
Apple Watch
Charger
Quick Start Manual

Image

Out of the box it looks like an ordinary watch. Small & compact but once you turn it on. You see all the usual Apple icons in smaller form.

I wanted one for ages as it interested me as it works alongside your iPhone once you have paired the 2 devices together via the Bluetooth on your iPhone.

Image

Battery

It is supposed to last the same time that you would expect from the iPhone but alas it's even worse. Even if you don't use it. The battery drains completely.

Image

Apps

There is a lack of apps considering that this is a fitness gimmick & small version of an iPhone. You can add apps & change your Watch faces in the Apple Watch app on your iPhone.

Notifications

When you turn your iPhone Bluetooth on you are supposed to receive the notifications on the Watch when you are not using your iPhone but I found that they did not come up.

After all the hype has died down it is really just a gimmick & you are better off just sticking to your iPhone or iPad.

Pro's

Looks nice
Comfortable on your wrist
Plenty of wristbands to choose from

Con's

Seriously drains the battery quite easily
Lack of useful apps
Expensive for a gimmick
