the apple watch series 3 edition reviewed

by:QY Precision      2019-12-19
It was originally published by Benjamin Kramer.
In the fall of 2014, I was one of the few people in the watch industry invited to launch the first Apple Watch.
The next story (
You can read here)
, Is still one of the most read stories I \'ve ever written on HODINKEE, in fact, this is the most discussed here and elsewhere.
Three years later, the Apple Watch remains one of the most controversial and intense watches --
The object of the debate is not only in the watch-some people think it is a simple non-
The problem, there are also some who think it is pure evil that exists in the form of 42mm silicon and aluminum-but also in the field of consumer technology, because of the distortion matrix recognized by Apple (
This will happen when you are the largest company in the history of the world)
This is not the overwhelming success of the company\'s habits.
But if you think the Apple Watch has failed, you are deceiving yourself.
More importantly, if you think it doesn\'t affect the traditional watch space, read what Apple did to Americans by my honorable colleague Joe Thompsonheld, multi-billion-
You don\'t believe me, it\'s a rigid dollar company.
While consumers are unlikely to acknowledge this, the Apple Watch has changed the status quo.
Last week, we saw the introduction of the Apple Watch Series 3 and Series 3 (
Completely placed in ceramic)
-Today, after a whole week with the latter, I am here to give you all my thoughts.
The technical specs for series 3 are posted on hodinkee, but I will summarize them for you soon.
The Series 3 has a pneumatic height gauge that measures the relative height for the first time.
This is very helpful for climbing stairs, skiing, snowboarding, hiking, etc.
It has a new W2 wireless chip, which you guess was developed by Apple and provides better performance with less power.
There is a brand new processor in the 3 Series, 70% faster than the 2 Series.
This is huge, and if you haven\'t tried the Apple watch since the first generation, you\'ll be shocked by the difference in speed.
Finally, the biggest change in the Apple Watch Series 3 is that for the first time, it uses the honeycomb function as its holder
This means that it can run without the Bluetooth range.
It doesn\'t sound like a big deal?
I don\'t think so either until I try.
Think about this new Apple Watch, and what it means for Apple, the traditional watch industry, and our consumers, and let\'s look back at 2014 to see how much has changed since then.
We know the Apple Watch is coming, but it seems to surprise the industry as a whole.
The usual suspects are even dismissive and disrespectful.
Then we see many of them follow Apple\'s footsteps by creating their own version of the smartwatch.
The fossil bought something inappropriate at $0. 26 billion. IWC announced (
But never launched)
Can be connected to the fitness tracker on the strap.
The Montblanc releaseda smartwatch costs about $1,000.
Louis vuitton released one for more than $2,500.
Don\'t worry, though, because this includes LV-
Brand charging box.
Luxury now.
And TAG Heer, who was the first and, of course, the most successful, by producing so-
Known as the connected watch, the price is $1,500, using the technology found in several other watches, and the price of these watches may be just a fraction of the price tag requirements.
But you know what? It worked.
At the moment, the connected watch is actually the number one watch for TAG Heuer in the US.
You wouldn\'t have guessed it.
I know, it\'s so shocking, but LVMH honcho Jean-
Claude Biver told us in March 2015 that his hope was that the connected watch would give people universal access to the watch for $1,500, it\'s actually the cheapest one in the TAG Heuer series.
Is it meaningful to start?
Again, the Swiss are dismissive of the Apple Watch because it\'s not even a watch, right?
How do people who appreciate exquisite watches want a disposable digital device on their wrists?
Still, we now have two of the three large luxury watch groups, and there may be more smartwatches.
This is before we actually talk about the sales numbers of Apple and traditional players, or all of them use the equivalent of off-the-
Shelf specs in the Android operating system while Apple is borrowing a term that they will fully understand --house. Ironic, really.
Do what I do for life-write articles about mechanical watches and use mechanical watches-one of the most interesting things is the reaction of other Watchmen expecting me or any other reasonable Watchman, about the Apple Watch
They think we should hate it.
I don\'t hate Apple watches, and no one else should.
If there is one, the quality and price of the Apple Watch is so embarrassing compared to the Swiss that I really think it will push the machinery manufacturers to get better.
In fact, I think the Apple Watch makes people talk about the watch again.
Does the Apple Watch give me the same emotional satisfaction as my Vacheron, Rolex or Omega?
Of course not, but that\'s not the point.
I think we all know-so it\'s wrong to spit out the bitterness from the souls of so many mechanical watch enthusiasts, whether it\'s from industry employees or consumers.
These feelings for Apple watches and smartwatches generally remind me of a time in my life-not long ago-that \"blog\" is a four-letter word, literally and figuratively, the whole country of Switzerland.
The World Wide Web is a tool through which some people can exchange luxury goods, and the idea is simply unthinkable-if someone does, then, surely no one will make a purchase decision based on what the blog says because no one will really have money!
It is this attitude that led to the loss of Switzerland during the quartz crisis.
To be clear, they did-97% of the watches on this planet today are quartz (hat-
Joe Thompson! ).
When I saw reviews on our website and elsewhere that Apple would never deprive Rolex of its status as a watchmaker, I knew they were definitely right, and when I thought of a timeless mechanic
But Apple has sold more watches than Rolex in revenue over the past 12 months, meaning they may sell more on \"watches\" than others.
Yes, it\'s a bit silly to compare apple and Rolex, but at the same time, according to the widely read Ventrobel report, how can you ignore a company that shipped 11.
5 million smart watches ($4. 5 billion)in 2015.
This is 2015, before the series 2, before the brand new series 3 Watch.
Oh, about the slides at the top of this section, and the slides where Apple crumpled a few feathers while presenting it in the keynote-Apple is comparing itself to Rolex, Omega, and Cartier is not sold in units, because the price is much cheaper, but the income is high, it will definitely surpass these luxury players.
This means that more people spend more money on Apple watches than Rolex, Omega or Cartier watches.
Think about it.
Once again, the Apple Watch did not try to eat lunch in the mechanical watch industry at all, and it certainly did not want to replace the mechanical watch as an emotional amulet for the past few decades.
No matter what the series is, the Apple Watch is something completely different.
It\'s an electronics product and we all know and look forward to its life cycle from Apple and all the other electronics companies.
We change our phones every few years, and Apple watches are the peripherals of the phones, so we\'ll see them roll out halfregularly.
Now, that\'s not to say that some people don\'t think the Apple Watch is a direct competitor to some watches, but as I said in 2014, high
At present, the terminal watch is safe.
It turns out I\'m right.
Switzerland\'s exports to watches under $1,000 have been hit hardest, as we posted on this website yesterday, one of the world\'s largest entry-level watch producers, since the launch of the Apple Watch, the Fossil Group has been hit.
One sentence from fossil CEO Kosta Kartsosis, I think the report is particularly sharp: \"The first trend in fashion is technology.
\"I think it\'s true whether we\'re looking at a $300 fossil, an Apple Watch, or something more expensive.
Of course, mechanical watches are more like-
But we can\'t forget that the complicated pocket watch is the predecessor of the smart watch in many ways.
Other things to consider: Casio G-
According to Casio, Shock has just celebrated the 100 million watch it sold, the most successful watch ever.
Guess G-
Shocked? Thirty-five years.
Apple Watches sold 11 pieces.
There were 5 million units in 2015 alone, and it was reported that demand fell sharply in 2016 50% years agoover-year into 2017.
It seems that Casio will not stick to the title for a long time.
About the things at hand, your first hands
Comments on Apple Watch Series 3 edition.
First of all, I own the 1 Series Apple watch-I really like it for about a month and use it mainly on weekends and when I go to the gym.
I found the Bluetooth connection and processor to be too slow to use on a regular basis.
If I close it for a few days and then reopen it, it will take forever to update with all my emails, text messages and calendar invitations.
Shortly after I got my first Apple Watch, I bought a very good waterproof universal Compax and the Apple Watch went into a drawer.
When Series 2 was released, my colleague Jack Foster told me that I had to give it a try and say it was really a whole new experience because of how fast it was.
I tried it and it was faster, I liked it better than series 1, but in the end it went to the drawer anyway.
I just don\'t think I need it, it\'s definitely the first time in my life to say that about Apple products.
After working with Series 3 for a week, things changed.
At least now.
First of all, let\'s know what we see here.
This is the 42mm version of the Apple Watch-which means it\'s one of the most expensive Apple watches at the moment.
All versions of the watch, both in size and color, have cellular features
Enabled, although you can purchase Series 3 without cell functionality (
You can still buy Series 1 if you want).
This means that this product is a luxury for Apple, so the packaging, fit and finish of the entire product are exemplary.
This version of the beautiful plastic and micro suede box is simply amazing when we are in-House designer (
People with a degree in industrial design)
He pointed out that every piece of the package had incredible tolerances and smooth corners.
It\'s not better for him than Apple doing great packaging, and for me, as someone who lives in the leather world --
Bookbinding and rich mahogany smell, clean and minimalist way of packing is a welcome change.
Did you see the box that came with the luxury watch today?
They are huge, they are wasted, they are completely stupid (
Despite yelling at Amos-
You killed it! ).
This is the version of my Apple Watch Series 3 and the whole case is ceramic.
It\'s not ceramic coated steel, it\'s a real deal.
Actually, it\'s Apple\'s own.
Household ceramics, using powder made of zirconium, oxidized y and alumina.
From there, each case is compressed and then Apple uses 70 diamonds
Polish the CNC machine for more than six hours to cut the case.
After that, the ceramic is polished for a full two hours to reach the gloss you see here.
Similarly, the quality of ceramics with any high
Polished ceramic watches I have seen in the Swiss market.
In fact, Apple has said they are using the same finishing techniques as most of what people might see in Le Brassus or Le Sentier, if you go through Apple\'s book \"Apple Design in California\" and then visit love, you will see the same tools.
When thinking about this question,
Objectively, this Swiss watch is even more impressive, using the Royal Oak calendar of ceramic isAP with a ceramic bracelet, thanks to the multiple face and finish types seen on the border, in the middle
Box and bracelet.
Ceramic AP is one of the hottest watches in the world at the moment, and even for $93,900 it has a miles long waiting list.
While they are very different watches, I wouldn\'t be shocked if many ceramic AP owners ended up buying ceramic Apple Watches-they were just together.
The soft gray color of this new version is such a wonderful color-I really like it, not the white ceramic in series 2.
Now, white ceramics are still available in series 3, but I think white is a very special look that will attract a very special group of consumers, although this gray will be more popular among the wider population.
Oh, I\'m a fan of gray if you haven\'t answered yet.
These two watches, which are not gray, are the base cover, including the heart rate and tactile response sensor, as well as the big red dot at the end of the gray digital crown.
The red dot shows everyone that the Apple Watch does have a cellular function.
Red dot is a strange move by Apple for several reasons.
Visually it\'s quite amazing, and for some, including the Hodinkee designer I mentioned above, it\'s a complete twist --off.
He said, \"it\'s a deal --For me.
I\'m not going to go that far, but, as I told you on Friday, I\'m of color and wouldn\'t jump that far for me.
Still, for a company known for measuring everything they do, it feels a bit extravagant and a bit flamboyant in the most Cupertino way.
If Apple does want some visual cues to let others know that you \'ve used the cell weirdness inside to cope with the new heat, why turn it into a red dot, a brand known and loved by many \"luxury digital products\" consumers-Leica?
Heck, Apple designer Jony Ive and Marc Newson even teamed up with leica at the Red charity auction in 2013.
Again, red dot is not a big deal, but I would be happy to get a background on this.
Why is that?
But the position of the wrist.
2mm thicker than the previous version (We\'re 11 now. 4mm)
Like the early watch, it was great.
That said, if I say I\'m not disappointed that we\'re actually getting thicker rather than thinner in series 3 at all, I\'ll lie-I know it contains more technology, but what I want, man, I want a slim Apple Watch.
Still, the Apple Watch is still a very comfortable tool to wear on your wrist.
When Apple announces that you no longer need to put your phone near the watch, I don\'t think it\'s a big deal.
The watch is put together with the phone-one is another peripheral.
But as soon as I got the chance to install the watch and try it out, I realized that the Apple Watch Series 3 was a giant and I made meangiant, take a step towards making products that many people in Cupertino dream of and products that many in Geneva worry about-it\'s a truly powerful tool that millions of people will rely on as they are on the phone
So how does it work? Effortlessly.
Your watch is connected to your phone using the same number you may have over the years, and the watch and phone become interchanged.
In fact, one can almost replace the other, and yes, what I\'m talking about is the watch that replaced the phone.
The first time I put my phone on the table upstairs and then went to the street to call, I really didn\'t believe it would work. It did. And well.
Of course, when I made the first call, my own phone number came up and the call was very clear in the heart of New York City.
I was obsessed very quickly.
I didn\'t even bring my phone to work with me the next day.
Now, what I haven\'t mentioned yet is that the Apple Watch Series 3 actually has a sister product which is almost a musthave: AirPods.
Apple\'s wireless Bluetooth headsets have been with me since last December, and although the sound quality is not worth the use of enthusiasts, they are very convenient.
I can\'t live without them at this point, even before I receive this sample series 3 attempt, I feel that way.
They are a bigger part of my life, series 3 in the picture.
The picture above is taken with me for the past three days.
Not only is there no phone-let me tell you it\'s an incredible liberation-but I\'m only carrying one AirPod at a time now.
I can call, listen to music, and use Siri only from a single unit, and I throw it in my pants pocket when I don\'t use Siri.
I used the word \"liberation\" above, and I was serious.
With Apple Watch 1 and 2, you\'ll basically get an extra screen that tells you what you \'ve been told on a larger, more powerful, more familiar screen (your phone).
I understand why it\'s not for everyone-and frankly, it\'s not for me in the end.
This is different.
Totally different.
I don\'t know if I \'d think I \'d say that to a smartwatch, but the Apple Watch Series 3 might make your life better-you\'re getting less and less connected with the digital world, the connection with the real world around us will become closer and closer.
I \'ve been using the 3 Series as my only communication device for a couple of days and I find myself looking at Instagram very rarely. Texting less.
Less on the Internet.
I text or call with my watch when I need it-that\'s it.
My definition of \"need\" has completely changed-frankly, I don\'t miss putting my phone in my pocket at all.
Will it be more troublesome to reply to emails and text messages?
Sure, but Siri in the new watchOS 4 is so dialed-
There are very few mistakes in dictation, there is a good \"graffiti\" feature where you can write what you want to say with your fingers-which is definitely good enough for a quick response-and, as I found out strangely in the last few days, if the mail doesn\'t reply for an hour or two, life will continue.
Putting your phone down from your EDC is the series 3\'s most important impact on you, but other benefits of wearing an Apple Watch should also be mentioned.
You start to pay attention to how active you are-either in my case or not.
It reminds you to exercise, stand up and breathe.
The new operating system can monitor your heart
Constantly adjust your heart rate now and compare your resting heart rate, active heart rate, and recovery rate.
To be frank, it\'s a bit disturbing to have so much information about your heart, but it\'s also powerful.
Apple even teamed up with Stanford to launch the Apple Heart Study, which will use the technology to better identify heart abnormalities earlier.
Of course, the potential here is huge.
Oh, did I mention that Apple has been negotiating with Aetna and may be going to 20-million-
Subscribers with full or partial subsidies?
Let\'s take this out and think about what that might mean.
Apple currently has a \"corporate health\" page on its website-although I have never seen it before last night.
The company\'s health page pays close attention to watches.
It quoted executives from big companies as praising the health benefits of Apple Watches for its employees.
But it\'s probably the first and most eye-catching offer.
It comes from Aetna\'s executive vice president and director of Human Resources, Aetna, an insurance company valued at $60 billion, providing health care to more than 20 million people.
Aetna currently offers Apple Watch for free for its 50,000 employees.
On June 2016, Aetna announced that they would \"change the consumer health experience of members using the iPhone, iPad and Apple Watch \".
\"Just last month, CNBC reported that Apple and Aetna met again to discuss how Aetna\'s own employees used the Apple Health program.
Although it has not yet been confirmed, the logic tells us that Apple and Antai are about to announce full cooperation.
If you review last week\'s keynote, you will find that more than half of the time spent on the watch is discussing health issues.
The emotional video played at the beginning called \"Dear Apple\" gives you a good idea of the future.
If you miss it, you can look below.
Apple has done a great job of providing you with reasons to buy this watch for everyone you know, and the video is like this-frankly, the new watchOS 4 has health features.
But don\'t worry, if it\'s not enough, your insurance company will subsidize your Apple Watch soon, and even give it to you for free if it can prove that it can make you healthier.
To focus the conversation back in the hands of our main audience-imagine how long it will take for the Apple Watch to take the crown from Casio or leave the Rolex permanently in the dust.
Imagine how many people who are not interested in smart watches will suddenly wear an Apple Watch.
Imagine how many people are indifferent to what is happening on his or her wrist-most people-will wear an Apple Watch because, heck, it can save your life, if insurance can be paid, why not?
Do you think the ability to upgrade to a mechanical timekeeping watch like TAG Heuer or Louis Vuitton stamped charger case will convince a person to stay away from Apple? Right.
Look what I got here.
I just want Switzerland to be ready-I did-because I love mechanical watches and what they mean to me and millions of others over the years.
But as Apple develops in terms of health, and now the ability to disconnect from a mobile phone and, in turn, create a healthier lifestyle, the traditional watch industry needs to be prepared for catastrophic shocks.
Still, this is enough-what is it like to wear the 3 Series as a watch?
The time to talk about it seems stupid.
Tell the ability when it can do more, but at the end of the day it\'s Hodinkee, if we say, \"Well, we call it a watch, \"That is the question that must be considered.
The 3 Series has dozens of dial types, including the new Explorer dial seen above, and some earlier versions of the operating system similar to the surface of the traditional watch.
Interestingly, although the Apple Watch is not new, it is actually paying tribute to one of the most complicated things in clock learning (
And one of my personal favorites)with its lap-timer.
When you select the \"simulate\" face in the stop watch app, you will see what looks like real-
Dealrattrapante or points
Timing in seconds.
As before, the dial will darken until you raise your wrist to see it.
When configured as described above, it imitates the traditional analog watch in a convincing way.
In all the high versions
The end of the ceramic glory does make the wearer feel that he or she is wearing something special-but everything is relative.
A few days after wearing the Apple Watch Series version 3, I put my gold lang-1 back on and it felt like home.
Apple Watch Series 3, whether released or not, is the Apple Watch we have been waiting.
As mentioned earlier, cell capabilities elevate this product from a special peripheral device to a tool that can be a daily life for millions of people.
The settings above, the 3 Series with honeycomb and an AirPod, I hope to be almost indispensable to many people, as they did to me last week.
For an object that may be out of date in 18 months, this version is a recognized expensive option, and it is stupid when looking at it like this, however, by its very nature, it\'s lovely-it\'s a professionally produced, amazing industrial design that allows excellent watchmakers to run for their money.
It was so beautiful and complicated to make that I was wondering if this watch was just a beta test for the upcoming big ceramic project. It must be.
Because while Apple is indeed the ultimate luxury brand-and it is becoming more \"extravagant\" every year-I\'m curious about how much demand for half-price of $1,349 is --
It\'s really a disposable watch.
That\'s not to say there\'s no place for this version, it certainly has, frankly, it\'s with people like me, but what I\'m talking about here is the bigger picture.
It\'s cute, and it\'s a lot more fun for me than a traditional steel Apple Watch-but I realize it\'s ridiculous for the average audience.
Of course, it is equally absurd that the entire world of mechanical watches is watched every day.
Still, sometimes wanting a stronger desire than needed, this version will definitely find its fans.
Putting aside the price of this watch, I think this Friday, as the Apple Watch Series 3 starts to be available around the world, we are about to start a new chapter in the smartwatch, perhaps a new chapter in the watch.
The Swiss industry will play down the threat, as Nokia did on the iPhone, until it is too late?
Or will the Swiss industry prosper because it represents manual reasons?
Craft, longevity, more
Unlike most digital products, what\'s the appeal of the times?
The answer may be neither one nor the other.
There has been no change in the entire watch industry-some people resist and some accept it.
Now, as the dust settles, where every brand will stand, the world of watches is likely to usher in a new era, all of which is ushered in by the Apple Watch Series 3.
You can read more about the apple Watch Series 3 here.
Bonus: We stopped three random people on the streets of Brooklyn asking them about their new Apple Watch Series 3, what do three completely unfamiliar people think about the new Apple Watch?
Okay, look at it.
